Classic win on a classic day.

Arsenal 1-0 Everton So, on the 125th anniversary of the beginning of the greatest thing to have ever come out of this solar system (aside from Rolos… you’ve got to love a Rolo), Arsenal finished a match by winning 1-0 at home. If only there were a song for that. Regrettably I had only an iPhone [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal 2 – 1 Huddersfield Town: what a difference a Cesc makes.

January 31, 2011 18 Comments by Sian

STILL in all four competitions! We now play Leyton Orient in the next round of the FA Cup and are one step closer to a final in Wembley in May. Positivity, people, positivity. Two bad things happened: 1.) Samir Nasri went off early on with a hamstring injury that looks likely to keep him out [...]

Arsenal vs Manchester Zzzzzzzzzz…ity.

January 6, 2011 24 Comments by Sian

Last night Arsenal were at their typical Arsenal best. We dominated posession and play and skills and crafty little one-twos, sneaky little backpasses and more than our fair share of “Ooooooh that was tasty!” moments. And of course we had next to no end product. We hit the post twice, hit the crossbar once and forced Joe [...]

Arsenal pull a Curtis Mayfield and Nasri is a God.

We arrived at the Emirates this weekend enjoying the positively balmy climate as compared with the temperatures we’d been subjected to on Wednesday evening during our 2-0 win over Wigan in the Carling Cup. Apologies to those asking where the blog for that match was by the way. I never got round to writing one thanks to a sudden [...]

Arsenal 1-0 West Ham: collective outtake of breath, and a rant.

November 1, 2010 17 Comments by Sian

I think Saturday’s match against West Ham might have been one of the most horrid matches I’ve seen. Not that the football was particularly bad, not that the performances were particularly bad, not that the weather was particularly cold. It was just inherently horrid. And had Alex Song-Billong not got us our one and only [...]

Arsenal 2 – 1 Birmingham – shoot, for God's sake.

October 18, 2010 5 Comments by Sian

So, Arsenal are back to being big bad naughty Arsenal once more, and don’t they all just love it? A controversial penalty decision involving Marouane Chamakh and Birmingham’s Scott Dann set the scene for a pretty edgy second half with plenty of whistling by both fans and referee alike at the Emirates on Saturday. In extra [...]

Arsenal 2 – 3 WBA and the case of the flattering result.

September 27, 2010 19 Comments by Sian

If you were to look objectively at this result, you’d think West Bromwich Albion had had a great game. You’d be right. Were you to look at the scoreline in terms of Arsenal you could assume we had fought to the end but had had some decisions go against us and had only missed out [...]

Arsenal 6 – 0 Arsenalistas

September 16, 2010 11 Comments by Sian

Well, I was hoping for a 7-0 so I could use ‘seventh Heaven’ somewhere in this blog but bloggers can’t be choosers now can they? Last night I don’t think anyone could argue that Arsenal showed the Arsenalistas a thing or two about Champions League football. No one, with the exception of a few missed [...]

Arsenal 4 – 1 Bolton: hairtastrophes

September 13, 2010 5 Comments by Sian

Arsenal’s performance on Saturday was pretty spectacular given that, as I said in a previous blog, we usually wibble away like jelly on a plate at the sight of the word Bolton on the fixture list. The featured scoreline in the match-day programme just so happened to be 4-1, something the boys obviously knew and were [...]
