Arsenal 1-2 Wigan  Well last night was rubbish. Not really much more to say of it than that. Wigan wanted and needed points and played very well throughout (though both goals were STUPID) and we just looked like we were playing up against a glass wall. A glass wall that covered roughly the final third [...]

Very late post-Fulham/pre-City blog.

November 28, 2011 7 Comments by Sian

Sorry for the lateness of this blog, but if you read the very short post I put up last night, you’ll see why it is. There have been tributes aplenty since the news that Wales manager Gary Speed had passed away. I’m not sure I could do any better than the things that have already [...]

Stupid trains and fantastic Frenchmen.

The frequency of bloggage in this place has been so crap that I expect no one will be here to read it but myself. Oh, and my dad who reminded me I have a blog that needs love and attention. So anyway, been very busy of late. Internships are educational, contact-making and helpful for the future… they [...]

Arsenal, money, laps of apology, Cesc and Botox.

May 16, 2011 31 Comments by Sian

It seems as though this season, there have been two ways in which we’ve enjoyed destroying ourselves. These have been either: – through moments of hideous crazy that have left everyone with jaws on floors (e.g. Woj/Kos awkwardness at Carling Cup final, Cesc’s assist at the Camp Nou, Abou’s sending off at St. James’s Park, [...]

Rambo Returns and it’s 1-0 to the Arsenal

May 1, 2011 14 Comments by Sian

I think it’s fair to say there were two feelings among fans going into the match against Manchester United at the Emirates today. One feeling was one of blind terror at knowing that, yes, it was probably absolutely possible we would dominate posession yet somehow lose to one single goal scored by something as freakish [...]

Arsenal’s season, starring Sandra Bullock

April 18, 2011 31 Comments by Sian

I hate films that aren’t realistic. You know the type, where you sit there thinking “Oh he just happened to turn around in time to miss the blade through the ribs… oh of course she’s a nuclear physicist, she’s 23 and beautiful! Yep, yep, absolutely standard for a flying cow to narrowly miss your windscreen on [...]

Oh good, another draw. Love those, Arsenal.

April 3, 2011 24 Comments by Sian

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: a case for the defence.

March 9, 2011 32 Comments by Sian

OK, here we go. Inhale. Let’s do this. Exhale. Right. Last night Arsenal were beaten by an excellent team. We had not a single shot on goal and were out-possessed throughout. Congratulations to Barcelona, who now progress. It was a horrible match to watch, made worse by the fact that, from our perspective, it was [...]

Arsenal 1 – 0 Stoke City… Big pile of blah. And I really love Cesc.

February 24, 2011 14 Comments by Sian

It has to be said that playing Stoke City at home a week after taking on Barcelona at home must be the footballing equivalent of arriving back in the UK via Terminal 3 at Heathrow after a beautiful holiday somewhere gorgeous. Then getting into a taxi driven by a fat man with an aversion to deodorant and whose [...]

Arsenal 2 – 1 Everton: Big result. Big. Huge.

February 2, 2011 14 Comments by Sian

That was one of my favourite matches of the year so far at the Emirates. I realise it’s February 2nd. The atmosphere was great (if accidental), the result was greater and the fact we made a comeback instead of letting our heads drop as usual, was greatest. In spite of a poor start for the [...]
