Like them both but one question. Why the f**k are we still trying to get people to visit Rwanda FFS?!
I think it is something to do with the Rwanda Tourist Board giving wiggy a shedload of wonga to promote it. :?

I think it will be the first time in a while that I will buy both shirts on launch. I usually buy the home shirt and then catch the away or 3rd kit when it goes on sale but, goddamn, both shirts are beautiful to say the least. Don't judge if I wear the Banana 2.0 on my outings, fakin classy.

I haven't bought myself a jersey in years (too old at 50 ? ), but I will be buying myself both of those beauties for sure :barscarf: :barscarf:

3rd kit also looks impressive to be fair - not as nice as the other 2, but then the 3rd kits never are

Have to agree. It makes it look tacky.

Also it might be a trick of the light but old Laca looks like he needs to get off the cheeseburgers in that photo! :lol: :wink:

All three shirts look awesome. Red/white, home , yellow/blue away and blue/yellow third is just what The Arsenal is all about.

I have no idea when these kits will be released....mid July would be my best guess.

The Puma contract runs until June 30th (another masterstroke by that serial fuckwit Ivan :roll: ) so the club will have to spend the next 20 days desperately pretending we are going to play bare chested next season. There won't be a single mention of Adidas or next season's kits. Bizarre.

If you go on to Arsenal.com right now you cannot buy a replica jersey from the online store. Nothing. What a way to run a business. I doubt there's a single other club in the world where that is the case. I don't think July 1st just rolls around and suddenly the kits go on sale, there will have to be the usual marketing blurb and official launch to much fanfare happen first.

It's also incredible that you still will not find a single mention of the Adidas announcement on the official website in the news section (or anywhere else for that matter). The two line tweet from last last year has been the only time the club have acknowledged it, fuck knows what sort of contract Puma were given that has basically rendered the club mute on the subject.

Anyway, enjoy the paralysis of the next 20 days and we'll see what happens next month.

I stand to be corrected on this of course, but I would assume that the club gets a set amount in the contract, and only make extra money if the shirt is bought through the club (online or in club shop). IF I am right, buying the shirt from jd sports, or sports direct, or any local sports store, wont net wiggy any extra money and we can feel free to buy as many as we want 8) Of course that is short-term thinking, cos if adidas has record sales of the jersies during this deal, wiggy will demand a bigger contract next time around and that is where he will make his jingles
