    Not bad. You know you have hit the big time when naturally occurring substances like oxygen want to be your shirt sponsor. Actually, considering who the guy is that makes oxygen, that's a pretty shrewd business move by the Gunners brass. :)

    Ok, just so this isn't completely a BS humor thread (the BS doesn't stand for Big Soccer), tell me whose kits you love, and whose kits you hate in the EPL??

    A kit I really like is Leeds away blue kits...very sharp. A couple of kits I am not too fond of are WHU and Aston Villa...all that fuscia, pink, or whatever it is, makes me nervous... :p

    Having a giant O is like a giant L

    ..ya but would you want the side you support to have a big fat goose egg on the front of your jersey?

    You gotta be kidding. Arsenals kits are the worst I have ever seen. I saw it it a Eurosport magazine and I burst out laughing. It is even 20 dollars less than all the other kits.

    If you mean the away kit, then you are correct. That is terrible. I have no problems with the home kit.

    I have to say that the new kit pales in comparison to last seasons. That kit ruled! But I know that I'll break down and get the new one with all the dressings.

    There should be a rule on BS where you cannot start a thread about kits unless you have a pic to post.

    Bad bad bad

    Not good.

    It's one thing giving the club huge amounts of money to have your name put on the front of the shirts.
    But I don't feel the entire shirt should be linked to the sponsor.

    Yes I know I sound like an proper 'stick in the mud', but frankly I don't think it's a trend that should continue. Even though I have my suspicions that it will.

    And I'm not clever enough to put a picture in directly but here's a link.

    If somebody GAVE me one I wouldn't wear it. I would cut the srest off of the jersey and sew it onto a T-shirt.

    I'm not a fan of the new kits this year and won't be buying one. The blue one is ridiculous and what the stripe across the lower back is about is anyone's guess. I liked the gold one last season, we should have kept that as we only had it for a year.

    I'll say the same thing I did about last year's gold kits: When you're winning, they all look good. Especially with those little gold patches on the sleeves.

    Okay, so we have established that everyone hates the Gunners away kits...but who else has kits that just make you wanna puke?? All biases aside...

    Also, every strip that Nike put out for MLS teams the first two years of MLS' existence.

    [Can't include more than two images in a post. Sorry for succession of messages.]

    I think ManU's golden kit was pretty snazzy. Which, of course, doesn't compel me one bit to like the team.

    The worst was Munich's away kit for the CL. It reminds me of the English kit at WC86(?), which was scientifically proven to be less visible from the corner of the eye (and certainly didn't help the very good English team of the time either). Stupid, stupid.

    Then there's ugly. Might as well ask Prada to make your kit (maybe some day David Beckham will).

    Of course, hommage to old-school is always appreciated (except for the fabric).

    Here's the new Real München BL away kit. Let the flame wars begin.

    I love Arsenal's home jersey from last season. Maybe cuz I'm one of the few sad Dreamcast owners left but that's besides the point. I really like Chelsea's blue jersey and Leeds white jersey. Blackburn needs a change and West Ham has to get rid of that nasty color scheme. This year's Arsenal though. . . . .don't like it. The away one I can't even put in words.

    I like Blackburn's home kits...their away blue is nice, except, I don't like the funky half-sleeves. It looks like they have improved on their road red shirts this year, too...even though you can't find their reds on the website at all...

    It's always great to see an expert - in this case a Wiz fan - weigh in on the subject of crappy kits. It really goes without saying, but your team looked like a bunch of effing clowns during their first several years of existence.
    http://www.wizardfan.com/history/uniforms.html

    (It's like when a Leeds fan offers his opinion about dirty players - you figure he's an expert, so listen to what he has to say.)

    Look, the new Arsenal away kits suck. I personally think Nike screwed them, and I'd be seriously pissed if I was an Arsenal big-wig and compared what they came up with for us versus what they designed for Man United. But no one team has a monopoly on crap kits. Arsenal have had worse in the past:

    So have Man United:

    Liverpool's new away kit is about as bad as Arsenal's:

    I'm not a big fan of Leeds yellow away jerseys this year. I'm coming around a bit on the new Liverpool aways, but I hated them at first.

    As bad as Arsenal's home and away kits are this year...in the last 10 years they have definately had better looking kits than Manure or Liverdrool (thanks to the early years with Addidas...don't know what they hell the designers for the other two teams did ....they had Addidas too!?!?!?).
