Win exclusive Pelé Sports gear on the Arsenal FC Blog

A couple of days I mentioned that the good folks at Pelé Sports would be offering up some great gear exclusively to AFCB readers. Well, now the time has come to give them away!

There first item you can win is the Pelé Story Wind Jacket:

The Pelé Story Wind Jacket

With this new wind jacket you can fight off wind and weather and be fashionable in the stands: the extremely light zippered jacket made of 100% polyester with mesh inner lining is very wind- and water-resistant, and the drawstring casing on the hood provides additional protection from the wind. A fantastic jacket to have in cold and wet times. The three stars on the chest stand for the three world cups won by Pelé.

The second prize up for grabs is a terrific Heart and Soul tee from their Pelada collection:

The Heart and Soul Tee

The Heart and Soul Crew is Futsal. Functional and brimming with style, this tee fits perfectly in a skilled player’s wardrobe. Start your match with Pelé’s signature and the Pelé’s Sports’ Pelada emblem on the chest. Choose your color and never forget: your game is more than just technique. Your game is passion and filled with the joy of Futebol bonito.

  1. All time favourite Arsenal XI:

    Keeper: Seaman
    Right back: Lee Dixon
    Left Back: Ashle Cole
    Centre backs: Tony Adams and Sol Campbell
    Midfielders: Patrick Vieira, Pelé, Robert Pires
    Strikers: Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Ian Wright

  2. szczesny (ninja ftwwwww!)
    dixon and clichy on the sides
    Campbell in the middle of defense
    vieira and cesc in the middle
    and to top it off.. an attacking diamond formed by
    Pele, Bergkamp, Henry, and Ian Wright


  3. Bob Wilson.
    Bob McNab, Sagna, Tony Adams, Frank McLintock, Georgie Armstrong, Charlie George, Liam Brady, Thierry Henry, Pele, Fabregas.
    Subs..Van Persie, Nasri, Peter Storey, Bergkamp, Seaman (GK).

  4. Keeper: David Seaman
    Wing Backs: Ashley Cole, Lee Dixon
    Centre Backs: Tony Adams, Kolo Toure
    Midfield: Francesc Fabregas, Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires
    Forwards: Thierry Henry, Pele, Dennis Bergkamp

    I believe I am the first one to add Kolo to the all time XI. A bit unique, but he was consistent and strong, and I guess I am a bit of a maverick! Otherwise, they could compete with Man U this year 🙂

  5. Keeper: Seaman
    Wing Backs: Ashley Cole, Lee Dixon
    Centre Backs: Tony Adams, Sol Campbell
    Midfield: Cesc Fabregas, Vieira, Pires
    Forwards: Thierry Henry, Pele, Dennis Bergkamp

    Subs: Marc Overmars, Van Persie, Ian Wright, Freddie Ljungberg Wjciech Szczesny (GK)

    I have mad faith in our new young goalie with the un-spellable name, Szczesny! I’d initially thought of having Ljungberg in the starting 11, but, that trio of Henry, Pele & Bergkamp seems absolutely perfect!






  7. Goalkeepeer: Jens Lehman
    Defenders: Ashley Cole, Tony Adams, Kolo Toure, Lee Dixon
    Midfield: Cesc Fabregas, Patrick Vieira, Robert Pires
    Forwards: Pele, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp

    These guys would have been invincible……

    Arsenal for the quadruple!

  9. Seaman
    Sagna Adams Campbell Winterburn

    Henry Bergkamp Pires

    With Henry, Pele and Pires switching positions all the time to confuse defenders.

  10. Keeper: Seaman
    Defenders:Tony Adams, David O’Leary, Pat Rice, Sol Campbell
    Midfielders: Liam Brady, Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires, Graham Rix
