Live: Arsenal vs Hull

Welcome to the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Hull City at the Emirates Stadium, brought to you by Arsenal’s official car and van rental partner Europcar.

The Gunners had remained unbeaten at the beginning of this campaign before their 2-0 loss to Chelsea in their last outing and will be hoping to bounce back […]

Live: Arsenal vs Tottenham

Welcome to the first north London derby of the 2014/15 season, brought to you by Arsenal’s official car and van hire partner Europcar.

Both sides have endured a fitful start to the season, though the Gunners arguably come into the tie at the Emirates as the in-form side, having put Aston Villa to the sword […]

Untold internationals (or the interlull as @arseblog calls it!)

As the cleaners move in to tidy up all the shards of glass that were smashed when the transfer window slammed shut we woke up to find we have one extra international footballer. Welcome Danny Wellbeck!

Once before I attempted to see where our current squad would be getting injured while away from Arsenal duty, […]

The Final

A very good day to you all! I’ll keep it short, as there are better things to be doing on a beautiful day in the merry-month-of-May.

I slept in my Arsenal shirt last night – my only Arsenal shirt I hasten to add. I knew full well I’d have to wear it today, but I […]

Newcastle Preview | Danny Dyer and Depressed Sloths.

Mourinho wasted 180 minutes of our lives and got called a genius for it.

Newcastle

Lately, Newcastle have displayed about as much motivation as a depressed sloth – which is understandable considering they hit the 40 point mark sometime back in January. Incidentally, around the time Cabaye left and Pardieu started fighting people. Since […]

Away to The Hull Badgers

It’s Cup final season, so in the spiritual sense every game is a cup final. This one is no different, aside from it being a little different from your classic cup final. What it is though, is a nice chance to size each other up before Wembley.

Hull City are one of the few struggling […]

So, Sam, 38 Points – Should be enough, shouldn’t it?? | West Ham Preview

Right, my Internet is still down so I am writing this freestyle, feeling like a Google-shaped section of my brain was removed when I wasn’t looking.

(Tony, how’d you do this in the olden days?!)

Playing West ham at the Emirates should never be a cause for concern, should it? Their resurgence came at just […]

Everton Away Preview

D-Sanchez-Cabello

I’ll begin with the good news. Ramsey is back, with a chance of featuring today. It would seem slightly premature to start him, but you never know.

Ramsey’s importance is hard to overstate. To my mind we haven’t had a more complete midfielder since Vieira. His early season form was magnificent and as a […]

Ritual Sacrifices and David Moyes | Man City Preview

D-Sanchez-Cabello

Earlier in the season, these match previews were written with a small amount of logic. They might adhere to something along the lines of: said team has weakness, which compliments certain strength of ours. Sometimes it worked, other times it didn’t, but there was at least a certain amount of reasoning behind a wild […]

Untold creates the agenda and the papers follow. Mystifying eh?

By Tony Attwood

We screwed up today, and I have a team from GCHQ looking into it. Dominic’s preview was written and ready to go, and it didn’t go. But since Untold always goes where others don’t it is published below. Sorry dom.

But, here’s the thing. After four episodes of the new major series […]

What’s the Bavarian for ‘Més qué un club’ ?? | Bayern Away Preview

D-Sanchez-Cabello

Bayern Munich are a behemoth and behemoths are rarely attractive. They are the leading club in the largest market in Europe. Ally that to the distinct national feeling in Bavaria and you start to see why Bayern are able to bludgeon their competitors each year.

I’m torn on the Bundesliga, there are bits of […]

Arsenal – Everton | FA Cup Preview

An early Kick Off today between two teams in a bad pocket of form. Indeed the form table has it down as a clash between 11th and 14th.

For whatever reasons, lunchtime matches haven’t been a strong point – the results in Liverpool and Manchester springing to mind.

Last time we played Everton they seized […]

Coventry City 0-0 Shrewsbury Town, complete with Arsenal’s Chuba Akpom

———————————————- Coventry fail to tame the shrews*

Sky Bet League One, Sixfields Stadium, Northampton – Attendance 1,966

So on a bright sunny day in Northampton (not) and with nothing better to do (except mark essays) it was off to see a local football match to take the mind off Saturday’s defeat. I arrived early, narrowly […]

Stoke…

D-Sanchez-Cabello

So today we travel to Stoke, a place where it seems we are destined to be embroiled in some narrative or other. From the moment this northern club with a reverence of physical courage and graft came to the Premier League, I guess it was obvious that it would be played-off against this southern […]

Munich At Home| Heynckes, Pep, Redknapp…

D-Sanchez-Cabello

Apparently Harry Redknapp has allowed Bayern to use QPR’s facilities. Not an exceptional story, as apparently many teams visiting London have used Loftus Road over the years. It did strike me as amusing though. You can just imagine Harry loitering around, ready to sell a few ‘bargains’.

‘Accidentally’ he might bump-into Arjen Robben:

“Ello […]

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 […]
