Episode 434 - Barcelona and then Arsenal
This podcast was recorded yesterday evening, as news of the horrible attack in Barcelona came through, and given my connection with the place it was very much on my mind, so the first 10 minutes of this show are a bit introspective. If you don't want to hear that this morning, and I can understand why many wouldn't, just skip forward to 9'55 where the rest of the show features a long chat with Philippe Auclair. We chat about Olivier Giroud and his decision to stay, as well as new boy Alexandre Lacazette. We ask if the back three is actually making us defensively more secure, before moving onto the situations of Alexis, Ozil and Oxlade-Chamberlain, before discussing the transfer market, our need for a certain player and to move some others on.

The Premier League is back and we relive that extraordinary opening game on Friday night when we beat Leicester 4-3. We chat about the performance, the system, defensive mistakes, our serious firepower and supersub Olivier Giroud's incredible impact once again. We also discuss the first weekend in general, relive Jamie Carragher's funny moment, and then answer lots of questions including the future of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, our transfer business, the need to manage the squad better, free transfers and lots more besides.
Episode 433 - Friday Night Lights
The new season kicks off tonight, rather unusually, and Arsenal face Leicester City in the first game of the new campaign. To preview Premier League, I'm joined by Ken Early of Second Captains and Dion Fanning, sports writer with Joe. We chat about the transfer market, the world record sale of Neymar, the consequences of that for the market overall, and the activity of English clubs so far. We look at all the title challengers, the top 6 clubs, their hopes, the lads pick their favourites to win the league, and of course we chat about Arsenal too.

On this week's show we look back at yesterday's Community Shield victory over Chelsea, the impact of new boy Sead Kolasinac, the performance of fellow new signing Alexandre Lacazette, and why there are a lot of positives to take from another Wembley win. We then answer listener's questions about the Bosnian's somewhat confusing goal celebration, Danny Welbeck being linked with Everton, Hector Bellerin's tackle, what's acceptable in Fantasy Football and we finish the show by reading some of the best comments James's viral sensation 'Got enough?' video generated.
