While the Summer has been predictably filled with transfer speculation, though ironically not one major move in or out yet, we have also been awaiting with interest the latest home strip.

The usual pattern was established with distorted images circulating around the internet with varying degrees of success compared to when we at last got to see the new design.

In a strangely low key launch, the players took to the pitch against Chemnitzer in our first pre-season friendly and the talk afterwards was more to do with the new black & white shirt than a typically low key first run-out of the pre-season.

The belief that it’s impossible to go wrong with black and white stripes was massively disproved in the early nineties when the horrific ‘barcode’ strip was launched, surely a mackem involved somewhere in the ‘design’ process!

While the launch of the burgundy/maroon/red shirt earlier went down relatively well, the new black & white one from Puma has been given an almost universal thumbs up.

Keeping it simple is the key and whilst it always takes a little while for your eyes to become accustomed to any new strip, I think Puma have definitely done the business this time.
