Arsenal Message Board
Read this in a news paper kind of funny, hope this turns around for the game 2 matches these players face.
Arsenal are a Euro 2012 jinx
Gunner Wojciech Szczesny gave away a cheap goal, a cheap penalty and was sent off. Meanwhile, his Arsenal team-mate and Poland back-up 'keeper Lukasz Fabianski didn't even make it to the tournament, missing out on his chance to step up after suffering an eve of tournament injury. Tomas Rosicky didn't get a kick as the Czechs were thrashed by Russia, who were inspired by Arsenal reject Andrey Arshavin. Then there was Premier League top scorer Robin Van Persie, who failed in front of goal as Nicklas Bendtner's Denmark shocked Holland. Lukas Podolski's main contribution to Germany was a free-kick ballooned over the bar, while Per Mertesacker didn't even start. So far, the Gunners' main success at the Euros has been the Ox, who gave an assured, if unspectacular performance after being surprisingly picked by Roy Hodgson. Even then, Oxlade-Chamberlain's inclusion served to highlight how disappointing Theo Walcott has been, to the point where his inexperienced 18-year-old club mate is now a more viable option for England.
