Smells like… like… could it be… team spirit?!

Arsenal 2 – 1 Newcastle United ‘Arsenal are the first team to have come from behind to go on and win the match in four matches consecutively in Premier League history’. Saaaaay whaaaaaaaat? This Arsenal? ‘Just not good enough’ Arsenal? Higgledy piggledy superglued together squad of rubbish Arsenal? The new Arsenal borne of the loins [...]

Smoking guns and battered chickens. :)

Let’s be honest, this season, does anyone know whether we’re upside down or left or right or in or out any more? There may well have been good feeling ahead of yesterday’s North London Derby (I love that about Arsenal fans… doom and gloom in the days before, but Morning Of – we feel invincible!). [...]

Snow White and the seven goals*

February 5, 2012 20 Comments by Sian

In case you’d not heard, it snowed in London this weekend. But I’m sure that unless you died in 1996, you had already heard that. Every winter we get surprised that it gets cold. The fact we have yet to recognise that cold weather occurs in winter, and to greet it with anything less than [...]

A game of two Arsenals.

January 30, 2012 11 Comments by Sian

With the exception of ‘That’s football’ and ‘Not that kind of player’, there are few footballing clichés more wall-punchingly irritating than ‘A game of two halves’. Unfortunately, it’s time to lock up your walls because yesterday… yesterday was a… oh, ahhhh… a game of t-… a game of two-… nope, nope, can’t even say it. [...]

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, [...]

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 0 – 1 Manchester City Morning all, Well, that’s that then. Our relationship with the Carling Cup is a funny one. It meant not much at all to us for the duration of last season, then we got to the final, and have been carrying the scars of ten seconds of mental FROM that [...]

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 [...]

Well, hopefully you’ve all seen the match or heard the result by now because otherwise I’ve completely ballsed up the surprise for you haven’t I? I’m sure you’ll get over it once you realise or remember: WE WON! WE BEAT THE GROUP FAVOURITES! WE’VE QUALIFIED! WE’VE TOPPED THE GROUP! If there was a text form [...]

Hangover over, three more points for the Arse.

Arsenal 3-0 West Bromwich Albion And how they prayed for a stress-free afternoon. And lo, unto them He did grant it, and there was much rejoicing. And He saw that it was good. If He’d care to grant similar afternoons in the coming weeks, we’d all be much obliged. Sorry if my Bible language is [...]
