Sky gives major coverage to the “Football should be an art” banner at Man U game

By Tony Attwood

If you have been with us for a while you’ll know that Untold Arsenal readers and members of Arsenal Independent Supporters Association combined to create the banner…

For the match today against Manchester United  (30 January) Sky decided to put a shot of the banner on the screen and hold it for quite a moment, while talking about the club.

It’s the second time I’ve seen a long held shot of the banner on the TV screen – the BBC did a long hold on the banner for Arsene Wenger’s final game.

There is a celebration of our coming together to put up that banner with the club’s permission in a permanent page on Untold.

Thank you once again to Drew Grey and everyone at Arsenal Independent Supporters Association, and indeed everyone else who worked with us to get that banner made, and to convince Arsenal that it should be on permanent display.

We’ll be talking to Arsenal again in the coming weeks to ensure that they realise just how important the banner has become as part of the media recognition of Arsenal and its heritage.

All we need to do now is win the match.

  1. To the wife:

    That’s ours that’s OURS, we did that.

    Our homage to the greatest manager we’ve ever had. So proud.

    As for today. Decent performance. Just shaded it but I’ll take a draw.

    Nice to see Luiz get the MOTM. Personally I’d of given it to Holding but they were both exceptional today.

  2. Indeed Nitram I felt extremely proud when I saw it in the picture for a long time. It is ours and ours alone! And with ours I mean the whole Untold team: writers and readers!
    As for the match I would have loved a win but with the absence of Tierney and Saka and Auba we weren’t with our best team today so will take the draw

  3. I have also thought William’s form disappointing. Today, however, I thought he played well, but for the failure to take the chance to score.

    Martin Ellis had had a quiet first half, but his defensive diving header to intercept Rashford was superb

  4. Was surprised to see it being displayed so prominently , and I did inform my Chelski loving son , that it was OUR banner . That it was the UA ‘s tribute to our great manager .
    Truly cheered me up no end ! I always tried looking for it , but never could see it during our games.
    I guess like Walter and the others , I was not too disappointed with the point . We were lacking that killer punch needed .I truly don’t think we were being dominated , though we did have to defend very deep early one.
    I loved the way we started the second half .
    Up the Gunners !

  5. As I said earlier on in the season I think Man City and Liverpool are a class apart from the rest, although Liverpools current form is a little perplexing. Maybe a combination of their best defensive player being injured and their best offensive player being out of form and possibly a little of ‘after the lord mayors show’ for some of the players.

    Either way, apart from those 2 I think we are easily as good as Man Utd Spurs, Chelsea, Leicester, Villa et el, which is why I had a £10 ew (top 2) on us at 50/1 for the title before the season started.

    Did I really think we could do it. Not really, but Spurs were 12/1 and we were 50/1 and that was just ridiculous. Worth a punt.

    with a 10 point gap to Utd in 2nd it’s still not impossible but very tough. If we’d won last night it would of been 7 points and then 50/1 really would of looked an absolute steel.

    Either way my feeling that this squad is actually pretty good doesn’t look such a bad call after all.

  6. There are many teams in with a shout of European places and we are amongst them .
    The games in hand situation will be interesting as the ones without European football will suffer from fixture congestion that they probably did not account for it when they voted down the 5 subs idea.
    I settled for a point when Martinelli went off and only got nervous in the last few minutes mainly because of the past record of unaccountable things happening to them in that period .
    With Tierney and Martinelli seemingly not fully fit you can see where the Patrick van Aanholt rumours have sprung from . It could be a decent deal providing we don’t go nuts and saddle ourselves with another Willian type contract . We have enough over 30’s on three year deals already.
