Good afternoon, Montpellier later, but first a few words from another girl what loves them Gunners. You’ll probably know her from Twitter or from the Emirates or from the Tollington – Zana! She’s my favourite and funniest of all the Tweeters (and full-sized humans) and she loves Mikel Arteta. Here’s why. ~ ~ ~ “The [...]

Snow White and the seven goals*

February 5, 2012 20 Comments by Sian

In case you’d not heard, it snowed in London this weekend. But I’m sure that unless you died in 1996, you had already heard that. Every winter we get surprised that it gets cold. The fact we have yet to recognise that cold weather occurs in winter, and to greet it with anything less than [...]

Massive trees, massive saves and massively bad days.

Arsenal 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers Merry After-Christmas from me and my newly-formed double chin. A calorific time of the season indeed but hey, it’s winter and the nights are getting colder. If one does not gain the weight with which one can utilize to keep oneself warm for the duration of climate hell that is January, [...]

Arsenal 3-0 West Bromwich Albion And how they prayed for a stress-free afternoon. And lo, unto them He did grant it, and there was much rejoicing. And He saw that it was good. If He’d care to grant similar afternoons in the coming weeks, we’d all be much obliged. Sorry if my Bible language is [...]

RvP, his invisible team-mates, a mad match and a wonderful win.

Chelsea 3-5 Arsenal I normally sit here staring at a blank computer screen not knowing how to begin when we’ve done an Arsenal and imploded in spectacular fashion. It’s been a long time since I’ve sat here not really knowing what to say thanks to the brilliance of the previous day’s events. Happily though, this [...]

UCL: The OC strikes again.

September 29, 2011 16 Comments by Sian

Arsenal 2-1 Olympiacos Three games in a row= consistency. All in different competitions= diversity. Eight goals= intensity. All in an N5 postcode= in-the-city. All in all= fabulosity! A stupendous week’s work, chaps. Oh, don’t worry, I’m not that naive. Blackburn away showed us we do still very much have the proPENSITY (yesssssss!) to make a [...]

Bite, Borussia Dortmund, and a Burning Face.

Borussia Dortmund 1-1 Arsenal (London) A Girl Who Loves The Gunners is about as rubbish at posting promptly after matches as Arsenal are at defending a lead! Wait, no, in this instance this example is unfair. We will get into the reasons as to why, now. Firstly, if matches are going to be as tense [...]

Search called off, as three points are found alive and well!

September 11, 2011 12 Comments by Sian

Hello Gooners, Me again, how have you all been? Better, now that we actually have three points, a win and a clean sheet? Did it feel like it would never happen again? It did, didn’t it. We still have the most appalling goal difference chart in the Premiership (according to the Mirror’s table today anyway), [...]

Retail therapy for the Arsenal.

Scoring averages for the team this season have been rubbish, and so have my blogging averages. I apologise. In my Mertesacker-enforced defence, I’ve had a busy summer and I am also a one-woman band. Lots of other blogs have guest bloggers, but I’m just me. Maybe I should HAVE guest bloggers? Not to be sexist, [...]
