On Tuesday, ‘leaked’ images of a new Newcastle strip started circulating.

It was claimed to be the new 2015/16 Newcastle third kit, though some suggested it could be the new training kit.

However, the shirt then appeared later that day on sale via Puma’s USA website and is referred to there as the ‘Newcastle Cup Replica Jersey’ and is available for $90.

However, Thursday morning has seen Newcastle United officially ‘launch’ their latest strip and indeed it is the one that everybody saw on Tuesday.

In the sales text released by the club, they refer to it as indeed the new ‘third’ kit, with no mention of it being the new ‘cup jersey’ to coincide with the club’s new found decision to allegedly try in the cup competitions.

This is Newcastle United’s brand new Puma third kit for the 2015/16 season.

The peacoat-navy and bright plasma coloured strip – modelled by Jack Colback, Ayoze Perez, Fabricio Coloccini and Massadio Haidara.

Like the home kit, which was released last month, the shirt features a new Puma ‘formstripe’ design on the sleeves but this time it’s a less obvious tonal construction, with a clean diagonal stripe design on the chest and front.

The shirt also features a traditional round neck construction for uncomplicated performance, and additional mesh ventilation panels are added under the arms to improve breathability and player comfort.

The latest home kit which was released in May met with mixed reviews (using this same awful tagline – ‘Divided we are weak’ crossed out and then ‘United we are strong’)

However, that was always going to be a hard sell when you take into account the ongoing unhappiness with the club/shirt sponsor and the anger toward Mike Ashley, with many fans boycotting all club merchandise and indeed anything else that puts any cash in the woner’s pocket.

Purely on the shirt design, the new home kit’s biggest criticism was the fact that the back of the shirt is completely white, with only blue at the very bottom/tail, meaning unless yoy get name and number on then it looks pretty poor.

    I can barely contain my excitement. I wish they put as much effort into signing some quality players as they do into flogging tatty sportswear with wonga emblazoned over it.

  • Paul Patterson

    You could come up with the most amazing design, but if it has W***a on it, I WON’T BUY IT!!!!!

    I also don’t like Puma, I like Adidas, Mike Ashley/S****s D****t are in dispute/shun Adidas (and Nike).

    Understand?

    Why is it pink?

  • Deluded

    Did that POINTLESS ‘fans forum’ pick this thing again instead of asking real questions?

  • Slomma

    Never mind the new 3rd strip – when are we going to see some transfer action? It’s been over a week now and McClaren still hasn’t even appointed his backroom staff! Just what the hell is going on at SJP?

  • Sickandtiredstill

    ashley the human cancer Canny . Got a couple of adidas shirts from the good ol’ days, anyhoo!
    I won’t touch the puma ones, even if they were normal and without wonky sponsorship!
    buying this 5h1t is simply putting money in fatboys ‘skyrocket’, innit?

    We’ll have to bear with this embarrassing carry-on but we’ll still be here long after fatboy’s left Toon!
    ASHLEY OUT!

  • gazchampion

    See my post below… if I HAD to buy a Puma shirt I’d definitely iron this over the wonky sponsor!

    Ashley OUT!

  • mrkgw

    Whilst I don’t particularly favour the Wonga sponsorship remember the fact that it was they, who gave back the great old name of St James Park.

  • NottsToon

    You believe that? Wow, just wow.
