Denis Hurley recently pointed out to me that on the Arsenal website they are stating that, bizarrely, the club will wear their yellow/redcurrant away kit against against Blackpool this weekend:
As the official Premier League handbook and the Arsenal site itself clearly state that the club’s third kit this season is last season’s navy strip it is very odd indeed that they are opting for the yellow kit that will clash with Blackpool’s tangerine – especially, as Denis points out, if there is bright sunlight.
The mystery deepens as I have been reliably informed that the kit room at the Emirates has never received a stock of the navy kits for this season, casting doubt as to whether this is an official third choice or not. In this day and age its madness that clubs can’t wear kits that clearly differentiate them from each other.
The Arsenal site has been known to get some of the finer details wrong when informing people of kit choices but on the whole it is pretty accurate.
So what will Arsenal wear? We wait with baited breath…
