But come one Rockstaar, imagine turning up to chelsea or sp*rs away in that kit, its a joke thats gone to far.

I would love to know the stats on how many kits weve had in the past 10 years, I bet its the most. We change both kits every bloody season usually and use anything remotly related a "commererative shirt" which allows them to only use it for a season. Rip off merchants at their best.

Every few years there is a kit designer high off his @#$%& who comes up with these wacky designs and they manage to slip through the "excedingly ugly" net.

Its fair to say its going to be our turn next season.

But yeh I would love to know the stats and income from the last 10 years on our kits the turnover has been rediculous.

Green will not grow on me. I never mind any particular design but i won't wear green personally. It's a stupid colour to wear.

Chaps, I think Plymouth Argyle and Panthanaikos have been managing to win football matches despite their players blending in with the grass, so I wouldnt worry about that.

I would buy it. The yellow kit may be traditional but if you actually buy the shirts it makes you look like a great big walking banana. You hardly see anyone wearing the 'pyjama' style away kit at the moment, so you can hardly blame the club for redesigning it into a different colour, that people actually buy. I still like the 2002-3 navy and sky blue away kit the best, I wish they would bring it back. My ones starting to wear out now Ive worn it that much.

I like it. People always moan about it, but I am sure there will be hundreds of "Diaby 2" shirts at the Grove next season.

But I won't buy it, I never get away kits.

We had a very similar away kit back in 82 and 83 I think, we actually lost to manure in the fac semi final at villa park in it. It was the first Arsenal away kit I ever owned but it did make us look like wimbledon ball boys.

I find it strange that we never have had a black away kit seeing as black is so popular and can be worn for many situations.

Gooner Mike you will find that Arsenal are not even close to being the club with the most changes of strip in the last number of years and apart from the redcurrent and the 89 commermorative strips the club has stuck fairly firmly to their policy of keeping shirts for two seasons - I know some away shirts have only been second strip for one season and then used as third strip the second season but hey no one is making anyone buy them and you can't blame the club for running as a business too

sorry to pick you up on mere detail Eduardo but we wore our red kit that day and united wore their white kit. If youre talking about the game where Woodcock scrambled us into the lead off the post in the first half but Robson and Whitside scored in the second. which I think you are.

I think you'll find the last time we kept the same away kit for consecutive seasons was 1997-1999

We have been through 16 different home and away kits since 1999-2000 season or 19 including 3rd kits.

I remember when I first moved away from London when i was still fairly young. It was very hard to buy Arsenal shirts anywhere. Now you can find Arsenal, Man U, Chelsea, Milan, and teams like LA Galaxy, Sparta, Lazio pretty much everywhere in the UK.

The ultimate arsenal shirt was the 1992 yellow and blue prison arrow one. I used to wear it in nightclubs it was that good.

I loved that shirt! I wanted it so badly but could never find it.I had to settle for the horrible green goalie top with as much padding as one of those wolverine costumes you see now. I remember most of the football stickers that year were of the away shirt because the home one looked@#$%&comparitively.

The 95/96 with lighter blue & darker blue halves and lightning (the first Arsenal shirt I could get my hands on)? Or the 94/95 with the almost all dark blue with lighter blue on the top of the shoulders?

The dark blue with yellow accents and "Dreamcast"? I agree that it's sleek.
