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 [...]

After about three months of willing the season to end as Arsenal Arsenalled their way into their usual end-of-season position, I don’t think anyone could have anticipated quite how long the summer would feel.

*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 [...]

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 0 – 0 Manchester City. Goalless, but funny.

April 26, 2010 20 Comments by Sian

Uninspiring match= struggling to find the inspiration to write about it. Funny really, as there were certainly plenty of talking points. I listed these talking points when I originally tried to attempt writing this blog post yesterday afternoon. This was my unedited summarisation of 98 minutes in the sun on Saturday afternoon: 1.) Vieira/Toure return [...]
