Arsenal finally revealed their 2017/18 home kit on Wednesday morning and the launch proved that most fans don’t actually care about a new shirt if there are no new players to wear it.
While a lot of fans like Arsenal’s new kit, most weren’t that excited considering they believe that bringing out a shiny, new kit should be the least of the club’s worries after last season.
However, what did we learn from the Gunners’ kit launch?
5. Transfer window makes Gooners anxious
There’s nothing quite like a transfer window in which one or two key players could actually leave to put Gooners on the edge of an anxiety attack for four months straight.
With Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez appearing to stall over new deals and the Chilean being heavily linked with Bayern Munich and Manchester City, Arsenal fans are a little jumpy right now. Therefore, any ‘signs’ that either could be leaving this summer send us over the edge.
For example, on Wednesday morning, Ozil and Alexis weren’t included in the PUMA promotional image for the new kit. However, considering they’re sponsors are Adidas and Nike, this isn’t really a surprise.
Plus, they were included in Arsenal’s official promotional image.
Then, if you chose to order the shirt on the club’s website, both Danny Welbeck and Alexis were listed under the number seven.
This seems to have just been a genuine mistake, which has now been fixed.
