Arsenal 0 – 1 Manchester City Morning all, Well, that’s that then. Our relationship with the Carling Cup is a funny one. It meant not much at all to us for the duration of last season, then we got to the final, and have been carrying the scars of ten seconds of mental FROM that [...]

Right, well, let’s get all the boring bits out of the way first: 1. Congratulations to Birmingham City. Well played. 2. I love Jack Wilshere more than I love having the ability to blink. 3. It f***ing pissed it down. 4. Wembley Stadium is a hole. 5. I really do get over things surprisingly quickly. [...]

Arsenal sailed on through to the quarter finals of the Carling Cup last night with a 4-0 away win against Newcastle United at St James’s Park.

Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 4 Arsenal Let’s take a minute to appreciate my incredible headline-writing powers right here. When I was at my journalism college, I was told you’re either a great headline writer or you’re not. I was then told “Sian, you’re not”. Anyway.

"Daddy, who was Herbert Chapman?"*

June 17, 2010 11 Comments by Sian

*Title nicked from a t-shirt I saw emblazoned with “Daddy, who were The Clash?” Don’t know if it’s a brand or a really famous song/band/cult, as much music knowledge is pretty much zero. Soz.
