It is strange that the “25” is announced after the first few games – just as it is odd […]

Bem Vindo André Santos

By Walter Broeckx

In another article about one of our new signings I would like to present you our new left back Rudolph André des Santos but you can call him André Santos. And I will call him like that from now on.

He was born in Sao Paulo on 8 March 1983 and is […]

Arsenal now have three teams, all ready to go

By Tony Attwood, on a wet Sunday morning…

It is rare that one can draw up three full Arsenal teams without any overlap of players. And it is impossible (at least for me) to do it without making a muddle of it all especially as one moves down to the second […]

The Per Mertesacker fact files

By Walter Broeckx

As on Untold we do like to make the new players feel like home it is important that you get to know the players a bit more.

So I will try to give you some impressions on Per Mertesacker to start with.

To start with he was born on September 29, 1984 […]

Arsenal Liverpool. The story for the defence

by Arvind

I somehow missed the time of the game and tuned into it 15 minutes late only to see Koscielny hobble off with a terrible looking injury. Hope its good news.

We lost the game though with a desperately unlucky goal, I thought. Not counting the second goal as that was always coming 1-0 […]

Beyond Yann M’Vila: Ignasi Miquel, Francis Coquelin and Marvin Martin

By Tony Attwood

The demands of work took me away from this article after just describing Yann M’Vila. I also wanted to talk about the performance of Ignasi Miquel, Francis Coquelin and Marvin Martin

But first a general point about the signing of kids, that seems to get some people very worked up.

The simple […]

Yann M’Vila + Jack Wilshere = Wow! (Plus Martin and Coquelin)

According to Sky Sports Yann M’Vila ain’t going nowhere. According to Sky SportsReal Madrid and Liverpool have been trying to buy him. According to Sky Sports he has a contract lasting until 2015 which he signed in May.

According to Sky Sports the defensive midfielder believes he is better off continuing his development in France […]

Joel Campbell. 7 players and a new Arsenal partnership arrangement

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Tony Attwood

Joel Campbell has completed a transfer of a little under £1m from Deportivo Saprissa – a record for a Costa Rican player. I feel a little attachment to the lad already since I have actually been to the country, and loved every second of […]

Be very quiet, don’t say a word. There’s good news at Arsenal

By Tony Attwood

There’s a review of the Q and A session that Ivan Gazidis had at the Arsenal Independent Supporters Association AGM this weekend on the AISA web site and I won’t try and expand on that here, save to make one comment.

Mr Gazidis confirmed that once again season ticket renewals had held […]

What is the impact of pre-season games? When should we experiment?

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Walter Broeckx

I was going to write an article about how much pre season friendly games have an impact on the season. Of course as the season is not yet underway we cannot know what the impact will be of those games we have been playing so […]

Hello Alexander Oxlade-Chamberlain, great grandson of the British Prime Minister

By Tony Attwood

I don’t know if Southampton like Arsenal or hate Arsenal, but they are making some money out of Arsenal. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, a winger whom Untold (and the rest of the world) predicted would sign, is undergoing a medical. Arsenal are paying £5m now and the same again later depending on appearances.

From Woolwich Arsenal to Ignasi Miquel. Be a partizan, but smile at the same time

By “Arsenal Forever” (ok its Tony really, but there’s a point to the name)

I’m currently working on a book with two esteemed Arsenal supporters Andy Kelly and Mark Andrews called WOOLWICH ARSENAL: THE CLUB THAT CHANGED FOOTBALL.

Now don’t run away at this point thinking “its another one of those history things, why doesn’t […]

It was Mr Wenger who bankrupted Barca – and he can now destroy them with Cesc

By Tony Attwood

More than 17,000 people voted in a poll about the midfield of Bar Bar Barce this season.

It appears (I have to say this since my Spanish is next to non-existent) that El Mundo gave its readers 12 alternative midfield line ups and people had to vote on the ones they liked […]

The Cesc dilemma: the real reason why we should not let him go

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Walter Broeckx

The questions surrounding Cesc and to a lesser part Nasri are very important issues for Arsenal.

Some supporters are ready to drive them to the airport themselves. I can understand them for a part. After all the tapping up from his Spanish team mates Cesc […]

Thierry tried to play but I said no, no, no

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Walter Broeckx

What a big chance the refs have missed on Sunday.

The plan was that Thierry Henry would have played the last 5 minutes for Arsenal in the game between Arsenal and New York Red Bulls. But the refs didn’t allow this as it was against […]

Will we score more? Looking ahead to the season

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Walter Broeckx

The Arsenal game is very much based on trying to score more goals than the other team. We are a very attacking team and this also leads to the fact that our defenders are under more pressure than defenders in other teams. If you look […]

The three reasons why Cesc should not go to that club in Spain

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Tony Attwood

1. Because as soon as Barca have him they will do the same thing with Ignasi Miquel who left Barca under similar circumstances.

This really is a key point because Arsenal transferred Cesc quite properly within the laws of the game, and yet […]

Ryo, Bartley, Cesc, Nasri, Jagielka, Mata; the new line up and the back up team.

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Tony Attwood

We’ve been debating the work permit situation of Ryo, and the information seems to be that there is no “mother born in Belgium” loophole, and he does need one (a permit that is). So Arsenal are now applying for one.

It is interesting that we […]
