‘Kardashian curse’ blamed for Arsenal title collapse as fans tell Kim ‘never come to the Emirates again’
ARSENAL’S botched title bid has been blamed on the “Kardashian Curse”.
The Gunners were eight points clear as recently as March, before Kim Kardashian came to watch a game.

The reality TV superstar visited the Emirates with son Saint for their Europa League clash with Sporting Lisbon.
Not only did Arsenal crash out of the competition that night, but their Premier League form soon cratered.
Since that night, the Gunners have won four, drawn three and lost three – with City winning the league with three games to spare.
Their 1-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest last night proved to be the final straw.
After CBS Sports pointed out Arsenal’s record since Kardashian’s appearance at the Emirates, one fan wrote on Twitter: “True curse.”
While a second tweeted: “Big curse…”
Another added: “Kim K statue at the Etihad loading….”
But a further Twitter user scathingly wrote of those trying to blame Kim: “Folks will blame everything but Mikel Arteta.”

Kardashian also visited PSG with Saint, witnessing them lose their first home Ligue 1 games in 715 days as they fell 2-0 to Rennes.
When Kim, 42, visited Arsenal – fans at the time were concerned.
One wrote: “Tell her to not ever come watch our game again.”
Another wrote: “The Kardashian curse strikes again. Ban her from the stadium!”
A third added: “Bad luck entered the Emirates Stadium.”
