Untold Videos

Our videos explore some of these issues in depth – do take a look

 

By Tony Attwood

In the modern blogging world, exploring the issue of cause and effect is sometimes known as moaning – and “moaning” of course is a pejorative word. No one likes a moaner.

So what […]

What exactly do we need in order to win the League again?

By Tony Attwood

When Arsenal moved to the new Arsenal Stadium and increased their capacity from around 38,000 to over 60,000 they also doubled their match day revenue overnight. And it has continued to rise thereafter.

But of course the stadium had to be paid for, and that drain on the club’s finances was managed […]

“Mikel Arteta’s rebuilding job has barely scratched the surface”

by Tony Attwood

That headline is taken from an article in the Guardian and I suspect that after last night quite a few people might agree with that.

Although the situation takes on a somewhat surreal notion when one looks at other headlines and finds this one from The Hard Tackle.

“8/10 Mustafi the sole […]

By Bulldog Drummond

Now here is something very new. It is not directly relevant to the team for tonight’s game, so if you want that just scroll down a bit, but it is relevant to the topic of what blogs and websites are up to (which is something Untold likes to keep an eye on).

How the history and effect of VAR is being re-written to mislead us all

by Tony Attwood

The essence of the always-famous novel “1984” by George Orwell, published in 1948 which predicted the dystopian world to come, is that history can be changed, re-written, re-told, manipulated, re-imagined by the powerful in order to keep the thoughts of the proles in order.

George Orwell was not a great […]

How Arteta can restore Arsenal to greatness

By Bulldog Drummond

Pundits presenting themselves as people who know, getting it wrong, offering no apology, and then doing it again is what football journalism is made of. Like the wholesale prediction for yesterday’s game that Saka would start the match. Totally wrong prediction; no one seems to have apologised.

Which is why Untold likes […]

The total failure of VAR, yellow cards and the team: Arsenal v Everton

By Bulldog Drummond

One of the key factors of the weekend is the issue of yellow cards, in the Chelsea 2 Tottenham 1 game. The BBC website says, “Giovani lo Celso should have been sent off for a dreadful second-half challenge on Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

What exactly do Arsenal have to sort out, to get into the top six?

By Tony Attwood

These last few years have seen the implementation of the policy of the anti-Wengerians; get rid of Wenger and spend a lot of money on players was the battle cry of most of them, as far as I could understand it.

As a result of the Board following their demands, the old […]

Olympiakos v Arsenal in the Europa: a history of corruption; what can we expect

by Tony Attwood

Olympiakos v Arsenal is the tie drawn for us in the round of the last 32 in the Europa League in 2020. And of course, as ever, if we think of Olympiakos and indeed Greek football, we think of corruption, so I thought I would try and update the occasional articles we’ve […]
