The Great Arsenal Away Shirt Debate
Over the past few weeks debates have been raging all over the interweb after supposed information was leaked regarding Arsenal's away/third strip for the 2007/08 season.
Pictured below are to possible prototypes of the shirt. The top one coming from Arseblog and the second shirt coming for The Online Gooner
The big talking point amongst Gooners is the fact that the main body of the shirt is white (similar to our precious neighbours) and indeed the main consensus is that most fans are opposed to the shirt for that very reason.
It is seen by many as a disturbing way to pocket a few extra roubles by Nike, and is seen as going against tradition.
I personally have no problem with either shirt, in fact I think they look quite nice. I'm not dancing from the roof tops that Arsenal are bringing out another shirt when it seems we have to shell out almost every season, however there is a simple solution to that; Don't buy it.
I'm not overly bothered that it seems to go against the tradition of yellow and blue, of course those who know their history will know that we have already had a white away shirt in the past.
And as for getting your knickers in a twist because Spurs wear white..........It's got the Arsenal badge on it, it will be worn by the Arsenal players and sold in the Arsenal shops.
Well that's my own personal opinion, what do the rest of you think?
