15/16: Bayern Munich 5-1 Arsenal - Per Mertesacker

Some Arsenal fans are certain why the Gunners lost to Bayern Munich Wednesday Night. They claim it’s not because the Germans performed brilliantly on the pitch, neither is it because Arsenal’s gameplay was lacking. On the contrary, they blame the loss on their godforsaken third kit!

Punters who made free bets weeks before the game were angry that Arsenal chose to make their players wear the cursed Kit. The cup kit debuted at Hillsborough, the same game that saw the league leaders lose to Sheffield United 3-0 in the Carling Cup.

After the Wednesday night thrashing by Bayern Munich, Arsenal’s game play record in their new kit stands at; played 2, lost 2, scored 1 and conceded 8. The history has seen Arsenal fans suggest that they do not want to hear of or see the kit ever again!

Arsenal On the Periphery

Before Wednesday’s match got underway, both Bayern Munich and Arsenal fans had a date with a bookmaker. Only a few perhaps one placed the odds of a 5-1 victory favouring the Germans. Well, Arsenal fans were heartbroken when their team was hammered that many goals at the full time.

The Gunners felt the wrath of the Germans as Muller scored twice, while Robben, Lewandowski and Alaba, each netted a goal. A punter that tried their luck on free bets that Arsenal would steal one goal were not disappointed.

Giroud managed to net in a consolation goal for the Gunners thanks to a high overhead kick. The outcome of the match puts Arsenal in a precarious position. The English team needs to bag in their next two games.

The team is meeting Olympiakos, and they need to net in two goals and also pray that Bayern Munich defeats Olympiakos for them to qualify. Punters who love a thrill are liaising with a bookmaker favouring Arsenal beating the Greek team and also that the Germans will defeat the Greek team.

Arsene Wenger’s Sentiments

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger wants his boys to forget quickly the Wednesday night loss and instead focus on their next match on Saturday Night. The Gunners will be part of the North London Derby as they play rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsene Wenger’s woes are not yet over as he is desperately trying to get the likes of Koscielny and Bellerin back to the starting XI. The players are out on injuries and Wenger is looking for ways to strengthen his defence before they meet with Tottenham Hotspur.

Punters are however protesting that the kit is the reason Arsenal are on a losing streak and want Wenger to ditch the new kit. The pressure from inside and outside the club is taking a toll on the legendary manager.

Arsenal fans remind Wenger that the Gunners have played at Olympiakos on away in three matches and have lost all three. The new kit is cursed and he should consider ditching it before he leads his team to Athens.
