New Kits. Some ok, some awful.

The Premier League’s “Big 4” have a few ideas for new kits currently doing the rounds on the internet. Some of the “leaked” pictures seem pretty genuine and plausible, while others are so terrible that I have trouble believing that they are even real.


I must admit, I actually quite like this shirt. Green isn’t exactly a traditional colour for Arsenal, but they did wear similar colours back in 1982 when they were rubbish.


Black is not a colour worn traditionally by Liverpool, and the last time they wore it (during the 2002/2003 season) they went on their worst run of results since the ’50s. But the black and gold kit above is, in my opinion, actually quite tasteful, which is in stark contrast with these:


If Man Utd do end up playing in these kits next season, it will for me represent a diabolical gaffe on the part of their image and marketing department. The away kit is particularly bad, a real embarrassment, and quite amusing.

Finally you have the Premier League’s nouveau riche, Chelsea. And true to form, they seem to have attempted to be individual, but have only succeeded in looking somewhat garish and lacking in class. The padded effect on the chest is most definitely not for me.

ye not feeling the green kit. like you say we were shat when we wore it, just another crap idea from nike. it annoys me when kit manufacturers fugg around with the basics of a teams colours. such as the white away and the silly sleeves on this years top

the arsenal and liverpool kits look ok enough, but as for the utd and chelsea strips….they have to be a joke! i will laugh heartily all season if they prove to be genuine, but in reality i think some merry prankster has got way too much time on their hands.
shame, i could do with a guaranteed laugh every weekend….
