Adidas New Kit Sponsor (NSFW)

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.

Rodders will probably view this as blasphemous I know, but the adidas jackets really don't do it for me - everytime I look at them I see conehead Houston standing on the sideline :lol:
The sweatshirt is ok though 8)
Me too! :lol:

It gives me a flashback to the victims game at Highbury just after GG "left" the club. Dog Fowler scored a late winner on a miserable night in the NB that was only made bearable by an old granny constantly yelling "fuck off home Hillier" and a bloke that during a complete lull in noise yelled at Houston "Oi son of George fuck off!" so loud it fucking echoed around the ground and SH looked up into the NB with an expression of horror and astonishment on his face. :lol:

She used to run a B&B off Holloway Road, Madge to some. Mogs to her friends and regular lodgers, was known to get into the occasional fisticuffs with scum fans, she used to spit at them when they arrived at Highbury...You'd think butter wouldn't melt till she unveiled her Arsenal Scarf and started cussing.

She had a red and white scarf with dozens of Arsenal badges all over it. Same lady? We bumped into her again outside the Gunners bar years later after the 2-3 home debacle against the scum.

Is it my eyes or are the adidas logo and club crest rather too close together on the bruised banana jersey - doesn't look right :?



No I think you are right 8)

Thank you.

Hey Rodders, what's your source for this bit of good news? Not questioning it but, well, is it legit :lol:
Is it legit? Who do you think I am? Arfur fucking Daly :lol:

Coming in January, fingers crossed the ‘89 away is next on the agenda so I can spunk my undies.

Never doubted you for a second.

I was just concerned that when you were running your daily google search for bruised banana porn you had somehow ended up on the Trotters Independent Trading Co website. But this would appear to be the one

The shirt still looks wrong to me :?

I'm confused by it :?

Adidas don't usually make those kind of cock ups - hopefully by the time they're released, it will have been sorted out.

Getting released Wednesday :barscarf:

Happy days eh :lol: Proper clobber, proper crest :barscarf:

Wouldn't let half our current lot touch it tbh - you only get to wear this when you start playing like a football team until then you play in the mickey mouse crest girls.

Love that old crest. Pure class.

I'm not as big a fan as most of the bruised banana kit though. For me it was an end to our run of classic yellow and blue away kits. Those three successive things of beauty that that came after the green and blue 1982/83 kit. I still have all my old kits somewhere at my mum and dads house but I wish I had had the foresight to buy an adult version to wear years later.

WTF???????????????

It's not even an exact replica of the original? :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

The chevrons are going the wrong way and you're right the badge and Adidas logo are too close together :banghead:

Oh and there're no feint AFC text in the black chevrons like the original either.

How could they fuck this up so badly :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

A bit of a disappointment really :|

For what it's worth the bowl will be rammed with idiots who didn't know the club existed pre TOF strutting about with a banana on :wink: so maybe, just maybe it's better not to bother.

Just checked a well known replica site I use and can get it for $19 + shipping so roughly £20.

I was actually considering paying for the real one at £50 but £75 is just ripping people off!
