Is the Curse of Arsenal’s Number 9 set to continue?

Has the curse taken another victim? He was supposed to be the antidote He was supposed to shake the disease But I fear, he has succumbed to the same fate as many in his position before Ever since Smudger adorned the shirt in the early 90’s, many have tried to undertake the duties meeting the […]
