Game 2 Preview: Prelude to a Comeback

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Going into Game 2 there’s lots of stuff that needs to be addressed. The wearing red thing: So RJ made fun of Raptor fans for wearing red while the Nets wore red jerseys, so should we change and wear our home whites? Of course not, that would be retarded. It’s classless of New Jersey to… Read more »

Game 1 Aftermath: Relax, it’s all going according to plan

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I’ve had a chance to have a couple cups of tea and managed to calm down to the point where I can rationally think about what just transpired at the ACC. There’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that we played horrible for the majority of the game – our set-defense was… Read more »

Gunners see off Bolton, Fabregas finally scores

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It got a little nervous when Anelka burned us (again) early but Arsenal mostly dominated and unofficially wrapped up 4th place securing that coveted Champions League spot. Bolton and Ivan Campo’s sorry ass will have to settle for the UEFA cup. As usual we saw some nice misses from Arsenal, something that I’m quite used… Read more »

Better to not create chances than to create them and waste them

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

What a boring, unwatchable and disappointing game between the Gunners and Magpies today. Neither team created any real chances and even when the odd “chance” was created, it was appropriately not taken. Nobody deserved to score and nobody did. Now if Arsenal had dominated the game like they did against West Ham and ended up… Read more »

Same old story, Arsenal dominate but lose

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Defeats can come in a variety of flavours, sometimes you get hammered like we did against Liverpool last weekend but other times you do the hammering but still come out at the wrong end of the result, which is what happened today. Lowly West Ham gets the honour of handing Arsenal their first defeat at… Read more »

Toronto FC games about to start counting

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

The trials and tribulations of a hectic and testing season are about to start for our brand new club. The warm fuzzy feelings of being an expansion team and playing meaningless games against college students are over. Over the last few days, Toronto FC managed to end the pre-season on a high, beating two professional… Read more »

Back to the playoffs

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

If anybody would’ve told me after the Philly Game 7 defeat that it would take the Raptors five years to get to their next playoffs, I would’ve laughed, asked them to STFU and advised them to immediately acknowledge the Raptors as an Eastern powerhouse for years to come. Edit: I forgot about the Chris Childs… Read more »

Arsenal play drunk against Liverpool

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It was like the Gunners had just finished an all-night bar-hopping binge minutes before the game and had managed to tie 20 pound stones to each of their feet just to make things ‘interesting’ against Liverpool. Maybe it was the confidence of already having beaten Liverpool three times this season that they decided that a… Read more »

Arsenal vs. Everton: Andy Johnson ruined my day

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

God damn strikers.  It’s like our legs suddenly stop working and brains stop thinking just as soon as we’re about to do something that counts on the scoresheet.  I’m going to sound like a broken record if I go off on Aliadiere (the SOB should’ve scored man, it’s that simple) or Baptista but thats exactly… Read more »

Raptors vs. Rockets: Uros Slokar returns as Raps lose

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Let’s see, positives, positives, focus on the positives. Hmm, nope nothing comes to mind. Wait, TJ Ford had 8 assists – but hold on, he also had 6 TO’s so that cancels that out. Mo Pete’s back in the starting lineup after grumbling about playing time, he must have made the most of his opportunity,… Read more »

The Knicks are a joke

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Props to The Score – who have the best basketball coverage in Toronto – for coming up with a great intro to the game: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kY9nrxKaAY] Gotta love those Knicks games at the ACC. Somehow they always have a different flavor to them. Stephon Marbury’s talking trash after hitting threes. Marbury’s lobbying for Mitchell to get… Read more »

Arsenal vs. Aston Villa Highlights: Third in the Premiership!

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It was the first game after the Champions League setback and a chance to leapfrog Liverpool in the standings for third place and put a stronghold on a Champions League qualification spot. Just some random thoughts from this game: We really saw the reason why Aliadiere will never be a real first-team player for Arsenal,… Read more »

Injury rules Henry out for season

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

It probably happened three months too late and nobody can say they were surprised when Arsenal pulled the plug on striker Thierry Henry for the rest of the Premiership campaign. With no FA Cup to participate in and freshly booted out of the Champions League, Arsenal’s only interest lies in the Premiership where they’re one… Read more »

Arsenal closure; Champions League Quarterfinal Predictions

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I’ve had some time to recover from the Champions League loss to PSV Eindhoven. To provide some closure to our European disappointment, here are some after-thoughts about the club and the upcoming quarterfinal stage. UEFA held the Champions League Draw for the quarterfinal stage this morning and the results are in: AC Milan (Italy) vs…. Read more »

Arsenal vs. Reading Highlights: Baptista with the winner

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

This blog entry is written in real time. The following takes place between 10AM and 12PM, Eastern Standard Time. It’s time to salvage whatever’s left of the premiership, Liverpool lost so we can secure our place in the top four with a win. Lehmann’s playing instead of Almunia which would tell me that Wenger values… Read more »
