The Great Arsenal Away Shirt Debate

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?

I really like both. The one on the top has gold on the edges, not green! But all this petition against stopping the shirt being white and all that crap from all the blogs is pathetic. They are just doing it for the sake of it. I see no reason why we should boycott it just because it is a little similiar to our niegboors. Its just so silly. They release new kits every 2 years anyway so I see no argument in the "nike trying to make a quick buck out of poor gooners" argument. Just because we have a white away kit, it doesn't mean it will ever make us as sh.it as tottenham, so get over it. if you just wanna be a sheep and follow whatever arseblogger says then do so.

I'm not a traditionalist, but I think yellow is synonymous with our club. That said, I never buy these anyway so I don't really care. My main question is can someone please explain to me the logistics of having a red and white away kit? How the ***** are we ever gonna be able to wear this at Anfield or Old Trafford? It's the same colour as our home kit! Why is nobody else asking this question? Has the world gone mad? Has my prescription run out?

LD I've heard that this is likely to become our away kit with this seasons away kit dropping down to third choice, so the yellow kit will be worn when we play other red&whitey's.

Yes LD that is one question every gooner would like to know the answer, some say that we will wear the 3rd kit in those macthes but I am not sure we will and both of them looks fake
