New Manchester United away strip y’all…


Pies verdict: Handsome shirt, incredibly naff shorts (they look suspiciously like swimming shorts to our keen satorial eye), though the overall effort is a darn sight more palatable than next year’s home strip.

As we said when we first clapped eyes on the home one, while Nike’s attempts to reflect the industrial history are admirable, why not use the Gingham a little more delicately? Perhaps a swatch on the collar/cuff, etc.

What say you folks? Dost thou approve?

    Like the design as a whole, don’t agree with the collar. If it was a plain polo-style collar (a la Liverpool’s Warrior kits) then it would be much better. Gingham shorts I don’t mind too much.

    the top reminds me of a baseball jersey

    the shorts remind me of steve urkel

  3. Anon says:

    Badge design looks very familiar..

  4. muppets says:

    it’s atrocious. i mean the shirt just looks naff and clashes outrageously with the appalling shorts.

    Have nike let a fucking 3 year old design their kits this year??? I just don’t understand how they can go from churning out decent kits to the monstrosities of next season

  5. CuriousGeorge says:

    Why are they trying to look Chinese? If I’m not mistaken, this is what a traditional Chinese garments look like, minus the buttons

  6. dave says:

    i actually like the shorts

  7. Del says:

    It’s alright, could be worse.

  8. Rob says:

    Did they forget to take the hanger out of Rio’s

    Glad I became a City supporter…

  10. Fellaini's Fro says:

    @johnnyauto real united fans probably are too, especially since your allegiance swings with whoever’s top of the table

  11. Hutchy says:

    basically the inspiration is what grown men look like going to bed. a white vest and boxer shorts

  12. Lord of the Aisles says:

    The kit looks like the usual old money making toot. The models need commenting on though. Giggs looks like he would rather be anywhere else in case he gets caught. Rooney looks like he should be holding a wheel barrow. ferdinand looks like a third rate ‘gangsta’ trying to look scarey before he does a runner. It doesn’t matter though because the faithful will wear it unless you get a NUFC type rebellion.

  13. zip says:

    ugly as wayne rooney.

  14. Captain Obvious says:

    Giggs looks like he doesn’t know who or where he is.

  15. ManU Fan says:

    great look, cant wait for the season to start
