The nastiest new shirt designs
1. Bolton home
Wanderers have been churning out some pretty awful home kits in recent years, and this is the worst of a bad bunch in OTP’s opinion. As we already mentioned, it looks like Bolton will be fulfilling the Premier League’s barcode quote in Newcastle’s absence.
2. Tottenham home (could easily be away)
Spurs’ new kit has gone down so well with their supporters that they have launched a petition against it. And we can see where the protesters are coming from. The fluorescent mustard ‘v’ on the collar is not very attractive.
3. Everton home
We are normally fans of retro efforts, but Everton’s new shirt misses the mark for us. It wasn’t a great design to replicate in any case, but extending the white triangle to create the plunging neckline was a big mistake from Le Coq Sportif.
4. Chelsea home
Another shirt that has been met with a distinctly mixed reception from the club’s fans, and that is putting it mildly. Comparisons to rugby shirts and concerns over how the panelled design will sit on the average Chelsea fan’s man boobs have been high on the list of complaints.
5. Everton away
Sorry, Toffees. You’ve done the double. This black with pink pinstripe hoops design doesn’t do it for us. We suspect this will go down in the history books as an all time great of bad kits in a few years.
It’s all subjective, of course. Let us know your top five worst kits below.
