This post has issues.

December 6, 2011 11 Comments by Sian

There are a few different issues to be discussed in today’s blog post. They are as follows: 1. Last weekend’s match away to Wigan 2. Tonight’s match away to Olympiacos 3. The coming weekend’s match at home to Everton 4. Tomorrow night’s book launch away to the Tollington 5. Just HOW we’re going to get together the money [...]

Bite, Borussia Dortmund, and a Burning Face.

Borussia Dortmund 1-1 Arsenal (London) A Girl Who Loves The Gunners is about as rubbish at posting promptly after matches as Arsenal are at defending a lead! Wait, no, in this instance this example is unfair. We will get into the reasons as to why, now. Firstly, if matches are going to be as tense [...]

Good luck boys.

Right, my lovely little petals, are you sitting comfortably? I shall begin… Once upon a time there was a little team that lived in a little city of seven million little people. It was a nice city, a bit polluted but I mean in this day and age what else is new? The little team [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal 2 – 0 Wolves… nice.

February 13, 2011 15 Comments by Sian

So, 2-0 and a result and performance we very much needed after last weekend’s soul-drainer. RvP showed why Wenger has kept faith in him despite the chocolatiness of his wee ankles, Jack Wilshere was superb (the world is still round, the sky is still blue), and no one got injured. All in all, a perfect [...]

Barcelona. Again. Yay. Also, the NOPAs.

We’ve been here before. This time though, it’s personal. Had a really strong feeling we were going to draw Real Madrid and am a bit gutted we didn’t but never mind, we can just get them when we beat Barca and they overcome Lyon can’t we! OK I’ll stop with the confidence. Clearly our tie [...]

Champions League football means you might have to play champions. Duh.

December 10, 2010 5 Comments by Sian

So, we qualified for the next round of the Champions League on Wednesday… as if there was ever any doubt. The performance was well below par and Partizan equalising was not at all a part of the plan given that we needed to win our match to be sure of anything. 3-1 was the eventual result, [...]

Arsenalistas get the better of Arsenal.

November 24, 2010 10 Comments by Sian

We needed a massive performance against Braga last night in order to see ourselves back on track before this weekend’s clash with Aston Villa. The performance we eventually delivered was diminutive in size and got us about as back on track as a derailed train that’s been taken even further away from the track for [...]

Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1 Arsenal: And that's the Arsenal Way.

November 4, 2010 6 Comments by Sian

Oh, bollocks. Well that was today’s blog, more next time! In all seriousness though, we deserved what we got: a 2-1 defeat. The side Arsenal put out, lacking Cesc, Song, Diaby, Denilson and Arshavin were never going to look as good as a side that… well, had Cesc, Song, Diaby, Denilson and Arshavin. Apparently Arsenal [...]
