Just AFC.

July 14, 2011 28 Comments by Sian

The end of last season was quite painful. For all involved. From all points of view. On and off the pitch. Never before have I so longed for the summer break as I did this season just gone. Not only did the team seem to keep whoopsy-daisying their way to disappointing result after disappointing result, [...]

Arsenal supporters unite. Or something.

March 21, 2011 62 Comments by Sian

Hello, Arsenal fans. Posting a blog 48 hours after the fact seems a little pointless doesn’t it? Oh well, let’s proceed anyway. Like a post-mortem. You have to wait for the body to cool. For all the goo to settle. Or so Doc Robbins tells me on CSI Tuesdays.  Anyway, we came away from the Hawthorns [...]

This is the last in the very short series, but by no means least! Thanks to everyone who contributed: may your year be full of great hair days, finding money down the back of the sofa and finding two yolks in your morning fried eggs! ~ ~ ~ “I was born in Archway to a [...]

Arsenal Fan Blog Part 1 of 2- Girls like football too

June 21, 2010 8 Comments by Sian

Last week I picked up a popular British women’s magazine hoping to find inside lots of articles about the modern woman and just how multi-faceted she is. The year is 2010, we have the vote, we have any job we like (or we will have, one day) and we can drive just as fast as [...]

As we progress through life, there will be many transitions we will go through and many big mistakes we will make. Friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, houses, cars, jobs and shoes will change and we will no doubt on more than one occasion regret making a really silly mistake. One area of life that most certainly does [...]

This current starting paragraph has been started and deleted five times now. There have been three long minutes between finishing the previous sentence and starting this one. Since typing the full stop to the left of the capital S in ‘Since’, I’ve spent some valuable time pulling faces at myself in the mirror and also [...]

Blackburn Rovers 2 – Arsenal 1… but wait! I have a plan!

May 3, 2010 16 Comments by Sian

Writing bad things about something you love with all your heart is difficult. More than difficult. It shouldn’t have to happen, shouldn’t be an activity one must partake in, ever. It’s like making a written testimony against your husband in a court of law, or having to write an article on the dangers and downsides [...]

Messi 4 – 1 Arsenal

April 8, 2010 8 Comments by Sian

Not a particularly inspired title to a post given I’d imagine most newspapers yesterday went with this theme, but a pretty fair enough one. What can be said that hasn’t been said before? Barcelona have on their team plenty of excellent players but they also have a small Argentinean one whose level of excellence is [...]

Arsenal 2-2 Barcelona. Classfest.

April 1, 2010 8 Comments by Sian

The night before the match yesterday, I dreamt that Lionel Messi hit me with his car and drove off. After about 30 minutes of play yesterday, I reckon Arsenal must have felt like Barcelona had hit them with their team bus and driven off. Well, we wanted to see classy football and we got classy [...]
