In Arsenal’s pre-season tour of Australia, Theo Walcott accidentally leaked their new away shirt for 2017 18 and it looks like a cycling jersey.
The footage was shown when Arsenal beat Western Sydney 3-1 and reveals Theo in a very tight fitting Arsenal shirt.
The shirt is ice blue and has a round neck collar and ventilation on the shoulders. It’s pretty sick but doesn’t leave anything to the imagination (don’t give one to Henrik Mkhitaryan). It reminds me of a cycle jersey in the Tour de France.
It was a tough end of the season for Theo Walcott. He scored 19 goals, arguably having his best season to date when Arsenal switched to 3 – 5 – 2 and he found himself out of the team. But maybe. Just maybe this is the moment he’s been waiting for. A new blue shirt to help him focus.
