Stupid trains and fantastic Frenchmen.

The frequency of bloggage in this place has been so crap that I expect no one will be here to read it but myself. Oh, and my dad who reminded me I have a blog that needs love and attention. So anyway, been very busy of late. Internships are educational, contact-making and helpful for the future… they [...]

Goaly North London derby ends in a draw. Shock.

April 21, 2011 10 Comments by Sian

*stares at screen* *rubs forehead* *whistles* Hm. Where shall we begin? Matches between Arsenal and Tottenham are often high-scoring and there was no doubting how up for it both teams were last night. Both of us had a lot to play for and, in the end, both of us came away disappointed. Might as well [...]

Birmingham vs Arsenal: New Year, 'nother win.

January 2, 2011 22 Comments by Sian

*wipes egg off face* OK, so perhaps sacrificing eight players from our Chelsea win for the Wigan match might have paid off a bit. Birmingham played the same team they put out against Manchester United and it showed, while our fresh-legged lot ran rings around them. When all’s said and done, seven points out of [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

Man City 0 – 3 Arsenal: three points at last

October 25, 2010 26 Comments by Sian

It’s been a while since I’ve woken up the morning after an Arsenal match thinking anything other than “Urgh, gotta avoid the papers today.” Either it’s been because we lost or underperformed or had a player sent off or got a controversial penalty, but there is usually a reason. Today I doubt many of us [...]

Arsenal 5-1 Shakhtar Donetsk- #1 reception for our former #9

October 20, 2010 13 Comments by Sian

Had university for most of the day today, hence the stupidly late post. I did sign up to do a presentation on the Arsenal Magazine though so I wasn’t slacking entirely! Anyway, the return of Champions League football yesterday brought with it the return of scoring, scoring Arsenal- and hasn’t it been missed! It’s funny- [...]

Arsenal 2 – 3 WBA and the case of the flattering result.

September 27, 2010 19 Comments by Sian

If you were to look objectively at this result, you’d think West Bromwich Albion had had a great game. You’d be right. Were you to look at the scoreline in terms of Arsenal you could assume we had fought to the end but had had some decisions go against us and had only missed out [...]

Jack Attacks Spurs as King Henri and Super Sam Reign Supreme!

September 22, 2010 68 Comments by Sian

Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 4 Arsenal Let’s take a minute to appreciate my incredible headline-writing powers right here. When I was at my journalism college, I was told you’re either a great headline writer or you’re not. I was then told “Sian, you’re not”. Anyway. Basically, the only thing missing from last night’s win at White [...]

Arsenal, 2009/2010 – the good, the better and the pretty.

May 18, 2010 11 Comments by Sian

You know when you go on holiday to Disney World and you get to the gate at the front and there’s a perky blonde dressed up as Polly Pocket going “Hi guys! Welcome to Disney! Would you wonderful people like a photo to remember your special day by?” And you’re like “No, it’s my first [...]
