I love the new away kit with its “classic” yellow and blue coloring and the pimp collar. So, naturally when I saw the press release today I felt I needed to knock something up to celebrate. The pictures were all very neat but I noticed that only Aaron Ramsey buttoned all the way to the top. Which just makes him more pimp in my book and was the inspiration of my goofy comic above.
Anyway, I already have a long and short sleeve version from 2004 and it’s the perfect time to retire those and pick up a new kit. Especially since the long sleeve has a very worn “Vieira” on the back (I wear it!).
Just to make sure I cover all the players that Arsenal are supposed to sign this summer I’m going to get mine with HIGUAINROONEYFELLAINIBARRYBENDERCESCCAPOUEGONALONSGRENIERJOVETICSUAREZ on the back. £50 kit, £100 lettering.
What number? Easy, 229. The number of goals Thierry Henry scored before the League took one and gave it to the needy, Scott Dann.
