Do you fancy writing for Untold?   Here are the guidelines.  


And beyond football… the team that works on Untold Arsenal also writes and maintains these sites


Direct marketing …

Staying fit, staying healthy…

  • Jiving - a review of the jive clubs of the UK (a new site, but it is growing day by day).  The best way to stay fit physically and mentally.
  • The weight loss programme: The only guaranteed way to get fit

And also…

  • Untold Dylan - the music, the lyrics, the meaning
  • Tony Attwood’s own personal website.   Just in case you are interested in what Untold’s publisher actually does.  And did.


If you fancy writing a comment for the first time, please note that your first comment will be held in moderation until we get back from the pub.  Also, if you comment appears to be copied from another site, has nothing to do with the original article, is abusive against another writer personally (as opposed to joining in the debate with reasoned points), comes from an invalid email address, or comes from a computer which appears to be used by one person under different names, we might well not publish it.   Dictatorial yes, but some of us are trying to have a bit of a chat here, and those are the tactics used by others (probably supporters of other clubs, but you never know) who seek to disrupt our fun.

History, copyright etc etc

Untold Arsenal was set up by Tony Attwood in February 2008 as a mechanism for countering the eternally negative comments of other bloggers.

Articles are written by those who feel drawn to the site’s position vis a vis Arsenal FC, and at the moment the central team is Tony, and Walter Broeckx.

The site is owned by Websites and Blogs Ltd., Hamilton House, Earlstrees Ct., Earlstrees Rd., Corby, Northants NN17 4HH.  You can phone Tony on 01536 399 013, during office hours.
