AFC Monty signs for The Arsenal Therapy Podcast on a long term deal, making him the first and only signing for the renowned podcast group. He will join Farhan and James as they continue to add depth and quality to the starting lineup.
Despite missing out on the upper echelon of European Football, The Arsenal Therapy Podcast were determined to add an additional voice to help make sense of all the madness in the upcoming season. Thursday nights will inevitably add to the growing frustrations around the red half of North London so it will therefore be beneficial to have a third voice for the much needed therapy.
After making the eagerly awaited announcing on Twitter “The Arsenal Therapy Podcast are looking for a BRAND NEW Co-Host to join @gunnersince96 & @JamesPayneAFC on the weekly show” on Sunday 22nd May, it took the team only ten days before landing on the versatile AFC Monty.
On signing for The Arsenal Therapy Podcast, AFC Monty made the following statement “Super excited to join like minded Gooners, happy for the opportunity to speak about Arsenal. I’m a realistic but positive Gooner. Hopefully my opinions can spark a debate and my insight can answer any doubts”.
He arrives with an array of experience having followed the club for 20+ years. Whilst attending a number of high profile games at The Emirates Stadium he picked up the nickname “The Lucky Charm” as he is yet to witness the Gunners suffer a league defeat. His semi-photographic memory (can’t remember words on pages) will also prove to be a valuable asset as the team looks to strengthen in the analysis department. He also has a number of contacts in the football industry, making him a valuable asset during the transfer windows.
The Arsenal Therapy Podcast was first launched by Farhan in 2020 to help ease the growing mental strain of following Arsenal during the 2020/21 season. He was soon joined by James who brought a fresh positive perspective and helped to add a layer of comfort during a turbulent time. This soon blossomed into a harmonious partnership as they grew the brand and invited many esteemed guests like Elliot Yankee Gunner, Chris Wheatley, Simon Collings, Moh Haider, Arsenal Presser, Tom Canton, Harry Symeou and others.
Despite it being off-season, the team will continue recording weekly to give their thoughts and opinions about all the activities at London Colney. AFC Monty will make his debut in the next episode which will be available to listen to on all major podcasting platforms including Apple Podcast and Spotify via Anchor.
On behalf of all The Arsenal Therapy Podcast listeners, welcome aboard Monty!
