Shirts for 2007/08: Arsenal (away / 2nd)

Just for a change, today's new Premier League shirt for the 2007/08 season is not made by Umbro. Instead it's Nike's latest offering that Arsenal will be wearing for the majority of their upcoming away games...



As you can see, it's white. Nothing wrong with that, you might think, but it appears to have turned a few heads in North London - not least by the Tottenham Hotspur fans who claim their most ardent rivals are now wearing the same colour as them.

Personally, I feel such teasing is inconsequential. It's actually a pleasant change to see Arsenal wearing a 2nd shirt that isn't yellow or blue (good though they've been on many occasions) and it looks even better when married up with the redcurrant shorts (that's the colour, not the material they're made from).

Yes this is the new Arsenal away shirt made by Nike to honour Herbert Chapman, manager of The Gunners between 1925 and 1934. Chapman was seen as an innovator on all levels and is widely acknowledged as being the man who laid the foundations that made Arsenal one of the biggest clubs in the world today.

The shirt is currently available to pre-order from the Arsenal website and will go on sale from July 5th, priced £40.00.

All of which leaves us with one question: what do you think of it? Cast your vote below or leave us a comment - we'd love to hear what you think.
