Smoking guns and battered chickens. :)

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!). [...]

Swansea City 3 – 2 Arsenal Alright here’s the deal. In May 1998 I woke up one morning and watched this team called Arsenal (who?) win this trophy shaped like a head with big ears, against a team dressed as bar codes. I know that at the time I’d seen this strange team in red [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

RvP, his invisible team-mates, a mad match and a wonderful win.

Chelsea 3-5 Arsenal I normally sit here staring at a blank computer screen not knowing how to begin when we’ve done an Arsenal and imploded in spectacular fashion. It’s been a long time since I’ve sat here not really knowing what to say thanks to the brilliance of the previous day’s events. Happily though, this [...]

Arsenal win a game, RvP turns 100!

Arsenal 3 – 0 Bolton Wanderers Two goals in and we started singing the ‘We are staying up’ song. I do love a whinge, and I have exercised this fondness on this blog many a time, but in that moment I absolutely adored our home crowd. I’ve always maintained you need only two ingredients to be [...]

Bite, Borussia Dortmund, and a Burning Face.

Borussia Dortmund 1-1 Arsenal (London) A Girl Who Loves The Gunners is about as rubbish at posting promptly after matches as Arsenal are at defending a lead! Wait, no, in this instance this example is unfair. We will get into the reasons as to why, now. Firstly, if matches are going to be as tense [...]

Good riddance to 2010-2011!

Words, words, everywhere, and not a clue which to use. It’s the end of the rainbow, and the pot of gold is not there. I was adamant at the start of the season there would be one, two, three or four. As the season progressed, I thought just the one would do. Then one stepping stone [...]

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 [...]

A 1-3 win and a stick of rock.

Three points! Three points! Three big fat juicy nutritious points! I feel like we’ve been existing on one of those detox diet plans where you eat little and often but never until you’re full up and as a result exist as a hungry and miserable, quite spotty human being. But yesterday, we filled our boots. [...]
