Arsenal fans are incensed at next season's rumored new kit
Arsenal's home kit for next season is said to have leaked online, and Gunners fans are not happy.
If the leak is the real deal, it would mark the first time since 1899 that the North Londoners will wear blue shorts instead of their traditional whites. Oh, the horror!
It's important to note that none of the usual websites known to leak soccer kits have confirmed this, so these may very well be just a fan's mock-up. Nonetheless, the reaction has mostly ranged from displeasure to fiery rage.
If this is the kit next season we might as well not be Arsenal anymore. Nothing would remain of our club. https://t.co/zxHtOSK8Kq— Lee (@LeeSaundersAFC) April 6, 2016
@mikesanz19 please god no, it looks like USAs ice pop jersey during the World Cup— Brandon Laver (@gooner4life10) April 6, 2016
We have good news for you, though, Arsenal fan. Change is a good thing.
Remember when Germany and Argentina both swapped their traditional black shorts for white shorts ahead of the 2014 World Cup? Fans were equally skeptical back then, and then they just went on to cruise to the World Cup final.
When Barcelona announced last summer that their new kits would -- OMG -- sport horizontal stripes instead of vertical ones for the first time ever, you would've thought the world was ending. Yeah, they seem to be doing just fine.
So you see, Arsenal fans? You should actually be rooting for the blue shorts to be true. Next year could finally be the season it all turns around for you!
Then again, you are still Arsenal. No kit's gonna change that.
