An exclusive claims that details of the 2018/19 Newcastle United home shirt have been leaked.

Last season saw the club/Puma use a marketing gimmick of creating a new one-off badge for 2017/18, to ‘celebrate’ 125 years in the club’s history

The exclusive from Footy Headlines carries the image below of what is said to be the new shirt and it sees a return to what looks to be the usual badge of previous seasons.

The report adds that they understand this 2018/19 Newcastle United home shirt will be launched shortly.

Last week, Newcastle United confirmed that they were expecting the three new 2018/19 strips to be launched in early July.

In the past, the team has often worn the following season’s new strip on the last day of the season, especially if playing the final game of the season at St James Park – but the 3-0 win over Chelsea saw the 2017/18 Newcastle United home shirt still used.

This is how the new strip will allegedly look:

If this exclusive is on the money, it looks a smart design. Adult sizes will of course have sponsor FUN88 added but children’s shirts will be free of it, due to the rules on promoting gambling to minors.



  • Paul Patterson

    Decent shirt.

    • Rich Lawson

      Would be without Fun 88 splattered across it.

    • Peaco

      Looks cheap and nasty to me. Not a patch on the ‘95/‘96 Adidas kit.

      • Paul Patterson

        They’re all cheap and tacky because they’re all lightweight to help the players. In comparison to the the 95 kit, these are ultra light.

        • Peaco

          Thanks.

  • Leazes.

    They’ve just reversed the black and white bits from last season….. put up a picture of the two together. Black collar and trim to white ……. and the stripes are simply reversed as well…..

    … well that’s saved buying a new design…..

    Boycott it….. Boycott Ashleys stores!….

    ….and Remember the Strawberry place ‘Club Shop’ is a S**** D****t shop in disguise!

    • Waxi

      True and the upside is we will save £50. I still think it’s a right rip off when the shirt only costs about a fiver to make.

      • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

        How much do you pay for trousers, jeans, shirts etc?

        In this case, you get design, advanced fabrics and two brands in Nufc & Puma.

        Given it was £40 in 1992 to buy the ASICS kit, this isn’t bad value.

        • Waxi

          Another way to look at it but if it only costs a fiver to make i think it is poor value but it’s supply and demand. They know the demand will always be high so we will always be ripped off.

          • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

            It is, however, it’s not that much of a rip off these days. The prices have gone up since the 80’s but equally, well below inflation.

            I ask how much you value someone’s time to make the material, the garment, to design, to ship, to merchandise, to pay shop rents, to employ staff. £50 seems very reasonable unless you value your own time at £1 an hour.

          • Waxi

            I can tell you now the year those Adidas shirts came out they cost around £5 to make the rest goes on shipping delivery etc. When your a shop like SD you buy in bulk and the cost goes up to about £10 after shipping so taking profit into account if you sold them for £20 you would still make a 100% profit. The material is polyester which costs buttons and the cost for making the garment in some sweatshop would not have gone up much since those Adidas days. The club do a deal with Puma to wear that brand not the other way around and Puma pick up the cost for design etc. As i stated further up the thread some fat cat at the top is creaming a lot of profit from the fans and it’s the fans that get ripped every year. I could be wrong but i can not see how things could have changed that much since the 90’s.

          • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

            The club receive money from Puma, of course, it’s a form of sponsorship.

            If the cost of manufacture us £5, a selling price if £50 is not so high in my opinion. £8.33 of that is stolen by the government to waste on government things, then the shops have to pay rent, rates (for the local council to waste in employing the willing unemployable) , shop staff distribution staff etc.

            Moreover, nobody is forced to buy the shirt, it’s a choice.

          • Waxi

            Any business will buy a garment and add 100%. If we worked on your theory we would not be able to buy any garment for under £50. We are being ripped off. Yes we would need to take into account of rent and rates and VAT but if you make £10 on every shirt sold and you sell 50,000 shirts you make half a million quid but if you sell 50,000 and you make £40 quid a shirt you make 2 million. We are getting ripped off.

          • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

            There are a lot of folk who bemoan NUFC’s non football income levels as being too low. restricting the profit made on merchandise is not going to give us an edge when buying a centre forward.

            I also think there is an issue of cheapening the brands. I look around at people on a matchday, from the charvers wearing Stone Island to those wearing Armani, these clothing items all have a mark-up way beyond the 100% mark-up you suggest.

          • Waxi

            You now go off on a one as we don’t know what the cost of other brands are but we do have a good idea what a football strip costs so IMHO we get ripped off. I am not going into what our income levels are and what they should be how much is invested in the team training ground advertising corporate income bonuses taxes and the ongoing investment in recruitment on and off the pitch. It is what it is and i will buy the shirt and my season ticket year after year but still have an opinion and it is we and all football fans who buy a replica shirt get ripped off.

          • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

            OK but fans are getting two brands in one when they buy a shirt. Also we have a choice, if we feel we are being ripped off, then demand would fall, we don’t have to buy the shirt.

            Famously, Mike Ashley broke the price fixing ring on football shirts back in the 90’s so the reason why shirts are cheaper now is down to Mike Ashley.

            However, I’d argue that football shirts are no more of a rip off than any other branded item.

      • paul mclaughlan

        All clothing has around a 70% mark up.

        • Waxi

          Paul i worked in retail for years and the mark up is 100% so if a shirt costs a fiver to make you do the maths. We are paying well over the odds for a replica shirt.

          • paul mclaughlan

            I guess it’s where the clothes are made. A hand knitted jumper from The Isle of Harris will cost more at source than a mass produced one from Bangladesh.

          • Waxi

            Spot on.

    • Paul Patterson

      Never been in . .

      • Leazes.

        Good

    • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

      I bought a pair of Chile 62s from Sports Direct in Leeds yesterday, good value.

      • paul mclaughlan

        What colour?

        • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

          Darkest brown

          • paul mclaughlan

            Done well to get a pair as they are deadstock.

          • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

            They had 10, 11 and something even bigger. Clearance it said, usually with SD that doesn’t mean much.

          • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

            The price was very good too.

  • porciestreet

    Why do we HAVE to buy this rubbish that Cashley produces. There muse be an outlet somewhere so we needn’t line fattys coffers.

    • panther

      I used to get a lot of retro stuff from toffs, used to have a shop in town then went online, think theyre still around, back page is alright

      • Geordiegiants

        Be very careful what you buy, because Ashley is involved with that market also.

        • panther

          He got anything to do with back page stowell street?

          • Geordiegiants

            Not that I’m aware.

  • panther

    another £60 ill be denying the fat mess

  • Dont stop bobbi fleckman

    Looks very good, an extra stripe? The sleeve stripes work very well but I don’t like the white sleeve cap, otherwise, as good as we’ve had since ’95.

    I don’t buy football shirts anymore on account of not playing football anymore.

  • Scott Robinson

    100% best quality polyester with real stick on club badge. What a shiny ‘bargain’.

  • Dillon Tovak

    They went a bit left field with this one, it’s wild.

    • Clarko

      Then why don’t all animals have stripes?

      • Geordiegiants

        Fuckinghell Clarko you not know the answer to that?????

        • Dillon Tovak

          Hahaha his reply is ridiculous.
          Why don’t all animals have gills and wings? 😂🤦🏻‍♂️ Imbecile.

    • Leazes.

      You sure it wasn’t lions….. easy mistake to make, lot of similarities there!

      • Dillon Tovak

        Um no 😂

  • Oldgeordie

    What a surprise. Black and white stripes .Would never have guessed it. So what’s new? Just more money for fatso.

    • nufcslf

      My thoughts exactly. Nobody should bother buying one or going to matches with the same old same old of f**k all happening to strengthen the squad. Relegation battle anyone.

  • Reggae86

    I was shocked when I heard that this had leaked, as I was unaware that it contained any fluid, then I realised it must be another one of those recycled bottle ones
