Arsenal Getting Shirty

Arsenal and Nike have vowed to replace shirts that appear to be defective.

The Gunners have issued a statement claiming all Gooners who have bought a defective shirt they can have a replacement when the batch of new ones arrive in May.

The statement read,

As you may know, there has been a problem with the 'Fly Emirates' logo on the 2006/07 home shirt, caused by a fault in the manufacture of certain batches of the logos.

There have been two issues. The first, 'delamination', is when the logo actually starts to peel off from the shirt. The second concerns the cracking of the logo.

Although we have been aware of the delamination issue since early August, this was restricted to a single manufacturing batch and as soon as we were aware of the issue we stopped selling the affected shirts. More recently we have become aware of the cracking issue which we are advised only occurs on certain shirts after one or more washings. It was when we became aware of this that we withdrew all home shirts from sale last Friday.

Although we are assured only a limited number of batches of shirts are affected, we suggest that all of our fans who have bought a 2006/07 home shirt check it for these problems.

Any fan who has identified a logo delamination or cracking problem with a shirt purchased from one of our retail operations should contact the following email address, homeshirts@arsenal.co.uk, giving their name, address, telephone number, size of shirt (e.g. boys small size) and date of purchase. We have arranged with Nike that new stock will be available in early May and we will exchange faulty shirts (following inspection) for new shirts at the earliest opportunity.

Fans who purchased shirts from other retailers should contact the relevant retailer directly.

Nike regrets that the problems with the Fly Emirates logo were not identified before the shirts were released for sale and is working closely with Arsenal to resolve them as quickly as possible.


My own shirt has started to crack on the logo, and will be grateful for my shiny new shirt in May!

Paul Robinson would also like a refund or exchange after his gut piled through the front of his goalkeepers jersey, any chance?

Spurs were originally going to be sponsored by 'Pie Toms' but Robsion kept condeding goals as he stood licking the logo rather than stopping the balls flying in. Now they have changed they are a team on the up!!!

back on form of late, I'll have you know. It would appear the size of his gut in no way affects his performances... there most be some other reason for his shocking shows this season.

funnily enough, my sister in law had a problem and was talking about it yesterday, she has changed the shirt 5 times already !

TBH I'd prefer the shirts without the emirates thing anyway, It'd look far choicier, I hate all this corporate cock plastered over all and sundry turning everyone into a walking billboard, yeah I like Adidas sneaks - would I wear a tshirt of their name in foot high lettering? would I @~#!

Chelsea fans will be alerted to this news as when Roman f*@ks off and they crumble they will be trying to swap their shirts for United ones!
iceman10
