The lull between the end and the start of the new Premier League season is dragging more than ever, which isn't helped by the incredible summer we enjoyed twelve months ago.
The weather was scorching everyday, beer gardens and pubs were heaving & most importantly we had Gareth and the Three Lions doing their thing at World Cup. The lads had us dreaming of success in Russia and soon made us forget about the absence of Premier League football.
Fast forward a year. The weather's been so unpredictable, we're not reminiscing about an England World Cup victory and we have NO football.
Not that we've been counting every day, but there's 43 days to go until the start of the 2019/20 Premier League season (okay maybe we have) and it cannot come quick enough.
Clubs are busy preparing off the field for the start of the campaign with big money transfers grabbing the bulk of the headlines.
There's been some eye-catching deals made already in the top flight but another major talking point for fans has been the latest batches of kits that'll be on display in the top flight next season.
Clubs around the world have been showing off their latest strips and there's been some belters, with Ajax's new away jersey taking some beating.
But two that are certainly up there with the best are the latest Arsenal kits. The Gunners' deal with Puma expired at the end of the 2018/19 season which led to a new deal with Adidas.
The German sportswear giants used to kit the Gunners out between 1986-94 and they produced some absolute belters. I mean who can forget that sublime yellow 'bruised banana' JVC number from the 1991-93 campaigns, a real thing of beauty.
It's been 25 years since the two worked together and after seeing the masterpieces that Adidas created last time, hopes were high that they could improve on those questionable Puma kits. And boy they have.
The home and away jerseys have been leaked and they look absolutely superb. The 19/20 home kit looks like a throwback to the fantastic 1986 home kit donned by the likes of Tony Adams and Kenny Sansom. Whilst their away number is inspired by that 91-93 'bruised banana' kit. Both pulled off to the absolute max.
These are set to launch to the public on Monday 1st July both online and in Arsenal's various megastores. In a bid to build up the excitement for these new releases even further, the pair have collaborated to create this superb promotional video.
This features a number of current Arsenal players such as Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette along with legends Ian Wright & Adams.
Wrighty says "you're not born a Londoner, you're made one", which is emphasised by all the Gunners players being dubbed by London accents which is hilarious, all contributing to 111 seconds of pure genius. Kudos to everyone involved in creating this masterpiece.
Unai Emery's boys are going to look superb on the pitch next season and they could well be joined by Yannick Carrasco and Kieran Tierney, who both remain the clubs major transfer targets.
It's a long wait for the Premier League to return but content like this helps speed it up for sure.
43 days to go...
