This post has issues.

December 6, 2011 11 Comments by Sian

There are a few different issues to be discussed in today’s blog post. They are as follows: 1. Last weekend’s match away to Wigan 2. Tonight’s match away to Olympiacos 3. The coming weekend’s match at home to Everton 4. Tomorrow night’s book launch away to the Tollington 5. Just HOW we’re going to get together the money [...]

GUEST BLOG: Wins, Wounds, & NorWich.

November 18, 2011 7 Comments by Sian

Sorry the blog has been so quiet over the past couple of weeks but thankfully the snooziest of intersnoozes is now over and we should be back to normal service soon. For now, here’s the wonderful Gabi Boyd‘s second contribution to FAGWLTG! I promise it’s not a requirement that all writers on this blog must sing Tommy V’s [...]

Rambo Returns and it’s 1-0 to the Arsenal

May 1, 2011 14 Comments by Sian

I think it’s fair to say there were two feelings among fans going into the match against Manchester United at the Emirates today. One feeling was one of blind terror at knowing that, yes, it was probably absolutely possible we would dominate posession yet somehow lose to one single goal scored by something as freakish [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

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

November 29, 2010 10 Comments by Sian

(** 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.

November 21, 2010 29 Comments by Sian

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 [...]

Arsenal 1-0 West Ham: collective outtake of breath, and a rant.

November 1, 2010 17 Comments by Sian

I think Saturday’s match against West Ham might have been one of the most horrid matches I’ve seen. Not that the football was particularly bad, not that the performances were particularly bad, not that the weather was particularly cold. It was just inherently horrid. And had Alex Song-Billong not got us our one and only [...]

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 [...]

More Arsenal Positivity. Sorry.

September 1, 2010 12 Comments by Sian

In May of this year it was utterly inconceivable that Arsenal wouldn’t sign a new goalkeeper. The chances of us coming back into the new term with MA/LF between the sticks seemed about as likely as Nicklas Bendtner ever choosing a sensible haircut. Or putting his Aston up for sale, announcing “What do I need this [...]
