After posting a funny piece on the comment pages of UA  at,re :  LIFE SKILL CLASS – HOW TO SPEAK TO WOMEN  and followed it with one about  LESSONS FOR  ‘them’ as to how they should behave towards AKBs, it felt incomplete somewhat for me, so I am going to revisit and refresh it. With some modifications .

And seeing  all the crap comments being posted over the last few days, I too want to join in the  spirit of throwing!

So here we go …….


DANGEROUS: Who died and made you AKBs king?

SAFER: I fully understand your commitment and passion.

SAFEST: I bow before your age, superior intellect and wisdom .

ULTRA SAFE: Here, have some more wine .

SUPERULTRA SAFE: I think I ‘ll just scarper off and leave this site to you.



DANGEROUS: I played in the  ……………( Fill in name of league -eg , Micky Mouse , Peanuts , Juvenile or Prison ….etc)

SAFER: I once played for  North / South England School Boys ‘ vs the Channel Islanders .

SAFEST: I was the top player in my school /village / factory till ……….(state nature of  injury, indiscretion or crime.)

ULTRA SAFE: I was an average player, but did spend much time studying the game while frequently on the bench.

STUPID: I am the current  champion of the  FIFA , EUFA , EPL, SKY , SUN , TALKSHITE or …….. Fantasy  League.

‘ them ‘: I could have been a great player , if I was not untimely incarcerated at HRM’s pleasure . After all, my only crimes were that showed my privates to  some birds and shot at some guy all  just for a lark.



DANGEROUS: I have managed  teams in the …(xyz)…League , following the principles of the great Charles Hughes, Don Revie and   the Moaning one.

SAFER: I once managed a  very excitable team of mixed / indeterminate genders and it was such a carefree and gay affair .

SAFEST: I like to think of myself as an ardent student/learner  of the game and have read many books by all the top managers.

ULTRA SAFE: I have watched hours and hours of Youtube videos of famous great managers and have gleaned much.

STUPID: I am the current  champion of the  FIFA , EUFA , EPL, SKY , SUN, TALKSHITE or….. Fantasy League.

‘ them ‘   –   How hard could it really be ?  Just pick  and buy your top eleven World Class players and , hey presto you’re  done !



DANGEROUS: Spend our fucking money on new players , get a new manager , reduce ticket prices and don’t take any  more money  out  of the club, Stan!

SAFER: Spend only half of that  250 million in the bank on new players now , we may need fresh reinforcements in January .

SAFEST: Just buy a World Class striker and a WC Central Defender and I know  that all our  lives will change for the better .

ULTRA SAFE: Bring the major shareholders to the negotiating table and get them to settle their differences and to contribute even more money.

STUPID: ARSEXIT out the foreign  shareholders , Ivan Gazidis, the French manager, the useless medical staff and bring in …………… (?)  Someone who has some experience in similar exits.

‘ them’  –  We want  ‘our ‘  Arsenal  back. Back to the greatness (?) that was, and that  is due only to us . Our rightful   birthright.



DANGEROUS: I qualified with a Summa Cum Laude from the University of life’s  hard knocks .

SAFER: I picked up  very valuable tips from the ‘gang’ on the dole queue and at the pub afterwards.

SAFEST: I read all the sportspages while waiting in the dole queue , and absorb much from the sports programmes on tv at the pub.

ULTRA SAFE: I read all the blogs with an open mind and try to make informed choices and opinions , without any feelings of angst or   anger.

STUPID:All my understanding comes from  reading The Sun  and  watching MOTD   – many of  their experts were  great England  internationals. Some even managed clubs.

‘ them ‘ – Piers Morgan and Talkshite are for me , like the nectar of the gods , and my cup runneth over .

To be continued …… go on , feed me with some more ammunition  so that I can fire back.

Thank you .

  • brickfield that’s waaaay too much for “them” to understand.

  • bushido

    they will keep on coming my KL’s homie, but as usual i think u are more than capable to teach ‘them’ concrete thinker some lesson + manner about respect. but i suspect when it involving AW even it is a positive thing’ about a life lesson for example, they will not take it kindly mostly cos all their feeling toward AW has become so toxic and turn into hatred. but u already cast your line into the water, if they take the bait we will see how negative and idiot some people really are. keep exposing them’ BG

  • westwing

    How self centred and bitter my nephew says. I always say funny people do not have to say they funny. Them are funny and humble. Some like BG never learn. That is funny.

  • Kenneth Widmerpool

    Top class Bricks me old mucker! More more more!

  • bushido

    this one guy keep talking about his nephew, why i’m not surprise when some adult behave like petulant childish kids. it turn out when a grown man takes child words literally, they started to behave like one(catch my drift). people like this cannot be help anymore, dont be surprise if they start to show pattern of mourinho like behavior (u know the one that abused woman for no reason, turn out she just doing her job). such a shame some of them were (barely)supporting (mostly moaning and protest) the same club as i am. what more can i say, sometime life is unfair.

  • Chris

    This is pathetic…

    here is the headline of a Telegraph story that is online :

    “Jose Mourinho Man Utd Paul Pogba transfer Arsenal Wenger”

    Is this english, I mean the language of Shakespeare, the one spoken in England ? or just some words piled unpon one another ?

    The more I think about it, the more I am getting convinced that this whole blogosphere is just robots building stories by putting together words and paragraphs taken from other sources.

    Guess it just justifies me coming here….

  • Leon

    Yes, I know how you feel.
    It’s called self delusion, hubris or just plain “up your own arse” (most appropriate on an Arsenal blog).
    Roll on the start of the football season and we can get rid of this sort of crap.

  • Goonermikey

    The brilliance of this will certainly be lost on everyone who clicks the dislike button……..which merely serves to demonstrate it’s truth……

  • Gunnerjoe

    Self delusion,hubris etc, etc
    Kettle have you meet pot

  • Leon


  • Gunnerjoe

    Good teenage girls reply
    What’s next omg

  • Brickfields Gunners

    WOW ! Only 13 Dislikes ? Must be losing my edge ! Or I might have stunned ‘them’ into awed silence and may have incapacitated their mental faculties . Not that they had much to start with !
    And since I notice that most of ‘them’ don’t seem to enjoy it , I’ll endeavour to post more articles such as this .

    WOO HOO , HOO , to the rest of the regulars ! Thank you guys . Keep on smiling .
    Up the Gunners !

    And continuing in our attempts to improve the mindset and thus the enjoyment of Arsenal fans , here is an interesting piece titled ….

    by Adi Shankara

    1. Maturity is when you stop trying to change others, …instead focus on changing yourself.

    2. Maturity is when you accept people as they are.

    3. Maturity is when you understand everyone is right in their own perspective.

    4. Maturity is when you learn to “let go”.

    5. Maturity is when you are able to drop “expectations” from a relationship and give for the sake of giving.

    6. Maturity is when you understand whatever you do, you do for your own peace.

    7. Maturity is when you stop proving to the world, how intelligent you are.

    8. Maturity is when you don’t seek approval from others.

    9. Maturity is when you stop comparing with others.

    10. Maturity is when you are at peace with yourself.

    11. Maturity is when you are able to differentiate between “need” and “want” and are able to let go of your wants.

    and last but most meaningful !

    12. You gain Maturity when you stop attaching “happiness” to material things !!

    Wishing all AKBs out there a happy matured life.

  • Brickfields Gunners

    Dear Mr. Adi Shankara ,

    Having read your very enlightening piece on “What is maturity ?” , I wish to inform you that while most of your points are more than acceptable to me , yet there are a few that I have certain concerns with.

    I read a very good ,informative and intelligent football blog called Untold Arsenal that in essence follows nearly all of you suggestions ; but there are group of people whom we shall ‘them’ , who are totally out of whack with reality , yet insist on coming and talking utter poppycock ( to put it mildy !), and exhibiting their stupidity ,despite being mentally overwhelmed by the regulars , the famed , AKBs.

    So I will now try my best toenlarge upon my personal discombobulations – vis-à-vis – ‘them’ .

    Number 1. – Done . No arguments from me.

    2. I do try and accept that many of ‘them’ are immature and stupid . But the degree of it is what astonishes me !

    3. No way , Jose ! Not if their perspective is through their arses !

    4. , 5. & 6. – No issues there .

    7. I don’t really have to try very hard to prove it , but ‘them’ fools keep reminding me of it !

    8., 9 , & 10 . – Again , all good .

    11. Is wanting Arsenal to do and play the right way , a ‘need’ or a ‘want’ ?

    12. BINGO !

    So I do hope you are able to answer favourably to my present conundrum.
    Thank you .

    Yours in the search of enlightenment ,

    The Brickfields Gunners .

  • westwing

    Thank you Leon and seems Bushido is type who has seen little of Arsenal who I watched when a shilling was the price and who is easy upset. Must be older than Chief Arsene and may they send each other signals of smoke. Poor Brickman keep trying but end of the pier warm up my missus say. That is funny too.

  • bushido

    ohh pity old westwing, been watching Arsenal for many years he said but still dont know what his club philosophy and how it should be for certain type of supporter who understand the value and what his or her club stand for plus they can be proud of their club heritage. seem to me poor old westwing is the type who want his club to be let astray and copied the way of other club with rich owner who in a turn of the new millennium, yet to built their new stadium or stadium is given to them by the tax payer.

  • Gunnerjoe

    So if you paid a shilling to get in to the manor ground you where robbed.
    All joking aside when did you pay a shilling to get in to Highbury and how many trophies did win.

  • Leon


    If you’d just stop your trolling for a moment and check, you’ll see that it was westwing who paid “a shilling”. He must go back a long way. Unlike some of the waggon jumpers this blog attracts.🖕🏽

  • westwing

    Hello Leon again and yes when Baker and Eastham were playing and 12 and bit to enter North Bank. Have problem writing like Joe has reading. He sound like he must think Holloway on Mars. As faraway as the brick that told jokes.

  • Leon

    Absolutely right.
    I think Gunnerjoe has made up his mind he’s going to troll me. No problem, he’s not very bright (as you say) and probably never even been to a match, like Brickfields who’s such an expert.

  • bushido

    some(fr4ud) don’t need to be troll cos here at UA we already knew what type of person some people really are.(just look at that card u keep playing) probably never even been to a match u keep saying to other people, seriously u need to grow up fast. if u think EPL is just for people in the UK why the club keep reaching out to fans all over the globe? playing match in Asian, America and other part of the world to make the brand known globally. i already told u people who live in the glass house shouldn’t throw stone but apparently u sort of type who don’t even understand the meaning of your own language. i already made it clear if people take the bait we will see what type of stage or ability of some people mind is really are.
