Away Kit Unveiled; Eduardo has a screw loosened; £50m kitty?

29 comments May 21st, 2009

Arsenal have today unveiled the new away kit for next season, as modelled by off-field pals Cesc Fabregas and Andrey Arshavin.

The press release can be found here, and an assortment of images of the new kit (including some slightly odd photo-shopped efforts like the one below) can be viewed here.

Whilst I remain gutted to be replacing our fantastic yellow strip with a blue monstrosity, this shirt is better than I had feared: it’s a far darker shade than these initial glimpses implied.  Anyhow, what’s done is done now – I just hope we retain the yellow shirt as a potential third kit.

Amaury Bischoff has threatened to leave the club.  As tumbleweed moments go, I can’t imagine anything more poignant than Amaury Bischoff standing up in the middle of the canteen and declaring his ultimatum: “PLAY ME OR LOSE ME”.  Whilst Bischoff’s desire to get his career back on track is admirable, perhaps he ought to consider just what a gamble Arsene took on a player who had not played competetive football for two years.

One man who I’m sure has a greater degree of appreciation for the patience the club have shown with him is Eduardo, who underwent a very minor operation this week to remove some screws that were inserted into the ankle joint in the initial career-saving procedure.  All things being well, he ought to be back and raring to go come the start of pre-season.

Finally today, The Evening Standard claim a source inside the club has dismissed the “£13m budget” as mischief-making and suggested we have closer to £25m+sales to spend.  Whilst this is as likely to be fabricated as any other story, I thought it worthwhile to provide a bit of balance to the doom and gloom of some reports.

Today we should get some team news for the final game of the season.  Do not be surprised if Emmanuel Adebayor is declared ‘injured’…
