Is there a way to stop negativity in the Premier League?

We knew what it would be like from the very start: Burnley were certain to play 11 behind the ball from the off. With 16 goals scored this season they are bottom of the league in every sense. They came for a draw and got it.

OK it was up to Arsenal to beat them […]

How often are Arsenal getting the same referee this season?

By Tony Attwood

Apologies if you were unable to get onto Untold for a while on 25 January. There was a technical fault, but it’s all sorted now.

Our desire, so often expressed on this site, is that no referee should ever oversee more than two games per club in a season. So we thought […]

Arsenal’s 19 players on loan, and the new Fifa loan regulations

by Tony Attwood

We have often commented on this blog about the way the loan system has been manipulated by certain clubs. And now, years and years after we really started picking up on the story Fifa have said they are going to do something about it!

It was our much missed correspondent Anne who […]

Are Arsenal making progress? Are all our transfer targets the wrong players?

By Tony Attwood

Occasionally this season I’ve tried to compare Arsenal at different times in the campaign, with where we were in recent years.

This is done by taking our league position after a set number of games – today obviously after 21 games.

And it turns out that our position after 21 games has […]

Arsenal v Burnley: Burnley’s problems, Arsenal’s team

by Bulldog Drummond

The oldest team in the Premier League meets the youngest today, as the game today celebrates the anniversary of the purchase of Burnley for £170m. Thus showing new owners don’t always mean new money. ALK Capital have a lot to answer for, but seemingly no money of their own to invest […]

Arsenal v Burnley: the visitors look to be in real trouble.

by Bulldog Drummond

As we have seen (links to past articles are below), everything points to a solid Arsenal win today. History and form are with us, whether it involves looking back across the years, the current season, the last ten games or the last six games. Our one problem might be the lack of […]

Arsenal v Burnley: recent and historical form between the clubs

By Bulldog Drummond

The key issue for Burnley is that they have sold Chris Wood to Newcastle. Although he has only scored three league goals for the club this season, that actually represents almost one fifth of Burnley’s goals. In terms of the league only Maxwell Cornet has scored more in the league for Burnley […]

Arsenal v Burnley absentees, recent form and managerial success.

By Bulldog Drummond

This article continues our match preview series following on from Arsenal v Burnley: tackles, fouls, yellows and home/away form.

When it comes to injuries it might feel like we are top of the league, but in fact that is not the case. Figures as always come from Premier Injuries.

It is interesting […]

Arsenal v Burnley: tackles, fouls, yellows and home/away form

By Bulldog Drummond

The Telegraph is still headlining its utterly misleading notion Why Arsenal’s red cards are a black mark against Mikel Arteta’s management by Sam Dean; an article that deliberately aims at misleading the reader into the notion that Arsenal are a dirty side.

In fact as we saw in Red card plague blights […]

How football has turned into a tax free process of unregulated self-aggrandisement

by Tony Attwood

This article continues from Red card plague blights Arsenal, the plague of blindness blights the media

In my last piece I noted the Uefa Convention on the Future of European Football and the chaos in football in which lots of separate organisations fight for control, and no one group particularly seems […]

Red card plague blights Arsenal, plague of blindness blights the media

Diogo Jota double sends Liverpool to Wembley as red card plague blights Arsenal again

That’s the headline in the Telegraph today in an article by Sam Wallace, their “Chief Football Writer”. So “red card plague” – the new disease – is hitting Arsenal.

Covid certifcate, car insurance, empty seats at £10 each… another Arsenal night

By Tony Attwood

There are euphemisms and euphemisms. The Guardian today says, “Jürgen Klopp’s side mustered all their street-fighting experience to hold them [Arsenal] at bay.”

That’s one way to describe it.

Looking at the team many would probably say that the return to the squad of a 20 a season centre […]

Arsenal v Liverpool: Arsenal’s team and the strange issue of Liverpool’s fouls

By Bulldog Drummond

According to the BBC, “Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta praised his side’s “fight, determination and brotherhood” after the 10-man Gunners frustrated Liverpool in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final at Anfield.” Of course it wasn’t a fair battle, according to the Corporation’s headline because “Liverpool miss Salah & Mane”. Ah, of […]

Arsenal v Liverpool: why do clubs not want to tackle Liverpool players?

By Bulldog Drummond

These are indeed the craziest of football times. With Infantino, head of Fifa, packing his bags and moving to Qatar with his family, seemingly to escape the investigation of his activities by the Swiss authorities who are looking into corrupt and illicit meetings with their most senior lawman, and with the British […]

Arsenal Women v Manchester United Continental Tyres Cup Quarter Final – Match Preview

by Andrew Crawshaw

On Wednesday evening 19 January, Covid permitting, our Women’s team enter the Continental Tyres Cup at the quarter final stage. Due to our involvement in the Champions League group stage we were exempt from the earlier group stage of the competition. Our opponents are Manchester United so I expect this to be […]

Head of Fifa quits Europe and moves to Qatar and escapes Swiss investigation

By Tony Attwood

You will know if you are a regular reader that G. Infantino, the head of Fifa, is under investigation in Switzerland for colluding with the head of the Swiss legal system in a series of illicit, private and unrecorded meetings while he (Infantino) was under investigation.

Now the rest of Europe (but […]

Erling Haaland gives Edu the green light: it’s on for Arsenal

By Sir Hardly Anyone

“Erling Haaland gives Edu green light for new £58m Arsenal signing after fresh transfer update” according to a headline in Football London.

Now FoLo in their funny way are actually not telling us Arsenal are going to sign Haaland, but we can show that this is a false negative and he […]

Why can a newspaper criticise refs in Africa, but not refs in the PL?

The accusation that Arsenal cheated its way into football: and the answer

In response to the article Tackles, fouls, yellow cards, injuries and illness. How Tottenham and Arsenal compare an email came in from Nicklas Skott in which he said, “Why bother about this when you have cheated your way in to football. This club stinks abd now we get to see it again.”

Given that several […]

Tackles, fouls, yellow cards, injuries and illness. How Tottenham and Arsenal compare

By Bulldog Drummond

The Guardian is reporting that Tottenham are annoyed at the postponement of the game today saying that “Tottenham have been left furious… believing rules regarding Coronavirus-related postponements have been manipulated to create “unintended consequences”.”

The Guardian adds that “Arsenal would have been without at least 15 first-teamers for their visit to Tottenham […]

The debate over Arsenal’s postponement of today’s game raises key issue

by Tony Attwood

If you have had a read of some of the commentaries on this site about Arsenal’s request for a postponement of the planned match for today against Tottenham you might notice several points that link the commentaries together.

First, although the articles on, for example, the Liverpool postponement carried a fair amount […]

Tottenham v Arsenal is off, but here’s the team we would have put out

By Tony Attwood (Updated at 1507)

Tomorrow’s game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been postponed after the Premier League accepted Arsenal’s request to postpone the match due to their depleted squad. Although the Daily Mirror never once suggested that Liverpool’s postponement of their League cup game was controversial, this one apparently is.

Reading the Guardian while waiting on news of the Arsenal game tomorrow

By Tony Attwood

At the moment of writing, we are waiting for any news about tomorrow’s match and whether it is on or not, which is a little frustrating since this is normally the moment that we are doing all the regular preview bits. But thank you in the meanwhile to everyone who has dropped […]
