The Shirt Fuse: Will You Be My Yellow

New, comment

With our whole heart, yes.

Ian Wright of Arsenal

Arsenal have officially answered the question, “Will you be my yellow?”

Arsenal Twitter confirms the boys in yellow will make their return this weekend at Southampton.

Arsenal have not worn all yellow since a Champions League (remember those days?) match versus AC Milan. I loathe that kit and especially the yellow shorts. I expect this to be more tastefully done, but doubt it grows on me to the point I call for a permanent all yellow look.

Looking back, it ages better than I thought. I still prefer Arsenal in yellow/blue combo over yellow/maroon. Maroon shorts will be returning next season for away kits!

Other one-off kit combos I can think of off the top of my head below.

Not only is this the WORST Puma kit produced for Arsenal, I can’t tell if this is Liverpool during their Warrior brand days or Arsenal playing Napoli when I turn the television on.

A better home kit, no doubt about the top. This match was against West Brom during the 2017/18 season. I am unsure how Arsenal’s all blue away and all black 3rd kit were unacceptable to the league for Arsenal to rock in this match.

Now this is a one off look that I LOVED and would advocate it should have been the 3rd kit look all season in 2016/17. If anyone can find me a pair of these player exclusive shorts, I’ll pay handsomely for them.

Are there any Arsenal one off kit combos you remember? Any that you love or despise? Drop your favorites or kit combos you’d love to burn in the comments below!
