Despite the fact the world is in lockdown and crisis, and football is up the creek without a paddle, some things remain the same.

Transfer rumours, for example, are continuing as if nothing much has changed and everyone will have tens of millions to splash around when the market opens again.

So too kit rumours and leaks of upcoming shirts. This is less surprising, because even if football clubs won’t have a lot of money, the chaps still need to wear kit as we’re not yet ready for the flappy sight of nude Premier League.

As ever, the lads at Footy Headlines have the picture, and this is what they believe to be the Arsenal away kit for next season (whenever next season happens).

Arseblog News was told some time ago that white and maroon would be key components of the upcoming away kit, but the addition of what appear to be blood splatters is not quite what we were expecting.

Nevertheless, our shirts are soaked with the blood of our enemies, and from there it will seep into the very ground itself as they return from whence they came, brutally dispatched to seek forgiveness from their gods and to avoid their own eternity in the fiery depths of hell … after a comfortable 2-0 win for Arsenal (Aubameyang 31, Tierney 72).

Of course it remains to be seen if this officially the kit. There is a hint of training kit off it, so it might be that. We’ll see.

What do we think about it given that it is white…? Haven’t made my mind up yet.

Abeautifulmind

Are we trying to be gangs of London? 😂

aberinkula

Wow. Um. Not entirely sure the splatters are good, but I guess I’ll be OK wolfing down my chips and ketchup / paella / bolognase / in this.

aberinkula

After further consideration, I think it would be more appropriate if we offered this design to Newcastle for their “Turkish Embassy” inspired third kit.

Goonerrific

Well, that’s the Halloween outfit sorted.

Richie

Get Mustafi printed on the back of the shirt for the full Zombie experience.

fgsjgshgsf

this needs to be stopped

Kinghenrythe14th

I love this. Training or away kit, I’ll be getting it

Holmesy

It’s a dead Spurs shirt?

Josh

Hmm not sure this would be a good shout, especially given the Visit Rwanda sponsorship. A bit redolent of the genocide.

Richie

Bloody good point.

Rich

It’s just a kit design….

Our home kit is completely red, which must mean it represents even more gory blood than this kit?

Should we just ban red kits? And the colour red in general? in case it offends someone?

We’ve managed to produce a generation of people who look for stupid things to be offended about, because they believe in expressing their outrage, it demonstrates their virtues.

It’s absolutely fascinating.

bob

Well done on missing the joke

Reality check

Probably wasn’t expecting a joke about genocide..

A Different George

Oh, Rich, just say something about how Ozil is not worth the money and leave us alone.

Public Elneny

Rich your name is elitist and it offends me

Can I call you Dick instead?

Helen Gallery

Not entirely sure what to make of that Blogs, suffice it to say there was very good reason we stopped wearing white tunics in the ED some time ago…it’s not a good look…
Please God let someone be messing with our heads. Yellow. It should be yellow! But not with red splatters ….

Serpent

Vanilla with strawberry ripple?

Post January Blip

Bruised banana followed by strawberry ripple. How lucky am I?!

karl

It looks like a nice fashion item if you are wearing it as a fan. I loved seeing the team in the traditional yellow away kit this year though. What a shame it was wasted on a throw away season.

goonero

Is that a picture of the one they sent to Dexter Morgan?

Paul

ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS YELLOW SHIRTS BLUE SHORTS FFS!

goonerink

no one else realise that its in homage to highbury and the marble halls?

Double98

Totally

Doug

Yes, clearly.

Group captain mandrake

If no one sees that, and instead see blood or ketchup, then it’s not a very good homage.

Doug

Perhaps they could change the colour to blue to avoid confusion.

YpsiGooner

I eventually caught that, too. But if this is a thing, you know it’s gonna get a blood inspired nickname.

ChrisM

I’m so confused, I saw this and thought “Good old Arseblog, with the jokes, clearly this isn’t the actual kit it literally looks like it’s covered in blood splatters”.

But now I’ve seen it all over twitter as well….

No, I’m sticking to my gut feeling, this isn’t real.

yeah… not real….

Thierry Bergkamp (non negotiable)

Looks like a Real Madrid shirt with an Arsenal badge. I like it.

Sandy Domenique

So we play in red and white….and somehow an away strip of white and red is proposed? That’s not sensible.
And the fact that it’s godawful is a bit of a drawback too.

Public Elneny

It’s so the 3rd kit gets more air time, then they can sell more of those too

BrassHi

Love Raspberry Ripple

jackhamma

This is truly disgusting. I will order.

Rich

I really like that.

Adidas are on a different level to Puma.

Stuey

Used Jam Rag

allezkev

Seems as if the Adidas design team must have been smoking a joint…

Blah

Or watching the walking dead

Mitch

I’m starting to think signing with Macron would have been the better option.

Hustle6

I’m usually the guy that likes the outlandish shirts that the “propa fans” deride.

I also really like adidas.

But to me this is our worst kit for some time.

It legit looks like fake blood to me. What kind of absolute clown goes around with a shirt with fake blood on it. Ooh look at me I’m hard. Its embarrassingly style averse and actually kinda makes me think of self harm (in general not that I would cut myself over hating this shirt lool)

I guess you could say its likenrasberry ripple ice cream but still wtf like.

Doug

It’s not blood splatters, you fool. It’s clearly marbling.

Doug

Oh and also, I really like it. I hope this is genuine.

Hustle6

Doug I’m sorry. You’re insane. Marbelling enthusiasts like you must be real thrilled.

David C

I see tiger stripes. I think Adidas designers were subconsciously influenced by Tiger King.

damobot

Death by a thousand cuts??

Naked Cygan

Hahahahahaha!! Omg this kit is amazing. I just wish martin keown was playing for us now in that kit with his bloody bandage wrapped
around his head, and is psycho eyes looking at opponents. Hahaha

Mark Wilcox

Absolutely Stunning away kit
Can’t wait to buy it with the home kit too
Can’t wait to watch my beloved Arsenal Football Club on June 17

Dave Swain

Hope the Raspberry ripple kit will stop the serious injuries, we wouldn’t want a load of raspberry ripples in the changing room

Tapps

Absolutely horrific!

Dave

I actually like it, looks pretty badass, kinda like if a rival’s blood spattered on it (even more so if is a spuds player blood)

I can imagine someone like Papa looking menacingly at rival players, giving them the evil eye and a smirk that says: Your blood will end on my shirt as well

Canadagoon

God I hate this. How did we go from bruised banana to this:(
Yellow kit >>> white kit

Henryo1492

Wow, incredible piece of writing, I laughed so much, well done😂, just hilarious

Gunner

Love it

Moff12

Yippee ki yay mutha fucka!!! Welcome to Arsenal John McClane.

Gunners4Life

Oh, great.. Walking Dead FC is going to go absolutely mental when they realize we decided to nick their kit design.

Swifty

Maybe it’s a homage to Sir Chips Ketchup? Apologies if this has already been mentioned… I’ll just grab my hat…..

Paul

Is it not a marble effect which hints at the marble halls?

John

who had a nose bleed over a plain white shirt?
