Purple Pain – Arsenal release new away kit

12 07 2012

Morning to everyone from a very, wet, windy and un-summer like Ireland.
The rain really is lashing down sideways, still at least it isn’t purple.

Nope that honour is reserved for the newly unveiled Arsenal away kit for 2012/2013.
What is there to say about this that isn’t blatantly obvious? Not a lot really, it is really, really, really purple.

The only mitigating factor is that at least it isn’t the bright, radioactive pink which our keepers will be proudly sporting away from home. Wow is that thing bright, It is a good thing that young Szcz is so secure in his own masculinity. 

In what is a rather odd move even Nike have come out and stated that the kit is rubbish – literally.

The new kit which the lads seem so happy to be sporting  is manufactured from Nike’s ground-breaking recycled polyester, making it their most environmentally friendly kit ever produced, reducing energy consumption by up to 30 per cent compared to traditional polyester.

Can’t say it will be high on my shopping list this Summer….

Mmmmmh M’Vila

9 05 2012

 According to T’internet and the tabloids Arsenal have agreed a club record fee in excess of £16 million for very highly rated French international Yann M’vila.

 Anyone who has stuck their head out from under a rock in recent seasons will have heard the rumours that we were interested in/were going to sign/were trying to tempt with hookers the 21 year old enforcer who currently plys his trade in ligue 1 with Rennes.

 This time though things seem a bit more promising than the usual scuttlebutt. The normally reliable French football specialist Julien Laurens, has claimed both on Twitter and Le Parisien that M’Vila has agreed a four year deal to bring him to the Emirates.

Normally I try not to get excited about possible signings as year in year out we see ourselves linked with everyone and their dog. But this is one signing that I think would show a real statement of intent from the club.

Not only is M’Vila a very “Wengeresque” signing but he would offer genuine competition for Alex Song and coupled with the early capture of Lukas Podolski would show a real statement of intent which may well help swing the decisions of RVP and Walcott when it comes to signing on the dotted line.

Fingers crossed that some serious lessons have been learnt from last Summer’s business dealings and that this Summer will have less of a resemblance to a re-run of Supermarket Sweep.
