I suppose we've all seen the 'new 2010/11 home shirt' on various Arsenal blog sites. Many are saying it is photo-shopped.
To be fair, it does look a little dodgy and I'm sure that someone has already pointed out the original photo.
I've also seen that Arsenal may get a new kit supplier when our contract with Nike runs out. I really hope we do.
I would love a company like Adidas to design Arsenal's kits.
Over the years I've always liked the way Adidas have produced their kits. The only one I don't really like is the Chelsea strip. It looks like an Armadillo with a bra on.
Imagine chesting the ball with that zip? Ouch.
Anyway, whatever the kit looks like I just hope that William Gallas and Cesc Fabregas are both wearing it. There has been so much speculation about the pair over the last few days.
In my opinion Arsenal should offer Gallas a two-year deal if that is what it takes to keep him at the club. Regular readers of my blog will know that I've always loved him and stuck up for him. Even during those 'dark days' when he cried at Birmingham.
The man has been immense this season.
The untrusting amongst us will say Gallas has raised his game to put himself in the shop window, earning himself a massive deal, either at Arsenal or away from us.
I prefer to think that he has been liberated by his partnership with Thomas Vermaelen. They seem to enjoy playing alongside one another.
It is no secret that Gallas and Toure didn't get on. Perhaps we are only seeing the best of Gallas now because Kolo has gone.
Yes, it may seem petty and on paper a partnership of Gallas-Toure looks a brilliant combination but sometimes things don't always work out.
Vieira and Fabregas? That never really set the world alight did it?
Gallas is experienced, and more importantly, experienced in winning the title. I still believe he is World-Class and not only that; he is a warrior. Despite crying on the pitch.
I know that I would rather have William on my side rather than against me. Look around the Arsenal side. See many warriors? Gallas is definitely one of them.
Another of the warriors is Fabregas. There has been speculation about him since the dawn of time. It can get very boring.
I feel very sorry for Cesc. There can only be so many times he can come out and tell us he is staying at Arsenal.
Despite him saying he is staying there is a growing belief that he will actually leave this summer.
I concede that there maybe a time he will leave Arsenal. But I don't believe it will happen this year and when he does make the move away the Emirates it will be to join Barcelona. Not Real Madrid. Not AC Milan, Inter or anybody else.
Who honestly would begrudge him a move back to his homeland? I wouldn't because in my opinion he has been loyal to Arsenal and in this day and age that is something to be treasured.
Fabregas could end up staying at Arsenal forever though. I'm sure I know how too.
Cesc loves Arsene Wenger and feels he owes him a lot. It could be that our skipper stays as long as Arsene does.
Cesc also loves Pep Guardiola, the Barcelona manager. He is an idol to Fabregas. Perhaps when the day comes calling Pep could take over the managers job at Arsenal.
I'm sure I read that Wenger invited Guardiola to England a few times to watch Arsenal and visit the training ground. Maybe he is keen for the Barca manager to take his place one day?
Arsenal could offer Guardiola complete freedom, something he doesn't get at Barcelona, a new challenge abroad and the opportunity to continue the way Arsenal play football. Like he does at Barca.
If Pep Guardiola came to Arsenal I would be 100% sure that Fabregas would stay. Maybe even until the end of his career.
Keep it Goonerish...............
