I've always been a fan of Arsenal away strips in yellow and blue and this one fits the bill just perfectly. I'm sure the launch will be a spectacular event later today and sales of the new kit will probably be very good too. I haven't been the biggest fan of many of the kits Nike have come up with but at least their last one is a good one.
The wait to see the team in the new strip shouldn't be too long with the fourth league game of the season being a trip to Sunderland. With Sunderland wearing red Arsenal will have to put on their new yellow and blue one for what could be the first time. There is of course a chance the team will get to wear it in the away leg of their Champions League qualifier and I'd be shocked if it didn't make an appearance in a per season friendly or two.
My earliest memory of Arsenal is winning the FA Cup in 1971 in those colours and so many other great moments have come in yellow and blue too. Hopefully it's an omen of things to come this season and the club can return to their trophy winning ways. For the moment enjoy the photo and look forward to seeing the players wearing it next season.
I'd like to give credit to whoever first posted the photo but that's never an easy thing with so many retweets doing the rounds. I first saw it posted by @FantasyYirma but I'm sure he got it from elsewhere.
That's it for today.
See you tomorrow.
