Massive trees, massive saves and massively bad days.

Arsenal 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers Merry After-Christmas from me and my newly-formed double chin. A calorific time of the season indeed but hey, it’s winter and the nights are getting colder. If one does not gain the weight with which one can utilize to keep oneself warm for the duration of climate hell that is January, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

The season opens with a fizzle and a whimper.

It’s alright, you can come out from behind the settee now, we’re safe. No comebacks, no penalties, no Phil Thompson going looney at the set of Soccer Saturday – Newcastle away is done and dusted for the rest of the season. After such fanfare/panic/excitement/butterflies/denial floating about with regard to the beginning of the season, it [...]

Goaly North London derby ends in a draw. Shock.

April 21, 2011 10 Comments by Sian

*stares at screen* *rubs forehead* *whistles* Hm. Where shall we begin? Matches between Arsenal and Tottenham are often high-scoring and there was no doubting how up for it both teams were last night. Both of us had a lot to play for and, in the end, both of us came away disappointed. Might as well [...]

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 0-0 Sunderland – Argh!

March 6, 2011 17 Comments by Sian

Morning all, Well a 0-0 draw is the least welcome of all the draws. At the end of a 0-0 draw I always feel like the teams may as well have stayed in bed and agreed to call it even Stevens. The 0-0 draw can exit the planet stage right, frankly. Except at the Camp Nou [...]

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 [...]

Newcastle Utd 4 – 4 Arsenal: how the who the what the?!

February 6, 2011 29 Comments by Sian

Alright so it’s been more than 24 hours since the mentalness that was Saturday afternoon’s match at St James’s Park. Footballing cliches can go die in hell usually, but ‘a game of two halves’ was definitely a phrase dreamt up by a couple of old gits donkeys’ years ago, who knew they’d one day witness a match like [...]

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 [...]
