Post-Everton: Better Late Than Never

Listen to Arsenal Review USA
Find your new guide to all things Arsenal beards at iTunes, the raw RSS feed or our archive.

Arsenal's growing pains continue with a lackluster draw in Istanbul followed by a last-gasp draw at Goodison Park, leaving the Gunners with plenty of work to do in the Champions League and in the tactics room. Helping us talk center forward shuffling and Champions League qualifying nerves will be Chris Jenkins of Arsenal America, followed by Jordan and Channelle of the Fresno Gooners recounting their 6,000 mile trip across the US -- and all their stops in between -- to see Arsenal in New York City, plus the Wanker of the Week resurrected, some prize trivia involving Dennis Bergkamp's favorite opponent and a fairly lengthy primer on current Arsenal beards...

Post-Crystal Palace: Picking Up Where We Left Off

Listen to Arsenal Review USA
Blinded by vanishing spray? Well, sorry, for you this line is pointless: everyone else can easily navigate to the new pod via iTunes, the raw RSS feed or our archive.

Arsenal carry their choice brand of knife-edge entertainment into the new season with a nerve-shredding, last-gasp win at home over a well-organized (read: medievally defensive) Crystal Palace side. Helping us pick out the positives from Arsenal's setpiece defending (no, we weren't aware of these positives either), decide between an increasingly difficult Giroud-Sanogo selection choice and shuffle lineups pre-Besiktas will be returning guest Elliot Smith, plus your feedback on vanishing spray, unidentified flying bird poo and contest SWAG courtesy of Ruffneck Scarves...

PODCAST PREVIEW -- YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SEASON

Here at Arsenal Review USA, we like to cut right to heart of the world's meaty issues: the ever-changing geopolitical landscape, the Ukraine crisis, Arsene Wenger's jacket zipper, and Arsenal (in roughly that ascending order of importance). That's why, with the start of the Premiership fast-approaching, we're asking you to tell us...

What about the start of the season are you looking forward to even more than vanishing spray?

It could be seeing Alexis Sanchez roast every opponent in sight, or just the thought of an unemployed Tony Pulis panhandling directly in front of a huge puddle that's constantly being plowed by an unceasing line of speeding cars, but whatever it is we're asking you to leave us your thoughts on the podcast using the widget below or by simply calling 77-55-REVIEW from Google Hangouts*.

Anyone who leaves us their thoughts will be put in the hat to win a free Arsenal scarf courtesy of Ruffneck Scarves (be sure to leave your email address so we can contact you to let you know you won -- don't worry, no spam here!)...



*If you're not sure how to get your soundbite on the podcast, it's pretty simple: hit "Start recording" on the widget. And talk (you can find a full rundown of the process if you need it here). We'll take whatever you send us and edit it down into a nice little soundbite to be played back with several others on the next podcast.

Post-Community Shield: Ginormous Dinner Plate of Success

Listen to Arsenal Review USA
Take a rest from booing Nasri and relax, while listening to us boo Nasri: grab the new pod from iTunes, the raw RSS feed or our archive.

Arsenal showed they were bound and determined to right their big game wrongs as they piled the pressure on Manchester City from the get-go and earned a well-deserved 3-nil victory in the process, their first Community Shield win since 2004. Joining us to relive another glory day at Wembley, discuss the departure of Thomas Vermaelen and the resulting depth issue in defense will be Sam Limbert from SamsMatchReports.com, along with some listener feedback on the captaincy reassignment…
