Watch out, opponents of Newcastle United! We look like a street, so, um, feel free to run over us?
So, it turns out that the leaked photos of next year's home kit were real after all. The NUFC Official Site has some photos, along with information about ordering the newest kit. If you go to the Welcome Page of the site, you can see Cheik Tiote and Hatem Ben Arfa celebrating with Kevin Nolan, having presumably just scored a fake goal, while Steve Harper looks on. Yay.
I, for one, was really glad when Puma kicked Adidas to the curb (I hate the Adidas stripes going down the sleeve), but to me this is an atrocious look. The two white stripes look like the middle stripes on a road. I was originally very vocal about the white sleeves, but on further review, I don't care nearly as much about that as I do that the traditional black and white stripes have been thrown to the curb. Perhaps we'll get some improvement in the away and third kits, though I'm not holding my breath.
What do you think?
