It appears that the Guiness International Cup featuring Milan, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Juventus and LA Galaxy is not going to be a one off event. Rupert Murdoch's TV companies are planning to run a new international competition for clubs, which they will broadcast not least because Murdoch as lost the right [.
We are so used to Arsenal summers being tales of doom and despair painted by the omni-watchful AAA as due entirely to Mr Wenger and the board, that it seems strange to watch the chaos elsewhere, while we seem to be sailing serenely through. We have no Flamini style departure (where he [.
By Tony Attwood . Corruption, according to the official media line, doesn't happen in British football, but it is rife most other places largely because they are full of foreign types. . Hence a considerable if passing interest has arisen in Fenerbahçe where more five arrests for corruption have been announced, including the club president [.
During the course of the morning of 3 June several UK newspapers changed their web sites to reflect an interview with Arsène Wenger. The Daily Telegraph piece is by Nick Pearce and runs with the headline
Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger hints at shock moves for Wayne Rooney and Cesc Fabregas
During last season we got used to three teams who were seemingly willing and able to outbid anyone for the player they wanted: Chelsea, Man C and PSG. Since two of those three didn't win the league in which they play they are expected to spend more and more this summer.
Don't get too excited the change in refereeing in the Premier League from next season is not the one we have been asking for (demanding even) in which we request the number of referees that PGMOL supplies to the Premier League is greatly increased. Such a move would reduce the [.
As you may have read Manchester City and the baseball team New York Yankees (who previously had a liaison with Manchester U) have agreed to buy a franchise into Major League Soccer, as the new club, to be known as New York City Football Club will be franchise number 20 in [.
By Tony Attwood . This close season there is an opportunity. An opportunity to buy. Not just because of the new money coming in but also because with virtually every other club losing their manager (Real Mad now confirmed to be the latest) there will be a huge merry-go-round this year. The stability at Arsenal [.
If there is a moment that we might one day eventually look back to, as being the time when we achieved a breakthrough in Untold's constant highlighting of referee problems in the Premier League, it could just be Arsenal v Wigan 14 May 2013.
If you keep a regular eye on the blog, TV, radio and newspaper headlines you may have noticed that there is a new game in town although perhaps game is the wrong word, because the perpetrators of it are hoping that it could tear Arsenal apart in September.
As we've mentioned on Untold before the issue has not been whether someone will take Uefa to a European court, but whether it would be a club claiming that Uefa has gone too far in laying down the code of practice, or another saying that Uefa has not gone far enough [...]
This site has covered the collapses of and problems at various clubs, since we first started out. Not because we want to say, "Nah nah nah nah nah" or words to that effect, but rather to point out that when the AAA call for change at the top of the club, [...]
They do things differently in Women's Football. Or do they?
Arsenal have just been knocked out of the Champions League, but have reached the FA Cup Final. Rather oddly Arsenal (the team that wins most everything in Women's Football in England) lie sixth in the league but then they have [.
According to various paper reports (Le Parisien is one example) the top men at PSG have been saying Arsene Wenger will definitely be coming to PSG this summer. Failing that he will come in 2014 when his current contract at Arsenal ends.
PSG however have been buying very big, and there [.
It is fairly common for the AAA to claim that Arsenal's directors and management are incompetent or greedy or both. But if it is incompetence you are looking for, it is there to be seen among many other clubs.
I have already written about Blackburn's case in which they managed to put [.
20 October 1990: a little bit of argy bargy was described by saliva dripping journalists as a "21 player brawl". Arsenal won 1–0 and went on a staggering run (losing just one match all season) winning the league for the second time in three seasons.
The odds that you can get on someone other than Barcelona or Real Mad getting the championship or runners' up slot in Spain must be huge, not just for next season, but the season after and the season after and...
With their tax advantages, state or local authority funding, and 100% of [.
As an experiment it was interesting, got the passions boiling, and provided for the sort of entertainment that took us back to the sort of games that used to feature in the Third Division North. Workington v Barrow springs to mind.
But I'm not sure that the normal approach of players [.
These days Arsenal ask readers of their web site to vote for their man of the match, and after the Norwich game they gave the honour to Aaron Ramsey. Which is quite amazing when you think how he was seen by the AAA just a few months ago.
There was a time when the dominant focus of this blog, before and after each Arsenal match, seemed to be injuries. They just piled up week after week, month after month. Often there were ten members of the first team squad out, and yet [.
The opportunity had knocked so loudly it practically hurt. With Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur not in Premier League action this weekend Arsenal knew that three points against struggling Norwich City would lift them above their Champions League rivals and ratchet up the pressure on them.
The trouble is, all these guys in this article were being talked about yesterday or the day before, but I was a bit busy so didn't put this together. Which means that in the way the transfer rumour market now works this is all old news and therefore won't happen until everyone [.
From the moment Uefa's Financial Fair Play rules were announced it was always clear that there would be an early test of the rules. It would be a situation so outrageous that even a dead man reading The Sun could spot it a mile off. A test that would define the entire [...]
I don't think anyone knows which journalist first called our last stadium "the Highbury library". But it became a name that could be used by away supporters, the disenchanted, and the lazy journalists to banter around. Not because it was true (were you there during the "49″?
