Remember to bring your scarves to tonight's Arsenal game


Just a quick reminder that anyone lucky enough to have tickets for tonight's game against Slavia Prague should try to bring along an Arsenal scarf to show your support for the team.

We all know how impressive it is to see the Liverpool crowd at Anfield holding their scarves aloft to acclaim their heroes, so it would be fantastic if we could replicate a similar scene at the Arsenal.

The club has been working with supporters groups to come up with ideas to enhance the atmosphere at the new stadium and anyone who has been to a game recently might have noticed that those in the Red Action area in the north west section of the ground all come armed with red and white bar scarves to create an imposing spectacle for the opposition fans and team.

If you have to travel to the game straight from work and you've forgotten to take a scarf from home, the club has discounted the price of the red and white bar scarves to £5. And seeing as you can't buy a beer at the stadium tonight, then that outlay prolly won't dent the wallet too much.

Arsenal are hoping that the idea will catch on with our midweek games in particular and are urging all fans to bring along a scarf to make fortress Dubaibury an intimidating place for teams to visit. Oh, and if any of my mates are reading this and don't have a scarf to take, give me a shout and I'll bring some extras.

Third shirt - huge hit, or off target?

The newly launched third shirt, available to pre-order here has caused much debate amongst Gooners. Some say it looks like an old Newcastle United away top, while others are angry at the club’s snubbing of our traditional change colours of yellow and blue.

It’s definitely one of the more controversial designs the Club have launched in recent seasons, with fans split on whether the design’s a hit or way off target.

The claret shirt worn by the team in our final season at Highbury was a huge hit sales-wise, and it’s clear the marketing department had this in mind with the launch of this new kit. And although it’s not as bad as some of these shirts many supporters are already calling for the famous yellow and blue strip to return.

Let us know your thoughts on the claret and navy change shirt by leaving your comments below and for an insight into a range of extraordinary kits from the past, check out Mof Gimmers’ piece on our sister site, WhoAteAllThePies.tv

Arsenal 1991-93 away strip fails to make Pie’s top 10 nasty prem kits

It was heartening to see Chelsea’s new vomit inducing day glow yellow away shirt make No.4 in the Pies recent Top Ten Nasty Premiership Kit. It yet again shows Chelski’s lack of class. However, I was even more surprised to see Arsenal’s second strip from 1991-93 fail to make the top 10.

It was the Gunner’s one momentary lapse in taste but the repeated blue ‘A’ motif set against Arsenal’s tradition away yellow colour was something of a psychedelic design abomination, harking back to the days of Ken Kesey’s ‘Magic Bus’. If you stared at the ‘zig-zag’ pattern long enough you’d swear it was turning green before your very eyes, man.

Of course Arsenal made history in 1992/93 by winning both the F.A Cup and Coca Cola Cup, but thankfully didn’t grace the hallowed Wembley turf wearing this design atrocity. Any Arsenal fan who bought this kit should be ashamed of themselves. Very, very ashamed.
