Forming a breakway club?

As we're unlikely to see terraces again at football, this is the virtual equivalent where you can chat to your hearts content about all football matters and, obviously, Arsenal in particular. This forum encourages all Gooners to visit and contribute so please keep it respectful, clean and topical.

More importantly, it's great that the OP managed to get TWO old chocolate biscuit names in the thread title......Breakaway and Club!! He could have gone one step further though and said forming a BLUE RIBAND BREAKAWAY CLUB!! 8) :barscarf: :barscarf:

No, because it's not going on sale. It's a one off shirt made for the club.

Progress is progress ; new ground, location, badge, motto etc ; get over it, it's the way the world works.

'But they are selling a Nike shirt for £100!'

No they ain't.

Never let facts get in the way of getting another dig in against the club.

This thread is a load of bollocks.

Tbh I've never gotten over losing the iconic crest with proper cannon and gothic font and motto and probably never will. The fact they replaced it with some marketing arsehole's simplified cartoon just makes it worse for me.

BUT;

It's still Arsenal. And I support Arsenal. Not Arsenal-Lite or Kind-of-Arsenal or some breakaway club by a few disgruntled fans. Fuck that. My associaton is as much about our history and our tradition as it is about the team or club that I watch now, it's the whole, not just elements of it.

Arsenal for life. 8)

my apologies - they are not actually selling the shirt for a 100 quid each, no.

they are selling a photo of the shirt for a 100 quid each :

just because you go and watch a lower league team, wouldn't mean you stop supporting The Arsenal.

it would just mean not spending money on them...

Yeah, and that is a fair point. I suppose another thing for me is I just wouldn't have the time or energy to commit emotionally enough to another team to make me want to go regularly... :|

I think that is a good idea. A new club might go for Giles Garibaldi, oops sorry, Grimandi, as chief scout or manager. It would not be Rich, Tea cups would fly in the dressing room if we were losing.
Would we play in the same Kit? Cat "A" games would not really exist would they?
The profit margin would be Wafer thin, the revenue less than United, and the crowd would hardly Hob Nob with the great and good, but the atmosphere would be Nice and if some Israeli fans would visit from Jaffa, cakes could be served to entertain them.

Interesting Topic lads but this thread is becoming a bit of a Marathon now which is Nuts. I think it would cause more than a Ripple if we formed a Breakaway Club. The idea is just a bit Flake-y for my liking though
