In this article I am thinking about the not given goal from Bolton against Chelsea when the ball clearly passed the line but nothing was given. And the not given goal in […]

I do like to keep the occasional eye on French football, particularly our loan player, ex-player and indeed the surrogate Man City that Paris St Germain has become. But of course […]

“A world class organisation with a winning mentality” (that’s the FA, not Untold Arsenal)

With over 2000 followers: Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Tony Attwood

The government of the UK has given the governing body of English football until the end of February to sort itself out. Talk about the blind leading the blind…

The threat behind the demand is that the FA will be […]

At last: the ruling on TV rights in the UK is out – and the EPL has lost

By Tony Attwood

The highest court in the European Union has ruled that it is legal for individuals within the EU to buy set-top box decoder cards from other EU broadcasters and watch whatever they have to offer. The ruling cannot be appealed.

That means that in the UK, for example, we don’t suffer the […]

Are Spanish clubs fighting back at last against Barca and Real Mad?

By Walter Broeckx and Tony Attwood

Following Tony’s articles about the problems in the EPL for Everton and in the SPL for Rangers I think maybe we should also take a look at other clubs who we are competing with in Europe.

It has been said on this website Barcelona and Real Madrid are what […]

Stop the transfer madness

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Walter Broeckx

A new season is upon us. But as the rules are so silly with regards to transfers it could well be that any team that starts the season could be a completely different team come 1 September.

I think Fifa and Uefa should do […]

The Premier League will end in 3 years time as we enter the new Super League

By Tony Attwood

In 2014 Blatter will still be in charge of world football. The FA will still be in charge of English football. Uefa will still be there introducing its financial fair play rules – maybe.

Now you might think that football supporters everywhere might welcome anything other […]

Don’t count your chickens, but goal line technology might be here in a year

By Walter Broeckx

So one of my wishes could be fulfilled at the start of the next season. If all goes well we should have goal line technology from the start of the 2012-2013 season on the EPL. If […]

All power to the clubs: let the revolution begin

By Tony Attwood

There is very little that the football associations of various countries can do about Fifa since they have been playing the Fifa game for years. Indeed all the English FA have done is made themselves look stupid. They kow-tow to the Fifa organisation, will not have a word said against it, […]

Ryo Miyaichi: who checks the passport. Oh no oh no oh no!!!

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Tony Attwood

Arsenal have been using Ryo Miyaichi in their friendlies this season – and yet he does not appear to qualify to play in the UK. So what’s going on?

The first possibility is that somehow during his time in the Netherlands he picked up a […]

Arsenal at the under 20 world cup and under 18 European cup this summer.

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Tony Attwood

It is looking like we might have just players in the Under 20 world cup this summer. I don’t have any finalised squad details (if you do, please update) but here’s what I have to go on

Damián Martínez – Argentina

Francis Coquelin and […]

Roman Abramovich and Michel Platini. Who is kidding whom?

By Tony Attwood

For Arsenal to win the league this coming season we need four things to happen.

Quite obviously the team needs to play well. I know it is patently obvious, but sometimes I like the obvious. Equally obvious is that the under 10s say there’s no chance of that, and they are […]

Sometimes the sound of silence makes more noise than 60.000 in the Emirates.

Fifa aim to help Barca with the new 18 player squad rule. Arsenal not affected.

By Tony Attwood

For a while it looked like Man IOU and Liverpool (previously known as the Insolvents) were going to come a cropper over the Uefa financial rules which aimed originally to make clubs playing in European championships be financially solvent. But with those two, and Chelsea and Man City spending like they had […]

There is something unique about Scottish Football

by Tony Attwood

A little while ago the Scottish Football Association threatened to sue a QC who accused it of being “dishonest”, “dysfunctional” and “biased”.

As far as I know, they didn’t, but the mere fact that they said they might, shows that something is amiss in football in the north of the UK.

FA clearly guilty of bringing the game into disrepute. So what’s their punishment

By Tony Attwood . Before England put in their bid for the World Cup they knew that organisation they were dealing with, and the people within it, were corrupt. They must have known because on this site, and of course on many others, there are loads of articles about corruption in Fifa. We even have […]

The idea of an under 18s Champions League built along the same lines as the mainstream competition was first reported (as far as I know) on the Datasport web site in Italy in 2009. Ever since there have been […]

Billy the Dog McGraw runs his finger over Uefa’s financial fair play rules, gets it snagged on a sharp bit and scuttles off to the local A and E for a quick repair.

There is a report on the BBC web site […]

Whatever Wenger and Nasri said, it was the truth and nothing but the truth

By Walter Broeckx

So ref Busacca has made a report about the behaviour of Wenger and Samir Nasri after the game in Barcelona. And now Uefa will charge them both with improper conduct and they could face a ban. In a way this is good news. Because this now gives us the chance to show […]

Fifa seeks to dictate the way leagues work; the leagues fight back

By Tony Attwood

It didn’t make much of an impact in the news when he said it, but S Blatter, head of the discredited Fifa, has demanded a reduction of the number of teams playing in the top leagues in some countries including England.

The man who has presided over the massive growth in meaningless […]

England, Fifa, FA, corruption, incompetence. The ancien régime approaches its end.

So what does England really do about this world cup stuff?

There are some interesting options such as
