Umbro have roped in Liam Gallagher and the rest of the Beady Eye chaps to help launch the new Man City home kit, which they did with lilting rendition of the City’s appropriated anthem, Blue Moon…

The bods over at Umbro have also released a video that documents the story of the ‘Blue Moon soundwave’ design that they have studiously incorporated into the new shirt.

Have a butcher’s…

All fine and dandy, except that it seems as if they’ve gone with that godawful, flea-market knock-off neck design that we railed against when photos of the kit were first leaked a few months back.

Why-oh-why does no-one ever listen to us?

    Loved how on youtube earlier the ad that popped up while the video was playing was for tickets to Man United

    Ok, this kit is shit, I know it. It’s terrible. This is the worst thing Umbro have made in a long while. The color is wrong, we didn’t need to change anything these past two years, the collar is plain stupid, and that soundwave effect is god awful. That being said, this thing is growing on me. Eh, stick a toe tag on me, I love the MCFC.

    That being said, can we wear our away kit every game?

    In 1963 when we fell to Division Two, the Stretford End cried out aloud ‘It’s the end for you Sky Blue,’ Joe Mercer came, we played the game, we went to Rotherham, we won 1-0, and we were back into Division One.
    We’ve won the League we’ve won the Cup, we’ve been to Europe too, and when we win the League again, we’ll sing this song to you:
    City! City! City! City! City!

    Chris – I can’t believe you posted something remotely to do with Oasis and you didn’t use it as an opportunity to repost Tyldesley’s “sunsheeyyiine” impression….

    @Wiggs: Goddamn it, completely slipped my mind! What a ballbag.

  5. KingEric7 says:

    Why would you want your team to be associated with “that”..

  6. Montesquieu says:

    Why wouldn’t you?

    He’s the only celebrity I can think of that supports City, and supported them even in the days before the Arab revolt.

  7. hgo says:

    that pathetic hippy galagher are perfect match to city

  8. Montesquieu says:

    It’s just a shame that Joey Barton doesn’t play on the team.

  9. Ryan says:

    Blue Moon is such a stupid fucking song

  10. Montesquieu says:

    As opposed to ‘Celery’ or ‘He’s got a pineapple on his head’ or even the Arsenal chant. They’re all relatively dumb, it just a matter of what side of the pitch you’re on.

    Liam=MCFC’s homosexual cheerleader. The shot with him at the end wearing the new kit, hilarious.
