Is Arsenal No 9 Cursed….? by wozasport: 9:57am On May 23
Looking at history in Arsenal Football Club you would realize the greatest Arsenal strikers chose a different shirt number as for Thierry Henry it was 14 and Denis Bergkamp chose number 10. Both players were offered the No 9 jersey but snubbed it and maybe its proofs the mythical thinking under the iconic jersey.Over the past years the club has failed to field a great striker in the iconic shirt. In defense the club can only boast of only two players to use the iconic shirt with them being Nicolas Anelka and Jose Antonio Reyes. Even though Alan Smith wore it frequently it was before permanent numbers were a thing and neither was Paul Merson a striker.
Past holders of the jersey.
Davor Suker (1999-2000)
After the 1998 world cup Suker won the world cup golden boots with six goals in the tournament.

For a so called elite team whose last title was won over 16 years ago, don't you think the entire team is cursed?



Stop scapegoating whoever is unfortunate to be wearing the No.9 jersey.

You think any self respecting elite English team starts the season with the FA Cup as a priority?


Well, when failure becomes habit, any success looks like a moon landing.



Nonsense and FA Cup!
