I won’t argue about what the best colour is :laughing7: that would be a new low for the forum :laughing7:

However I do think historically despite losing finals the connection with arsenal and yellow is far stronger than any other away colour. My son wore a ghastly recent white one to his football training yesterday

At least we are playing in red next week.

Red shirts and white sleeves is by far the strongest connection to Arsenal, way more than yellow.

Dortmund have once again moved quickly to replace an outgoing player, Pulisic sold for £58m, with two exciting players at decent value, Brandt and Thorgan Hazard. Both signed for less than the fee received for Pulisic.


They have a good system in place - with or without Klopp, Tuchel, Mislintat... they are not doing too badly but I guess still need that extra special someone like Klopp brings to dislodge BM.

Then there's this blue. The blue-yellow shirt is a training one. This blue with red sleeves might be a 3rd kit.

While that blue and yellow is pretty crap, the blue and red is a cracking shirt. Our 3rd kits have been apalling for years. That's a beauty.

Certainly lost some painful cup finals in the red. Birmingham was embarrassing, Liverpool in the Owen final was daylight robbery.
We beat Villa in the cup final in the yellow. And obviously not cup finals but as good as Anfield 89, OT 98 overmars, OT 02 Wiltord.

It’s the right move to have a yellow away, that just feels like arsenal to be. Don’t really mind what they do with he third kit, something fun that sells well to younger fans usually works. The Nigeria World Cup kit was pretty psychedelic but had fans queued around the block trying to buy it. I think a proper rehash of bruised banana would have the same affect for Arsenal fans

The Adidas 1990-92 home shirt was very nice. Adidas should also look at rehashing the 1989 away shirt. The supposed third kit looks nice. Then there will be the pre-match and training shirts. Probably 5-7 shirts every season nowadays...

Completely off topic and random post but I heard this song earlier and it reminds me of Sunday drives with my father and him having the radio on to the '70s classic station and this song always seem to come on at some point those afternoons. One of, if not the, greatest sax riffs ever. Had no idea till I looked it up he is scottish and the song is for a street in London. Is it the same Baker Street of Sherlock Holmes fame?

Arseblog gave a link to the second part of the Arsenal interview with Managing Director Vinai Venkatesham and Head of Football Raul Sanllehi.

He likened Sanllehi to a husky voiced Austin Powers and I just thought it was just hilarious.

It's actually a very good interview. Have a look and see what you think.

Groovy baby.

Wenger hints at not managing again. My guess and its only a guess, Wenger wanted to manage with similar parameters he had with us and he was not given assurances of that. I think he is not suited for the modern club football team. Football at the club level has changed a lot since he arrived on the scene. I think what may be his space is national football and even so it may not be at a top FIFA country. I'd be curious to see how he manages in that realm.

What should happen is an independent investigation on UEFA's decision to choose such an unsuitable venue for the final. Because I'd be amazed if Sepp Blatter type bungs hadn't come into the equation.

Won't happen either way in support of Mkhitaryan, let alone late switch of venue to Wembley. Traveling fans to Baku won't be reimbursed for their troubles either. All in all, not worth incurring sanctions, bans from comps, fines.
Enjoy your trip to Baku Bern.

But I have always thought he was another player who is too slow. His turn is able to be easily shut down plus he can’t move box to box fast enough. We already have a number of those players. He played 31 games for Fulham for 2 goals and not one assist. He is now 24 and cost us a lot of money plus I expect he earns silly money for someone who can’t play in his proper position. The only reason to keep him is for the number of British players we need on our books.

Meanwhile we're stuck with the wiggy b*stard who wont invest a penny and doesn't really care.. just shows there is no reward for 'behaving properly'. If it happens they'll be in the PL soon and probably breathing down our necks.

Football really is a joke these days - we've got two teams who between them haven't won a title in about 85 years contesting a 'champions league' final, and middle eastern states using football to white-wash their image.

What a load of b*llocks, glad I stopped wasting my time going to games etc. as it is just a f*cking pantomime these days.

Though for my generation it was inconceivable that Spurs never won the European Cup, nor more than one league title. Their great side of the early 60s may well have won the big-eared jug if the competition had allowed four entrants as it does these days. Back then only the league champions were eligible. In 1962 they got to the European Cup semis, while we were vin ordinaire.

So no one has mentioned the elephant in the room. Giroud 13 games 10 goals and 3-4 assists in Europa this season. When you talk about undervalues when we sell players this was another classic. I know we had to make the Aubameyang deal happen but we got about half his value for Giroud. IMO it meant that the Aubameyang cost us another 15mil. I just wish we could have pushed them Wellbeck at the time instead of Giroud.

I just hope whoever we buy this offseason we do some due diligence on their injury history. We definitely can't afford another Suarez, Diaby, Wellbeck or Ramsay.
