Arsenal’s six year drought without silverware persists while a 48-year dry spell ends for Birmingham City on what announcers called the biggest day in the club’s history. On Sunday, Brum got an 89th minute goal from Obafemi Martins en route to a 2-1 win over the Gunners and the Carling Cup. Arsenal, on the other hand, saw their defending fail them at a crucial time, something that is sure to give new life to the criticisms heard countless times by this squad.
On this edition of the EPL Talk Podcast, myself and co-hosts Kartik Krishnaiyer and Laurence McKenna pay tribute to the Blues’ achievement while asking where the loss leaves Arsenal. We also talk about a weekend’s worth of action that saw strong results for who relegation battlers while Manchester United restored their four point lead.
Then, we look forward to Tuesday, when Chelsea and United will meet for the first time this season. Along the way, we get to your feedback on this, the weekend review show.
