The way that things have been going for Arsenal in recent years, I have to wonder whether Arsene Wenger has been walking under ladders while breaking mirrors, because if the Gunners did not have regular bad luck then we would have no luck at all.
The latest recipient of the club’s rotten fortune, Tomas Rosicky, has been there before a few times but this time his latest bad news on the injury front could mean that his first appearance of the season as a sub in the disappointing defeat to Chelsea, could also be his final Arsenal appearance of the season. And if that turns out to be the case then it could be the last time we see our little Mozart in an Arsenal shirt.
At 35-years old and with his current contract due to run out in the summer, Rosicky is unlikely to get another deal with the Gunners and his hopes of making it a happy final year look to have been dashed as The Sun is reporting that the original prediction of six weeks on the sidelines has been revised to a few months as the injury is in fact a rupture of his thigh muscle.
Poor old Tomas will be desperately hoping that he can recover in time to make his Arsenal bow and gain some match fitness before the summer. If not he could miss a final international swansong as well with Czech Republic in the Euro 2016 tournament.
