The launch of Newcastle United’s latest away/change strip sparked much debate, some claimed they couldn’t wait to get their hands on one while others said they wouldn’t wear a ‘red’ shirt for any amount of money.
To get an overall view we simply asked in our poll ‘Love it or hate it, would you wear Newcastle United’s new red/maroon/burgundy away kit’?
Many thanks to the thousands of you who voted and we can now reveal that 77% voted Yes they would wear it and 23% No.
The only figure that really matters is how many fans actually do put their hands in their pockets but it is a resounding number who have come down on the side of liking it.
It will be interesting though finding out how people vote when the new home strip and other away/change strip are revealed later this year.
As for anybody who questioned why anyone is using ‘red’ to describe the shirt, many fans have claimed that it is ‘maroon’ which in the dictionary is described as ‘deep or dark red’.
While the official launch description is ‘burgundy’ – the dictionary description being ‘similar to other shades of dark red such as maroon’.
So there you have it in black & white…
