Thoughts?

I did like this paragraph in the piece.

"Honestly, they should just leave it plain – the Geordie stripes haven’t looked that good in 20 years – though, knowing Mike Ashley, it’ll probably have a huge advert for scratch cards and legal highs on the front of it by the start of next season."

Absolutely love the design. Fantastic if the Wonga logo won't feature on it too, would get one of these for sure and I haven't had a toon top since 12/13.

Likewise could be back on my birthday list this year without the wonga connection.

Knowing that reprobate, he'll probably announce a new sponsorship deal with Dabiq, Islamic States official glossy magazine (seriously, there is one - look it up).

(Or Paedo's Monthly - which should please UA...)

Awful collar.

Do we have a clue who will sponsor us next season?

I think the collar makes it!

I quite like it. The collar gives it a retro look.

Should be one main colour with a white wing tip.Or no white.
Half & half looks odd. But 125 years im guessing they want that early jersey look.

very nice, have not brought a  modern {tacky adverts} shirt in ages but would buy that.
i have many retro ones though including 1976 blue away one, really trying to find the yellow away one to, from the mid 70s, only one i saw was £500 on e bay! hope the new design looks as good as the pics.

Those ones you mentioned there do usually go for high prices because of their scarcity.

I know they were Umbro not Admiral, but a couple of years ago, ITV4 did a program on the history of Admiral replica kits and how they've influenced replica kit buying history world wide.

There were people there who, as a hobby, collect all the Admiral replica kits. They all said, genuine 70's replica kits, no matter the manufacturer, in excellent condition are really hard to come by, which is why they go for the prices they do.
The holy grail being Coventry Citys 1970's chocolate coloured away kit. None of the passionate collectors, at the time of the programme, had managed to track down either an adult shirt or an affordable shirt.

Be nice if that really is it - best looking home shirt since 95/6 IMHO.
