Preview of new kits

I'm sure many of you have already seen unofficial images of next season's kit circulating online. For those of you that haven't, and those of you that aren't saving yourself for the official unveiling a week today, check out the rumoured pictures below.

Home kit:
2008-09 home kit

Away kit:
2008-09 away kit

Third kit:
2008-09 third kit

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have realised that these are the UEFA Cup kits (notice the UEFA Cup logo on the right sleeve, not the Premier League one), which will explain why the font is the less traditional typeface we're used to seeing in European competition (and an excuse for the club to sell more shirts).

So, assuming these are the correct kits and this isn't part of an elaborate hoax, what do people think? Personally I prefer the away kit (as I normally do). I'm a fan of the diagonal under-arm stripes on all the kits, and I prefer shirts with collars, so the away and third kits both meet that criterion. Anyway, we shall see what happens next Tuesday when the official kits are launched.

Finally, I wanted to share a suggestion of mine relating to the subject of kits. I am fairly traditional and like the idea that a team's best players wear the squad numbers one through to eleven. Therefore I believe every time a club launches a new kit they should get the option to re-number the players. Take Ledders, Woody and Hutton for example. They're all unquestionably first team players when fit, so shouldn't they be able to wear first team numbers to reflect their status in the side? I appreciate that fans buy shirts with certain names and numbers so it isn't good to change them for the sake of it, but if it was done at the time a new kit is launched then surely that makes good sense?

Ideally players should be numbered 1 - 11 but if you take King for example, he would never want to wear another number.

I don't think there's any real reason for players to wear 1 - 11, it's such a long gone piece of history you might as well suggest cars are preceded by people with red flags...

I play for two teams, the one league you can submit a team sheet like any other league, the other the local FA are funny and insist on the first team being 1 - 11.
I've always worn 14, Ginola being a bit of an icon for me, I hate having to wear a different number for the team that has to be numbered 1 - 11 and I can imagine it's exactly the same for many of the professional players.
That said, I'm glad Modric will be wearing 14 now :-)

Is the Brown Kit going to fall apart like the last one.

This is rubbish. You only have one designated away kit in Europe, so you wouldn't have both of these. Besides, won't at least one of the shirts remain the same as this season's?

With the proposed mass clearout planned for the summer, few are sure they will be with us next year.

But at least Keano can sleep easy now :-)

Thanks for the pics. I'll leave comments until I see the official launch.

However - one thing that's been bugging me a bit. What do people here think of the white shorts?

Personally, I'd much prefer see Spurs play in the white shirts and blue shorts as the team normal colours.

Don't get me wrong, I do like the all-white kit, but only for special occasions - and not only finals etc. - but for key matches, big European nights etc.

Just wondering how many others think likewise?

I agree with topspur about the colour of shorts.

As for the 10:42 question, "will the brown kit fall apart?" I gather it is in fact black. But not sure about the quality.

All white kit should be left for european games as started by Bill Nicholson.

It should be White shirt, blue shorts and white socks.


It looks as if we are turning in Man utd with a complete change in kits every season, i know we had to change when the deal ended with Krappa, but do we need another set of kits again, the club rip us off enough with ticket prices and they know kids is going to want a new kit if and when one comes out let alone three

Darren Alexander said...

Having seen the kits way back on January the 4th I'm too sure they look anything like what you've shown here

they look rubbish, not a fan of Puma kits and loved the tight Kappa kits, especially the blue and white one, ie Carricks final season kit, that was amazing. Want to buy it again but not sure where to get it. Favourite spurs kit in a long time, only thing is for the fat spurs fans ( there are shat loads ) it was too tight!!

ie numbers, keep the squad numbers 1-11 is old school and no player would want that..

They aren't the kits. Thats just someone playing with photoshop.

Third kit is not Brown or Black, its yellow.

llmao my brown kit fell apart aswell absolute shite

I think the kits look like 80's throw backs..... thats not good. The brown is ugly and the blue seems stupid when we wear white. For the life of me I dont understand why we wear our home kit at Man City.

I would like to see the badge be positioned in the middle as I just prefer it there, closer to the heart lol.

Still dont understand why we should charge kits again, all they should do is just drop the 125 years and keep it the same as this seasons.

Laughable fakes and certainly not 'elaborate', more like an amateurish evening's work. If only I had the time to produce this sort of rubbish.

This is bollocks!

I remember last time... and the kits we have now, looked nothing like the pictures posted...

Mr Pedantic said...

All those saying that Spurs should play league games in 'traditional' kit colours, please remember we'd be more 'traditional' in our Blackburn-a-like kit of this season! No thx to that!!!

BigFrank said...

Puma are the worst kit makers in the world, and if this is your new kits, especialy the wolves lookalike one, then dont blame opposing fans if they laugh at you.

Ooh... hideous! Let's hope the official kits look different and that this is a hoax (or at least a bad rendition). Good thing I purchased a 125 anniversary shirt this year.

THESE ARE NOT THE KITS......Why do the numbers appear different on the 1st and 3rd Kits??? At least if your trying to fool someone get it right..........
