Arsenal twitterverse not only got to celebrate North London continuing to be Red, as it always has been, but Gooners also got their first true look at what next year’s home kit (with fans in stadia!) will look like.
I am not biggest fan of side paneling on Arsenal home kits, my preference is red shirt, white sleeves, so I can pass on the panels running down the sides. The collar with a slightly elevated lift is a nice touch and I do really enjoy the clean lines the entire shirt encompasses. As always, what we do in these shirts will dictate how much we truly come to love them in future years. This is our third iteration from adidas and my current favorite is this season’s, mostly because we won the FA Cup in and Kieran Tierney models it as well as anyone could imagine on a weekend basis.
Previous Arsenal kits that will come to mind are shirts from the 1998-2002 era and 2008-2010.
Additionally the sleeves with color piping, which is class, will spring memories of 1992-1994 and more recently our last Nike home shirts of 2012-2014.
So Gooners, what are you thoughts? Will you be ordering that ESR #10 kit in June just to be the first with Emile as your number 10? Or maybe you’re more a Saliba #4 because I’m still buying stock in player who is yet to feature for Arsenal kind of supporter? Or possibly #8 Arteta to show your unwavering support for our manager?
