Arsenal forced to make an interesting kit alteration against PSV

Arsenal is reportedly set to wear a mashup of their home and away jersey when they face PSV in the Europa League this week to avoid a shirt mixup, according to Sun Sport.

The Gunners and the Dutchmen will face off as two of the top sides in their Europa League group as Mikel Arteta’s men look to make it five wins from five matches in the group stages.

They beat Ruud van Nistelrooy’s side in the reverse of this fixture last week and they will be keen to repeat the trick in this penultimate group game.

The report reveals Arsenal will wear their black and gold away top alongside their white and red striped home shorts.

This is necessary because their home and away kits are similar to that of the Dutchmen and could cause confusion.

Just Arsenal Opinion

This is not the first time we have been forced to wear a similar mashup and it shouldn’t be a big deal.

The most important thing is that the players understand the need to win the game.

We cannot drop points against PSV even though we have already secured passage to the next round of the competition.

It will be interesting to see how this bizarre kit selection will turn out on our players.

  1. The PSV home shirt is Red and White vertical stripes, their away shirt is Black and their third strip is Blue. Why can’t they play in their home kit and us in Black, or they wear Black and we wear Pink? Anyone care to explain?

    1. Perhaps I can help with that.

      Strange as it may seem, this is about what it looks like on a black-and-white TV.

      The powers that be in football believe that there’s still a significant number of B&W sets in use around the world and football is a global game, especially European competition.

      I’m not saying that’s right or wrong, by the way, I’m just relaying the views of the powers that be, so please don’t shoot the messenger! 🙂

      1. Thanks for your thoughts on this IDKWIC but can’t help thinking Black shirts v Pink shirts should provide enough contrast on a b/W tv? Anyway, it is what it is, as you say.
