Swansea City 3 – 2 Arsenal Alright here’s the deal. In May 1998 I woke up one morning and watched this team called Arsenal (who?) win this trophy shaped like a head with big ears, against a team dressed as bar codes. I know that at the time I’d seen this strange team in red [...]

Many positives from a big negative.

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 [...]

And so it continues.

Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Arsenal Well, there goes that unbeaten run then. I’m not sure how to sum up the performance yesterday because it seems opinions are differing all over the place, and since the end of the match yesterday my mind’s been all over the show trying to decide exactly how well/badly we did play. [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal, money, laps of apology, Cesc and Botox.

It seems as though this season, there have been two ways in which we’ve enjoyed destroying ourselves. These have been either: – through moments of hideous crazy that have left everyone with jaws on floors (e.g. Woj/Kos awkwardness at Carling Cup final, Cesc’s assist at the Camp Nou, Abou’s sending off at St. James’s Park, [...]

Arsenal the Heartbreakers strike again.

April 24, 2011 33 Comments by Sian

Beer was thrown, curses were hurled, tears were welled and a point was lost. I say a point because we were never in a winning position in the game and didn’t look like we were likely to be putting ourselves at a winning position at any point during the game either. But whatever way you look [...]

And then there was one for the Arsenal.

Ugh. So, we’re now out of the FA Cup as well as the Carling Cup and the Champions League. It’s probably worth pointing out that this little anecdote that was trotted out over and over again throughout the match is a bit misleading. Yes we’d lost our place in two trophies in the space of [...]

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

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. [...]

Ipswich Town 1 – 0 Arsenal. Priskin ‘ell!

So, we play West Ham at Upton Park on Saturday, the Hammers just off the back of a 2-1 win over Birmingham in the Carling Cup… Oh, wait, you mean I have to talk about last night? Really? Oh. Okay then. Well, it wasn’t pretty was it? A bit Quasimodo-esque all round really. While Ipswich [...]

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 [...]
