Is this Arsenal’s greatest shirt of a generation?

During the early 2000s, Arsenal were absolutely killing it.

If you ever wonder why their fans can come across as spoilt these days, it’s probably because they had it so good in the not-so-distant past.

At the turn of the century, Arsene Wenger’s side had the upper hand over bitter rivals Manchester United, and were the dominant force in English football.

In the 2000-01 season, not only were they a wonderful side, but they also had a wonderful kit, with a now-extinct sponsor.

That season, Arsenal’s home shirt was absolute gold: the classic red-and-white fare, manufactured by Nike and sponsored by Dreamcast, a Sega games console.

Not only did the likes of Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and Tony Adams don this gear, but they played some scintillating football.

Henry was the club’s top scorer that season, but the legendary Frenchman was unable to propel Arsenal to a Premier League win, with Manchester United dominating the division that year, picking up the title by 10 points over the Gooners.
