Newcastle United – Just Like Watching Brazil?

8 years ago

Yet another new strip has been unveiled by Newcastle United, a third (European?) strip to go with the blue away and latest black & white home one.

The latest one features a yellow top, blue shorts and white socks, which is almost in line with the classic Brazil strip, though Newcastle’s new one is definitely more ‘yellow’.

Club directors have claimed that the W**** factor hasn’t put fans off and that this season’s black & white release has been the best selling strip of recent years, anecdotal (with our own eyes) evidence would appear to be at odds with that.

Home matches have seen plenty of supporters in black and white but from what I’ve seen, a clear majority of them appear to be home strips from recent seasons and retro tops from previous eras.

With this new third strip it will be very hard to mix that up with any other and we’ll get a decent idea of how successful sales are very quickly, it goes on general sale on Thursday 17 October..
