Manchester United have released their new away kit for next season, and it’s grey.

The dark, silvery strip is inspired by United’s 1992 away kit, from which has been lifted the tessellating ‘trefoil’ motif – copying old ideas or “reconnecting with the past to connect with the future”, as Adidas so succinctly put it.

Yep, we know. We’re also gutted that the grotesque ‘holy trinity’ concept shirt that was leaked a couple of months ago was nothing more than a filthy hoax.

Here’s a little more on the ethos involved in the actual design process, as narrated by Inigo Turner, the design director in charge…

And here’s the kit in all it’s steely glory…

Obviously, United have something of a chequered past when it comes to grey away kits.

Next season’s trip to Southampton might trigger some shuddering flashbacks for fans of a certain vintage.

    I really like the design but it’s impossible to look good with a Chevrolet logo. And I’m tired of this stupid non coloured crest. Man United is red and yellow, not black and white. If you want to go all black, the first black thing must be the horrible Chevrolet thing.

    I think in 20 years time we will refer to the current era of the club as the “Chevrolet years”. You know, like bad memories of a hangover.

    Why are they wearing clothes in the shower?

    The holy trinity design is supposed to be for United’s 3rd kit and is supposedly still likely to be released. Which is crazy because it looks incredibly bad.
