UCL: The OC strikes again.

September 29, 2011 16 Comments by Sian

Arsenal 2-1 Olympiacos Three games in a row= consistency. All in different competitions= diversity. Eight goals= intensity. All in an N5 postcode= in-the-city. All in all= fabulosity! A stupendous week’s work, chaps. Oh, don’t worry, I’m not that naive. Blackburn away showed us we do still very much have the proPENSITY (yesssssss!) to make a [...]

Arsenal’s season, starring Sandra Bullock

April 18, 2011 31 Comments by Sian

I hate films that aren’t realistic. You know the type, where you sit there thinking “Oh he just happened to turn around in time to miss the blade through the ribs… oh of course she’s a nuclear physicist, she’s 23 and beautiful! Yep, yep, absolutely standard for a flying cow to narrowly miss your windscreen on [...]

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 [...]

Sad day for the Arsenal… but I’m over it. And I really don’t like cats.

February 27, 2011 28 Comments by Sian

Right, well, let’s get all the boring bits out of the way first: 1. Congratulations to Birmingham City. Well played. 2. I love Jack Wilshere more than I love having the ability to blink. 3. It f***ing pissed it down. 4. Wembley Stadium is a hole. 5. I really do get over things surprisingly quickly. [...]

Arsenal 1 – 0 Stoke City… Big pile of blah. And I really love Cesc.

February 24, 2011 14 Comments by Sian

It has to be said that playing Stoke City at home a week after taking on Barcelona at home must be the footballing equivalent of arriving back in the UK via Terminal 3 at Heathrow after a beautiful holiday somewhere gorgeous. Then getting into a taxi driven by a fat man with an aversion to deodorant and whose [...]

Arsenal 2 – 1 Barcelona. Too happy to do headline puns.

February 17, 2011 33 Comments by Sian

We beat them. We bloody sodding flipping beat them. I’ve been sitting here in my pyjamas on my bed racking my brains for an opening sentence that will do tonight’s experience justice but it can’t be done. I’m completely drunk on Arsenal. My favourite poison of them all. The Emirates rocked and rolled all night long. We [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal 2 – 0 Wolves… nice.

February 13, 2011 15 Comments by Sian

So, 2-0 and a result and performance we very much needed after last weekend’s soul-drainer. RvP showed why Wenger has kept faith in him despite the chocolatiness of his wee ankles, Jack Wilshere was superb (the world is still round, the sky is still blue), and no one got injured. All in all, a perfect [...]

AND we’re in the final…

January 26, 2011 32 Comments by Sian

In a final at last. At Wembley. The place we’re obviously also going to be winning two of our other three trophies in the coming months. Right? Well, it was a nervy first half, with the knowledge that Ipswich didn’t need to score and that we really, really did. They kept having a go though, particularly with the [...]

Birmingham vs Arsenal: New Year, 'nother win.

January 2, 2011 22 Comments by Sian

*wipes egg off face* OK, so perhaps sacrificing eight players from our Chelsea win for the Wigan match might have paid off a bit. Birmingham played the same team they put out against Manchester United and it showed, while our fresh-legged lot ran rings around them. When all’s said and done, seven points out of [...]
