There are two types of sports fans in India. The first that eats, lives and breathes cricket. And the second, that doesn’t enjoy the overhyped game and prefers football instead. If you’re from the latter category and an Arsenal fan (read Gooner) to boot, the upcoming Premier League season promises to be even more exciting than the last. Here’s why.
A nostalgic comeback
The adidas jerseys that were the face of the club from 1986 to 1994 have made a comeback after 25 years! These threads sure have a lot of nostalgia surrounding them.
Catching up with history
The iconic red and white home jersey of 1986 for example, was the first one to incorporate adidas’ three stripes on the sleeves and shorts. The club lifted various cups wearing it. The ‘Bruised Banana’ which was introduced in the summer of 1991 went on to become immensely popular.
