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 [...]

Arsenal vs Leeds, match 1 of 2.

January 10, 2011 8 Comments by Sian

Arsenal had been knocked out of the FA Cup by March last year, which is when I started blogging, so this is my first FA Cup post ever! Applause, confetti, party hats, streamers, etc! Pity it was a draw then. Boo, hiss, veils, organ music, etc! Wenger said that of all the outcomes we could have [...]

Three points for Arsenal and Le Return of le Barnét de le Bob.

(** I don’t speak a word of French. I’m sure the title is totally wrong, but it sounds good. So shush.**) If Arsenal was a schoolkid it’d be the clever one who can really excel in school when he tries. The one who could rock up to any exam it wanted and pass it easily enough. [...]

Arsenal's home record continues to suck.

I never was able to write an essay plan. I’d always go walk into exams at school going full steam ahead with no clue as to what I was going to say. With these blogs, on the other hand, there’s usually some kind of mental mind map going on before I start. But you know what, I got [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal 6 – 0 Arsenalistas

September 16, 2010 6 Comments by Sian

Well, I was hoping for a 7-0 so I could use ‘seventh Heaven’ somewhere in this blog but bloggers can’t be choosers now can they? Last night I don’t think anyone could argue that Arsenal showed the Arsenalistas a thing or two about Champions League football. No one, with the exception of a few missed [...]
