Is this picture confirmation of next season’s blue kit?

1 comment May 1st, 2009

This morning, the homepage features a pop up advertisement for next season’s away kit.  Whilst most of the image is in a concealing shadow, the small patch that is visible is unequivocably and somewhat upsettingly blue.

Bluer than a Monday

Looking at the image a little closer, it seems the shirt may also have pinstripes.  Whether or not it comes with a collar and tie remains to be seen.

I think a lot of fans will have mixed feelings (at best) about wearing what resembles a Chelsea shirt in many of our away games next season.  Whilst I wasn’t over-enthused about the green shirt that is flying off ebay’s transcendental shelves (I’d recently decided the green shirt was camoflague for Emmanuel Adebayor against the eagle-eyed gaze of the nation’s linesmen), a blue shirt is not what I had in mind.

One suspects that the designers of the shirt saw the popularity of this season’s away kit, and seized upon one of its key elements.  Unfortunately, they’ve picked the wrong one, focusing on the blueness rather than the glorious yellowness.

Officialy confirmation will arrive on May 21st, but in the meantime I’m going to see if I can do some digging.

To be fair to Nike, they did this week permit readers of Arseblog to pose questions directly to Theo Walcott, in what makes for a very entertaining little piece.  Apart from the last fifteen seconds or so, which just feel somewhat uncomfortable.  Check it out.

Tomorrow we face Portsmouth, with the knowledge that a win will secure fourth place.  Whilst I know it seems unlikely, it’s important we keep up the pressure on Chelsea in an effort to nick third place off them at the last minute.  With all that said, I’d still expect there to be plenty of changes tomorrow.

At least one of those will be enforced, with the news that Mikael Silvestre and Eduardo both picked up groin strains on Wednesday night.  For varying reasons, those two do seem to be particularly vulnerable to niggling injuries.

Full preview tomorrow, post Arsene’s afternoon press conference.
