Fire the Designers – The Big 4’s Potential New Kits

March 28, 2009

If the Premier League title was won based on kit design Liverpool would be a shoo-in for the 2009/2010 season. Based on the “leaked” images (pictures at the bottom of this post) of the potential strips for next year’s season that are doing the rounds on the www, Man United and Chelsea are in serious trouble. Man U are opting for new home and away designs, both of which your grandfather wouldn’t be caught in. Chelsea look as though they are trying to toughen up by adding a shield to the front of their jersey. Arsenal have taken the “going green” thing a little far with a new away design that is at best average. Keeping their home kit from the 2008/2009 campaign, Liverpool are looking at introducing a new alternate strip which is pure class, I must say.



Again, keep in mind that these are only proposals at the moment. That being said…


Man United’s new home and away strips are the greatest crime out of the lot. The tacky collars on the home kit and the dreadful shoelace on the away jersey are ammunition for any opposing fan. A touch of retro is alright, but this has gone a bit over the top. A very nice way to send Sir Alex on his way into retirement – not!


Chelsea have kept a similar style to this season, however they have added a hideous panel to the front of the shirt that resembles a piece of armour. Perhaps John Terry could give this to his mum for the next time she has a brush with the law (shoplifting anyone?). The zip collar is a tragedy and I can only hope this does not make its way to the red side of Liverpool in future years. Given that their kit sponsors are both Adidas this unfortunately could come to fruition.


Arsenal’s canary yellow kit from this season looks to be on the out. This is unfortunate, as I quite liked it. There is nothing special about their new proposed away strip and if this design goes through, then I think the Arsenal players will be hoping that next season ends quicker for them than this one.  


The pick of the lot is the stunning design of Liverpool’s potential away jersey. The predominately black shirt, with gold and red trim will have Liverpool fans queuing at merchandise shops world wide. David Silva would look quite awesome in this strip next year.
