Reactions, Ramsey, relationships and rotten days.

Swansea City 3 – 2 Arsenal Alright here’s the deal. In May 1998 I woke up one morning and watched this team called Arsenal (who?) win this trophy shaped like a head with big ears, against a team dressed as bar codes. I know that at the time I’d seen this strange team in red [...]

Search called off, as three points are found alive and well!

September 11, 2011 12 Comments by Sian

Hello Gooners, Me again, how have you all been? Better, now that we actually have three points, a win and a clean sheet? Did it feel like it would never happen again? It did, didn’t it. We still have the most appalling goal difference chart in the Premiership (according to the Mirror’s table today anyway), [...]

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 supporters unite. Or something.

Hello, Arsenal fans. Posting a blog 48 hours after the fact seems a little pointless doesn’t it? Oh well, let’s proceed anyway. Like a post-mortem. You have to wait for the body to cool. For all the goo to settle. Or so Doc Robbins tells me on CSI Tuesdays.  Anyway, we came away from the Hawthorns [...]

Leyton Orient 1 – 1 Arsenal: Alright, no one died!

February 20, 2011 16 Comments by Sian

I must say, while I had an excellent feeling we’d beat Barcelona on Wednesday, I also had this niggling feeling we’d make a right old pig’s ear of this afternoon’s match against Leyton Orient. What can I say? I know the Arsenal way. So we drew 1-1. I’d say that’s fairly standard procedure for us [...]

Arsenal 2 – 1 Barcelona. Too happy to do headline puns.

We beat them. We bloody sodding flipping beat them. I’ve been sitting here in my pyjamas on my bed racking my brains for an opening sentence that will do tonight’s experience justice but it can’t be done. I’m completely drunk on Arsenal. My favourite poison of them all. The Emirates rocked and rolled all night long. We [...]

AND we’re in the final…

January 26, 2011 32 Comments by Sian

In a final at last. At Wembley. The place we’re obviously also going to be winning two of our other three trophies in the coming months. Right? Well, it was a nervy first half, with the knowledge that Ipswich didn’t need to score and that we really, really did. They kept having a go though, particularly with the [...]

Return of the Bac as Arsenal beat Leeds United

January 20, 2011 16 Comments by Sian

I admit, I was a bit nervy about yesterday’s match. Even though the team was back to its best at the weekend and a bit of confidence had been restored after last week’s misery of a display against Ipswich, well, we all know what they can be like. So THANKFULLY the Arsenal we all know [...]

Arsenal vs Leeds, match 1 of 2.

January 10, 2011 8 Comments by Sian

Arsenal had been knocked out of the FA Cup by March last year, which is when I started blogging, so this is my first FA Cup post ever! Applause, confetti, party hats, streamers, etc! Pity it was a draw then. Boo, hiss, veils, organ music, etc! Wenger said that of all the outcomes we could have [...]

Beaten away, Mrs Doubtfire's face and a Snowman in Yorkshire

December 14, 2010 19 Comments by Sian

Just as I am getting a bit fed up writing the same things about mentality and desire and blah-blah-blah, so must poor Jack Wilshere be getting sick to the back teeth of tweeting the same kind of things. It’s getting a bit tiresome now. We lost 1-0, we deserved to lose 1-0 (and no more [...]
