When you see the Arsenal badge up against another badge (like in the op) you realise how meh our current crest is.

The Newcastle one is quite nice, but while I have seen worse than ours, it's still very average/plain looking....shame we had to change the one we had in 2002.

Just says "video unavailable" for me, even if I refresh it...assume this is about the copyright issues with the old badge?

Proper Arsenal...great stadium in Highbury, can't expand it...great badge representing the club, don't really own it...being a fan of this team, man :lol:

I’ve always thought our badge looks quite childish, way too basic.

We were ahead of the curve in England though because a lot of other clubs after us started doing it with theirs.

Would love a modern / traditional hybrid badge.

Interesting to see what Arteta does here...does he use the Liverpool defeat to get Ødegaard and Tierney a start here, have Partey and Niles ever played in midfield together (Lokonga has been good, but wouldn't mind seeing how those 2 do)

Newcastle's defence is awful, should be scoring a good amount here, especially after that second half v Liverpool...or at least creating a lot of chances to miss.
Has to bring in AMN and I think if fit he will also start Tierney. But I think Lacazette gives us more atm than Ødegaard.

I think Arsenal will win this, 2-0.

Christ...here I was relying on polls for my prediction in a match thread this whole time, didn't think I could just type it out in my post...shaken here, ngl...

Might have been Macho who said it, but we really shouldn't be as reliant on Laca as we seem to be.

He's a good player, who has been playing well, so is starting on merit...but considering the quality players we also have, plus Alex leaving in the summer...he shouldn't be as undroppable as he feels, you feel our attack really struggles without him.

You can't be playing...Auba/Saka/Ødegaard/ESR as an attack, but look poor...Arteta needs to sort that out soon.

Nothing will ever beat the old one, which is why the only Arsenal jersey I have is the one from our 2001-2002 double-winning season, the last one with the old crest :drool:

I hate our current crest. with a passion, its lacking character.

Having said that, I'll take it over a couple of pathetic seahorses & a drunk flag-waving lion any day.
