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 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 [...]

Beaten away, Mrs Doubtfire's face and a Snowman in Yorkshire

Just as I am getting a bit fed up writing the same things about mentality and desire and blah-blah-blah, so must poor Jack Wilshere be getting sick to the back teeth of tweeting the same kind of things. It’s getting a bit tiresome now. We lost 1-0, we deserved to lose 1-0 (and no more [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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

November 1, 2010 15 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 [...]

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 [...]

Tottenham 2 – 1 Arsenal, but we're still better looking.

April 15, 2010 6 Comments by Sian

*I finished this blog at 1am last night. If the layout’s higgledy-piggledy, that’s why.* Real life will get in the way of blogging tomorrow, so I’m starting and completing this post mere hours after the final whistle. There are lots of words to sum up the events of this evening at White Hart Lane, most [...]

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 [...]
