2009/10 Away Kit – Green
Rumours are hitting cyber space, and once a rumour is repeated on two sources, it becomes fact, that Arsenal’s new away kit for next season will be green.
Traditionally Arsenal have worn a yellow away top, though in recent years with the advent of marketing (ripping the fans off) we have expanded beyond the tradition. We have had blue kits (1994/95, 1995/96, 2002/03, 2004/05), a gold top (2001/02) and a white one (2007/08). The recent trend has been to make the current away kit into the following year’s 3rd kit (which we rarely use).
From 1969/70 until 1993/94 our away kit has been predominantly green except for the 1982/83 season, when someone in the marketing department had a brainstorm and decided on a green shirt with blue sleeves. This was a shock to our system back then and would be a shock again, but fans being fans they will flock to the Arsenal stores and buy them in the thousands, only to realise we will wear it for one season.
