"It was the winter holiday and I was back in Togo having a kickabout with friends when my phone rang.One of the boys answered it and said, 'Manu, it's Arsene for you'. 'Arsene who?' I said. 'Arsene Wenger', he said. 'Get out of it', I said, and grabbed the phone off him. But then I heard the voice. 'Allo'. F*****g hell. It is Arsene Wenger!"

I Doubt Arsenal Will Wear The Black Jersey In The CL Final

ArsenalTalk recently came out with an article that stated that Arsenal will be wearing a black jersey for our champions league final match against Barcelona. The reason was said to be because Barcelona wanted to wear their orange away kit which will clash with both the redcurrant home kit and the away yellow kit. This is most probably fake for the following reasons:

1. I doubt any team, even Barca, would want to play in their away! The main reason why UEFA has a coin toss in deciding which side will wear their home kit is because both sides will always want to wear their home kit.

2. Barca away kit is neon yellow not orange.

3. If the jersey does clash with both our home and our away kit, we have a blue 3rd kit that we use for this sort of problems.

4. A black jersey will be bad because most of the crowd will not own the jersey thus resulting in Arsenal fans looking more like Barca fans.

This is what the so-called final jersey looks like:
