Liverpool 1 – 2 Arsenal I think it’s fair to say that in this rollercoaster of a season we have been ‘enjoying’ so far, one of the twistiest, windiest parts of the ride has come over the past few weeks. We teetered on the brink of overconfidence as we strolled out onto a potato field [...]

Well, hopefully you’ve all seen the match or heard the result by now because otherwise I’ve completely ballsed up the surprise for you haven’t I? I’m sure you’ll get over it once you realise or remember: WE WON! WE BEAT THE GROUP FAVOURITES! WE’VE QUALIFIED! WE’VE TOPPED THE GROUP! If there was a text form [...]

The season opens with a fizzle and a whimper.

It’s alright, you can come out from behind the settee now, we’re safe. No comebacks, no penalties, no Phil Thompson going looney at the set of Soccer Saturday – Newcastle away is done and dusted for the rest of the season. After such fanfare/panic/excitement/butterflies/denial floating about with regard to the beginning of the season, it [...]

Oh good, another draw. Love those, Arsenal.

They are going to have to start inventing new words for Arsenal-related disappointment. “Ugh” and “vom” and “Fggggggggnnaaaahhhhhhh” can only be used so many times before they get old. They have officially got old. You know what else is getting old? Knowing it’s going to be ‘one of those days’ again and again and again [...]

Arsenal vs Barcelona: the night before.

February 15, 2011 20 Comments by Sian

Well guys, it’s nearly upon us! *makes ooooooooh noise* Barcelona should have just about arrived in the UK as I write this, with Pep Guardiola and Andres Iniesta scheduled to do their press conference at the Emirates this evening. This is according to Arsenal communications director Mark Gonnella who can be followed from that link in a totally [...]

Will the real Arsenal please stand up? *Arsenal stand up* *Arsenal win*

December 28, 2010 27 Comments by Sian

“Arsenal weren’t that good, Chelsea were just that bad…” “They mustn’t get carried away, they have Wigan on Wednesday…” “Two of the goals came from Chelsea error rather than Arsenal brilliance…” Blah dee blah blah blah-blah blah. All the above statements might well have an element of truth to them, but I don’t care about [...]

Arsenal 1-0 West Ham: collective outtake of breath, and a rant.

November 1, 2010 17 Comments by Sian

I think Saturday’s match against West Ham might have been one of the most horrid matches I’ve seen. Not that the football was particularly bad, not that the performances were particularly bad, not that the weather was particularly cold. It was just inherently horrid. And had Alex Song-Billong not got us our one and only [...]

Sunderland 1 – 1 Arsenal. Good-ish.

September 20, 2010 9 Comments by Sian

The match Arsenal came into the match on the back of a brilliant 6-0 win at home over Braga in the Champions League. All good for Wenger’s favourite thing in the world, “team spirit,” but not so great in terms of the knackeration of the players. Interestingly, Arsenal fielded exactly the same side at Sunderland [...]

Arsenal 4 – 1 Bolton: hairtastrophes

September 13, 2010 5 Comments by Sian

Arsenal’s performance on Saturday was pretty spectacular given that, as I said in a previous blog, we usually wibble away like jelly on a plate at the sight of the word Bolton on the fixture list. The featured scoreline in the match-day programme just so happened to be 4-1, something the boys obviously knew and were [...]

Blackburn Rovers 2 – Arsenal 1… but wait! I have a plan!

May 3, 2010 16 Comments by Sian

Writing bad things about something you love with all your heart is difficult. More than difficult. It shouldn’t have to happen, shouldn’t be an activity one must partake in, ever. It’s like making a written testimony against your husband in a court of law, or having to write an article on the dangers and downsides [...]
