    Think it to raise awareness/combat knife crime somehow?

    It's OK to just cut the upper RH arm though.

    No red on shirts. Liverpool agreed to change their kit in support.

    Are Arsenal the only club who does this?
    Seem to recall them doing it last season too but can’t recall anyone else

    They did play in all white last season for a game. Can't remember if it was for the same campaign

    The campaign is called 'No More Red' and is to raise awareness of knife crime and youth violence.

    The commentator over here said it was their "Drained of Red" kit, to support the campaign(s) documented above.

    I think it's because they are massive fans of Michael Barrymore, and their kit is a homage to his most famous catchphrase

    Just another nonsense token gesture. We all abhore knife crime. Some pampered sportsmen wearing a fancy kit means nothing at all to the local nutter who ia prepared to stab someone to death.

    No but it might just make some young kid think twice about going out with a knife if their favourite footballer is part of the csmpaign.

    We'd all love that to be the case but it really won't unfortunately.

    if it just reaches 1 kid then brilliant. If not they’ve changed their kit for a game.

    Great to see you are on the bag as always. You ought to stop reading the beano and try the bbc sport website…

    you ought to have titled this ‘how can I make myself look more drops than I normally do…’

    Can't work out whether you're a troll or just a lovely person...... Maybe both

    It's just raising awareness. What's there to object to? If it reaches just one person, it's worked.
