    From the curse of Bela Guttmann leading to Benfica's misery in the European Cup / Champions League, to the idea that every time former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey scores a goal, it can have fairly damning consequences, HITC Sevens takes a look at some of the best known curses in world football.

02:12 Correction: Bella Guttman only won 1 European Cup with Eusébio in the team. He was not part of the squad that won the 1961 edition, only arriving from Mozambique at the start of the following season.

"I doubt anyone takes the idea of sorcery and curses seriously..." Have you talked with the average person? Especially sports fans? Superstition is no more real than curses. There are people who believe where they sit/stand/watch their favorite club play affects how well they play.

If anyone wants to see the tv show where said "film crew" went to Zimbabwe to pay the witch doctor - it's called "John Safran vs God" and it's a show where an aussie orthodox Jewish guy "road tests" several different religions... I thought it pretty hilarious and it's definitely worth a watch

I love this channel and all the unique topics you come up with, but for a channel that's *for the people* it seemed in this video that you were very quick to assert your own view and dismiss others as nonsense. To billions of people around the globe and thousands that watch this channel, the logic and science you speak of cannot exist without the existence of some sort of theistic force. *For the people* should be inclusive to all people, no matter their faith or superstitious beliefs, and that can be done without imposing one's negativity towards another's beliefs. 🙂 Speaking as someone who doesn't believe I'm any of these curses.
