Untold preview: Arsenal versus Chelsea

By Phil Gregory

After a disappointing result at home against Wigan, Arsenal are back in action versus Chelsea in Saturday’s early kick off. Chelsea come into the game off the back of an impressive defensive display a demonstration of how not to finish a series of solid chances by Barcelona, and I can’t imagine many […]

By Arun

Week 35

This one will be a quick and short preview due to my exams which are beginning on Monday and time comes at a cost during such ‘difficult’ times.

Taking a look back at the past week, Young dived again and set Man U on a route to a victory after Man […]

The underperformance of Arsenal: a graphic analysis

 

By Arvind

This is a subject that has intrigued me for a long time. When we talk about stupid players or a tactically clueless manager or a greedy board or a crap journalist or even corrupt refs…and point that to be THE reason Arsenal is underperforming…it really doesn’t show you the whole picture.

Now […]

An Untold landmark! Wild celebrations at Untold Towers!

Dear Tony,

I don’t know it if you realise it but this article is the 2.500th article that appears on Untold Arsenal. So I think this is the appropriate time to express my and may I say our gratitude for all that you have done in the last years for us here at Untold.

This summer’s signings: Javier Martinez

By Tony Attwood

I recently quoted the Daily Mirror in which they said we were signing Vertonghen. Not everyone screamed with laughter when I wrote this, so on the basis that the Mirror is really in tune with this sort of thing, here’s another of their tips: Athletic Bilbao’s Javier Martínez.

He is 23, he’s […]

Untold Media: How PGMOL (a shadowy referees organisation) determines the way refs are reported

Untold Media: How PGMOL determines how refs are reported.

Intro: Untold has for a long while been interested in the fact that the media seems to march as one over the issue of reporting refs. Where mistakes are made it is because of a lack of technology. And errors always “balance out in the end”. […]

What a waste of time

By Walter Broeckx

Oh the joy but also the sadness at times of being an Arsenal (and more in general) and/or football supporter and in my case a blog writer. Sometimes you can write the victory bulletins and sometimes you have to announce defeat. That is the way it goes. That is the way it […]

Untold preview: Arsenal host Wigan

By Phil Gregory

Another weekend, another refereeing calamity to marvel at prior to our very own match. Recently, the refereeing has been so bad that it almost seems like the officials have banded together and said “right lads, drop a clanger every game until they give us video tech”. Now, as Walter et al have […]

Why can’t Arsenal buy who the players they want, and keep the players they want?

By Tony Attwood

I mentioned in the last article I wrote that Arsenal are sometimes criticised for not getting the ideal player for each position. The argument from the AAA is always that if only Arsenal managed themselves better they would always be able to buy exactly whomsoever they required – and keep them as […]

PGMOL looks after the Premier League refs. But are they serious?

Thanks to a great link Phil sent to me we can have a further look at the PGMOL and the referees. The article itself can be found here http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/17668965 and it really is an interesting article where former world cup referee Clive Thomas is very critical about the standard of refereeing.

The problems facing Chelsea, Man C, Tott and Liverpool

By Tony Attwood

Chelsea has a problem. In fact, even if they win the Champions League this year they have a problem. The owner wants success now and does not like to hang around if he doesn’t get it. But the owner also backed the ideas of Uefa to bring in financial controls – […]

The weekend preview: Tots, Chelsea, Newcastle, Manchester…
