Arsenal have revealed their new 2017/18 home kit and, honest to goodness, you’d be hard-pressed to notice.

The strip was officially unveiled as part of a “live activation” at Kings Cross station on Wednesday morning, with Robert Pires and Martin Keown showing up to do the honours…

Basically, it’s a so-tight-it’s-almost-internal red Puma shirt with white block sleeves and a button collar – almost indistinguishable from any other Arsenal home kit of the last five years.

Regardless, we’re assured that the jersey is actually a very slightly darker shade of red than last season’s offering, with the particular hue drawn from the right side of the club’s crest, rather than the usual left.

It’s nice enough, but still – ho hum.

Still, Arsenal fans will no doubt be gladdened to see both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil used in the publicity shots.

That usually only means one thing: they’ll both be off by August!

    Dunno why you’re getting arsey about the shirt just being red with white sleeves. The last time the shirt wasn’t just red with white sleeves was back in 2010, and then everyone complained because it wasn’t just red with white sleeves.

    Fucked if they do, fucked if they don’t.

    Predictable, uninspiring and outdated… and thats just the Arsenal manager

    ugly AF just like all Puma kits…. never liked a collar on a football shirt as it doesnt project a sporty image, and you’re wright- the ultra tight fit is awful, they look like a cycling team. i can see sanchez’s pancreas in that pic

    It looks like the players are earing an actual white shiet under the new jersey… i hope it’s not a Spurs one
    Oopsie!
