2019/20 Kit Launch Season Is Underway
It’s that time of year again. Clubs are signing players, selling players, making plans for next season and most importantly releasing their new kits for the 2019/20 season. We’ve had a look at some that have caught our eye.
Could this be the kit? Liverpool got so close to a Premier League title last season, could this be the one they get over the line wearing? Special mention for the keeper kit too. Former Mexico goalkeeper Jorge Campos wouldn’t be a fan of how simple it is, but we are.
So last season was a disaster for Man Utd on the pitch and that goes for the kit too but next season’s kit is an improvement. Let’s not laugh at the fact that they’re launching a kit inspired by their Champions League win in ‘99 in the same year they failed to qualify for the tournament. No, we said let’s not laugh.
Arsenal haven’t officially launched their new Adidas kit but a leaked image gives us a preview and it’s a cracker. The three stripes bring back memories of Arsenal pre-Wenger when under George Graham the Gunners were the best defensive unit in the league. Will this kit help bring back defensive stability to Arsenal? *Checks to see if Mustafi is still there* No, no it won’t.
It wouldn’t be kit launch season without a bit of fan uproar and this time it comes from Juventus who have ditched the traditional black and white stripes for a half and half tribute to Blackburn. Reports say it’s to try to sell more shirts in America because the stripes remind people of referees or Foot Locker employees there. The game’s gone lads.
Celtic continue the yearly tradition of trying to make the same jersey every year, give or take a collar or button. This season they’ve gone for a green collar and we can only hope, in the name of shithousery, that Scott Brown pops the collar up for the Old Firm matches as he rattles anyone who comes within 4 yards of him.
Spare a thought for Newcastle fans. This leaked image shows their kit for next season which looks like it was designed by Mike Ashley specifically to upset the Toon Army. Mission accomplished.
