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 [...]

Another away win: Dinna dinna dinna dinna dinna dinna dinna dinna BACMAN!

November 15, 2010 16 Comments by Sian

It seems that this year, ‘The Arsenal Way’ is the only way. There we are 2-0 up with about 90 seconds of normal time to go and what do we do? Only go and flipping concede, don’t we? Cue five minutes of nail-biting, teeth-grinding and stress-related hair loss before finally, finally, Howard Webb blew the whistle to [...]

Wolves 0 – 2 Arsenal: bookended by a Moroccan.

November 11, 2010 8 Comments by Sian

Well with regards to the end of Monday’s post, play like pillocks we did not! It wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t quite what you’d call comprehensive but given what could have happened it was a great, and very important, win. The trouble with Arsenal in recent times has been that you can rarely look ahead to [...]

Man City 0 – 3 Arsenal: three points at last

October 25, 2010 26 Comments by Sian

It’s been a while since I’ve woken up the morning after an Arsenal match thinking anything other than “Urgh, gotta avoid the papers today.” Either it’s been because we lost or underperformed or had a player sent off or got a controversial penalty, but there is usually a reason. Today I doubt many of us [...]

Arsenal 2 – 1 Birmingham – shoot, for God's sake.

October 18, 2010 5 Comments by Sian

So, Arsenal are back to being big bad naughty Arsenal once more, and don’t they all just love it? A controversial penalty decision involving Marouane Chamakh and Birmingham’s Scott Dann set the scene for a pretty edgy second half with plenty of whistling by both fans and referee alike at the Emirates on Saturday. In extra [...]

Chelsea 2 – 0 Arsenal: they took, we didn't.

October 4, 2010 11 Comments by Sian

Cast your minds back to 29th November 2009, say around 6pm-ish. If you’re reading this blog as an Arsenal fan there’s a very high probability you were suicidal/homicidal/drunk at this time. We had just lost 3-0 at home to Chelsea in a match that did nothing but highlight the tundra-like divide between our strongest team and [...]

Partizan Belgrade 1 – 3 Arsenal… top of the group.

September 29, 2010 6 Comments by Sian

In the beginning, the Arsenal arrived in the stadium in Belgrade. And the stadium was without light and brightness; and darkness was upon the face of the players. And the Spirit of Arsenal moved upon the face of the fans. And Wenger said, let there be light: and there was light.  And the ref saw the light, that it was [...]

Jack Attacks Spurs as King Henri and Super Sam Reign Supreme!

Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 4 Arsenal Let’s take a minute to appreciate my incredible headline-writing powers right here. When I was at my journalism college, I was told you’re either a great headline writer or you’re not. I was then told “Sian, you’re not”. Anyway. Basically, the only thing missing from last night’s win at White [...]

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 [...]
