That blue shirt looks nice and is probably the one that looks best if you wear it with jeans ... but I cannot think of a fixture where we will actually need this kit. Not unless we draw Melchester Rovers away in the FA Cup anyway :D

It annoyed me yesterday seeing us wear yellow at Newcastle when we should have worn red. Save wearing the yellow for when we play teams in red (or maybe teams with white shorts) because this is classic Arsenal and the contrast in colours is what makes it so good. To make things worse, I can see us turning up at Anfield and OT and wearing blue :roll:

Adidas have done us proud with all three kits but the people who make the decisions about what kit we wear are too often still clueless :roll:
:banghead:

Sorry to quote myself but I couldnt be bothered to type it out again! The writing was on the wall when we wore yellow at Newcastle :banghead:

It really fucks me off when teams wear the wrong kits. I expect many of the people who decide are clueless but there is probably a lot of truth in what OBG says too!

Why are we not wearing the yellow shirts at Anfield ?
Huh? Really? We're not? That's just shit. Wearing the Yellow up there has HUGE historical significance obviously. This is utter shitness from the club. :roll:




Who would be responsible for making that decision ?? :?
Personally I too think it is the marketing cùnts that make these decisions or at least influence whoever makes the final call.

This falls under the "Modern football bol**cks" heading.

Pretty sure the kit manufacturers contractually oblige clubs to wear 2nd and 3rd kits a minimum number of times each season so planning ahead I bet the 3rd kit could only be used on a limited occaisions this season, Anfield being one.

So its no longer that you change from home kit if there is a clash, default for away games is to change to 2nd or 3rd and only red and white when either of these clash.

I hate it.

No coincidence that it’s also the first away match since the later than other two kit launch.

It’s a pure out-and-out marketing ploy, to have it in a high profile match to promote it worldwide. :cussing:

Should have worn yellow

That is a nice shade of blue though. Stick a chicken balancing on a basketball on it and you've really got something :roll:

Agree with both of you. I hate this modern trend too and its definitely about making more money!

We've gone from having 2 kits that changed every 2 or 3 seasons to 3 kits that change every season.

3rd kits are a rip-off. I know you cant actually get ripped off if you don't buy them but you still have to watch your team and other teams playing in the wrong colours :banghead:

I noticed Chelsea wore white away at Norwich yesterday even though their blue doesnt clash ... we've even worn blue ourselves away at Norwich in the past which is f-king ridiculous :roll:

Have to say that although I like the photos I had seen of this blue kit, actually watching us wearing it in a game, I didnt like it at all.

Admittedly I was already irritated that we weren't wearing yellow but its also far too much like something the scum would wear! We do not even need a blue kit.
