Hopefully Nike has the option to match any offers Arsenal gets...

If nothing else, it'll fill the Arsenal coffers.

Not that they bother spending the money they already have. :mad: </Gooner>

Dear Adidas, please leave the sleeve stripes at home.

Arsenal to Adidas...

A lot of Arsenal fans will remember Adidas as a good manufacturer for Arsenal in the past. The George Graham years were all in Adidas, and most had the sleeve stripes.

I doubt Nike would do so, given that Arsenal are not guaranteed Champions League football. They've been on the decline for a decade nearly now, albeit a slow decline, and Spurs certainly could finish above Arsenal, with others catching them as well. (Not that Nike only sponsors CL teams, but the kind of money Arsenal will want reduces its value to Nike. And it's worth remembering that Nike have Man Cityfrom next season, and Adidas have lost Liverpool now.)

Adidas usually does really well with their top-level teams (see the German national team and Chelsea) so I'll approach this with cautious optimism. Arsenal would certainly look better if they stuck with Nike, though.

Im expecting a chelsea style conservative approach for The Gunners than a radical Lyon approach

You can't really get much more radical than this season's Arsenal road kit.

Not really. It's just a hooped jersey.

Bert, ermagherd, ert's perpler!

Seriously, it's purple/black hoops. It's actually pretty subtle, and looks quite nice.

The Gunners have been blessed with a series of pretty good home kits during the Nike era (save the one that wasn't an Arsenal shirt at all), along with horrible change kits.

Not that Adidas has done spectacularly well by its clubs during this period, but they've produced a couple nice kits for Chelsea.

Recent change kits for Arsenal have been very nice. I, for one, love the purple/black, and I also really, really liked the yellow/maroon.

(this goes for all their work) I think Adidas should try to make the three stripes a bit more subtle, maybe try an iridescent effect?

Maybe they'll bring these back:

That last home shirt is by Nike and is the best looking one of the kits.

If Ajax can keep the 3 stripes off the sleeves, Arsenal should be able to do the same. Even though Ajax has them for Europe, at times they have kept them off their league kits.

Yes, it is, and yes it is, and it's exactly why I'm very nervous about this switch. Nike has had a couple duds, but even those were better than the deliberately-cluttered shirts produced by Adidas.

Let's be clear on this: Arsenal hasn't left Nike yet. Arsenal's deal is coming up and they're doing what they can to extract the most out of their next deal. Manchester United is doing the exact same thing. It's also standard practice for these contracts to include matching rights clauses, giving Nike a chance to match any offer.

I'm not saying it won't happen. But at this point I don't see it as anything other than speculation.

With one size hoops on the body and another size on the sleeves along with a bold swatch of another color.

Having said all that, i actually really like them. Although, i liked the yellow/maroon one from the previous season better.
