"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!"

White Kit: Why NOT to go psycho...

Since Arseblogger confirmed the new away white kit everyone has being going crazy with discontent, anger, disappointment with Nike....pretty much everything negative. But why? Tell me gooners, what makes us better than the spuds? Is it because we wear red and white instead of just plain white? Or is it because we have won 13 league titles and 10 FA Cups?

I definitely would not care even if we wear that butt ugly green kit Liverpool had in the 90's as long as we win some titles. Kits do not make a team good or bad. Arsenal will always be the red and white army and the spuds will always be the team OUTSIDE the top 4!

Tell me, if we win the league next season, will anyone care what kit we wore when we won the title? Probably not.

If anyone is unhappy about us wearing white, then just dont buy it. I certainly wont, not because of the spuds but because its just plain ugly(just look at those clown socks!)!
But we should remember that this isnt the good old days where only football fans buy kits. Kits are a part of fashion and Nike want to sell kits that EVERYONE will buy. Just think of it this way, the more kits they sell, the more cash they will have to cough up when its time to renew the sponsorship contract with us.

So, dont buy the kit if you hate it, but dont blame the club for this kit, its a simple mathematical equation that the club can do nothing about:

Arsenal want= $$$
Nike have= $$$
Nike want= PROFIT
Nike + Arsenal + Fashionable White Kit = Lots of PROFIT for Nike and lots of $$$ for Arsenal!

When Arsenal signed a contract with Nike, the lost all their rights in picking what colour the away kits are. Thats all.
