New NUFC away kit revealed

The new away strip
Newcastle have finally revealed what our away kit for next season will look like, and on first reflection I actually like it!

Some outlets have reported the kit as being red, but it is actually more like a burgundy/maroon colour which has had some significance throughout our history. Some 120 years ago, when NUFC was first formed, our first kit was a maroon kind of colour which is a rather clever thing to do, given that it’s the 120th anniversary of our very clubs existence.

It also has prominence in recent history as we wore maroon and blue back in 1996 when Kevin Keegan’s entertainers nearly won the title, and again in 2007 although this time we had a navy blue shirt with maroon arms.

I’m not so keen on the goalkeeper kit however. Turquoise is not a particular favourite of mine but then again it’s seems to be the rage these days for goalkeepers to wear rather vulgar and brash colours!

The badges look awful but then I’ve come to expect that from PUMA if I’m being honest. I’ve still not bought one of their shirts and won’t do until I think I’m buying enough quality to warrant £50 of my wages. I’ll stick with the retro look for now, unless the home shirt changes my mind of course or I hear the the quality if shirts has improved beyond the capability of lasting longer than three cycles of the washing machine!

What do you make of them though? Are they a hit or are they a miss?

  1. I quite like it meself but like you say, the quality of it is probably poor. Was hoping the rumours of a new Nike strip were true. Obv not!.
    Heard a rumour that the lads are wearing the new home one tomorrow

  2. Chances are as well that when it goes on sale, the boy will expect me to drop everything and rush out and buy it like every other feckin strip that comes oot! Spoilt little git!

  3. I like it & will be buying it. Had that Maroon & Claret shirt & loved it. It’s still my favourite away top to be honest.

  4. The maroon one looks canny. I don’t care for the Sports Direct advert on the back but then again it is extra advertising for us and more in the coffers!

    Toonsy why haven’t you shown the back and the SD advert. That might sway a lot of opinions the other way.

  5. I say I won’t buy it, but I do need a new one so will probably end up treating myself. Will see what the home one is like first 😆

    Anyway, off away again for four days this afternoon. Going to miss the wife and kid. Still, at least I’m paying for my own family rather than scrounging off the government to support it 🙂

    You mean the hooped claret and maroon one? Wow. . You must be good at distinguishing colours. Have you been to spec savers to see if you are coloured blind? I bet you thought Ferdys white skin blended well with the claret and maroon. 😆

  27. God I hate Liverpool so much. I hate that I can justifiably give the fans of them that i know so much stick for their season yet i’d still swap it without doubt for ours.
    At least our future is brighter (unless they go on a spending spree this summer).

  28. Newcastle’s proved this season that it’s not about the money money money but this shirt from shysters Branson and co. indicate otherwise.

    …Canny shirt though but I’m not going to be lining their pockets at 45 pund a go like. Anyhoo, I’m still wearing that silky silvery one from 1980’s – never get tired of the lasses feeling is up when I’m wearing it!

  32. Thanks for clearing that up [email protected] Nursey just let me out of my special anti-keyboard jacket to pass on my regards. Hope the voices are speaking in English again for you, I hate it when harp on in Klingon too. 😉

  33. …oh, and at 52 fucking quid for rag with iron on transfers, I think I’ll give it a miss until next season as usual and buy last season’s for 20 quid, which is still overpriced.

    Fucking shocking. The quality of club ‘replica’ shirts over the last 10 years and beyond has been getting poorer and poorer, which of course means cheaper to produce. Yet the price still goes up! I might start supporting the Falcons instead, at least you get a half-decent quality shirt. Moan moan.

    We no longer have embroidered club crests, just pissy transfers that will crack after a couple of months, and ALSO have a fucking dirty great logo advertising the shirt sponsor which seems to get bigger each year too. Who am I supporting exactly? NUFC or Virgin Money? Free fucking advertising. Fans are paying through the nose to market Virgin for Richard twatting Branson.

    Takes the piss. Bollocks to the new shirt. I’m buying last year’s. 😡 😎

    (rant over) 😆
