18.49 – So, the new sponsor is….O2, who used to be called Cellnet, who used to sponsor Middlesboro’s stadium, who used er…..I dunno. Anyway, they’re paying £10m for a 2 year deal with an option to renew if they like.
Arsenal have also revealed the new home and away kits, here. I like the home kit I have to say, it’s quite ‘Ajax’ though. The away kit is a different bucket of phlegm altogether, what the hell is that about? It looks like some kind of 4 year old’s experiment with the gradient tool in Photoshop.
Call me old fashioned, but Arsenal’s away kit should be yellow and blue, not this vomitous mess. We’ve dabbled with blue away kits before, and they’ve been less popular than Osama Bin Laden at a New York fireman’s ball.
Finally for now, Bob has decided to have an operation on his cruciate ligament, so it looks like it’s gonna be 6 months before we see that master at work again. Buena suerte, Robert.
