Arsenal unveil new away and third kit

87

Arsenal have officially unveiled the new away kit, and the third kit which we’re contractually obliged to wear at some point. Probably in a game when we could easily just wear the home strip.

The launch took place last night in Los Angeles, with Hollywood star Jamie Foxx in attendance. Why does he have two Xs in his name? We’re not fans of superfluous, unnecessary vowels consonants. Yes, we’re looking at you people called Matthew. One T would be just fine, stop being so damn greedy.

Anyway, it was an all Spanish trio of Hecttor Bellerin, Santti Cazorla and Naccho Monreal who were on modelling duty last night, as you can see.

We also thought this Instagram comment perfectly summed up the excitement of an Arsenal kit launch:

It’s very difficult to argue with that.

Shirts are too fussy for my liking.
What’s with the half collar on the away shirt?.. That line down the middle on the home still bugs me.

And I can’t take the third one seriously? Anyone else?

Matt

Why not? The third one reminds me of Borussia Dortmund’s shirts, it looks very nice. The line on the home one doesn’t bother me either. Maybe the half collar is a bit strange but that’s it.

Pooks

The third one is a Chelsea kit

Gunnerjoe

Like the third one

Rachid

Well, I’m glad you’re not the ones designing the jerseys. This is 2016. Nothing wrong with going with more contemporary touches like a half collar.

Hi-brid

X and T are consonants. You’d be rubbish on Countdown.

jcdickman

You should snort some marmelade LIVE on the next Arsecast, as punishment for your egregious grammatical transgression.

badaab

Sounds like blogs has been watching too much Mr horseman.

Lula da Gilberto

You got one dislike from me. But only because i was laughing and clicked the wrong one.

Clive St Helmet

Or pissed at Rachel Riley.

“I asked for a consonant and you pulled out a goddam ‘X’! What is wrong with you, blondie?”

BTW, as of 23:20, the vowel thing is still on there…

Chris

I hope Santi gets his own Netflix spin-off series when his contract is up.

JakeyBoy

Better Call Santi

Bob

The Santi clause

Gutbukket Deffrolla

Mertesacker’s already playing “Big” Ant-Man in the Marvel movies. so I don’t see why Santi can’t get in on the fun.

215 Arse

Peewee Herman.

Javis

I really like the 3rd kit and will make this one my annual purchase. It’ll go a miniscule way to helping us fund a massive transfer fee

Jimbo1

The third kit is actually not bad, but not really necessary apart from making extra sales.

Gutbukket Deffrolla

…to Javis, and maybe some other random rich guy.

Just wait til Gabriel mistakes Santi for da Costa in that kit and goes through both his knees and an ankle at the same time. I think that kit is criminally stupid.

Gooooooooooooona

Puma is known to be the more ‘fashionable’ sport brand. They’re just trying to get more youngsters to buy it. They go crazy over those fluorescent colours. My younger brother (not an arsenal fan ?) loves the kit…

Eyob

Away kit is OK – but can it play at front???

Paul

Is Jose 9 a striker?? 😉

GunnAlex

New Away, and Third Kit are quite odd names for our new attacking players. What are the origins of these names, Samoan or something?

broken red army

isnt New Away a centre back?

Paul

Yep, 17 year old Japanese kid (Wenger really hates Vardy).
🙂

Paul

Third Kit is the 3rd son of Ertha Kitt (the legendary star of stage and screen), he plays upfront for his local pub team and is thought to be better than Theo by his mum.

Gutbukket Deffrolla

earthakitt? Isn’t that Welsh for “Bury a cat?”

Highberry

It’s also cockney rhyming slang for what Arron thinks about sp*rs

Berlingoon

So the away kit is yellow and grey instead of yellow and blue in the end. I would have liked blue more tbh but it still looks nice. Third kit is the first kit I won’t buy for ages. It’s awful.

Space cow

Why do they always make the 3rd kit so stupid?

Gandalf

So much nipple action. Being back Nike, for the love of god.

Sir chips

Hector must be cold.

FromArseToElbow

“Superfluous, unnecessary vowels” would be Jamie Foox, which he might have felt it necessary to change for professional reasons. I presume you meant consonants.

Snake in the grARSE

“We’re not fans of superfluous, unnecessary vowels.”

You’ve been staring at that bird’s arse the whole time on Countdown instead of paying attention, haven’t you?

Anonymarse

It is very nice

Bob

So is the rest of her

Kdog

The away kit looks nice, more traditional looking and the third kit, while a little drab, is an improvement on last years’s eyesore of a kit. If Arsenal buy a striker just maybe I will consider getting my first yellow away jersey from them!

Joeshmo

In a recent puma interview, Santi said Nacho had the worst dress sense in the team. So I imagine he probably asked to wear the third kit for the unveiling.

Rozza the samourai

He said Nacho has bad MUSIC taste. He carpools with Nacho sometimes.

Gutbukket Deffrolla

Maybe the 3rd kit has a built-in mp3 player.

Gooooooooooooona

Hey basically said nacho is the worst at everything, which makes it funny considering they’re good mates

Wizardry

Two kits are enough. Just corporate bullshit. I wish they took the transfer window more seriously than this ridiculous third kit launch.

Bob

What happens if we play someone who wears red and yellow stripes?

broken red army

yeah there ’cause are so many teams with red and yellow first kits.

Wizardry

Well Bob, I’m assuming the other team also has two kits.

Andy Mack

If they’re at home then they get to choose which kit they want and we have to work around that.

Toby C

Get yourselves some retro kit from the 30s or the 70s and you’ll never have to buy a shirt again! ?

David Hillier's luggage

Away kit is too fussy and has a horrible collar. The third looks like a cheap League One teams away kit bar the dodgy betting sponsor. Both are terrible and make the home kit look like a work of art.

Özorlexisey

Bellerin looks good whatever he wears.He’s got the quality to be face of the arsenal.

Matt

I really like the third kit

Rozza the samourai

Me too.

Vescucci

Nipple prints 😛

Third Plebeian

Still better than the sweat stain prints on last year’s away kit.

Vescucci

And the people taking Arseblog seriously with the superfluous comment are making me wonder if they’re reading him for the first time :/

Thaatarsenalguy

I really like the away kit, not sure about the stripe on the home kit

Thaatarsenalguy

3rd kit looks like glow in the dark pyjamas

Jack Lewis

Very true! If the floodlights ever go out we’ll be fine, so maybe the kit was made like that for safety reasons!

Jack Lewis

Hector has a lot of testosterone in those picttures!?!

Anonymarse

Maybe he’s feeling horny

Jack Lewis

Probably not, I can’t see Giroud in the pic

Fuzzy Dunlop

Hector and Santi have got the new kit promo pictures facial expression down, but Nacho just reminds me of that taxi driver bloke who ended up discussing the latest tech developments on BBC News by accident.

Thaatarsenalguy

” Thousand yard stare whilst releasing a fart “

Thaatarsenalguy

Nacho looks like he knows what I did last summer…

gordy

More money from us to not spend on players. As I live 100 miles away I only get to half of the games as a red member. Just bought a ticket for the Liverpool game, which it’s hard to be enthusiastic about with half the team on holiday. Only £127.

Anthony

Probably the best trio of kits we’ve had in a while.

Really like the third kit, least on those dark nights we’ll be able to pick a team mate for a pass – whether it gets there, another story 😉

Neil #2

Though I always feel like that slightly darker line down the front of the home kit just looks like a perspiration stain.

Sylent Syd

So long as I don’t go anyplace that has blacklights, i don’t mind the third kit.

Bob Davis

I quite like the top Freddie’s wearing, but the yellow zip down the middle just spoils it for me. There’s also a vertical one on the back with Arsenal written on it. At £60, it’s a bit steep!

ArsenalRising

For fuck sake… I thought the yellow away kit was gunner be nice! Its fucked up by those horrible fuckin socks! Why didn’t they use the same template for the home kit socks with the top 5/6 inches of the socks black or Grey to break up the socks as I always prefer stripes on the socks! As for the 3rd kit I DESPISED it when I first saw it last month leaked but seeing it on Monreal, I actually quite like it.. I don’t mind it but it does remind me of a Chelshit shirt tho. But the Away… Read more »

Eddie McGoldeen

The third kit is lovely, in my humble one.

H Dawg III

I really don’t care what we wear, as long as we come out and win games in it.

Double98

That’s some nipple on the boy Hector…

Geefive

Freddie is such a sexy beast….Dammit. Looks better now than his playing days. I just keep getting fatter and paler (if that’s actually possible) the older i get.

AlexisKoszil

Well whichever the case, it’s hell better than the omg purple that once appeared.
But to our team,
I seriously think
Kos Holding Chambers Coq
Will be vital to our plans this year.
And I like how it sounds too when you read it together.
Though I still think we need a more established partner for Kos
Kos Coq long or short term just does not sounds right.

Tony Hall

I dunno what some people are whinging about, they are all really decent kits for a change especially the
third one. It does remind me of Borussia Dortmund kit and we could do a lot fucking worse than following their example on the pitch …

DialSquareGoon

Hate the half-collar on the away kit

Dustwolf83

You would think from the revenue gained from this tour, they could put a little on the heating budget during the photo shoot…

'desi'gner gooner

Really like the third kit and I quite like the stripe down the middle in the home kit as well. The grey on the away kit also looks refreshing instead of the usual blue. The half collar on the away kit is the only thing I did not like amongst the three kits. Good job by Puma with the kits this year. All three kits this year are far better than the ones last year.

Yankee Gooner

Reporting in from Real Madrd v Chelsea in Ann Arbor: John Terry is still a cunt.

Yankee Gooner, over and out.

Vincent Kompany's Forehead/Jamie Vardinho

Bring back the Home 05/06 Roma-esque kit please.

That flourescent shit looks horrible too.

greg

Let’s all hope we are being trolled with the johnny Evans link

greg

And his recent quotes just as terrifying

He's got no hair but we don't care...

Monreal has got the ‘oh bollocks’ look of someone who knows he’ll be playing centreback for a bit.

Yankee Gooner

For some reason I’m having a hard time believing that hector is so much taller than Santi and also taller than nacho.

Clock-End Mike

Isn’t one Puma badge per shirt enough? Three, really? Maybe there are even more round the back…
