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!). [...]

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 [...]

Double Dutch.

Hello! Sorry it’s been quiet. It’s mostly because, well, a.) it’s been quiet, and b.) I DID write a post last Monday, a really nice long post about nice things that have happened because of Arsenal, but as I pressed ‘Publish’, WordPress decided to only publish a draft I’d saved about two hours previously, and [...]

Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Arsenal Well, there goes that unbeaten run then. I’m not sure how to sum up the performance yesterday because it seems opinions are differing all over the place, and since the end of the match yesterday my mind’s been all over the show trying to decide exactly how well/badly we did play. [...]

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 [...]

The season opens with a fizzle and a whimper.

It’s alright, you can come out from behind the settee now, we’re safe. No comebacks, no penalties, no Phil Thompson going looney at the set of Soccer Saturday – Newcastle away is done and dusted for the rest of the season. After such fanfare/panic/excitement/butterflies/denial floating about with regard to the beginning of the season, it [...]

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 [...]

Arsenal: a case for the defence.

OK, here we go. Inhale. Let’s do this. Exhale. Right. Last night Arsenal were beaten by an excellent team. We had not a single shot on goal and were out-possessed throughout. Congratulations to Barcelona, who now progress. It was a horrible match to watch, made worse by the fact that, from our perspective, it was [...]
