Here’s a leaked photo of Arsenal’s old-school home shirt for the 2010/2011 season. It’s an homage to the kit worn by the Gunners in their Double-winning season of 1970-71. Maths fans amongst you will have figured out that next season is the 40th anniversary of that Double; it’s also the club’s 125th anniversary.

Even as a Spurs fan, I have to say it’ll be great to see a classic Arsenal kit in use again. It’s a beautiful shirt. Now if only they could ditch that obtrusive sponsor’s logo, eh.

Word is that the away kit next season will also go retro, with yellow shirts and blue shorts.
