The offseason is upon us, and Arsenal fans have turned their attention from the pitch to off field business. This includes rumors and speculation about players coming and going, as well as the pros and cons of the team’s new strips for the upcoming campaign.
Adidas has taken over from Puma, and leaked images of the team’s home, away and third kits has led to a lot of chatter among fans. Based on the overall reaction, it seems that supporters are liking what they see. First off is the fact that the home red jersey has been reunited with the yellow away shirt. However, it’s the third kit which combines blue and gold that is receiving rave reviews.
Don’t know who’s buying me the Arsenal third kit but thank you in advance— Cleopatra (@cleopatralors) June 9, 2019
wowwwww @Arsenal really had the cheek to make the third kit peng aswell? no respect for my bank balance whatsoever— (@quornst4r) May 23, 2019
These overwhelming positive comments are a complete departure from the way last season’s third kit was received. To say that the mint green shirt was not a fan favorite would be an under statement.
Honestly think Arsenal's 'mint green' third kit is a problem. They've only won one game in it all season (at Bournemouth). Same problem United had against Southampton all those years ago...?— Sam Dean (@SamJDean) April 15, 2019
I hope when Adidas take over as @Arsenal's new kit provider, we can get back to our proper colours. The current away and third kits - especially the third kit - are absolutely vile.— Adam (@Paranoimia) October 14, 2018
Arsenal’s New Mint Green Third Kit is Absolutely Brutal https://t.co/f1SoxT1Sst— Gunners Tweets (@Gunners__Tweets) May 23, 2018
Arsenal’s away woes were well documented last season. Superstitious fans were quick to blame the third shirt. Proving that Gunners supporters do have a sense of humor is this fan who has found the positive in the team’s new look third strip.
At least we'll look good for those away trips to Kazakhstan and Belarus— Jaluo Thomas (@Jaluo3000) June 9, 2019
What do you think of the new Adidas Arsenal shirts?
