21:10 Thats a wrap

Join us again on Wednesday for more from Dykes. He really is a pleasure to listen to and whats better is that he wants to hear from you so get in touch with your opinions and questions and you could well feature on the show. Until next time, good bye.

21:05 Dykes’ Team Of The Week is pure class

He has tipped David De Gea to potentially lead United to their first Premier League trophy since the departure of Fergie. Bold.

21:00 But things are not looking too rosy for the Eagles

New manager. New game-plan. No idea.

20:55 Staying in London… Dykes believes Chelsea are doing just fine

And that they will challenge for honours again this season if they can bring in a bit more quality.

20:50 ‘A complete lack of surprise thats killing us at the moment’

Andrew Whitelaw cannot understand how his team keep failing in the same way but that no action is taken. He also sees NO short-term solutions given that the season has already started.

20:45 Scathing from Matt Scott and others

Dykes points to Scott’s Twitter account to illustrate Arsenal fans’ frustration at the current situation. There was plenty of anger elsewhere too.

20:40 A losing culture

Dykes believes that the Gunners have become a club okay with losing big games because it happens so often now. Harsh but fair?

20:35 We are underway

Were you surprised by the Arsenal result on the weekend? Dykes certainly was NOT. Same old Arsenal he says.

20:20 Will the #Wembleycurse come up again?

Spurs conceded a late goal against Burnley as they remain without a win at their temporary home for another week. Will Dykes address this issue again?

20:05 All opinions are welcome


We can’t wait for Dykes, one of the leading analysts of the Premier League worldwide, to unpack Arsenal’s problems and discuss the weekend that was. But your input is also welcomed and valued. Feel free to get involved in all the debates on Social Media.

19:50 A variety of responses on Twitter

There have been some great explanations as to Arsenal’s problems on Twitter. Some believe that the players must take responsibility.

Some believe that the manager is to blame.

A few believe that the fans’ loyalty has contributed to Arsenal’s slump in form.

And there were of course some Liverpool fans who felt The Reds were simply too good on the day.

19:30 Whose to blame for Arsenal’s Anfield atrocity


It was a brilliant weekend of Premier League football. The biggest talking point was Arsenal’s 4-0 demolition at the hands of Liverpool. Dykes will discuss who is fault and what will happen next in the North of London.
