Coshcast: EPL review with TSN’s Kristian Jack

It’s the final day of the Premier League as City reach a century, Arsene departs eventually, Liverpool secure top four as it was meant to be, who would have predicted United winning sensibly, Spurs and Leicester lose their minds defensively, and Chelsea don’t care, ostensibly.

Coshcast: Arsenal pull their Wenger out | Napoli in with a shout

Arsenal finally pull their finger out as it’s Wenger out at the Emirates – we look back at the career of the Gandalf of football – the glory and the yawns, the glamour and the false dawns, and ask who is the right man for this brave new era, from Max Allegri to Patrick Vieira.

Elsewhere there’s FA Cup action to discuss as Mourinho mourinhos his team past Spurs who spurs themselves right in the spurs, and in things you never thought would happen, Giroud goes on a mazy dribble, and Napoli beat Juventus in Turin.

Arsenal’s midfield mindf*ck

Since injury removed Santi Cazorla from the equation in mid-October, Arsenal have failed to find balance in the two positions at the base of the midfield.Without that balance, the team does not function properly. Mesut Ozil is playing the #10 role, but it is a very advanced interpretation of the position and this season he has spent a lot of time on the shoulder of the opposition’s defenders, looking to run behind them.

Pep puts his Willy ahead of his Hart

Pep is already doing his best to become a true Manchester lad, choosing his Willy over his Hart on a Saturday night out in town. Joe Hart was dropped due to the fact he is not very good at passing the ball, as opposed to not very good at keeping the ball out of the net which would have been far more obvious.

Mario Rivas hosts the Full90Gooner podcast. In this piece he tries to sum up Arsenal’s disappointing season, and asks the two big questions.’ Why?’ and ‘what next?’. Well here we are. The Premier League season is over. It feels like so long ago that August 9, 2015 came […]

Does Arsene Wenger distrust Italians?

Since taking over as Arsenal manager in 1996, Arsene Wenger has signed well over 100 players for the club from all over the world. It struck me recently though that among the absolute catalogue of nationalities represented by Wenger’s signings, Italians are few and far between. I did […]

Arsenal: Will he Vidal-ise the side?

Arsenal fans are licking their lips and rubbing their hands together at the prospect of signing Arturo Vidal from Juventus. The rumours have been doing the rounds that Vidal is available, from Juve’s point of view, and that Arsenal are interested, from Arsene Wenger’s point of view. After […]

Arsenal: Season Review

To me it was obvious that the team needed another experienced centrback to provide cover and competition. I also wondered why he didn’t get a proper defensive midfielder, seeing that the injury-prone Arteta’s performances had declined in the latter part of the previous season, and the fact that Flamini just isn’t a very good footballer.

Manchester United – Season Review

Louis van Gaal’s first season at Manchester United has been fun to watch from a neutral point of view. Big signings failing to make an impact, players who were once thrown on the scrap-heap coming back to prove their worth, a philosophical battle between 3-5-2 and 4-3-3…we’ve seen it all. Here to give us a United perspective on the whole season, is Ken Frampton. Follow Ken on Twitter at @kframpton
