Coming up to each season it’s always nice to take a look at some of the new kits that will be sported throughout the new season, and this year there are plenty. From meaning and commemoration (St Pauli), to cool unique designs (Lyon, Marseille and Sampdoria) to old school simplicity (1860, Nottingham Forest and Hadjuk).
An interesting fact to tell your mates in the pub is that all forty Premier League kits next season (ie. just the home and away strips, some clubs use last year’s away kit as their 3rd alternative) are new kits.
Here are ten (really twelve, but the Lyon range is superb) top kits next season.
The Lyon Range
Sampdoria (Away) ………. St Pauli (3rd) ………. Marseille (Away)
Recreativo (away) ………. 1860 Munchen (home) ………. Hadjuk (away)
FC Twente (away) ………. Trabzonspor (home) ………. Notts Forest (home)
OK, I know you’re asking for some truly terrible efforts to go with our top choices, so here are three: Nice’s chequered kilt design, Werder Bremen’s lightning V effort and, of course, Everton’s cringe pink away strip.
