Apologies for Untold not being here, but we’re getting it sorted.

I am very aware that in the last couple of weeks we have had a number of situations where you may well have found it impossible to load Untold Arsenal.

This has been because our number of readers has gone up dramatically in the last month.  You may recall we were closed down for a while, but when we got the site back running, the readership not only returned to its earlier level – it kept on growing.

And then we got the extra boost after “Making the Arsenal” appeared full on, on the Puma video.

This was all great news for us, but it also meant that we got to the limits that our servers could handle.

It will take a few days to get this resolved, and we’ll continue to publish in the meanwhile.  But if we do go away again, this will be the reason – too many readers trying to access the files.

To stay in touch please do follow us on Twitter (@UntoldArsenal) and also take a look at the Arsenal History blog – when Untold goes down, I often do post information there as a temporary measure.  You’ll find the blog at www.blog.woolwicharsenal.co.uk     Just take a look at the list of reecent articles.

I really am sorry about these problems that Untold has.  Believe me I want the site running smoothly as much as anyone, and I really hope we’ll have achieved this within a few days.

Thank you for reading Untold.  Without you, it would all be pointless.

Tony Attwood

Publisher, Untold Arsenal.

  • bjtgooner

    Thanks for keeping us all advised, too many readers can’t be a bad thing!!

  • Arsenal1Again

    It’s about time Untold receives the volume of readership I have always believed it deserves. I watched you grow from the beginning and yes, there has been outage. I knew you would have it resolved in time so I was not worried like I have been in the past which necessitated an email to Anne.

    Thanks for keeping us up to date. May this site continue to grow from strength to strength 🙂

    And here I was , thinking that my postings was being deliberately being shut out by the moderators
    for my overzealous optimism of all things Arsene Wenger and Arsenal !
    Or could be my brand of humour ?
    More people on here means more minds to ‘corrupt ‘ !

    LOST IN TRANSLATION …AND KARAOKE !

    Sometimes I think its probably due to my Malaysian accent that some jokes go splat . We do talk funny …err differently !

    A GIUDE TO MANGLISH .

    Who says our English is poor ? Just read below – Ours is simple, short, concise, straight-to-the-point, effective etc.
    British English vs. Malaysian English

    WHEN GIVING A CUSTOMER BAD NEWS
    Britons: I’m sorry, sir, but we don’t seem to have the sweater you want in your size, but if you give me a moment, I can call the other outlets for you.
    Malaysians: No stock.

    RETURNING A CALL
    Britons: Hello, this is John Smith. Did anyone call for me a few moments ago?
    Malaysians: Hello, who call?

    ASKING SOMEONE TO MAKE WAY
    Britons: Excuse me, I would like to get by. Would you please make way?
    Malaysians: S-kew me.

    WHEN SOMEONE OFFERS TO PAY
    Britons: Hey! Put your wallet away, this drink is on me.
    Malaysians: No need lah.

    WHEN ASKING FOR PERMISSION
    Britons: Excuse me, but do you think it would be possible for me to enter through this door?
    Malaysians: (pointing at the door) Can ah?

    WHEN ENTERTAINING
    Britons: Please make yourself right at home.
    Malaysians: No need to shy ,shy ,one lah!

    WHEN DOUBTING SOMEONE
    Britons: I don’t recall you giving me the money.
    Malaysians: Where got?

    WHEN DECLINING AN OFFER
    Britons: I would prefer not to do that, if you don’t mind.
    Malaysians: Don’t want lah.

    IN DISAGREEING ON A TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
    Britons: Err…Tom, I have to stop you there. I understand where you’re coming from, but I really have to disagree with what you said about the issue.
    Malaysians: You mad ah?

    WHEN ASKING SOMEONE TO LOWER THEIR VOICE.
    Britons: Excuse me, but could you please lower your voice? I’m trying to concentrate over here.
    Malaysians: Shut up lah!

    WHEN ASKING SOMEONE IF HE/SHE KNOWS YOU.
    Britons: Excuse me, but I noticed you staring at me for sometime. Do I know you?
    Malaysians: See what, see what?

    WHEN ASSESSING A TIGHT SITUATION.
    Britons: We seem to be in a bit of a predicament at the moment..
    Malaysians: Die lah!!

    WHEN TRYING TO FIND OUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED
    Britons: Will someone tell me what has just happened?
    Malaysians: What happened ah? Why like that one lah?

    WHEN SOMEONE DID SOMETHING WRONG
    Britons: This isn’t the way to do it. Here, let me show you.
    Malaysians: Like that also don’t know how to do!

    WHEN ONE IS ANGRY
    Britons: Would you mind not disturbing me?
    Malaysians: Celaka you!

    So which would you prefer? Send this to your Malaysian friends and let them have a laugh too. Good day!
    Malaysians: Sent oredi mah!

    If any one is still following this lesson , the word Celaka is translated as Dammitall by the
    Dictionary.com Translator

    A GIUDE TO MANGLISH

    Many languages now have their version of English.
    For english people Franglais is perhaps the most well known

    Your samples are amusing. Have you more? Perhaps some serious ones?

  • Thanks for the good wishes. It will take a bit of time to get the new server up and running, and of course we have to install all the stuff we put in last time we were being kicked around by those who didn’t like us, but we are working on it.

  • Brickfields Gunners

    Our neighbours in the south have a very similar language called Singlish which you can Google and find some funny stuff .
    Try these –

  • Brickfields Gunners

    Try and see if you can understand this old favourite which often makes its rounds.
    From-
    http://jokes-jokkers.blogspot.com/2007/11/speak-singlish-and-manglish.html

    To those who speak Singlish and Manglish.
    This is hilarious… even an Englishman could not construct sentences using numbers!

    Exclusively. .. only to those great Malaysians and Singaporeans. …….

    Ah Beng was asked to make a sentence using 1,2,3,4,5,6, 7,8,9 and 10 . Not only did he do it 1 to 10, he did it again back to 1.

    This was what he came up with…

    1 day I go 2 climb up a 3 outside a house to peep. But the couple saw me, so I panic and 4 down. The man rush out and wanted to 5 with me. I run so fast until I felt 6 and throw up. So I go into 7 eleven and grab some 8 to throw at him. Then I took a 9 and try to stab him. 10 God he run away. So, I put the 9 back and pay for the 8 and left 7 eleven. Next day, I call my boss and say I am 6 . He said 5 , tomorrow also no need to come back 4 work. He also asks me to climb a 3 and jump down. I don’t understand, I so nice 2 him but I don’t know what he 1 .

    even more people reading Untold – great news for them, and perhaps bad news for institutions like the PGMOL

    @ Bricksfields

    Just came from your mang link and its inspired this from me.

    Doctor to optimistic patient.
    “Sorry (English doctor, your understand) to tell you this but you only have two hours to live. Is there anybody you would like to see before you die?’

    Optimistic patient: ‘Yes a good doctor.’

    Doctor to pesimistic patient.

    ‘You have two hours to live.Is there anybody you would like to see before you die?’

    Pesimisitic patient. ‘Yes, My mother in law.’

    If readership carrys on going through the roof, will you still be able to use the word “Untold”?
