I am watching an FA cup match between Arsenal and Leeds, old adversaries in the 20th century.
Now it was deemed by the powers that be that Leeds would have to don their away kit. But exactly why is this? It would seem that the Arsenal players would get confused by White shorts matching their own.
So the whole kit had to be changed because of one colour clash. Leeds played in all blue. But why on earth not just get them to put on blue shorts, and retain their traditional white shirts?
On these grounds, it is then a joke that the Arsenal goalkeeper could get away wearing a deep pink shirt (although precisely why he would want to is another matter). I always though that the last line of defence had to be clearly identifiable. This is patently a much bigger problem than white shorts …
