London based Arsenal Football Club has developed a strong following since its founding in 1886. Arsenal's fans are often referred to as Gooners, the name derived from the team's nickname, the "Gunners". Many fanzines, blogs, podcasts and fans websites have been dedicated to the club and the fans have long-standing rivalries with several other clubs; the most notable of these is with neighbours Tottenham Hotspur, with whom they regularly contest the North London derby. The club and the fans have regularly featured in portrayals of football in British culture. Gunners come from far and wide, a 2005 report estimated Arsenal's global fan base at 27 million, the third-largest in the world.
A September 2011 report estimated Arsenal's fanbase at 100 million worldwide, still making them the third-largest team in terms of supporters.
Facts about Arsenal
Best Arsenal Kit Of All Time
- Gold Arsenal away kit, 2001-2. As will become clear in this digest, it can be difficult to separate the aesthetics of a kit and a team's achievements wearing it. This kit spawned a dozen Spandau Ballet-backed montages as Arsenal completed their second league and cup double under Arsene Wenger, while staying unbeaten away from home in the league and scoring in all 38 league games.
- The bruised banana, 1991-3. Universally despised at the time, but the zig-zag yellow away kit has developed a cult following among retro enthusiasts. So much so that fans on Twitter are imploring Adidas to reproduce it for 2019-20 season, despite the memories it evokes of an FA Cup exit at Wrexham. Would sell well among the under-30s who missed out on the days of tickets on the gate, clean sheets and Cup final replays.
- Yellow and blue classic, 1971. Timeless and elegant. Walk around N5 on matchday and you will be sure to see a few dozen replicas of both the home and away kit from Arsenal's 1971 Double-winning season. The yellow and blue away strip contrasted with Liverpool's all red in the Wembley sun is an imperishable FA Cup image, and helped popularise the chant 'She Wore a Yellow Ribbon' - a song from John Wayne's 1949 film of the same name. Arsenal would also win the Cup in yellow in 1979.
- Post-Invincible home kit, 2004-5. Sleek and modern: a home jersey that befitted a team in the middle of a 49-game unbeaten run. Although Arsenal would win another cup final in this jersey in laughably fortuitous fashion against United, the strip is forever associated with a 5-3 victory over Middlesbrough from 3-1 down at Highbury in August. Arsenal scored three in 11 minutes in the second half, with the Sky Sports cameras still showing a replay when Jose Antonio Reyes cracked a shot into the top corner.
- Puma's first (and best) attempt, 2014-15. Hooped socks are a thing of beauty, end of argument. The best minds at Cape Canaveral cannot explain why, but the kinetics of 11 men on a football pitch just look more powerful and purposeful with hooped socks. The 1994-96 home kit could have been chosen.
- The lesser-spotted green away kit, 1982-83. A break from tradition, but like the bruised banana has been greatly elevated by the passing of time and is now something of a collector's item. Although slightly lost in the rush to herald its return is the fact it was an Umbro creation.
- Anfield '89 away kit. The three stripes across the shoulder and embroidered Adidas logo reflected the casual wear popular on the terraces in the 1980s, and when a kit is involved in the single most dramatic moment in Arsenal history, it has to make it in. A taste of what fans can expect in the near future, perhaps.
- Yellow, blue AND hooped socks, 2013-14. Ticks every box, an absolute peach. Arsenal topped the league for 127 days this season, but injuries to Aaron Ramsey and Theo Walcott de-railed them, in addition to thrashings at Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City. They also contrived to take one point from six against David Moyes' United.
- All black Arsenal third kit, 2017-18. Sacrilege! A Modern Football inclusion, and it even has a flash of pink. And the players have gloves on!
- Invincible home kit, 2003-4. Rather plain and, by 2018 standards, a little baggy. However, if you ask Arsenal and non-Arsenal fans alike to think back to a time when they were good, the image of this kit and the sponsor O2 instantly spring to mind.
