People love kit stories.
No, not the car driven by Michael Knight, in his eponymous, groundbreaking reality TV show Knight Rider, but the shirts Arsenal will wear next season.
Some pictures emerged last month, and now it seems there have been some more to get your teeth sunk into. And by teeth we mean eyeballs, although imagine someone who consumed their own twin in the womb and had teeth in their eyes.

Some of the marketing bumph has been revealed also. The home kit is apparently ‘A shade of deep red that represents the blood running through the hearts of all Arsenal fans’, while the blue away kit is because next year is the Chinese year of the spider, and the marketing team have been working to attract new fans in that region.
The description reads, “The blue is reminiscent of the glass spider of the Zi Duang province, who has blue eyes almost like a human’s. They shed tears at the wintered turn of the centuries, much as Arsenal will forge their way to success through immaculate vision and prestige.”
