Another North London Derby – Another win – Another 5-2 – What more do you want?

By Walter Broeckx

I’m a typing this some 20 minutes after the end of the game. I have spend the last 20 minutes of my life jumping up and down in my entire house. From the top floor to the bottom floor and if I would have a cellar I would have gone there to […]

Arsenal v Tottenham. Can my heart take the strain?

By William Le Dog McGraw

So we now play the neighbours and of course we have players who are doubtful…

Arteta has hurt his hip, Chamberlain has hurt his hip, Giroud has a possible hamstring, Ramsey has the groin strain, Sagna might not want to have his leg broken again, and Walcott has a buttock […]

New break even rules for Premier League clubs for NEXT season!!!!!

By Tony Attwood

We’ve been debating the way the Premier League has allowed clubs to be run by benefactors for years – or so it seems. And we’ve been debating what might be done about it.

The fact that something might be done, after all this time, seems almost too unlikely to be true. […]

Untold Twutters – Just some loose thoughts on football and Arsenal in general – have a look

By Remak Kwen

A bitter sweet football news round-up from around the globe and the PL.

– Van Persie is out with an injury. The Dutch traitor told Dutch coach Van Gaal that he has a thigh injury. Well that is something new. For the first time in 9 seasons Van Persie got an injury […]

Black scarf movement. Are they the fans voice of red and white holdings?

Black scarf movement. Are they the fans’ voice of red and white holdings?

By Cameron Wolfe

Here’s a statement from the BSM:

—–

We are calling for a gathering of BSM members and supporters on 1 December, before the Swansea match, to join us on a walk to ‘Bear Roundabout’ outside The Armoury.

The objectives […]

Maybe we need a new (old) formation. A return to Chapman?

By Tony Attwood

In the run up to the last match Billy the Dog wrote a piece in which he suggested we play a forward line in which the players adopt a quantum approach, during which, like sub-atomic particles, they could be in several positions at once.

This got me thinking – as I understand […]

Tottenham staff spied on Olympic officials – new allegations

By Tony Attwood

The issue of the Olympic stadium is one of the most embarrassing for the government, and one of the most difficult to resolve.

In the build up to the Olympics we were encouraged to snigger at Greece in particular for its failure to find much use for the facilities it built […]

Wenger: the ultimate gambler.

By Tony Attwood

My French is far fr0m perfect but I get by, and I was reminded of a word I particularly got to know when a newspaper recently quoted Thierry Henry’s use of “caviar” – meaning the perfect pass which puts the striker through. The number 10 or the attacking midfield player has put […]

Entertaining, heartbreaking, joy and tears. Just as real life…

By Walter Broeckx

Looking back one last time to last weekend…

Haven’t seen anything since coming home after being awake for 23 hours to see Arsenal play in a game. The longest trip ever made by the Arsenal Benelux that I know.

Let me start with the bad things: we didn’t win. We should have […]

In the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. How did the fans air their views?

 

The internet gives fans the chance to instantly vent.

By Cameron Wolfe.

I well aware of the irony of writing on a blog and talking about not being able too. In my own defence it came from reading so many negative comments. Even here on UA. It crossed my mind that we’re very lucky […]

More grey, less black and white please

By Walter Broeckx

As we have the luck of having a real life long Gooner amongst our readers he can bring some perspective on the day. He can point at events even before WW2, a time we only have seen in books, films and on TV. I always like his comments who are something to […]

Third party ownership. FIFA Agents part 4

Third party ownership. FIFA Agents part 4

“No club should enter into a contract which enables any other part to that contract or any third party to acquire the ability to influence in employment and transfer-related matters its independence, its policies or the performance of its teams”. (FIFA)

This seems a very simple rule to […]

For the first time in four years I don’t know what to say

By Tony Attwood

It wasn’t just that we threw away a game we had sorted. It wasn’t the fact that we could have won it with the last kick of the match. It was just that that special factor that gets you to win unwinnable matches wasn’t there.

We have had it for so many […]

Arsenal use sub-atomic physics to bemuse Fulham and exert strangeness and charm.

By Billy the Dog MrGraw

Bit of a mucky old week. Dennis Bergkamp has not been attending his allotment properly in Enfield, pleading special causes in relations to Ajax, which I told him was a cleaning powder and not a football team. I have to say Dennis’ elbow is rather sharp on the nose.

But […]

What would make me stop supporting Arsenal?

By Tony Attwood

In the discussion columns this week there was a question to me, along the lines, “What happens to Untold Arsenal, when Mr Wenger retires or resigns or is kicked out?”

And linked to it was the secondary question, what happens to me, as an Arsenal supporter?

Arsenal, as I have said so […]

Ghost transfers and the Transfer Matching System.

(TMS) The Transfer Matching System.

Adam Brogden

In 2009 a new system was introduced by FIFA to regulate the migratory movements of footballers from one country to another or rather from one association to another. All associations have received training on this new system and have implemented it, over 5’000 clubs and 208 associations. It […]

Tottenham’s own anti-Semitic chants. Illegal, or just a defence against something far worse?

By Tony Attwood

I am not one of those people who believe that Tottenham Hotspur is somehow an evil institution whose supporters are seriously demented. My view has always been, we support who we support generallyby chance, in my case because both my parents, and both sets of grandparents supported Arsenal. I had no choice. […]

Why is it really such a bad season so far?

Why is it really such a bad season so far?

By Cameron Wolfe

We’re currently seventh in the EPl. Sitting on 15 points. So at least we’re still in the top half and we’ve only played ten games. Won four, drawn four, lost three. We’ve only lost one more than Manure. Arguably our worst result […]

Has the cure caused a new problem?

By Walter Broeckx

If you go back one season we can all remember how the shouts was: we concede too many goals. We let in 47 goals. 7 teams did better than Arsenal. Shame on Arsenal. Shame on Wenger. We can never win anything like that. Something had to be done about it.

But on […]

Arsenal – Schalke04: 2-2, Borrusia Dortmund – Schalke04: 4-0

By Walter Broeckx

After having the nearby neighbours of Dortmund in our CL group last season we this time had Schalke 04 in the group. So a good moment to compare the two teams in my first review of this game that I visited today.

First of all if I have to look at the […]

Tonight’s game, tonight’s moan, Mr Wenger replies, the teams…

By Tony Attwood

There is so much vitriol pouring out against the club that I almost wonder if it is worth writing anything more today. The attackers are out, attacking the club, with only a few people bothering to do any analysis to back up their assertions.

But maybe we should just establish one or […]

“You don’t know what you’re doing…”

By Phil Gregory

Nope not Arsene Wenger, but Matt Law who is apparently the Chief Football Writer at the Mirror and recently penned a bit of a hatchet job on Wenger.

Thanks to the wonders of the web, I had the dubious pleasure of reading his critique (you wouldn’t catch me dead reading the Mirror) […]

Rolling grass, beer, roofs and the Würfel. Travelling to tonight’s game

By Walter Broeckx

By the time you read this I will be on my way. On my way to Gelsenkirchen. For the 4th game in our Champions League group.

It is not the first time I will visit the ground there. Some 6 or 7 years ago when I was on holiday in Germany I […]

Errors, mistakes and details and yet…

By Walter Broeckx

When you go to United the last thing you want to do is to concede a quick opening goal. I think I can even imagine Wenger saying before kick off: don’t make a silly mistake. Well it took us only 2,5 minutes to make one.

After uttering a lot of swearwords against […]
