Confirmed today. It's rats <erk>

The image on the website seems to show stripes on the back rather than the plain one we saw earlier so that's definitely an improvement. I'm not convinced on it but I'm slightly less grumpy.

Nope, the back looks weird. Are they grey stripes below the black sleeve and shoulders? It's definitely a different colour.

I don't think they're a different colour, I just think they're a slightly different (shinier) material.

Overall I don't mind it. I like the crest in the middle, and the hooped crewneck collar. I don't mind the wider stripes (as an occasional change - wouldn't want them every year), the monochrome crest, or the back stripes not going all the way to the top (better than than a solid back). I do wish they'd maybe repeated the collar striping on the cuff of the sleeves, or used more white on them.

That's pretty much it for me too. I won't be rushing to get it but could be tempted in the sales.

Yeah, I'm not buying it but at least it's not got a whacking great black box on the back to try and force you to get printing on it.

I see we have a new sponsor for the tour in China



Same colour scheme as sports direct. The alleged app doesn’t exist. Is this a test/slow phasing in of it as our sponsor?

I've used my ITK status on this one. My cousin lives in Hong Kong and tells me the literal translation is "Everyone complete sports". Which doesn't really explain anything. Carry on.

I can't really see why they would need to "test" the colours of Sports Direct with a fake company? It isn't as if they could one day sneak SD on one day and nobody would notice, or that having a similarly coloured sponsor would somehow ease people into it.

I'm not a native or based in Newcastle so I wouldn't know this, however, according to the True Faith podcast last night I am getting the impression that few have taken the financial plunge on the new kit.

You'd have to question why anyone would. Not being able to stop going is one thing, but being that desperate to spend £50 on a new shirt in this climate?

That said one of the guys in the photos at the protests when Rafa went was wearing a Fun88 branded tracksuit, so you never can tell.

Setting aside that distractingly bad sponsor yesterday, I actually thought the kit looked better on pitch than expected.

So this is a bloody thing of beauty. Imagine that in black and white, possibly with less rubbish sleeves. Umbro. <love>
