Mmm, that is about as good as a modern kit with a sponsor’s logo gets. It almost makes me jealous of Arsenal fans who get to wear it. Almost.
The PR eco waffle: “Every shirt is made entirely from recycled polyester, crafted from up to eight plastic water bottles as part of Nike’s ‘Considered Design’ programme, which sees discarded plastic bottles diverted from landfills to be used in the manufacturing process.”

Will Cesc Fabregas ever wear the kit in anger? It looks increasingly likely:
“I haven’t said that I will definitely leave Arsenal,” Fabregas told the Mirror.
“Everything is possible. Now I have my head and my focus on the World Cup. I am very proud to be captain of Arsenal and I love the club and have respect for them. It gave me much pride to be made captain.”
