Man City Unveil Stripey New Away Shirt During FA Cup Parade (Photos)

Some clever bods in the Man City marketing department chose the club’s FA Cup parade through the streets of Manchester yesterday as the perfect platform to unveil their new Umbro away kit for next season – and a right bobby-dazzler it is too.

But don’t just take Pies’ word for it, have a butcher’s…

“Right, you’ll like this one. A Belgian, a Bosnian, a Serbian and an elderly French gentleman walk into a bar…”

“Basically, could I have a condensed Pink Floyd concert for £500?”

Lovin’ that new strip. With their new, striped-back ‘tailored’ approach, it looks like Umbro have got it right once again.

Any thoughts?
