Classy kits for the new season
2. Manchester United home
Some informal dip-sampling suggests that this is a bit of a Marmite kit. While OTP would rather eat a football shirt than any yeast-based spreads, we do like this kit a lot. It is a bit of a return to the old school for United, evoking memories of their kits of yesteryear. It also looks like the sort of kit you might win trophies wearing.
3. Manchester City away
We like all of City’s kits, but the away kit gets the nod on the grounds that it is the only brand spanking new one for the 2010/11 season. It is typical of the sleek designs coming out of Umbro in the last couple of years and it is very nice indeed.
4. Arsenal away
Nike have finally found a use for all those old off-cuts from the redcurrant home strip of 2005. They have been recycled to very good effect as the trim to the regularly awful Arsenal yellow away shirt.
5. Sunderland home
The Tombola sponsor’s logo is the dodgiest aspect of this kit, but overall in the lottery that is Premier League kit design Sunderland have done pretty well. More good work from Umbro with a kit that has a definite nod towards Latin football.
