Untold hits Arsenal.


By Tony Attwood

As you may know, Arsenal.com occasionally take articles from Untold Arsenal, and our companion blog on Arsenal’s History

The articles that Arsenal.com pick up are very much chosen by themselves – we don’t have any influence over it.

And this is the case with the piece written recently by Walter: Coquelin comes of age.

It is now showing at


Congratulations to Walter – and many thanks to the team at Arsenal.com   We certainly do like such recognition.


PS  from Walter: And before anyone uses this to say that we are being paid for this by Arsenal,  I would like to tell them that we don’t get a penny for this, let alone one eurocent or one dollar cent. Nothing.  But it is a big honour, that is for sure.

  1. Do Arsenal ask permission for use of a blog? Do Arsenal notify you of any changes or omissions re: the article?

    I’m just interested. I’m glad Walters piece was published.

    I bet you’ve been out dancing and jiving with petrol money provided by the millions you’ve received via my hard earned season ticket!


  2. Arsenal approached me a few years ago, to ask for the right to reprint a particular article, and subsequent to that we agreed a process that could be used.

    So yes, it has all been agreed between both sides.

    And no, you can’t have my season ticket Rantetta. But you can get tickets for a lot of games with a Red membership.

  3. Congrats to Tony, Walter and the entire Untold Arsenal family for this recognition. I can only assume that Arsenal.com are aware of all ref related articles and associated figures from UA and something is being done at club management level to address the anomaly behind the scene since we have not seen any move by the club openly.

  4. Thanks for your reply, Tony. (Not necessarily the bit where you won’t give me your ticket, haha).

    It’s great that the dot com use your articles. It proves that they read them, inc. the refshite stuff, which in turn means “Arsenal knows”. But it also means people who go to the dot com can choose to visit UA. I’m sure you all have worked that out already. Very well done, Untold Arsenal.

  5. It seems to me a quiet honour that Arsenal.com sees fit to reproduce any item from Untold.
    Having said that, permission should always be sought. And an appropriate acknowledgement made as to the origin of the article.

  6. Hearty congratulations to Walter and to Untold!

    I’m a red member and I can confirm that it is worth the money!

  7. Walter Tony does this mean you can ask if anything has been fine about our horrendous tackles to arsenal.com?

  8. Again , congrats to all ! Glad to see the number one AKB blog being given due recognition . Well done .
    And Tony , please tell them that they can use any/all of my jokes and medical pieces ,free of charge !
    They don’t belong to me anyway, but it would please me no end to them on Arsenal.com !

  9. Good point Damilare, the fact that Arsenal.com are aware of UA and use articles from here (rightly so as by and large some excellent pieces on here), this could lead to the conclusion that they are well aware of the ref reports, half term analysis etc and I cannot believe for one second that they would fail to act appropriately.

  10. Here’s a sample –

    Fireman’s Love Life

    A fireman came from work one day and told his wife, “You know, we have a wonderful system at the fire station. Bell 1 rings and we all put on our jackets. Bell 2 rings and we all slide down the pole. Bell 3 rings and we’re ready to go on the trucks.”

    “From now on,” he said, “we’re going to run this house the same way.” “When I say Bell 1, I want you to strip naked. When I say Bell 2, I want you to jump into bed. When I say Bell 3, we’re going to make love all night.”

    The next night the fireman came home from work and yelled, “Bell 1!” and his wife took off her clothes. “Bell 2,” and his wife jumped into bed. “Bell 3,” and they began to make love. After two minutes his wife yelled, “Bell 4!”

    “What the hell is Bell 4?” the husband asks.

    “Roll out more hose,” she replied, “you’re nowhere near the fire!”

  11. I think it’s the second or third time I’ve read articles from Untold at the Arsenal website, but even if by the time they are at Arsenal.com, I would have read them already, it still feels good.It also shows that if one has an opinion, it could still be heard at Arsenal even if I don’t comment on their website.

  12. Well done Tony, Walter and all the other contributors.

    It is very pleasing to know there are supporters out there that actually ‘support’ this great club. The Arsenal deserves priase and complimentary comments regarding teh way the club has run, especially in the face of such hostile ‘opposition’.

    Very pleased the club recognises the support Untold provides.

    Well done, once again.

  13. Thanks ob1977, It would be very interesting to know that UA contributes in no small measure to correcting the referee bias against Arsenal.

  14. Well done Untold and Walter – it is very gratifying that Arsenal.com reviews UA articles and has selected this one to reprint.

    @Brickfields – trust the fireman was an AAAA specimen!!

  15. Tony.
    “Arsenal approached me a few years ago, to ask for the right to reprint a particular article, and subsequent to that we agreed a process that could be used”

    Your 100% support of this wonderful club deserves such acknowledgement Tony.

    Finding Untold eliminated the anger and frustration I used to feel whenever I read an Arsenal article online. So thank you.

    You demonstrate incredible pride in supporting this wonderful club and there is real appreciation regarding the huge honour and privilige we have. This passion is what it is all about.

    Great stuff.

  16. @ bjtgooner -January 22, 2015 at 5:41 pm – Although I’ve stopped mentioning ‘them’ by name (as per the executive directive at the last AGM of the AKBs in Cayman Island in Dec 2014 !) , ‘they ‘ are never far from my (naughty!)thoughts .
    Regular readers now can take it for granted that my every barb , joke and insult is solely directed towards ‘them’ , but then again its straight and true from the heart , and as Samuel Taylor Coleridge says , ” What comes from the heart goes to the heart.” Ouch !
    Then again, he also said , ” “No mind is thoroughly well organized that is deficient in a sense of humor.” (I would rather think that their minds are so disorganised that it is deficient of any sense , but probably full of humus !)

  17. While finding the above quote , came across some that would make sense to an AKB and his journey of faith.

    “Faith is a continuation of reason. ”

    “He who does not care for Heaven but is contented where he is, is already in Heaven.”

    “The advantage of doing one’s praising for oneself is that one can lay it on so thick and in exactly the right places.”

    “The course of true anything does not run smooth.”

    “Don’t go through life, GROW through life.”

  18. @ Damilare – January 23, 2015 at 7:59 am – thanks , keep smiling !

    A girl is said to be grown up when she starts wearing a bra.
    A boy is grown up when he starts removing it….!!

    We all love to spend lots of money buying new clothes but we never realise that the best moments in life are enjoyed without clothes….!

    Having a cold drink on hot day with few friends is nice, but having a hot friend on a cold night after a few drinks – PRICELESS….!

    Breaking news: Condoms don’t
    guarantee safe sex anymore! A friend of mine was wearing one when he was shot dead by the woman’s husband….!!

    Arguing over a girls breast size is like choosing between Kingfisher, Fosters, Carlsberg & Budweiser. Men may state their preferences, but will grab whatever is available….!!

    Why Can’t Anybody Satisfy A Woman Completely….?
    Because Nobody Has A Dick Made Of Gold, Decorated With Diamonds And Ejaculates Cash….!!

    Why Did Newton Commit Suicide….?
    Because He Saw A Complete Naked Girl, And Observed Something Going Up In His Pant, Against His Own Laws Of Gravity….!!

  19. Her first time –

    As you lie back your muscles tighten. You put him off for a while searching for an excuse, but he refuses to be swayed as he approaches you.

    He asks if you’re afraid and you shake your head bravely. He has had more experience, but it’s the first time his finger has found the right place. He probes deeply and you shiver; your body tenses; but he’s gentle like he promised he’d be.

    He looks deeply within your eyes and tells you to trust him-he’s done this many times before. His cool smile relaxes you and you open wider to give him more room for an ease entrance. You begin to plead and beg him to hurry, but he slowly takes his time, wanting to cause you as little pain as possible.

    As he presses closer, going deeper, you feel the tissue give way; pain surges throughout your body and you feel the slight trickle of blood as he continues. He looks at you concerned and asks you if it’s too painful. Your eyes are filled with tears but you shake your head and nod for him to go on.

    He begins going in and out with skill but you are now too numb to feel him within you. After a few moments, you feel something bursting within you and he pulls it out of you, you lay panting, glad to have it over. He looks at you and smiling warmly, tells you, with a chuckle; that you have been his most stubborn yet most rewarding experience.

    You smile and thank your dentist. After all, it was your first time to have a tooth pulled.

  20. @Tony thanks for that piece,if it was not you and your team nothing could have been recognized without your hard work.@Damilare, Arsenal and Arsene are aware of Untold Arsenal because the last time i suggested that Szczesny was a bit tired and he wanted a breather in the next match it was Ospina.

  21. oh brickfields gunner i liked the last one a piece, of meat can give them so much pleasure,ha ha ha ha ha then they better start eating meat.
