Arsenal faced Colorado Rapids in the early hours of Tuesday morning and, while they won comfortably 3-0, the sight of the beautiful new Adidas home shirt emblazoned with yellow names and numbers was just awful.

I mean seriously, the kit was perfect. Arsenalโ€™s home colours are red and white, why on earth would you opt for yellow?

The good news is it seems this combination will only be used for pre-season which is borderline acceptable because I was about to go a little bit nuts over it. I do like to worry about the important things, you know?

Arsenal released their away kit today and many think the yellow name and numbers were a nod to that.

It is expected that the yellow away kit will feature blue names and numbers in a nod to the third kit.
