Arsenal's record in their blue away kit is RIDICULOUSLY bad

The Gunners suffered ANOTHER shock defeat in their blue kit yesterday

Posted Saturday, February 24, 2018 by

Arsenal were so bad last night, weren't they?

The Gunners went into the second-leg of their Europa League last-32 clash against Ostersunds with a nice three-goal lead. But somehow, they very nearly screwed it all up in the return clash at the Emirates.

In the first 45-minutes, they played absolutely horrendously, conceding two quick goals while their all-round performance left very little to be desired.

Luckily, they came out in the second-half a little more awake and scored moments after the restart, duly winning the tie 4-2 on aggregate.


And while most of us are scratching our heads over the performance, it looks like there's a very simple explanation for their poor performance.

It was the kit.

Yep, you may have wondered why the Gunners were turning out in their blue away kit in last night's game at home. Well, it turns out that UEFA asked them to wear their second kit to avoid any potential clash with Ostersunds' away kit, which is red and black.

It's just that, well, Arsenal are really bad when they're wearing blue.

So much so, that some fans even believe it's cursed.

Check out their record in blue.

Pretty dire, isn't it?

In fact, it looks like the Gunners have only won ONCE in their blue kit, when they faced Belarusian side BATE Borisov.

This all sounds rather familiar.

Remember when Alex Ferguson once blamed Man United's performance against Southampton on their hideous grey kit?

Back in 1996, United fell 3-1 to the Saints, having previously enjoyed a run of 11 wins in their last 12 games.

However, they were 3-0 down at half-time at the Dell and Fergie famously made his players change into a different kit for the second half.
