Hurrah! Super-Duper! Cushty!
These are just a few words that came to mind when I saw the new Arsenal home kit earlier today.
I'm always rather excited when we release a new home strip but I have to say that quite often in the past I've not liked it and felt rather let down by it.
That's Nike for ya though eh?
To be honest, I wanted us to jog Nike on and get Hi-Tec or Gola to design our kits. Maybe even JJB Sports. Instead we stuck with Nike and I have to say well done!
Nike have really outdone themselves with this one for a change and its about time after 16 years of the odd half-decent strip while the rest have been...........shit.
We finally look like Arsenal Football Club again and not Charlton Athletic Football Club which is quite a relief!
What a difference all-white sleeves make.
I. LOVE. IT.
The question on most peoples lips will be; Is Cesc going to be wearing the kit next season?
I think so. Not just because of what he said today either.
In general conversations I've had with people (and status's I've had on Facebook!) I've always believed he will stay with Arsenal. At least for one more season anyway.
In fact, I was so sure he will stay that I announced everyone of my Facebook buddies could slap me round the chops with a fish from Billingsgate Fish Market if he left.
I extend that offer. I extend it to all the Gooners reading this blog today.
If Cesc Fabregas leaves Arsenal this summer I'll allow one slap, one slap only, to my face with a salmon from Billingsgate Market from each and every one of you.
Keep it Goonerish................
