Nicked by a one man team called Wojbin van Songna.

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 [...]

Post-Sunderland, pre-Milan, forever Thierry Henry.

February 12, 2012 20 Comments by Sian

There is a painting of Thierry Henry on the outside of the Emirates Stadium. It appeared a couple of summers ago as part of the ‘Arsenalisation’ of our new home. It was the one we were concerned we’d have to form a human chain around when Ireland played there shortly after the handball incident that [...]

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 [...]

Fulham 2-1 Arsenal  It’s 11.03am on Tuesday 3rd January. It’s raining heavier than I can remember it having rained in a long time. Dorothy passed by my house in her flying cottage last night. And we lost yesterday. Happy bastard new year. Someone must have drained all the sunshine and light and positivity out of [...]

Merry Christmas Eve Eve Eve everybody! We’ve began (begun? began? I never know) our busy festive period of eating and drinking and watching football, and it’s started rather well on the one hand. On the other, transporty hand, it’s not going quite so swimmingly, waking up as we have this morning to the news that [...]

Keep on Walcin’!

Dearest club football, Does it not feel like an age since we last did meet? How have you been? How are the children? Almost fully grown since West Brom, I would imagine. Let us not leave it so long again, hmm? I missed you. And I know that you missed me. Let’s just not do [...]

Chelsea 3-5 Arsenal I normally sit here staring at a blank computer screen not knowing how to begin when we’ve done an Arsenal and imploded in spectacular fashion. It’s been a long time since I’ve sat here not really knowing what to say thanks to the brilliance of the previous day’s events. Happily though, this [...]

OK, twice in two weeks WordPress has eaten my blog. It was a good blog too. I don’t know what its problem is but I hope it ROTS IN HELL IN PIECES. Anyway, here’s a quick and shortened one. Which may or may not post. WE WON! Didn’t look like we were going to and [...]

Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Arsenal Well, there goes that unbeaten run then. I’m not sure how to sum up the performance yesterday because it seems opinions are differing all over the place, and since the end of the match yesterday my mind’s been all over the show trying to decide exactly how well/badly we did play. [...]

Blackburn Rovers 4-3 Arsenal How dark was yesterday? Given we’re used to absolutely car-crash-domino-effect-misthrown-knife-incident-gun-backfiring-wing-falling-off-heel-snapping catastrophes of stuff happening this season, it seemed it couldn’t get any worse than the 8-2 against Manchester United a few weeks ago. Apparently, it could. Manchester United are good, currently top of the league and as I speak, beating Chelsea [...]
