Have Arsenal been cursed?

I honestly cannot remember the last time Arsenal had a fully fit starting eleven. I've heard rumours it was in the 1980's when Micheal Jackson released Thriller.

Seriously though, it is like some sick joke and Arsenal have been cursed by some "injury witch" or something. We are lighter at the back than a Coors Light and the situation is looking grim. One more injury to a defender and we may have to call for a state emergency.

It pisses me off because its the most important time of the season, Arsenal are flying, and BANG! More injuries.

If the injurys in defence continue then it maybe time for Arsene Wenger to go back to the 1950's. I'm sure they played a 2-3-5 formation in those days didn't they? Even more total attacking football from Arsenal of course!

Despite our curse the good thing is because we are winning the confidence is flowing through the veins of the squad. The winning habit is spreading its wings so anyone coming into the side is helped by coming into a winning side. Know what I mean?

And we need that winning habit. This is a week defining week for the campaign. I'd argue it's more important than eating. Beat Villarreal, beat Chelsea, and it maybe time to bring out the old silver polish again.

Anyway, I'm off to find the bitch of a witch who put that injury curse on Arsenal. Have a good Easter and don't eat too much chocolate. Drink beer instead.

Keep it Goonerish.............

I just hope Djourou isnt as badly injured as it looked. I think we can cop without Almunia and Clichy, but we definitely need JD back sharpish.

We have been well effin done by injuries. I just hope we aint saying.. "Oh, if it werent for the injuries we'd have won this, that, yadda yadda" At the end of the season.

We gotta keep it positive - it was feeling cursed last year after the Birmingham game that cost us the title. Wenger has banned talk of fatigue, we're on a great run, and if we keep positive then great things are ahead of us.

And... what the f*ck is it with the dick comments? And there are blogs written by experts now? Really???

Its half-term at the moment. Some kids (not all!) are going hyper on lemonade

Wrighty said...

I'd love to see Wenger re-call Big Phil back... He wouldn't be cuptied for the CL, would he?

Spike said...

Couldnt happen Wrighty. CL squads had to be named ages ago, no chance of Phil coming back fella.

hus phil?

marcmm03 said...

Anon 14:38, fyi that Big Phil they refers to is Senderos. Another injuries to the back. We are really light at the back now. I know song can play at the CB, but he is more effective playing at the CM. Hopefully JD back in 2 weeks time. Afraid that Sylvestre might fget injured as well as he just came back from injuries also.

Some injuries quite obviously look bad, some others I'm not so sure. If Arshavin can get a few stitches and still play why can't the others who have little niggles be a little more to tougher?

Anonymous said...

true, arshavin is a right tough cookie aint he?

Marv Tha' Gooner! said...

Dont forget ladies, Song can play centre back too....

marcmm03 said...

Anon 15:52, maybe you should learn more about injuries to human. Injuries like cut with stitches doesn't make people unable to play. But injuries involving your muscle & tendon, that will rule out people from playing. You can run all day even you have 7 stitches at your leg. But can you run if you have cramp our muscle strain? That's why, arshavin can play with stitches will rvp cannot play with slight groin injuries. You should try to learn more on this thing.

lp said...

Wrighty, despite the injury we had to our defence i think the team can still winning.
as long as our key player, like RVP, Cesc, Nasri, Arsh and Walcott to name a few not to get injured for the rest of the season we should be ok.

Anonymous said...

Hopefully JD will be back soon. However, until he is back, we should play like this

Eboue, Toure, Silvestre, Sagna

Sagna has been brilliant of late, so tight on his man. Eboue is of course an excellent cover for RB and I think could excel in the big games left in the season. Gibbs has great potential but in CL and FA Cup Semi-final you cant beat experience and class.
Also a don't believe Song should be deployed as a CB. He has improved out of sight in the last two months, and I fear that any change in position may halt that progress.

First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which
I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious to find out
how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!

I hardly drop responses, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Have Arsenal been cursed?".
And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Could it be simply me or does it look like some of the remarks come across
as if they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And,
if you are posting on additional social sites, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
