Blue Barf: Chelsea Unveil New 2019/20 Home Kit And It’s An Absolute Rotter (Photos)

Chelsea have unveiled their new home kit for the 2019/20 season and, with all the will in the world, it’s a bit of a mess.

The blue shirt features an angular motif all over it that is, as Nike assure us, constructed of various abstract images of the Stamford Bridge architecture which have been jumbled up and stitched back together.

The same pattern can be found on bus seats the length and breadth of the land.

It’s difficult to look at these photos of Eden Hazard on modelling duty and not read into that facial expression – the ‘I’m definitely joining Real Madrid now’ look.

On the one hand, it’s refreshing to see a kit design that isn’t just solid block colour and/or some sort of retro knock-off.

On the other hand, it does look a bit ‘1992’ and, even though it is something a little different, we can’t imagine we’re ever going to start warming to it.

What’s the verdict, Pies fans? Yay or nay?

    Compared to this year’s home kit it’s a definite yay!

  2. Slagovic Fagiota says:

    I must be the only cunt who quite likes this. Something different isn’t it I actually think it looks really good

  3. jackie wilshere says:

    agree, nay
    i saw it this morning on instagram and the few comments i read were complimentary. wtf??? like you said- bus seat haha

  4. ChrisCan says:

    I rather like it — it’s unique, good splashes of red, and the pattern continues onto the sleeves. Overall a fine effort.

  5. Sjorn says:

    I actually don’t mind it, I’d take it over the copy and paste template kits of the last few years.

  6. Straight Dave says:

    It makes Ampadu’s barnet look relatively tidy in comparison

  7. Hank Moody says:

    I think it’s alright. A bit 90s. Not nice but not bad.

    At least they don’t have the Chevrolet logo stamped there.

  8. Gunner Bob says:

    So… most people in the comments seem to like it (including myself) doesn’t seem like such a flop.

    No offense Pies Guys, your sense of fashion might suck :D

    • JP says:

      Yeah, I’m with Bob here, your sense of style is pretty off kilter.

      This kit is fine, maybe even ‘pretty good’.

  9. Xaviour says:

    Nice, looks a bit of Everton but still nice. Brings back the nostalgia of the 80s and 90s as well

  10. B says:

    So is the Pies dead now or what ?

  11. Bandk says:

    RIP Pies

  12. Paul says:

    Bye Pies! On a fucking Chelsea article as well

  13. AI says:

    Guess so. Anyone have any other football blogs to follow to fill this void.

  14. Chris Wright says:

    Unfortunately, the official line is that Pies is “on hiatus”.

    For more information, please see below.

    Hi Chris,
    The twitter account has been closed so now we have no idea.
    Sad to see this site close.

  17. Chris Wright says:

    Twitter has locked the Pies account because, for reasons unknown, they suddenly assumed we were under 13 years of age and locked us out.

    We’re in the process of trying to prove that to them that we’re actually (semi)adults + get back on Twitter asap.

    We’re also trying to secure a future for the site in some capacity, so finger’s crossed.

  18. Hank Moody says:

    Pies, you’re not Guns n’ Roses to go on hiatus, come on. We need a place to read the news and to comment shit things. For example, I think United will catch City now that they bought Daniel James from Swansea.

    • Chris Wright says:

      Unfortunately, we currently can’t afford to run the site any longer.

      As I say, fingers are crossed.

  19. Simon says:

    @ Chris

    Ask for donations then. I’ll happily chip in, whatever that’s worth.

    • Chris Wright says:

      Thanks Simon, but it’s a little complicated at the moment. It’s all above my head.

      Still (faintly) hoping there might be a future, but I’ve not heard anything for a while.

  20. Gary Packer says:

    Get a kickstarter on the go to raise the funds

  21. Thor Einar says:

    Sad to see the end of this great site. Thanks for all the funny articles and cross-eyed view on football over the years. Good luck!

  22. Pies4Life says:

    Dear Reader,
    You have already read this article and are just looking for an update on the pies website by scrolling through the comments.
    In other news, Newcastle are subject of a takeover by Sheikh Khaled, failing that, they will look to invest in something else (Whoateallthepies)

  23. Pimp says:

    Pies, if you really need money, please consider prostitution in order to get the website up and running again.

  24. David says:

    There are some many ads here right now, I thought I was buying a Suzuki.

  25. Pol says:

    Dear Pies,
    Yes, I am definitely reading throught the comments for news!
    In other news, Liverpool FC have won the Champions League – congratulations Liverpool, comiserations to Spurs.

    Maybe Sheikh Khaled could invest in Pies?

    • Hussain says:

      I think we’re going to have to continue whoateallthepies by posting articles in comments.
      1. Liverpool win boring champions league
      2. Chelsea win boring road trip to Europa league

  26. dr90 says:

    Thanks for the years of great content Chris. As others have said, Pies will be sorely missed.

  27. El Capitan says:

    When are Pies returning?
