    The new kits

    ...remember the plain white shirt with just the cockerel, blue shorts and white socks? How good did that look.... All white for away...

    ...but, as with the players, it's all money and marketting now..paying money to marketing and branding 'gurus' (who don't actually know any more than you and me - but have the gift of the gab to convince those with the money that they do)....

    The way to stop all this crap is to cut the money supply. If you don't like the shirt, don't buy it - that will lead to a rapid redesign. I've said this before, but football is the only business where the customer is treated like an idiot. They (the ubiquitous they) push up the price of players - add that cost to ticket and merchandise prices and pass it on to their loyal supporters. AND the supporters take it. If your favourite breccy cereal provider constantly upped its price to pay for more and more elaborate packaging - but didn't actually improve the product, you'd move onto something else. BUT THEY (the men in grey) know that supporters won't move. What a nice business.

    As Danny Baker would say TURMOIL

    • Well put JL...don't like, don't buy...change will come quickly (basic economics their son!)

      I'm neither here nor there with the kit...I don't have to wear it week in and week out (although I'll probably have to hear about it when I'm around the New York Gooners that I know (yes, I know, fratenizing with the enemy...just call me a forward scout, checking on what the scum are saying inside the front lines...someone's gotta do it!).

      I'll go have another look at the shirt and see if I can make my mind up fully.
