Oh, I am so ordering one of those home shirts. Almost ordered one of the old ones out of last-minute panic that they'd screw it up, but glad I waited.

Not as big a fan of the change kits, with the gray accents. But all in all, a great look.

I've seen some pretty intricate training kits before, especially from Umbro - and no, gray has not ever before been included in the England home kit, at least in my mind.

I bought the 2007 England training shirts home and away and they had much more intricate designs. I almost thought about putting a number on the back and using them as regular jerseys. England would probably get run off the field if Umbro is in the place that the star should be. Plus I think FIFA actually has a rule that the kit sponser can not be placed ont eh left, only the right or center.

New Manchester United road kits, inspired by FA Cup-winning team of 1909, in video form (???) here.

Rumour was that the stripe was to be used on the home jerseys next year. And the fact it's a photoshopped kit they are getting rid of leads me to believe it will look closer to the youtube video showing Saudi Telecom as the sponsor. If they follow rotation blue would have been the change strip this year and white next year. So they may just have a white/red version of this year's away or simply reverse the shirt/stripe pattern.

Sure hope not.

There's a photo gallery of the new kits on this page - under "2009 Rapids Marketing Photo Shoot". No look at the long-sleeved version yet, which seems a little odd.

Cool little detail - the number 5280 is written on the back of the shirt (just under the collar), a reference to Denver's altitude.

I may be in the minority here, but I've always felt that soccer shirts without a sponsor on the front look too blank.

I have the opposite reaction - my primary objection to sponsorship isn't crass commercialism but uniform clutter. Especially in the Prem, where teams become so identified with uniform colors.

Arsenal is red shirt with white stripes. Chelsea is all blue, white socks. Newcastle is black and white stripes. They were so iconic that a lot of teams didn't even bother with jersey crests until recently.

The reason they started to use crests was brand recognition. If you took a Urawa Reds jersey and put it next to a Man U jersey with no sponsors or no crest they are somewhat similiar. Chelsea and Red Bulls would have the same problem with the new Chelsea home and New York's away.

I understand that, but the simple club crest take care of that problem itself. Large wordmarks or identifiers just aren't needed. But historically, club colors are much more important in England than they are in the United States - very rarely are they changed, because they have been the primary identifier. Come on you Reds, and all that.

But Chelsea and the Red Bulls? Really?

I don't think we even need the badges to keep those clear. :P

Discussing the idea that they have the same design and if a casual fan that didn't follow either league bought one of these he'd not really worry about which one he got his friend until he got a weird look and the words, "Why did you get me a crappy Red Bulls shirt!"

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure I followed your syntax.

If we're worried about non-fans confusing a navy blue jersey with extra white trim with a royal blue jersey, then surely the Yankees and Mets ought to be required to put the entire team name on their caps? :P

Rumors of the removal of the Colorado and Rapids wordmarks point to a potential kits sponsor. Hopefully a good one. DC United previously had chest stripes and removed them before placing the VW logo on the chest.

Is this the new kit catch-all thread?

Regardless, these are so ugly they might deserve their own thread:

Sierra Leone 2009,

The first thing I thought of are the tacky animal sweatshirts Bret wears on "Flight of the Conchords"

expect this to be paired with a PBR and worn ironically very soon.

the 5280 is cool, but technically wrong since the elevation of Commerce City, CO (where the stadium is) is 5164, not 5280 like Denver.

True, but Commerce City is a suburb of Denver. I wouldn't expect them to be so parochial as to use 5164.

Besides, the number 5280 seems to have attained an almost mystical status in Denver. To an outsider, they use it as shorthand for a way of life.

New, England 09/11 Home Umbro shirt leaked

england-09-11-umbro-football-shirt-kit-eaked.jpg

This seems to be the new England Home shirt for the 09/11 seasons made by Umbro.

The new England kit will be officially launched on April 1st, but there is a good chance that this will be it.

England Umbro Shirt

I received an email showing drawings of a sleeve that match the one on this jersey as well as the red Umbro logo. They were advertising tghis as the new home shirt to be released on April 1st. God I hope this is a joke.
