Wenger's coat brings bad luck

By 1970's Gooner

I don't know what you think but every single time that Arsene Wenger wears that ugly, shapeless long coat we lose the game.

I get the jitters when he is pictured trying desperately to zip it up. His nervousness then shines through these manic attempts to get some cover and warmth. I then begin to lose any confidence I may have mastered before the game convincing myself that the three points are in the bag.

I am sure the same feelings are transmitted to the players and they get even more nervous amongst themselves resulting in just the outcome they are trying to prevent.

What I am saying here is not a joke. When I used to play (in my own level) we had a coach who was always nervous before an important game. This would osmosisize through to us and would inevitably result in a below par performance.

So advice to Mr Wenger:

1.Get a decent coat to wear on the dug out.
2. And learn how to zip it up BEFORE you go out on the pitch.
