Of course there was absolutely zero need to bring out another new Man City home shirt, as the current one is rather lovely, but I do think this new one is slightly lovelier. It reeks of class and even looks comfortable, as so many of the new Umbro kits do.
I especially like the collar detailing – on the inside you may notice a mini striped scarf motif, no doubt added as a nod to scarf-obsessed gaffer Roberto Mancini.
What say you, discerning people of Planet Internet?

In other news, I see David Platt has joined City’s coaching staff. Platty is an old mate of Mancini’s, as the pair played together for Sampdoria in the early 1990s.
