Man City have unveiled their new home kit for 2017/18 and, quite honestly, we’d forgive you for not noticing.
Nike have proffered forth a largely generic, plain blue template (with a return to white shorts) that is supposedly in homage to the strip of City’s league-winning team of 1967/68.

According to the official pamphlet, the shirt features “engineered knit zones”, “subtle geometric patterns” and “increased ventilation”…
As with so many of Nike’s recent efforts, it’s prim, clean and achingly dull.
A little bit of imagination wouldn’t go amiss.
