If you’ll forgive the slight saturation, we have yet another new and important update on Newcastle’s home kit for 2017/18.
As we’ve seen through a succession of recent leaks, the 125th anniversary strip is shaping up to be a bit of a retro-tinged classic and the latest detail to emerge might just seal the deal.
As revealed by the club themselves, the new Toon strip will see a return of the bold red names and numbers for the first time since the 1992/93 campaign – the year Kevin Keegan’s side gained promotion to the nascent Premier League.
By ‘eck, they do look smart…

There’s just something about crisp red numbers on a bed of black and white stripes – it looks great when Newcastle do it, and it looks great when Juventus do it too.
As previously stated, the sponsor’s logo maybe an eyesore, but there’s nothing wrong with the rest of that there kit.
Purely belter, as the locals might say.
