Lottery selection curse strikes rivals Arsenal...

The curse at work

United fans can sit back tonight and reflect on another fairly good day in the Premiership as rivals Arsenal dropped yet more points in the 2-2 draw with Portsmouth at the Emirates Stadium.

Apart from what turned out to be a very exciting second half performance by the home side and another stunning goal by Pompey's Matt Taylor, the main talking point post match surrounded Arsene Wenger who appears to have been struck down by the dreaded lottery selection curse, common symptons of which include blurd vision and lack of clarity of thought. Alex Ferguson has been struck by the curse more often than most - Fergie was struck down most recently against FC Copenhagen in the Champions League.

Today Wenger gave Jeremie Aliadiere his first league start of the season, with Adebayor and Theo Walcott dropping to the bench from the midweek win at Wigan. After going two goals down Wenger's vision returned to normal as Adebayor and Theo Walcott returned to save a point and Wenger's embarrassment in a stunning comeback.
