Arsenal 0 – 1 Manchester City Morning all, Well, that’s that then. Our relationship with the Carling Cup is a funny one. It meant not much at all to us for the duration of last season, then we got to the final, and have been carrying the scars of ten seconds of mental FROM that [...]

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

Partizan Belgrade 1 – 3 Arsenal… top of the group.

September 29, 2010 7 Comments by Sian

In the beginning, the Arsenal arrived in the stadium in Belgrade. And the stadium was without light and brightness; and darkness was upon the face of the players. And the Spirit of Arsenal moved upon the face of the fans. And Wenger said, let there be light: and there was light.  And the ref saw the light, that it was [...]
