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 1 – 0 Stoke City… Big pile of blah. And I really love Cesc.

February 24, 2011 14 Comments by Sian

It has to be said that playing Stoke City at home a week after taking on Barcelona at home must be the footballing equivalent of arriving back in the UK via Terminal 3 at Heathrow after a beautiful holiday somewhere gorgeous. Then getting into a taxi driven by a fat man with an aversion to deodorant and whose [...]

Leyton Orient 1 – 1 Arsenal: Alright, no one died!

February 20, 2011 16 Comments by Sian

I must say, while I had an excellent feeling we’d beat Barcelona on Wednesday, I also had this niggling feeling we’d make a right old pig’s ear of this afternoon’s match against Leyton Orient. What can I say? I know the Arsenal way. So we drew 1-1. I’d say that’s fairly standard procedure for us [...]

Arsenal 2 – 1 Huddersfield Town: what a difference a Cesc makes.

January 31, 2011 18 Comments by Sian

STILL in all four competitions! We now play Leyton Orient in the next round of the FA Cup and are one step closer to a final in Wembley in May. Positivity, people, positivity. Two bad things happened: 1.) Samir Nasri went off early on with a hamstring injury that looks likely to keep him out [...]

AND we’re in the final…

January 26, 2011 32 Comments by Sian

In a final at last. At Wembley. The place we’re obviously also going to be winning two of our other three trophies in the coming months. Right? Well, it was a nervy first half, with the knowledge that Ipswich didn’t need to score and that we really, really did. They kept having a go though, particularly with the [...]

Return of the Bac as Arsenal beat Leeds United

January 20, 2011 16 Comments by Sian

I admit, I was a bit nervy about yesterday’s match. Even though the team was back to its best at the weekend and a bit of confidence had been restored after last week’s misery of a display against Ipswich, well, we all know what they can be like. So THANKFULLY the Arsenal we all know [...]

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 [...]

Champions League football means you might have to play champions. Duh.

December 10, 2010 5 Comments by Sian

So, we qualified for the next round of the Champions League on Wednesday… as if there was ever any doubt. The performance was well below par and Partizan equalising was not at all a part of the plan given that we needed to win our match to be sure of anything. 3-1 was the eventual result, [...]

Arsenalistas get the better of Arsenal.

November 24, 2010 10 Comments by Sian

We needed a massive performance against Braga last night in order to see ourselves back on track before this weekend’s clash with Aston Villa. The performance we eventually delivered was diminutive in size and got us about as back on track as a derailed train that’s been taken even further away from the track for [...]

Newcastle United 0 – 4 Arsenal: against 11 men and everything!

October 28, 2010 9 Comments by Sian

Arsenal sailed on through to the quarter finals of the Carling Cup last night with a 4-0 away win against Newcastle United at St James’s Park. Two beautiful goals, one really really cack goal and one with a little bit of controversy made for an interesting evening to say the least. In spite of being [...]
