[Soccer] EPL Shirt Changes for 2007/2008 Season


 Share

Recommended Posts

It's never too early to start looking at the new kits that the Premiership clubs will be unveiling this summer for the 20072008 Premier League season.

There's already been a lot of activity, but here's what we know so far:

Arsenal:

Will be keeping their same home shirt, but will be coming out with a new away shirt from Nike.

Aston Villa:

Randy Lerner's club has signed an agreement with Nike to provide new Aston Villa 2007/2008 kits. Goodbye Diadora.

Blackburn:

Rovers will be releasing a new home and away shirt presumably from Lonsdale, but not confirmed.

Bolton:

Reebok is synonymous with Bolton both in the name of their stadium and on their shirts. But, as many of you know, Adidas bought Reebok more than a year ago.

The Reebok shirts are supposed to transition away, but we'll have to see whether Bolton moves to Adidas shirts or not this summer.

Chelsea:

The west London side will be unveiling new away and third shirts this summer. There's a possibility that the design of them may resemble the Adidas template design (pictured above). Adidas typically sticks to one template for all the clubs that wear Adidas, so it's possible that Chelsea will release a design similar to this (but with a different color palette obviously).

Liverpool:

The Reds will unveil a new home and away shirt this summer, which may also resemble the Adidas template design pictured above.

Manchester City:

The rumors are that Manchester City will be switching from Reebook to Le Coq Sportif jerseys this summer, although their current home shirt is supposed to be used through the 2007/2008 season.

Manchester United:

Both 2007/2008 Manchester United kits for home and away will change this summer to a new design from Nike.

Newcastle United:

Newcastle is scheduled to unveil new home and away shirts this summer from Adidas.

Tottenham Hotspur:

The 2007/2008 Spurs jersey, for home and away, will be unveiled this summer.

West Ham United:

After a long relationship with Reebok, West Ham United will be wearing new home and away shirts this summer from Umbro.

Not many clubs will change, there is a rule something like where you have to have the same home shirt for at least 2 seasons.

I remember pompey got stung with a fine because they changed the shirt too early.

You know any more on this rule?

I will be annoyed if Liverpool bring out a new home kit, home kits are meant to be released every two years, where away kits are meant to be released every year. It is stupid.

its an insult to fans.... they need to stop ****ing us around.

I thought that rule was for all kits, not just home kits. That's what the 3rd kits are for, so for example:

In the first year you have a new home kit & new away kit.

Then in the second year you have the same home kit, a new away kit, and the old away kit goes to the 3rd kit.

Then in the third year you get a new home kit, a new away kit, and last years away kit goes to the 3rd kit.

That way, you can introduce two new kits and still get by the 2-year rule by using last years away kit as the 3rd kit.

If the 2-year rule is true then most of the post from that blog is totally incorrect...

I really like the current Arsenal away kit, Nike always seem to make nice football shirts. (I'm not an Arsenal Fan)

Yeah I like it...but I think we are allowed to like other teams kits...I remember I bought a Real Madrid shirt a few years back because I liked it...also I want to buy a Lyon Shirt...lol

I was gonna pick up the Brazil away shirt but my friend got one the other week so might go for something else. Just found the Argentina home shirt is going for ?12.99 here so might get that. I don't really buy football shirts so don't know where to look, do you know of any good online shops?

Ha ha, yer it was nice of them to put Unicef on there shirt, considering they never normally have a sponsor, and they are doing it for charity :). Just shows they are not money grabbing gits like a lot of other teams out there.

I don't quite like it when they change they home shirts every season as it's demeaning to the fans. I like to get a few jerseys here and there when I have the budget for it. I've got Inter Milan, Hertha Berlin, Valencia, England, Holland and Man United jerseys in my collection. I was a bit sad though that I couldn't pick up the current Germany jersey as I have virtually no money. I also like the colours of Olympique de Marseille but it's quite hard to get it here in Malaysia.

i doubt liverpool will release a brand new home kit, they normally change every two years, so in the 09/10 season we *should* see the new home kit, but they'll probably change the away kit, then let that go on the 2 year rotation, like the england kit does.

I really liked Arsenal's maroon home kit from last year. It looked so much better than their usual red and white.

Supposed to be cranberry.

It was awful.

Their yellow one couple of seasons ago was great.

I liked their blue and green one from the 80's, that was great.

I would prefer Arsenal home to be red and white, but lose all that nasty trim.

I don't think Arsenal's is going to change either.

It says in the first post that according to the article."Arsenal:

Will be keeping their same home shirt, but will be coming out with a new away shirt from Nike."

Yea I agree, I hated it at first but it grew on me.
