Making Arsenal play again so soon after the Palace match seems a little unfair, but that is how the games come out and so that is the game […]

Are Arsenal Gunning for any other El Clasico Players after Suarez flop?

 

Over the course of Unai Emery’s first season in charge, Arsenal have been putting in better performances and are in the running to claim a very crowded top-four spot. The team needs reinforcing if Arsenal is to challenge for silverware, but so far, the likes of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have proven to […]

Arsenal huge summer clearout predicted, plus call to lay off referees

By Sir Hardly Anyone

Seated as I was, on the morning after the Palace match, in the Toppled Bollard, famed watering hole of the elite of English newspapers’ football reporters I perceived from without the hoof-beats of a galloping hoard of wildbeests as in came four football reporters working in the medium of radio, each […]

Xhaka, Mustafi, Cech, Iwobi, Emery… all battered by the media. But are Arsenal really that inept?

By Tony Attwood

We see it every day – criticism on blogs of particular players and/or members of the management team. Of course the bloggettas, being inherently cowardly they rarely take responsibility for the opinions expressed, but instead quote three or four twitter accounts.

But the impression is clearly given: because these bloggers never […]

Arsenal v Palace: Palace have only ever beaten Arsenal four times. The teams and the form.

by Bulldog Drummond

So since others have now realised that the defining issue in Arsenal’s league position, and the best way to predict results, is the difference between the away and home form, let’s take a look at that.

At home we remain a top three club… (these tables were written before all of this […]

Football in turmoil as media change tack but blogs still attack star players

By Tony Attwood

Is football really falling apart, or is it just the media finding something else to write about? Take a look at these headlines from the Telegraph which suggest there is a certain change of approach going on… (They were all on the Telegraph’s site on one day).

15 transfers to Arsenal this summer and 3 players who are leaving

By Sir Hardly Anyone

Yes those rumours just keep on rolling rolling rolling.

The Daily Mail, the 19th century newspaper with 18th century attitudes is running the old story that Emery has just £45m to spend, although it could be more if we end up in the top four this season. Wow, haven’t heard that […]

Final score and live match report EL Napoli – Arsenal : 0-1

By Walter Broeckx

A few changes compared to our last match at Watford. Maitland-NIles and Sokratis come in at the back and Mustafi drops to the bench. Sokratis who is suspended in the PL so a no brainer for the swap with Mustafi who has to play in the PL next Sunday. 5 at the […]

After 33 games, how is Emery doing compared with Wenger? And a media meltdown

By Tony Attwood

Last night was a moment when anyone listening to BBC Radio 5 would have heard them go apoplectically berserk about Arsenal. Before the game they were saying Arsenal were awful. Terrible. Shocking. After the game by way of variation Arsenal were shocking. Terrible Awful.

Oh yes but Emery had made great strides […]

Final score and live match report Watford – Arsenal : 0-1

By Walter Broeckx

Some rotation as could be expected with this match sandwiched between the Europa League matches. No Sokratis as he is suspended but also a few players getting some rest. Maitland-Niles, Kolasinac, Özil and Lacazette among those who started on the beach. Xhaka returned after injury and the most notable starter is probably […]

Watford v Arsenal: media reveal why they haven’t tackled the home/away issue before

by Bulldog Drummond

I am interested to see that finally, after about 2 years of commentary on the subject from Untold Arsenal, some of the media are actually waking up to the fact that the easiest way to think about Arsenal’s next game is to consider whether it is home or away.

Of course in […]

How are our predictions doing for who will win the top European leagues

By Tony Attwood

Before this season began Untold made a series of predictions as to who would win certain European Leagues. Those predictions were…

England: Manchester City Spain: Barcelona Scotland: Celtic Italy: Juventus Germany: Bayern Munich France: PSG

My point here was not to suggest that I was particularly clever in coming up with these […]

The great transfer race. 10 players Arsenal already tipped to sign this summer

by Sir Hardly Anyone

We have done it for the last three years and it gained some interest. Plus it made a point: 97% of all transfer rumours are gook. Not gobbledegook but just plain gook. So can the media johnnies raise their inventive game and get it up to 98% of their tips utterly […]

10 amazing transfers: Sir Hardly Anyone as the bland lead the bland

by Sir Hardly Anyone.

The bland leading the bland at the Toppled Bollard

As you may have noticed if you choose to meander around the transfer rumours that litter the football websites, no one ever claims to be the source of any transfer story. Rather it is always someone else’s fault. And one can readily […]

Arsenal v Napoli: what Napoli have been up to, and the team for tonight

by Bulldog Drummond

We know that Arsenal results can be more or less predicted by simply looking to see if Arsenal are playing at home or away. So it is worth looking to see if we can gain a similar perspective from Napoli. Here are their last six away games.

Why we can’t stop racists in football in England?

by Tony Attwood

Of course as a regular football supporter who is not a criminologist I can’t give you a definitive answer to that question in the headline. But I can raise a point that I think is sometimes missed in the debate.

At the moment racism in football in England is big news. “Resurgent […]

From the beloved Ashley Cole to outraged footie journalists getting all worked up

By Tony Attwood

There is a sponsored article being advertised on one or two newspaper sites which tells the tale of the richest players who have played in the Premier League. These sponsored pieces are generally not very exciting – the whole point is to get you on the site in order to sell something […]

Final score and live match report Everton – Arsenal : 1-0

Three of the 15 most fouled players in the League are Arsenal men. Why?

By Tony Attwood

Arsenal are the most fouled team in the Premier League – by quite a way. At least that is “most fouled” when the count is taken of fouls awarded by the referees.

The table that shows this is provided by Footstats.co.uk. I’ll comment a little on the sources of the data […]
