They’ve had a few accidental leaks over the past few weeks (including one by the ‘Build A Bear’ toy shop, who put miniature versions of the strip on sale a week early!), but Man City have finally gotten round to showing off their new home kit for 2012/13 properly – with Captain Kompany and Noel Gallagher posing side-stage in the new duds at a rock festival in Belgium…

Noel (who has really stepped up his PR work for City since the money came rolling in) and his High Flying Birds performed in front of 80,000 people at the Rock Werchter festival with Kompany waiting in the wings, then the two were snapped for the club’s official website before scooting off to watch the Euro 2012 final together.

Here’s that ‘Build A Bear’ leak one more time, chiefly because it’s priceless…

David Silva size! Of all the ways it could’ve happened!

    Very Cool kit. Simple and class.

    The gallagher’s piss me off more than words can describe; they’ve single-handedly wrecked the british rock scene with their ‘let’s go to a concert and shuck piss on each-other’ dumbed-down crap. Kompany seems a fantastic bloke (considering he does a lot of charity work) but just seeing him stand next to this musical dementor has made me lose respect for him..

    Mate, Kompany is a GREAT guy not just for his charity but cuz he is easily one of the most respected captains around, he carries the armband with complete humility and elegance.. No one can deny that. He s a Man city player and will be for long…I’m sure.
    Respect for gallagher too.. yea there was shit going on about him, his rock music, his brother. But he s a TRUE man city fan ( 40 years i think) . Sure i am a man city fan too, but let go of all the past stuff. Gallagher is a successful musician who loves his club. Let it be. !

    Noel Gallagher is a class musician. High Flying Birds is wonderful

    How many telephone books is Noel standing on? I guess 3.

  6. Terry Shedingham says:


    Damned straight! He’s not even close to being as tall as Kompany.

    City courting the lucrative Belgian rock fan market, I see. Clever stuff.

    Noel can bang out a tune or two, no denying his artistry.

    Kompany, a legend for Belgium.

    Regarding music in Belgium, well, the country has an incredibly rich history of musical greatness over the past 30 years.

    Not that Joe Bloggs will know about it, but Belgium really stamped their mark on early 80’s New Wave and then went on to create New Beat. Oh, and then around 1990-1991 they created Belgian Techno.

    Yeah, you remember…

    Anasthasia, Quadrophonia, Injected With A Poison, Innsomniak, etc.

    All those thumping rave tracks, yeah?

    All from Belgium.
