Arsenal sign 30M a year kit deal with Puma

8 05 2013

After months of speculation it has finally come to light that Arsenal will be severing their 20 year connection with Nike when the current kit deal expires in 2014.

It has long been suspected that the Gunners would make the switch to Adidas if a new deal couldn’t be agreed with Nike however it would seem they have been pipped to the post by rivals Puma with a staggering 30 million plus a year deal potentially worth 170M over the 5 year course of the contract.

This deal will dwarfs Liverpool’s 25mill a year arrangement with Warrior and see the Gunners sitting top of the tree for kit deals in English sport.

The news of this massive new kit deal follows hot on the heels of Emirates renewing their sponsorship of Arsenal with a bumper new deal.

 

Happy times fellow gooners, happy times ūüôā

Bye bye ‘King’ Kenny

16 05 2012

Well it would seem that the reign of¬†“King Kenny” has ¬† not been quite the roaring success that ‘Pool fans were hoping for.

A Carling cup win and the runner up spot in the FA cup haven’t really made up for a disappointing 8th place finish in the Premiership.

Kenny was summoned to Boston to account for the clubs poor showing and after a meeting today where his future was left unclear it is being widely reported that Kenny will be leaving the club immediately.

Assuming that the scouse saviour  does indeed end up out in the cold my money would be on Roberto Martinez to take the reins.





Eboue joins Galatasaray

17 08 2011

After a Summer of ongoing negotiation and suggestion we finally see the career of one of Arsenal’s more colourful characters come to an end.

I refer of course to former boo boy Emmanuel Eboue. It wont have come as a surprise to many fans that time was being called on Eboue’s tenure at the Emirates and the Liverpool penalty incident was no doubt the final nail in the coffin of ¬†the once promising Ivorian.

As is always the way with Arsenal the exact details of his move to Turkish giants Galatasaray are being kept firmly under wraps but it is believed that a fee of between 3 and 5 million has been/will be paid.

Eboue’s departure heavily suggests the Arsenal new boy Carl Jenkinson will be deputising for regular right back Bakary Sagna in the forthcoming season.
