ARSENAL have unveiled their new green third kit – and fans have wasted no time in giving their opinions.
After an 18-day delay, the design, which takes inspiration from their 1982/83 kit, was officially launched today.
It features a “mineral green” base with navy shoulders and an “off-white stylised crest and sponsor logos” that the North London club say has “reinvented a cult classic fit for the present day”.
The kit was unveiled alongside a film produced by Arsenal that “brings continental style to the streets of Islington”.
It features summer signings Declan Rice, Jurrien Timber, Kai Havertz along with England and Arsenal Women’s star Leah Williamson in a production that includes notable landmarks from around the Emirates such as a kebab and ice cream shop as well as a chippie.
And even Martin Odegaard got involved as the star-studded cast modelled the shirt along with a number of trendy outfits to accompany it.

The replica kit is available from Adidas for £80, while the authentic kit is priced at £110 and can be bought from the club directly.
One fan responded to the unveiling with: “The advert is like a funeral. So sad.”
Another thought it was a rip off of Manchester United’s new away kit, writing: “‘Copy United's but remove the stripes’. Adidas: ‘OK.’”
But an Arsenal fan hit back and said: “There is literally zero resemblance between these kits.”

After seeing new boy Kai Havertz striking a pose in the new jersey on top of collared shirt and a pair of loud trousers, another joked: “I'm definitely going to recreate this Harvetz look.”
Another replied that the German ace looked “dope” while a fellow fan claimed he looked like he was from “a scene out of Matrix”.
However, the inclusion of fellow new boy Timber sparked some sadness among supporters.
The £40m Dutch defender, 22, went down during the Gunners' 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
It has since been confirmed he has damaged his anterior cruciate ligament which could rule him out for the rest of the SEASON.
And after he featured in the clip, one fan wrote: “Every time I see a photo of Timber I want to cry.”
With a fellow Gooner responding to that with: “Same. Just feel so so sad. Hopefully will come back stronger.”
