On this week's show the mood of optimism and hope brought about by a video for a football shirt evaporated when we got a look at Arsenal's financial performance. Failure to qualify for the Champions League again is going to make life difficult, so we chat about the money, the on pitch performance, Ivan Gazidis presiding over such dismal business, and ultimately Stan Kroenke who allows it all to happen. Then we chat about the no transfers and wonder whether lots of transfers are coming or not. Are they like buses? You wait ages and then three arrive at once. Then we have listener questions about the kit, potential loan signings, midfield recruitment and lots more – before the important stuff, Magpie Facts! Behold his mighty beak and his heavy metal guitar. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
