Ignoring facts and turning a blind eye to further an agenda

Ignoring facts and turning a blind eye to further an agenda

Let it be known that I am writing this while I am still seething from the extreme injustice that we faced yesterday. It has happened far too often for my liking and still nothing has being done about it. You would have thought […]

Money laundering, tax evasion: we can’t rely on a media that just wants to tell us what to think

By Tony Attwood

Once upon a time the mainstream media was there to tell us some news. In football terms that meant giving the football results and having a factual run-down of the match.

Now we don’t need that because we have the internet, so instead the mainstream aims to hold its position by telling […]

Costa didn’t commit a single foul.

“He can do what he wants and he stays on. Everyone else that responds to him has to be sent off. It’s unacceptable. But he always gets away with it. He will do the same again next week, and the week after, and he always gets away with it….

PGMO 2 Arsenal 0: why on earth should we even bother to play the matches?

By Tony Attwood

The season before last I watched a Chelsea shot going away from the goal, and then be handballed. The referee sent a player off, which is the wrong punishment because the punishment for deliberate handball which does not prevent a goal is a yellow card.

But worse, his lack of vision of […]

Dean 2 Arsenal 0: Useless, bent, both or even more? 3 more points robbed as predicted

By Walter Broeckx

Chelsea with an early shot but Cech saved. Then Arsenal with the most attacking in the first minutes. Walcott just couldn’t get round Begovic to get an angle to shoot. A few shots from distance but no real opening chances. Chelsea leaning backwards most of the time trying to play the counter […]

Which player who will play in Chelsea v Arsenal has scored 11 goals in his last 11 league starts?

by Bulldog Drummond

Jose Mourinho, hero of the aaa, said recently,”Normally when bad results happen the first thing that comes into your laptops, iPads and pens is to find a dramatic story: ‘Somebody punch somebody in the dressing room’, ‘The manager doesn’t want to speak with this guy’.

“‘Diego Costa fought with John Terry […]

PGMO admit there is a problem, but they are still hiding the scale of the problem.

By Walter Broeckx

While I was lying around on the beaches of South France Mike Riley took this opportunity to release a few numbers. I must admit I had to wait a while before I could react to them but now being back I found the time to see how the PGMO numbers look compared […]

A disappointing night, but plenty more to play for.

A disappointing night

by Tim Charlesworth

Two days ago, I eyed a tricky looking set of upcoming features and wrote an article for Untold about it.

My article tried to focus on the really important things to look out for, other than the obvious ones of whether we scored goals, and whether the opposition did. […]

What is wrong with football? What is wrong with football supporters?

By Blacksheep

As Tony and I made our way back from the recent AISA agm we started to discuss some of the issues raised by the meeting and this led into a rather more wide ranging debate about the state of modern football. I have to admit that I have a tendency to ‘go off […]

A bad day but not just from our players

By Walter Broeckx

I couldn’t do my usual match report form for this match and will not be able to do so for the next matches because of other obligations. But I did see the match live on a stream not of the greatest quality and with a few times it going down so I […]

Campaign to fight against State Aid for WHU stadium wins a victory

By Tony Attwood

On 6 August Untold ran quite a long article about the way the new West Ham stadium is being financed with the club paying little towards the transformation of the ground into a football stadium, and the state financing the building costs, and the day to day running of the stadium.

Exclusive, read all about it – Arsenal in crisis

By Proudkev

Media reporting has always been short on facts and agenda driven but since the advent of the Internet it has gone from bad to worse. It seems anyone can write an online article; all you have to do is have something negative to […]

Think for yourself: the most radical and dangerous idea in football. Here’s to the counter revolution.

By Tony Attwood

That is a fair point which was made to me last week, and one I fully accept. But there is a contrary argument which says exposing the tricks of the media is utterly about football.
