3-0 to the Arsenal

March 7, 2012 16 Comments by Sian

Arsenal 3 – 0 AC Milan Feeling after last night’s match couldn’t have been more different to feeling after the first leg in Milan if it had tried. After the 4-0 beat down we endured back then, there was anger, sadness, disappointment, confusion and serious panic. There were no explanations as to just how horrible [...]

New year, old Arsenal. But not for long.

Fulham 2-1 Arsenal  It’s 11.03am on Tuesday 3rd January. It’s raining heavier than I can remember it having rained in a long time. Dorothy passed by my house in her flying cottage last night. And we lost yesterday. Happy bastard new year. Someone must have drained all the sunshine and light and positivity out of [...]

OK, twice in two weeks WordPress has eaten my blog. It was a good blog too. I don’t know what its problem is but I hope it ROTS IN HELL IN PIECES. Anyway, here’s a quick and shortened one. Which may or may not post. WE WON! Didn’t look like we were going to and [...]

A rubbish blog from a confused girl.

Blackburn Rovers 4-3 Arsenal How dark was yesterday? Given we’re used to absolutely car-crash-domino-effect-misthrown-knife-incident-gun-backfiring-wing-falling-off-heel-snapping catastrophes of stuff happening this season, it seemed it couldn’t get any worse than the 8-2 against Manchester United a few weeks ago. Apparently, it could. Manchester United are good, currently top of the league and as I speak, beating Chelsea [...]

The season opens with a fizzle and a whimper.

August 14, 2011 11 Comments by Sian

It’s alright, you can come out from behind the settee now, we’re safe. No comebacks, no penalties, no Phil Thompson going looney at the set of Soccer Saturday – Newcastle away is done and dusted for the rest of the season. After such fanfare/panic/excitement/butterflies/denial floating about with regard to the beginning of the season, it [...]

Arsenal: a case for the defence.

March 9, 2011 32 Comments by Sian

OK, here we go. Inhale. Let’s do this. Exhale. Right. Last night Arsenal were beaten by an excellent team. We had not a single shot on goal and were out-possessed throughout. Congratulations to Barcelona, who now progress. It was a horrible match to watch, made worse by the fact that, from our perspective, it was [...]

Arsenal 0-0 Sunderland – Argh!

March 6, 2011 17 Comments by Sian

Morning all, Well a 0-0 draw is the least welcome of all the draws. At the end of a 0-0 draw I always feel like the teams may as well have stayed in bed and agreed to call it even Stevens. The 0-0 draw can exit the planet stage right, frankly. Except at the Camp Nou [...]

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 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 [...]

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 [...]
