Smells like… like… could it be… team spirit?!

Arsenal 2 – 1 Newcastle United ‘Arsenal are the first team to have come from behind to go on and win the match in four matches consecutively in Premier League history’. Saaaaay whaaaaaaaat? This Arsenal? ‘Just not good enough’ Arsenal? Higgledy piggledy superglued together squad of rubbish Arsenal? The new Arsenal borne of the loins [...]

3-0 to the Arsenal

March 7, 2012 16 Comments by Sian

Arsenal 3 – 0 AC Milan Feeling after last night’s match couldn’t have been more different to feeling after the first leg in Milan if it had tried. After the 4-0 beat down we endured back then, there was anger, sadness, disappointment, confusion and serious panic. There were no explanations as to just how horrible [...]

Liverpool 1 – 2 Arsenal I think it’s fair to say that in this rollercoaster of a season we have been ‘enjoying’ so far, one of the twistiest, windiest parts of the ride has come over the past few weeks. We teetered on the brink of overconfidence as we strolled out onto a potato field [...]

Let’s be honest, this season, does anyone know whether we’re upside down or left or right or in or out any more? There may well have been good feeling ahead of yesterday’s North London Derby (I love that about Arsenal fans… doom and gloom in the days before, but Morning Of – we feel invincible!). [...]

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 [...]

A game of two Arsenals.

January 30, 2012 11 Comments by Sian

With the exception of ‘That’s football’ and ‘Not that kind of player’, there are few footballing clichés more wall-punchingly irritating than ‘A game of two halves’. Unfortunately, it’s time to lock up your walls because yesterday… yesterday was a… oh, ahhhh… a game of t-… a game of two-… nope, nope, can’t even say it. [...]

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, [...]

Classic win on a classic day.

Arsenal 1-0 Everton So, on the 125th anniversary of the beginning of the greatest thing to have ever come out of this solar system (aside from Rolos… you’ve got to love a Rolo), Arsenal finished a match by winning 1-0 at home. If only there were a song for that. Regrettably I had only an iPhone [...]

Well, hopefully you’ve all seen the match or heard the result by now because otherwise I’ve completely ballsed up the surprise for you haven’t I? I’m sure you’ll get over it once you realise or remember: WE WON! WE BEAT THE GROUP FAVOURITES! WE’VE QUALIFIED! WE’VE TOPPED THE GROUP! If there was a text form [...]

Keep on Walcin’!

Dearest club football, Does it not feel like an age since we last did meet? How have you been? How are the children? Almost fully grown since West Brom, I would imagine. Let us not leave it so long again, hmm? I missed you. And I know that you missed me. Let’s just not do [...]
