The leaked image of Arsenal’s new away shirt

Without big breaking news, huge transfers and live games, the soccer ‘silly season’ is in full flow. As a result, one of the most anticipated news snippets in the summer is the first view of a team’s new kit. Quite often they provide the ‘water cooler talk’, whether it’s a stylish strip or a garish attempt, such as Liverpool’s this season.

Next up in the kit unveiling stakes is Arsenal. While their new away kit hasn’t actually yet been revealed, we’ve caught a glimpse of what is reported to be the new shirt. Just click below to see the eye-catching attempt.

Yep. Nike’s final season with Arsenal has allowed them to pull out all the stops. It’s a pretty simple design but it certainly draws attention. We like it, even the smart addition of the buttons and collar!

The shirt will be officially unveiled on Tuesday. Who knows, we could soon see the likes of Gonzalo Higuain in it too.

Gerd Mueller gets Messi’s No. 10 Barcelona shirt

Lionel Messi paid homage to another fellow football legend, German striker Gerd Mueller, by sending a signed Barcelona shirt to the former Bayern Munich star.

Bayern released a photograph Thursday with Mueller holding the shirt. Messi wrote on the shirt: ”To Gerd Mueller, with respect and admiration, a hug.”

Messi scored 91 goals last year, breaking Mueller’s 40-year-old record. Mueller scored 85 goals in 1972.
