All the new kits for the 2014 – 15 premier league season
“The stripes are back!” Southampton announced when they launched their new kit. And they’re not messing around: you even get a choice of vertical (home) or horizontal (away) stripes this season.
Stoke saved quite a lot of money on their away kits this season by buying up a load of Arsenal third kits which hadn’t printed properly, turning them inside out, and popping on a new badge. Genius!
The Swans otherwise solid shirts are still encumbered by those crackpot advertisers’ logos carrying the strangest and most indecipherable writings since the Dead Sea Scrolls turned up in that cave.
No complaints or comments for the home kit, but are we really the only ones puzzled by the ‘guitar string’ look on that away kit? We await with keen interest a fully-functioning musical version which will let fans play ‘Stairway to Heaven’ on the terraces as Mauricio Pochettino leads them to the title. Or ‘Paint it Black’ when they end up in the bottom half of the table. Either way, really.
Full credit to the Baggies for turrning their new kit into a party featuring the winner of a Michael Sheen lookalike contest, Ben Foster in training for a post-football career as a traffic policeman, and a man paranoid about underarm odour.
A very nice retro look for the Hammers’ kits this year. I’m sure they had this exact thing back in 1989 or thereabouts. It’s a bit like getting your new car tax disc and being sure that they’ve used the same colour a few years back.
