It is definitely mixed messages coming from Newcastle United fans with the launch of the club’s latest change strip, or ‘away’ strip as we used to call them in old money.

It will be interesting to see how sales register for what is sure to prove a topic of much conversation amongst Toon fans.

Beauty of course is always in the eye of the beholder, or rather whoever has the money in their pocket.

What do you think, is this red/maroon/burgundy creation just right to be worn on the terraces and every beach from Whitley Bay to the White sands of wherever you are off to this summer?

Will it be a hit or a miss when you are out in the Toon or a kick around in the park?

Is it a must have for the kids or are they counting the days until the ‘other’ away strip and home one come out?
