Revealed: Is this new Arsenal away shirt?

Is this the new away shirt that the Arsenal will be wearing for next season’s Premier League campaign? Well, according to various Gooners on Twitter is is. I am not totally against it but sit very firmly in the traditional camp so I will always prefer good old yellow and blue.

You may remember that we brought you the first glimpse of our new home top for the 2012/13 season.

Back in February we were sent an actual photo of the new shirt but to give no clue as to where and when it was taken, we mocked up this version based on the original picture we were sent.

Meanwhile, RVP has been speaking ahead of the vital Premier League game against Everton away tomorrow night.

He said: “It is tough to play the way we all want. We need to be consistent and get a win over the line, like at Liverpool. We did it now, and we can enjoy it, but we need to show it again (at Everton) and it may even be a harder game, but we have to give it our maximum and see where it ends.

“If you look at the last couple of weeks, we showed we have a lot of character in our side, and we can be proud of that. Now we need to show that over a period of a whole year. We need to have a run like that for months and even win the ugly games. We showed signs that we can do it because against Liverpool we didn’t play well, but still nicked it.

“We came from behind in the past four games and ended up winning the game. That shows we can do it, not only once or twice or three times, but lots of times. So why not show it 20 times or whenever it is needed?”
