While it may have been announced a little while ago the new Arsenal away kit officially goes on sale today. For those who have been living in a cave for the past month or so (I’m looking at you Travis Johnstone) the new Arsenal kit is a dark blue number with pinstripes and I have to admit I’m quite a fan. A few people have commented that it looks a bit like a golf shirt but I think it looks great.
If you’re like me and you like the look of the new away kit modeled so beautifully by Cesc Fabregas then you can order it at Kitbag today.
Aside from there’s a little bit going on.
Away kit model Fabregas’ Spain succumbed to a shock 2-0 loss to the USA that broke their 15-game winning streak and saw them miss out on a place in the Confederations Cup final at the Americans expense. Both goals were a bit calamatous from a Spanish point of view and the result means we’ve been denied the possibility of a Spain v Brazil game that would have been quite an event. Fair play to the USA though, they’ve been brilliant since the Egypt game and have really brought something to the tournament.
Brazil play South Africa in the other semi-final tonight and I will be watching.
Moving on and everybody’s favourite agent Stephane Courbis has been at it again, claiming that a “very important team” is after Emmanuel Adebayor. He went on to say that neither Manchester United, Chelsea or Milan have shown any interest and if he’s telling the truth – which is highly debatable, mind you – it might well be Real Madrid who are this so-called “important” team. It seems about the right environment for a man with a stinky attitude and with the sort of cash that Florentino Perez is throwing around it’s certainly a possibility. Either way, I sincerely hope Courbis shuts up soon because he irritates me beyond belief.
Anyway, I might leave it there in a bit of a brief one. Enjoy your Thursday and I’ll speak to you tomorrow.
