Manchester United has revealed their new home shirt and kit for the 2013-14 season. The new kit is made by Nike. Manchester United’s new kit launches are some of the most anticipated thanks to their massive worldwide following. Leaked images of the new kit have been doing the rounds on the web for a few weeks and today’s official launch confirms that many of the images were accurate.
This Manchester United away shirt from the 1995-96 season has gone down in history as one of United’s most controversial kits. The shirt was popular amongst the fans despite it’s controversial design and colour, which was primarily grey. However, it’s real claim to fame came in April 1996, when United were playing Southampton and losing 3-0 at half-time. Continue reading
The new Premier League season is here. What have the football kit designers come up with this season? Have they stuck to your club’s traditional kit design or thrown everything out and started from afresh? Take a look below for Premier League clubs A to M and see what you think. Will you be proud to wear your club colours this season, or will you be wearing a retro shirt because you can’t stand your shirts new look?
This new Arsenal shirt for the 2012-13 Season certainly looks like an Arsenal home shirt. The most notable change is the addition of blue to the sleeves, reflecting a British feel to the shirt. Nothing too controversial with this kit and it should be well received by Gooners.
Nike has been a little more bold with the away strip, with a purple and black hooped design that is similar to the 2007-08 Season. There is red trim to the sleeves. The away shirt is likely to be a little more divisive than the home shirt, but overall I think the shirt will prove to be a popular design.

They’ve been a little more daring with the away shirt, opting for a vibrant lime green colour, with navy trim. The design may challenge the traditionalists, but fans will be hoping the team can be as bold this new Season.
Arsenal fans look away…here’s a photo you didn’t want to see; Robin van Persie in a Manchester United shirt. Robin van Persie United shirt available here.
It seems Robin van Persie has been given the number 20 for his first season as a United striker. This signing is a bold move by Sir Alex Ferguson and a clear signal of his intent to wrestle the Premier League title back from arch rivals Manchester City.
Ferguson often bemoans the lack of value there is in the current transfer market and the signing of van Persie goes against Ferguson’s and United’s recent transfer policy. Sir Alex is often shipping out players when they reach their late 20’s, and yet here he is paying a reported £24 million for a 29 year old striker with an unfortunate injury record. Have United got value for money? That remains to be seen. Continue reading
