On this week's show I'm joined by Jim Campbell of the Football Ramble to shoot the Arsenal breeze. We talk about the positive moment we find ourselves in ahead of a trip to face Liverpool, wonder how Mikel Arteta might approach the game, and how the team might react to adversity if that's what we face after this one. We also chat about the new faces, which ones have impressed us most, and the growing influence of Emile Smith Rowe.Then for some opposition perspective, it's John Gibbons from The Anfield Wrap. On the agenda, some defensive shakiness, midfield instability (including the Ox), attacking potency and his thoughts on this Arsenal side as we could potentially go above them in the table this weekend.Follow Jim @JimCampbellTFR : Follow John @johngibbonsblogGet tickets to see Jim's comedy show here - https://thetopsecretcomedyclub.co.uk/events-listings/jim-campbell-the-state-of-it-work-in-progress-1-hour/Visit Arsebiz to support fellow Arsenal fans with your Christmas shopping - https://arsebiz.arseblog.com/If you want to become an Arseblog Member on Patreon, you can sign up at patreon.com/arseblog for just €5 per month.

On this week's episode of Greatest Games, Colin Udoh has chosen to discuss Nigeria's 1996 Olympic Games semi-final win over Brazil with Jonathan Wilson and Marcus Speller.   For Brazil, Olympic gold continued to elude them, hence the strength of the squad they boasted for this tournament – Dida, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo and Juninho all started this match, Rivaldo would come off the bench. It wouldn't be until they hosted the Olympics in 2016 when they finally won their first Men's final.    Meanwhile, many of Nigeria's Dream Team were already established names after their enthralling appearance at the USA '94 World Cup, having been knocked out by two extremely late goals from Italy's Roberto Baggio. However, no one would have anticipated what they'd achieve at the 1996 Olympics, especially with the calibre of opposition – and the players chosen for those sides – in front of them.   About the panel: Jonathan Wilson founded The Blizzard in 2011 and is editor of the magazine. He's contributed to numerous publications including the Guardian and Sports Illustrated as well as having authored Behind the Curtain, Inverting the Pyramid, The Outsider, Angels with Dirty Faces and most recently The Names Heard Long Ago, among others.   Marcus Speller is a host of the Football Ramble podcast as well as Answerable Questions with Questionable Answers.
