Arsenal to announce Puma deal on Monday?

Arsenal puma kit

It looks as though Arsenal will publicly announce the club’s new kit deal with Puma on Monday with invitations to a ‘special media conference’ dropping in press email inboxes this morning.

The club have thus far stubbornly refused to comment on reports of a new long-term commercial partnership, likely because of contractual responsibilities with current provider Nike, despite images appearing months ago of Thierry Henry and the current squad modelling the new kit and training gear.

The Puma deal, which ends a 20-year relationship with Nike, is understood to be worth £30 million a year over five years and will kick-in at the end of this season.

Last month Arseblog News confirmed details of the new kits revealing our third shirt will involve a blue and lime colour combination.

A few of the leaked images below…

Let’s hope they don’t bring an actual puma to the presser… we have enough problems with injuries as it is.

rNadOm

made me actually lol

Heroldgoon

Surely with its pace, Puma must be the like for like replacement for Theo?

gooner odst

If he ain’t on youtube, he ain’t worth a single pounce…i mean pence.

Swede

Rumors are that they will bring in famous actress Puma Swede to announce the new kit. How this will affect the injury situation is difficult to predict…

ThaatArsenalGuy

Haha, “actress”

Chrispy

I feel cheap knowing exactly who you’re on about.

The boardroom sent back numerous reports of blood-pressure related pains, but, after four hours, no major injuries were sustained

dahveedoff

I snorted quite loudly in the office! brilliant comment

Eiregun

Now I have get rid of my Nike gear, it’s not cheap being an arsenal fan 😉

Andrew

No reason to stop wearing the Nike stuff w/Puma coming on board. 2010/11 shirt is still one of the most beautiful things I own. 🙂

Merlin's Panini

It’s one of the only good shirts Nike made for us in my opinion.

dan

I loved the burgundy in 2007..

Dial Square

Yep, still my favourite shirt, too.

Tiger Tadgh

Can’t wait for the Cameroon-esque tank tops

DL Gooner

I don’t like the look of that top with the zipper neck that Giroud is wearing in the first pic. If it doesn’t look good on him what chance do the rest of us have. The team are playing that well at the moment they could be wearing red and white potato sacks and i wouldn’t give a shit.

Muse

Love the close fitted style of Puma tops, but I’m guessing there are going to be quite a few fans buying several sizes larger.

Hope both the white/yellow splat and the red/purple kits are just training ones

Jammathon

I just don’t think I can stomach this. Arsenal have always been associated with Nike throughout their 100+year history. What am I to do?

Except when they were with Adidas of course.

AFC

Clearly, this must be a fake. Where is the 1970 Fairs Cup? 🙂

Tony

and umbro… Nike only started in 1994. Who cares, a change is good for everyone.

Sam

Or Umbro…

dutchgunner

First january signing despite Wenger claiming otherwise?

Why is my name required

Ahh…i can look all manly with these tight puma shirts and bring home a few chicks

Bucks

I don’t think a beer belly has the same effect as a 6 pack, guess most of us our out of luck. 🙁

(on the other hand, Ludivine Sagna pics next year will be out of this world.

Bucks

our/are apology. Also ) comes at the end obviously.

BringBackSeaman

Who would you let in your house party, the lad with the six pack, or the bloke with a keg?

Scribe

Depends a lot on if that bloke is Bacary Sagna or not.

Gutbukket Deffrolla

You’ll never meet women down on the farm, even if it is free range.

Gooner Dave

Obviously stomachs like mine weren’t taken into consideration

Possession

Nike will be regretting this big time in the future…….ARSENAL ARE BACK and our famous red and white shirts will be shown parading trophies around the world on tv for years to come without the iconic swoosh.
They’ll be fucking kicking themselves !
GOOD….

Yellow splat on white looks horrible. Like a bird having a massive diarrhea on a Tottenham kit

Shorts are pulled up fairly high as well. That is what I like to call “cowell-esque”

Emmanuel Eboue In Space

Is the splat in the shape of Islington?

Dial Square

Don’t worry, it all looks like training/fan kit. Though, we have had some pretty shit-looking kit down the years…

Parisian Weetabix

Could be worse. At least the diarrhea hides the fact it looks like a Tottenham kit.

Phlegm-ini

Improved it in fact. After all, shit = tottenham

indiangooner

Special conference on monday to showcase our new signing, Juan Mata..!!!
Ohh someone please hijack Utd-Mata deal.
Its just WRONG..!!!
They need to rot for another couple of season. Someone stop it plsssss…

WengersNoseHair

You must be seriously deluded if you think Mata can stop the rot at Old Travesty.

deano

Desperation signing there defence has a big hole in it. Don’t see how he solves that problem.

Arsepedant

Yes, Moyes really wasn’t thinking clearly there (I know, I’m being redundant again). Mata plays exactly the some role and position as Rooney. He’ll never be able to fit both of them on the pitch at the same time without one or the other’s being in an unfamiliar position.

Maybe it was done with the knowledge that Rooney is leaving at the end of the season?

Sos

Thierry does wear his pants awfully high doesnt he, maybe I should do the same?

Alex

What the hell is that yellow splat? A map of France?

Desert Fox

I thought that when i saw it!

NorthLondonKings

Im going on the treadmill before I buy that

dan

make sure you run on it sometimes too.. that works the best

Gutbukket Deffrolla

Bastard….. nearly choked to death…. on tea… Don’t do that again.

GreekTragedy

Puma Kings – the best boots of all time. Hope some of our boys hit them up next year.

billybobjojo

im looking forward to the puma team bringing cesc back

Gross.

Pity, I was hoping the Congolese Sapeurs would be behind the kit design http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-3sVWOxuXc What a press conference that would make!

LANS

I think that guy in the picture is Linford Christie

Witoldo

Good times…good times…

GeeFive

Are you sure thats Linford Christie? Cuz I thought I read somewhere on here was Linford Christie…….

vystina

In other good news, for the first time we are no longer top of the injury table http://www.physioroom.com/news/english_premier_league/epl_injury_table.php

ghanagunner

Never been a fan of the tight puma jerseys. Doesn’t look for us fans……with pot bellies.

ghanagunner

*look good *

Gutbukket Deffrolla

Frank Lampard has the same problem.

Elephantitis mate. See: Adebayor and also Gervinho’s forehead

How is this one going to help us win the league? Nothing / just Nothing and thanks for wasting our time.

Unnecessarilystupid

Likewise.

Well, if they give us more money to spend each year, we can get better players and therefor have a higher probability of securing top spot in the PL and CL and FACup and COCup … Time unwasted 🙂

tight jerseys+walcott= people on the other side feeling gale force wind

ugly

let’s hope those are not final

SoqedHozi

Looks like Thierry spilt food on his shirt…

enoupee

Ugly as fuck.

I’ll get my coat.

Virginia Goon

The one with giroud in the catalog isn’t too bad. I mean it’s not the iconic swoosh, with their classy simplistic approach, but hey! Upwards and onwards for the AFC, on and off the pitch. Just a kit people, won’t have anything to do with the performances inside the emirates compound.

Adam

That yellow splash consists of tiny pics and signatures of club legends and managers. Not minding also the Highbury emblem in the background of all those historical images

Is that Linford Chrisite?

Old Joke.

Goonerestgooner

Looks like Thierry had thrown up over his shirt!
Or had a really messy curry.

And I’m not sure about the one Giroud’s wearing either. Red and blue don’t look right.
But hey, it’s been years since I brought a kit/shirt so it’s not like I’ll be spending any money on this one.

Goonerestgooner

P.S who IS that between Sagna and Henry?

Some bloke called Linford Christie

LJN

Can he play central defence?

Merlin's Panini

Oh, I thought it was Hingle McCringleberry. Oh well.

Gutbukket Deffrolla

Naah, Bill Cosby.

so a war of the brands for the premier league title?
Arsenal-Puma

Chelsea-Adidas

Anything’s fine as long as Puma’s paying loads to fund our spendthrift ways.

In Soviet Russia, WENGA sacks YOU

Imagine the number of promising teenagers the boss can poach from Ligue 2 with the Puma money!

Gutbukket Deffrolla

Imagine how much faster our players will run with puma behind them.

Bendtner's ego

Striped socks??

I’m buying the whole damn kit this time.

Goonerestgooner

Am I the only one thinking that as Thierry’s in the pics, that must mean he’s coming back home to finish his career?

Merlin's Panini

Yes. You’re the only one.

Flamini's Phlegm

In a management sense, I wouldn’t doubt it

Goonerestgooner

Good to know, thanks.

(I was only joking by the way)

Toure Motors

Like a new shirt supplier

anthony arsenal

The new gold away shirt with puma is the best iv ever seen can’t wait to buy it C’mon ARSENAL

Arsepedant

I sur ehope these leaked pics are fakes … the only only that looks okay is Thierry’s home kit. The away kit looks like someone puked on a Tottenham jersey.

Arsepedant

*sure hope* … *only one* … two typos in one post, I must be losing my grip.

deji

If you type while jacking off, you are sure to lose your grip

sohham

Why does Titi have mustard on his jersey?

Sammy Nelsons Arse

Nike will be kicking themselves if Arsene manages to do the zip up on his shiny new Puma coat next season !

jason

Look at the kit deal a none top 4 club such as Liverpool got, why cant we get double the amount?

We are top of the lesgue, on the up and have players like Ozil in our squad our kid deal should be a lot more than 30 million a year.

jason

Yeah just checked Liverpool get 25million so we make 5 million more thats it?

Last time i checked Liverpool aint even a big club anymore..

Last time i checked finally we cant b matched only by clubs with oil rich owners.. we are top of the league and we have players like Ozil yeh we only make a bit more in our kit deal than Liverpool.

What a insult!

jason

yet

JayT

Love how Thierry doesn’t even play for us anymore and still models for us. Just shows you what a legend he is !
