Thursday saw the new Newcastle United home kit go on sale for pre-order.
Newcastle fans shocked at the prices, an adult shirt costing £65, shorts £32 and socks £15, making it £112 for the full kit.
These were the prices at both the official NUFC club shop and Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct, Ashley charging Liverpool fans £15 less for their new home shirt, whilst the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Barcelona and other clubs’ fans paying £10 less than Newcastle supporters for their new shirts.
