Here is what our lads WILL be wearing on their travels next season.
A few months ago, we here at Gunnersphere posted up a potential white away jersey, which we thought the lads would be modelling this upcoming season. The shirt featured a blue collar and thin blue vertical lines along the front, and although it looked like a carbon copy of last season’s yellow away kit – but with a different colour scheme – it generally went down well with most Gooners.
However, the Gunners, along with manufactures Nike, have put this matter to rest by deciding to go with this navy blue and turquoise number which French star Samir Nasri so proudly models.
Although the shirt may look like something that Monaco players would wear, it is understood that the diagonal line across the chest represents ‘the pointer’ which casts a shadow on a sundial – this is to honour the original Dial Square on the site of the Arsenal factory in Woolwich, where the club was first founded in 1886.
It – along with the new home strip – will also feature the special crest to mark the clubs 125th year of existence.
To be honest, I can’t say that I’m a huge fan of it, maybe it will grow on me, but for now I think I will be keeping my cash in my pocket, then again, I may have to purchase one purely for the fact that it is the away shirt that is commemorating our 125th anniversary.
If you like the look of this kit then you can now pre-order it on the official Arsenal website; otherwise you can wait until it hits stores nationwide on July 28th.
Give us your thoughts on the new away kit – is it a hit or miss?
