Arsenal release an awesome new away kit, I make a goofy graphic

imageI 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.

      Well, it’s better than Puma’s 2013-14 Bordeaux shirts, which look like someone threw up their lunch on it.

        Oh, absolutely. I only brought up the Bordeaux shirt because crapski thought Puma would ride in to save the day with their awesome designs. They might. Then again, they much just puke on a white T-shirt and call it an away shirt.

      I am easily pleased. For example, I smile every time I see someone use your and you’re correctly on the Internet.

        I actually have a sticky o key on my keyboard which, combined with my indelicate typing style, causes me too often to use too when I mean to use to. I try to correct it in editing but I miss things some times.

    I also plan to buy this away shirt, only on mine I’m getting the name “Self-Sustaining” on the back, with a number below to match whatever negative net expenditure figure is arrived at by the end of the transfer window.

    Must find happy place.


    Ramsey is to me what Pires is to Arseblog and Baines is to 7amkickoff.

      I like it. If he comes, you have a shirt with a great player on the back. If he doesn’t come, you have a constant reminder of Arsenal’s failures. Win-win.

      No. You should get HIG-WAYNE on it. That way you’re covered either way if we sign Rooney or Higuain. Or both!

    Perhaps we should have a “crappy” looking kit. 2 of the supposed 4 worst kits (both of which I have !!) were worn when we won the double and went unbeaten !!! (and in ’03 we should have won the league).
