Petr Cech might be a little obsessed with the No. 33

If you’ve seen the 2007 film The Number 23, starring Jim Carrey, then you know what a fixation on a single number can do to a person. Sadly, it appears Petr Cech’s move to Arsenal has set him down this path.

Since Wojciech Szczesny is holding onto the Arsenal No. 1 shirt with the iron grip of a toddler on a lollipop, the former Chelsea goalkeeper decided to avoid an immediate confrontation and settled on a different shirt number. One that seems to hold a prominent place in his thoughts right now…

If he concedes a goal in the 33rd minute of a match, he might freak out.

    Even more spooky would be him (#33) scoring an own goal as his 33rd conceded goal on the 33rd minute of the 33rd match day.
