How “The Athletic” touches on issues without realising what they are

by Tony Attwood

It is interesting to see The Athletic in a current article taking an interest in AFTV, and recognising (perhaps a little late in the day) that not everyone who claims to be an Arsenal supporter actually likes AFTV. But I do find it a little frustrating that articles like this are presented […]

Transfers for the big spenders are not working, so why does the media want more of them?

Arsenal v Bournemouth: oh look all the newspaper tittle tattle was wrong

By Bulldog Drummond

If you have been reading all the bloggettas with their tattle and their tittle (that’s tittle tattle if you have only just woken up after a rather fulsome Christmas – but do try to keep up, there are likely to be 700 words or so in this piece) you will know that […]

AFTV get out of our club. Where did it all go so right?

By Tony Attwood

So how did it all go so right? Arsenal Fans TV and its camp follower Piers Morgan have been making fun of Arsenal, its players and its loyal Arsenal supporters for years.

Outrageously proclaiming on its web site that “AFTV is the No.1 Fan Channel on YouTube” it was set up […]

Does booing Arsenal really improve Arsenal’s performances? An investigation.

By Tony Attwood

“How useful is it to boo your own team?” is an article that appeared in the Guardian newspaper a few weeks after I started writing more specifically than in the past about the subject.

Of course that doesn’t mean that they have picked up the idea from Untold […]

Why the media’s unified view of Arsenal is so utterly dangerous

by Tony Attwood

Prelude: If this article looks to be in a strange format, my apologies. We are trying to get rid of a bug in the system to ensure that Untold looks ok on all devices, and for the moment there appear to be problems throughout the site.

And so now we know what their victory looks like

By Tony Attwood

And so now we know. Just as our ancestors allowed the Hill-Wood family and their allies to force out Henry Norris – the man with the vision of a club owned by its members, and with the best manager in the land – so our generation has allowed that combination of journalists […]

Newspaper claims Arsenal “should have been applauded as CHAMPIONS if officials had done their jobs properly.”

By Tony Attwood

 

“The Gunners should have been applauded as CHAMPIONS if officials had done their jobs properly.”

To confirm from the off, that is not a quote from Untold, but from a national UK newspaper – the Sun. OK not my favourite paper, but actually one that I would have said a year […]

How Tottenham always fall apart how Arry is always good for a larf, and how Motd rearranges reality.

Tabloid Sports journalism? It belittles, it crushes the spirit and it does so out of pique

By Blacksheep

In 1886 William Stead (the campaigning editor of the Pall Mall Gazette – one of the very first ‘tabloid’ style newspapers) declared that:

“Nothing can ever get itself accomplished nowadays without sensationalism. In politics, social reform, it is indispensable”

What Stead realised was that the press (the only media available in late Victorian […]

An AISA evening with Alan Smith & Paddy Barclay

One of the benefits of being a membership of AISA is the handful of events they organize each year. This one was really interesting, a chance to meet Alan Smith and the renowned sports journalist, Patrick Barclay and be entertained by Tom Watt (ex Eastenders’ ‘Lofty’ and full time Arsenal fan).

The event took […]

At last the English media recognise there’s something seriously wrong with the referees

By Tony Attwood

And so, after years of pointing out that there is something seriously wrong with refereeing in the Premier League, the English papers have started to admit that there might be a problem.

Not all of them, and most are hedging their bets talking of referee mistakes, and the views of “Arsenal supporters”, […]
