Revealed – Arsenal’s snazzy new 2018 Third Kit

So we have the third of this season and maybe the last ever Puma Arsenal shirt depending on who the new sponsorship deal is with next season. So here it is, and I quite like it! Very translucent and snazzy….

Here is the bumph that Arsenal sent out with the announcement…

Together with kit partner PUMA, Arsenal has officially unveiled their 2018/19 third kit at an exclusive fan event on their pre-season tour of Singapore.

Arsenal stars Hector Bellerin, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Alexandre Lacazette and Petr Cech revealed the new kit on stage at The Esplanade in front of excited supporters.

The new shirt features a ‘W’ engineered into the shirt. The ‘W’ represents the attacking part of the famous WM formation introduced in the 1930s by Arsenal legend Herbert Chapman and is directly linked to the ‘M’ graphic from their new away shirt.

The shirt comes in a modern green base colour with navy detailing, reminiscent of the 1982/83 ‘Bluebottle’ kit. The accompanying shorts are in the same colours while the socks are also green with four navy hoops circling them.

The third kit was created using a seamless evoKNIT that provides a lightweight ‘second skin’ feel, designed to move in harmony with the player’s movements.

The new kit is on sale now via Arsenal Direct.

      But why is Héctor Bellerín in front?

      Feeling like a runway model, this is perhaps his last season at Arsenal to show if he wants to be a world class player at Arsenal or a runway model in Milan

    Horrible! Really liked last season’s black 3rd kit.

    Anyways, thinking of our starting XI next season

    —– Cech
    Licht – Mustafi – Mavropanos – Kolasinac
    ——- Torreira – Ramsey
    ————–Özil
    Mkhitaryan – Laca – Aubameyang

    Best thing is, I can imagine almost all positions being battled out. RB by Bellerin, CB’s by Sokratis and Holding/Chambers, LB by Monreal. Torreira and Ramsey by Xhaka and AMN. Iwobi for CAM, Welbeck and Nketiah/Nelson/SmithRowe.

    I do feel however we are still lacking a real winger. Iwobi himself has stated he’s played CAM through his youth, same with Mkhitaryan and Welbeck’s a striker. So we don’t have any pure wingers, apart from youngster Nelson.

    OT:I’ve seen some people here state that Emile Smith Rowe at 17years looked better than Jack Wilshere at 17years and I can’t help but think this is a complete lie.You can even ask Jeorge Bird who deals with the academy and stuff like that and he even said Wilshere was the most talented player he saw at our since he came to the academy.
    Smith Rowe is talented and I for one see him becoming world class but dont lie to yourself.
    The likes of Jay Emmanuel Thomas even looked better in the academy than him.Calm down and don’t hype the guy.He has completely nothing on Wilshere at the same age.

      “You can even ask Jeorge Bird who deals with the academy and stuff like that and he even said Wilshere was the most talented player he saw at our since he came to the academy”.

      Jeorge Bird hasn’t seen Emile Smith Rowe before making this statement. he said what he thought at that time , I’m sure he’d change his statement now.

      Wilshere for example is just 1.72

      But this boy at 17, is already 1.82.
      he uses both feet well unlike wilshere , he’s physically adept. a good dribbler, an eye for goal , great passer of the ball . He can play left midfield, central midfield and central midfield

      and unlike Jay Emmanuel Thomas, this boy is not just skillful. he has a football brain. have you even ever seen him play ? he plays with experience beyond his years. it’s suicidal even comparing Wilshere or JET to the world best (Emile Smith Rowe)

      if you think Wilshere is anything near this boy, then you know nothing about football .. stock to the fake transfer news you copy and paste

      1. kev

        Jeorge Bird answered this question when Wilshere left this season.He knows all of our academy players and far far better than you.
        Wilshere at 17 years is far far far better talent.Its not even close.
        What’s with me not knowing much about football and sticking to only fake transfer news?Nonsense!Youre a delusional person.Learn to respect yourself so others respect you.Im sure most of those who watched Wilshere and Smith Rowe at the same age will agree with me.

        1. Victoria Concordia Crescit

          Lol KEV you are such a disgrace . Jeorge Bird started watching youth games regularly in 2006 and I can confirm this . you must be a fool to even think Wilshere was better than CESC Fabregas.This was Jeorge Bird’s tweet

          Wilshere undoubtedly the best player I’ve seen for Arsenal at youth level and will take something very special to beat that. Sad that he’s leaving but he has to move on for the sake of his career.

          and he’s only human , his opinion was Jack Wishere is the best players he’s ever seen at youth level for Arsenal . he never saw Fabregas . judging by this, Jeorge Bird was just trying to pay homage to Wilshere

          1. kev

            This is absolute nonsense.We are talking of playrs who came through our academy from the get go and Fabregas came later.He wasn’t there as a child.He came from Barca and will always remain a Catalona.
            I never ever compared Wilshere to Fabregas but compared him to Smith Rowe.Also I already knew Jeorge Bird started watching matches from 2006.You speak so much nonsense I can’t even believe it.This is not even an opinion but the truth is Wilshere at 17years old was twice the player Smile Smith Rowe is.Note I said at 17 years.

            1. Phil

              Kev-just calm down mate.You don’t need to try and defend yourself all the time.Nobody really cares too much about anything if it doesn’t involve the first team squad.The academy is important but until they break through like AMN last season and glimpses of Reiss and Eddie then we really don’t care that much mate.Too many youngsters flatter to deceive at an early age so let’s just take it as it comes with academy players.We have far too much to think about with the first team at the moment

    2. Kilted Gooner

      And??
      What does it matter how talented Wilshere was at 17? He is now 26 and has left the club…
      Lets hope Emile doesn’t replicate jacks career in any way!

      1. kev

        Give a player his due.The truth is Wilshere at 17 years old was twice as talented as Smith Rowe.Im not talking of the current Wilshere neither is he.
        Trust me it’s not even close.You can simply ask Jeorge Bird that between Wilshere and Smith Rowe at 17 years who does he think was better?
        He won’t even have to answer.Its common sense.

          1. Declan

            And stop calling other people a liar and that you are the only one speaking the truth. They are opinions as is yours. There is no lie and truth. I saw Jack as a kid and and now I’m seeing this kid. Both really good but Jack ended up injury prone and also had some bad character flaws which hopefully Smith-Rowe can avoid. There is one difference though, he doesn’t end up on his backside like Jack does.

    3. jon fox

      A major problem Wilshere always had was his small stature and relative lack of actual power , when playing in the centre of midfield , where power, speed and height are all huge advantages, all other things like pure skill being equal. Smith -Rowe is far bigger than Jack and has that as a distinct advantage over him. So many of our midfield players in the last decade or more have been relative dwarfs and so many of them also injury prone. To my mind, that is NOT coincidence and most of the very best in world football midfield of TODAYS new generation, ARE bigger than in years gone by. Many seem to overlook this salient point, just as Wenger did too.

    “A modern green base colour”.
    Really?
    To me it looks Anemic,
    Insipid, weak vapid.
    Looks like a shirt looks after a hundred washes.

    1. barryglik

      The only Arsenal away kit
      colour I have ever liked
      is the Yellow shirt
      blue shorts combo.
      My favourite is the Nike 2003/04 O2 Yellow with blue shorts.
      Some of the JVC yellow kits were good too.
      May be cause we won more in those kits?

      1. ozilking

        as for me my best away kit ever is the 06/07 wine red and gold colored nike kit.very unique and stylish .pair it up with a white/blue shorts and ur gud to go

    2. jon fox

      I agree. I might even say we look “washed out” in that insipid pastel shade, more suited to models than footballers.

  4. Goonermay68

    Remember the times when ARSENAL SAID only changing kits every other season ? well thats gone now.personally i do not like this kit. But have bought previous two this season for my Grandson AND thats what grandads do !!so will be going online later 🙄

      Nonsense!Imagine saying Smith Rowe is better than Wilshere at 17years when it’s not true.Its not even close.So close yet too far.
      Far far better prospect.Even at U18 Jeorge Bird has constantly said Trae Coyle is the best player but for injury Arsenal fans would know much about him.The difference between him and Smith Rowe is is that he’s just very very injury prone but equal level of talent if not more.

    2. barryglik

      We can but hope
      Smith-Rowe is the goods.
      Every season there are 50 “wonder kids”
      bursting on to the scene in pre-season.
      The majority of the senior pros are simply ambling at half pace
      knocking the ball about going through the motions in games where tackling is forbidden.
      The youngsters are highly strung hurling themselves around in mad excitement.
      If they do any thing vaguely interesting by the next day
      they are touted as the next (insert club legend).
      Happens all the time.
      Last season it was Reiss Nelson and AMN who were
      gonna tear the league a new one.
      The season before Reinne Adelaide did a Johan Cruyff turn
      and the world stood still.
      A few years ago Wenger told us Zelalem was an exceptional talent.
      Before him Chamberlain, Szczesny, Wilshere, 16 year old Walcott.
      Now Guendouzi is a Genius, Smith Rowe a champion and Joel Lopez is world class
      and that 5 year old kicking a ball around in the McDonald’s play area is Messi all over.
      Sign him up now 🙂

      1. Victoria Concordia Crescit

        well I have every confidence that Emile Smith Rowe is gonna make us all proud because he’s being coached by Wenger . those boys you mentioned earlier are all good but unfortunately, Wenger was past it during their time

  6. Victoria Concordia Crescit

    Lol KEV you are such a disgrace . Jeorge Bird started watching youth games regularly in 2006 and I can confirm this . you must be a fool to even think Wilshere was better than CESC Fabregas.This was Jeorge Bird’s tweet

  7. Victoria Concordia Crescit

    KEV
    Why do you keep mentioning Jeorge Bird ? his he a god of some sorts? can’t you watch games yourself and have your own opinion ?
    if wenger said Ronaldo is better than Messi, does it really mean that ? it’s just a man opinion you delusional fool

  8. BenardoM

    Every one here has his own point of view regarding”Who is better between” Wilshire and Emil Smith Rowe.Let’s respect each one’s choice.

  9. Victoria Concordia Crescit

    Kev
    The difference between you and I is I watch these kids but you on the other hand follow tweeter pages and paste other people opinion . CESC Fabregas and Jay Emmanuel Thomas had more potential than Jack at the same age .

  10. Victoria Concordia Crescit

    kev
    Lol on what grounds do you say Wilshere was twice the player Emile Smith Rowe is at the same age . Don’t tell me it’s because Jeorge Bird says so.

  11. Victoria Concordia Crescit

    KEV
    Tell me what Wilshere possesed at 17 that EMILE SMITH ROWE doesn’t have ? I’m going to tell you many things Rowe possesses and Wilshere didn’t have at 17 and even now. Wilshere had potential right, but he was lucky we were in need of CM during his breakthrough year

  12. Gifted

    I am not sure who is the better of the youngsters at 17.
    .I just hope Emile Smith is gonna have a better career than Jack….Were it not for injuries, Jack would be the level of Iniesta now…As for Emile Smith, he is clearly talented and with good coaching he can be the next big thing…With age catching up with the likes of Ozil, I think we have a ready replacement

  13. BenardoM

    I think for now we should appreciate what we have”Emil Smith Rowe”.All past is history

  14. ruelando

    I will say it again, do not compare Wilshere with this young man, yes Wilshere was brilliant growing up, but this is Emile Smith Rowe, shows better football maturity at his age. What do i mean by that, well ESR contributes to all area of the field, does not give in to the urge of taking on ever one , like most young fledgeling, but more appropriately chooses the correct time to do. He already has good decision making which will be further enhance playing more matches with is seniors.

    1. ruelando

      OOO the third kit, looks ok, wearing it with dark blue shorts does enhance it. Anyone who has bought the kit and do not like it can send it to me.

  15. Innit

    Love the colour. But honestly as long as we win trophies, I don’t care if we wear pink, orange, yellow or wearing their birthday suits.

  16. jon fox

    What a shame they have chosen , IMO, the five most facially ugly players we have to model this non- Arsenal coloured shirt.
