    Hmmm…really can’t make up my mind. I like C and D as they’re from when I got into football, but I also like J as I likes the extension of the white sleeves down the sides of the top. I also like M for it’s simple, clean lines and I like the redcurrant one as it was a nice touch.

  2. Denis Hurley Says:

    A is obviously the classic one, but I like J too as it’s what they wore when I started supporting

    a by a mile,proper arsenal and the away kit from the same period was good too!a cup final classic.

    Didn’t know you were an Arsenal fan Denis?

    I can’t decide between the classic round neck 70s home (a) or the late 80s adidas top (e). I do have fond memories of the redcurrent shirt though as it was one of the last kits I illustrated for True Colours volume 1 and it created such interest in football kits when it was launched.
    My least favourite has to be m – I really wasn’t that keen on that particular Nike template.

    Hi John,

    yeah I kept that quiet – bit of a source of embarrassment for me at the moment ;)

    Actually meant to say E and not J – started supporting them in 1990, had that shirt with a no 10 on the back, Merse was my favourite player.

    I presume you’ve seen the pics of the 09-10 away today? Blue might not be the most popular of away kit colours but i quite like this kit

    Sorry for the delay with those pics of the Melchester away, digital camera still playing up :(

    You musn’t be embarrassed Denis! Paul Merson was always one of my favourite players too – in fact, I modelled my hairstyle at the time on his 1989-90 barnet!

    I really like the new away kit – I know yellow is the preferred Arsenal change colour but they do seem to suit blue as well.

    Looking forward to the Rovers pics – I’ve got one new away kit to add which I hope to do on Friday.
