You can support Arsenal or you can walk out. One of these is better for your mental health

By Tony Attwood

According to most press reports lots of “angry Arsenal fans left the stadium in protest while others stayed to chant their disdain for the team’s showing, wailing: “We want our Arsenal back.”

No one seems to have found any of the “lots of angry Arsenal supporteres” to interview in terms of how […]

It was a night oh oh what a night It was it really was such a night…

By Walter Broeckx

Sometimes you don’t believe what you see with your own eyes. That was after 36 minutes. Arsenal 4-0 down after what must have been the worst 36 minutes of an Arsenal team. The midfielders didn’t pressure the Reading players, the defenders didn’t attack the players or the ball. Reading went deservedly 1-0 […]

Arsenal v Reading – a wild guess at the team.

Trying to pick Arsenal’s League Cup teams is like trying to … well rather like trying to do something quite difficult.

Arsène Wenger let’s us know who is not playing…

Gervinho has an ankle problem and will be out for some time, but how long is not known. Szczesny is fit but not fit enough […]

How much money does one have to spend to guarantee constant success?

By Walter Broeckx

We should have spend the fucking money. Now if we look at the current Champions league this looks to be a bit strange.

Manchester United has spend a lot of money and for the moment it seems to work for them. Both in the league and in the CL. He who’s name […]

Arsenal v QPR The Catering Review

I’ll have a Tony Adams please, no gravy:Arsenal vs QPR (and Schalke) the catering review.

Saturday started well, a big fry up at the best cafe in Stratford (I know it was the best because it said so on the sign) before a gentle (and cultured) stroll around Bunhill Fields cemetery with the GF.

Malaga: 1984 revisited. Is this the way to win the Champions League?

In Qatar they build football stadiums. Lots of them, because they are going to have a jolly world cup there. . The stadia are open to the sky – a bit like the Emirates. All the people are under cover (although to avoid sunstroke rather than to avoid the freezing rain). But they are supposedly […]

Was it just inept or… no it can’t be…? Time wasting out of all control

By Walter Broeckx

Well this is a better day to be a Gooner. A narrow but fully deserved 1-0 win over a team that came for only thing: destroy whatever football is if possible. We have seen another exhibit of time wasting and bending the rules till it get ridiculous.

And all this with a […]

QPR at home. Billy the Dog discusses tactics with Dennis Bergkamp

By Dennis the Menace with Billy the Dog

On Tuesday we play Reading in the Diddly Widdly Cup. I know this because on the official Reading FC site (which is just about the most incomprehensible web site of any Premier League club) it tells me everything with ! at the end of each sentence!

FIFA Agents – from considered development to the trafficking of children

Editorial cock-up note:

We recently started to publish a three part series on Fifa registered agents. It is a topic that takes us to the very heart of the transfer market and the way it is working.

Unfortunately due to a clerical cock-up by someone (ie Tony) we published parts one and two, and […]

How the Guardian newspaper made a total mockery of the Arsenal AGM

By Tony Attwood

I was going to leave the AGM, and let it be. I was there, I watched and listened, and talked to fellow members of the club on the AISA Arsenal History Society stand, which we were granted by Arsenal.

So I’ve said my piece in an earlier article, but then I read […]

Arsenal AGM report: Wenger gives an interesting review

By Tony Attwood

Apart from apologising for yesterday’s defeat and dealing (as usual without notes) about the problems facing the club, as well as its successes and its future) this year Mr Wenger told the AGM the story of a meeting of top European managers who meet from time to time.

Much of the debate […]

Need for speed

By Walter Broeckx

Ah the life of a football supporter. Easy in the good days. A bit more difficult in the bad days. And we seem to hit a few bad days for the moment. There is no denying that.

From the game against Schalke and Norwich it is clear to see that without players […]

What do FIFA registered agents do (and do any own football clubs?)

What do FIFA registered agents do?

Part 3

Firstly let me start by stating that FIFA recognises that only 42% of registered agents work full time within the industry. The other 58% have yet or are unable to break in to this industry full time although FIFA qualified and registered to do so.

As of […]

Arsenal crowd beat up the referee – Tottenham keeper assaults fan

As we are about to play against a team whose last match involved some serious confrontation between rival fans and the police, I thought this a good moment to think about Arsenal, and the crowd behaviour at our games.

In fact Arsenal has the utterly dubious record of being the first ever league club to […]

Now that’s what I call a (reserve) team

Damian Martinez

Bacary Sagna, Sead Hajrovic, Ignasi Miquel, Jernade Meade

Emmanuel Frimpong, Jack Wilshere,

Thomas Eisfeld

Kristoffer Olsson, Nigel Neita, Chuba Akpom

 

That was yesterday’s team against Everton in the under 21 league. Jack played the whole game, had a hand in both […]

This is Arsenal, anything can happen

By Walter Broeckx

After the bad result on Saturday we get the same old comments from time to time on Untold and you can read them on other social network sites about Arsenal.

People blame Wenger for losing the game, for not having bought enough, for playing with the handbrake one, for every thing.

Now […]

Arsenal v Schalke: a riotous preview

By Tony Attwood

While Arsenal were losing to Norwich, Schalke beat Borussia Dortmund. 200 people and eight officers were injured (in Germany nor Norfolk). Water cannon were used to stop Schalke fans from dismantling a barrier they had taken offence before the start of the game.

Before the game both Dortmund and Schalke fans […]

Is “Kick it Out” ineffective in the face of the support of racism by Fifa, Uefa, the FA and the Premier League?

By Tony Attwood

If we want to combat racism just about the worst way to do it, I would have thought, is for a very rich man to get angry at the shirt worn or not worn by another very rich man. Ferdinand chose not to wear a Kick it Out shirt, and Ferguson […]
