Arsenal – Man United. The Untold Preview

D.S. Cabello

The only positive I can take from Saturday’s game is that we’ve now played each other twice. City and Chelsea still have to visit Anfield. So, fingers crossed.

Football is hugely psychological and no defender is nervous when they are two ahead inside 8 minutes. Even Senderos would feel like Maldini with a […]

Liverpool – Arsenal Preview | Rickety Scaffolding and Siege Towers

D. Sanchez-Cabello

I am confident that we will beat Liverpool, though that could be because in recent times Anfield has been a cheerful place. Not since the Crouch hat trick of 2007 have we lost there. How relevant that is, who knows? But it is comforting going to a place I don’t associate with angst […]

Crystal Palace at Home | Pulis and The Hat

It was once sung that “Tony Pulis is a wanker, he wears a wanker’s hat…’, which needless to say isn’t your textbook piece of lyricism, even if it’s descriptive. A clumsy blow made heavily, if you will. In its heaviness it stumbles upon a profundity that is rarely acknowledged.

Tony Pulis is indeed a wanker, […]

Southampton Preview | The Fake Moustache Business

D-Sanchez-Cabello

A couple of months ago, this might have been a more daunting fixture. Since a remarkable start, their form has faltered, an influential chairman has departed and the players have begun head-butting each other.

If I were part of an ambitious lower league club, I’d be studying the Southampton model intently – to the […]

Fulham Preview |A Chink in Man City’s Expensive Armour?

D-Sanchez-Cabello

Today is our 3rd London derby in a month that has consisted of straightforward London derbies. Seems an odd sentence that one, as though it ascends a perfectly symmetrical hill to immediately fall down the other side. Anyway.

Little has changed for Fulham since they appointed Muelenstein, or at least that seems to be […]

Away to The Villans| Match Preview|”Playing with Idiots Syndrome”

D-Sanchez-Cabello

(Comments about dustbins added by the Untold editorial team who seemingly have a fixation about them)

The last time we met Villa – scandalous officiating aside – we lacked the sharpness our game needed. The rustiness that comes from a period of non-competitive football, affects a precise team more than it does a rough […]

‘West London is wunderfulllllll!’: untold Lower league on tour

This article is part of a series in which Untold writers have travelled the length and breadth of the country (well, the Midlands, London and the south) visiting other clubs on days when there is no Arsenal game. Today…

Brentford FC 2-0 Port Vale (Attendance 8,327)

On Saturday my brother and I made our […]

“Why do you want Zidane when we have Tim Sherwood?” | Totts Preview

Dominic Sanchez-Cabello

A pub quiz one for you all: “Why do you want to sign Zidane when we have Tim Sherwood?” was the question asked by Blackburn owner Jack Walker back in 1992.

Lets hope that in time, Levy comes to ask: “why do you want this Klopp bloke, when we have Tim Sherwood?

Tottenham […]

Visit of the Occasionally Blue/ Often Red Birds | Happy New Transfer Window

Sorry its late..

I awoke this morning to find out that it was January – something that displeased me greatly. Christmas had come and gone, the weather had taken a turn for the worse and I had acquired a mysterious headache.

It was also 11am, the red /sometimes blue ‘Birds’ were visiting Arsenal and I […]

Away to Alain Le Pardieu de Newcastle; watching paint

One year to the day after Arsenal 7 Newcastle 3 we meet them again. There’s a link to last year’s fun and games at the end.

Matters Everyone’s Favourite Pundit

Some say that listening to Michael Owen is similar to watching paint dry. I was one of these until quite recently, where awkwardly I […]

West Ham behind the curtains, the methods of Allerdyce, Arsenal rotating

D-Sanchez-Cabello

My dear friends, Merry Boxing Day and all that…

Now I hope, that unlike myself your enjoyment of the festive season does not hinge entirely on Arsenal’s success. Which, of course is a truly absurd way to live… a bit like clinging to a leisurely morphine addiction. Sometimes you enjoy it, but other times […]

Away to Naples Football & Cricket Club | Koscielny and James Brown

Not a bad weekend all things considered. We increased our lead to five points and drawing to Everton won’t have dented our confidence.

How good was Koscielny? The man had Lukaku in his pocket all night…

I’m convinced that two songs alternate in Koz’s head, depending on how he’s feeling. If he’s in that penalty/red […]

Everton Preview | Lukaku, Ghandi and Mourinho

D-Sanchez-Cabello

First things first: Mandela rest in peace. Incredible statesman and remarkable that he lived so long. One doesn’t live to 95 harbouring deep resentment, or despair – as most would from 27 years in a dank cell.

The closest I’ve come to a cell is Bodmin Jail on a school trip – which might […]

Cardiff Away | Mad Ol’ Wayne | Ozil the Quiet: its the Untold Preview

D-Sanchez Cabello

So after a painless Tuesday night in which ITV wasted no chance to talk nonsense, we return to the Premier League to play Cardiff.

As you may have seen: a Cardiff player had the nerve to be kicked by Ol’ Wayne last week! He escaped punishment, but I must implore, as an […]

Arsenal – Southampton | Jack Wilshere | Benzema y Zizou

by D-Sanchez-Cabello

The international break was as droll as expected and watching England left me colder than this weather. Not to mention: when an Englishman celebrates a German scoring a header against his country – what bloody hope is there for international football?

Not much, I watched both games with about as much interest as […]

Arsenal v Liverpool, and why Koscielny dislikes Suarez (Atkinson please note).

Dominic Sanchez-Cabello

To save time, I’ll condense Liverpool to the one player that really matters. Sturridge has been in fine form, but is still rough and Gerrard is almost so polished that no edge remains whatsoever.

My feelings about Suarez haven’t changed; he would complete our team, whilst irreparably damaging Liverpool’s.

He is the most […]

Arsenal – Dortmund: The 4th Real Test for this ‘Untested’ Arsenal Team!

Dominic Sanchez-Cabello

What a goal that was! That’s why we love this game! You see a goal like that and you want to trudge up to the park and kick a ball about… on your own if needed! Somehow the absurdities of a grown man bundling a ball about in a park desert you, when […]

How will Santi-Özil develop this season?

By Walter Broeckx

So finally the long wait was over last weekend and we had the only real important football team around on the pitch again: The Arsenal.

We had a few nervous moments in the last game as Norwich defended rather well at first without really going overboard on the usual kicking part we […]

Match Preview: Arsenal – Norwich/Probert

Dominic Sanchez-Cabello

Two defensive mids may be a bit much for today’s game. After all: we’re at home and they are Norwich – what is there to fear?

Lee Probert, of course… but unless we have Flamini steal his whistle whilst Arteta distracts him, I don’t see how it helps us.

Rest Arteta for Dortmund; […]

Untold Non-league: Robins run out of town in the cup

Stamford AFC 4-2 Ashton United (attendance 301)

With no Arsenal game this weekend Tony and I scoured the fixture lists and came up with what looked like an interesting tie in the FA cup.

For most us the FA cup doesn’t start till January when the 3rd round proper sees the big boys enter […]

Swansea – Arsenal on SNF: Flamini the Heatsink, Redknapp the Fair and Carragher the Sh*t Gary Neville

Dominic Sanchez-Cabello

In recent games, Flamini’s presence has allowed us to be unconcerned about having the ball. Previously, the idea of our opponents having prolonged possession could terrify us, we now tolerate it, depending on which opponent it is and how effectively they can use it.

This tendency predates Flamini and some will have noticed […]

WBA preview

Sorry there was a technical glitch. This post is withdrawn and replaced by the one that appears at http://blog.emiratesstadium.info/archives/31457

Arsenal – Stoke: some bloody team!

Dominic Sanchez-Cabello

So, the good form continues, our ‘downward spiral’ seems to have subsided and Stanford Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down.

In life, I wish only the worst for Stoke. That philosophy almost changed with the sacking of Pulis. But I can’t stand Hughes either, nor am I confident in his inclination […]

It must be hard being a Marseille fan at the moment. Marseille – Arsenal, the Untold Match Preview.

Dominic Sanchez-Cabello

It must be hard being a Marseille fan at the moment. After breaking Lyon’s Ligue 1 monopoly back in 2010, they could have been forgiven for expecting a return to the glory days. They may have to wait, but that wasn’t a problem, fleeting success can be ruinous for smaller clubs. Bordeaux were […]

Untold Non-League: Lillywhites see off the Bluebirds

Cambridge City 2-1 Chippenham Town (attendance 322); the second of Untold’s non-league games from the non-league weekend.

Welcome to the Glassworld Stadium in Impington, near Cambridge, the temporary home of Cambridge City for a Sunday k/o in the CALOR league premier division. The Glassworld is actually Histon FC’s ground and Histon play in the […]
