53% – No, not under any circumstances
The impact of all these miserable years under Mike Ashley and due to the way he has acted, Newcastle fans desperate not to give any money to him that they can possibly avoid.
This leading to only one in seven (14%) of NUFC fans polled, saying they would but the new Newcastle United 2021/22 home shirt.
However, if Mike Ashley leaves, that figure goes up to 47% of supporters willing to buy the official replica kit, almost half the fans who answered our poll.
Yet more proof, if it were needed, that Newcastle United are heading nowhere in a positive sense, until Mike Ashley is history.
‘Newcastle United and Castore have unveiled the club’s new home kit for the 2021/22 Premier League season.
The kit, which is available to buy NOW at shop.nufc.co.uk, features a retro-inspired black and white shirt with a mandarin collar, referencing the famous jersey worn during the ‘Entertainers’ era of the mid-1990s.
The new design features a black stripe down the shirt’s centre, wider white stripes either side and large black side panels, with light blue accents beneath the collar buttons and across the back to compliment the colour of the scroll on the club’s famous crest.
As a nod to the club’s supporters, the words ‘Black and White Army’ adorn the inside of the collar, while the Castore slogan ‘Better Never Stops’ is inscribed at the base of the shirt.
All adult shirts also feature the club’s primary sponsor, FUN88, in the company’s trademark blue across the chest.
The kit is complete with traditional black shorts, with a thin white and light blue side stripe, and black socks which feature a white turnover and light blue trim.
LASCELLES ON NEW KIT
Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles, who took part in the kit photoshoot, said: “I’m a big fan of the new home kit. The players have been really impressed with what they have seen so far.”
“It’s obvious that a lot has gone into the technical side too, so that the match and training kit is functional and benefits the players on the pitch. We’re looking forward to stepping out in it over the season and to seeing our fans in their shirts inside the stadium again.”
The shirt has been expertly crafted by Castore to be lightweight, highly breathable and moisture-wicking, with enhanced ventilation provided by mesh underarm panels.
Made from high-stretch fabric, it offers exceptional ease of movement to maximise performance and comfort.
