There’s been a mixed reaction to Arsenal’s 2017/18 home kit

Arsenal launched their 2017/18 home kit and it got a mixed reaction on social media

Another day, another kit launch.

Arsenal unveiled their latest threads at London’s King’s Cross Station and the buzz word was ‘collar’.

PUMA’s design features a collar for the first time since 2006, when Arsenal finished as runners up to Barcelona in the Champions League.

The shade of red is darker than last season’s but ‘replicates the red from the club’s crest’ so Arsenal fans won’t have to worry about too much change.

There’s also a cannon on the reverse of the shirt, celebrating 50 years of the cannon being featured on the home kit.

But what about the fans?

After all, they’re the ones who’ll be shelling out their hard earned cash to look like their idols.

It’s fair to say the reaction was mixed. Let’s start with the good news.

You can’t please everyone.

As kits go it’s very unoffensive, and it’ll look good on Olivier Giroud regardless of weather you’re #CollarIn or #CollarOut.

Whether it looks quite as good on a rotund fan lurking in the back of an Arsenal Fan TV video is another question.

By the time Arsenal lose to Leicester on the first day of the season everyone will have completely forgotten about the kit.
