Manchester United Kits

United go Scottish with new kit

The title might have slipped through United’s fingers, the strategy regarding this summer’s transfers might still be unknown (and it will, perhaps, remain so for a few months) but at least United have their new kit for the 2012-2013 season.

At 4pm today, the club’s official facebook page published a picture of the shirt United will be wearing next season.

Truth be told, the picture only reveals a small detail below the collar, a curious tartan-like pattern that rumours have described as a tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson’s 25-year-long reign at the helm.

The Manchester United Shirt, part of the ‘Gingham’ collection celebrates the 134th anniversary of the foundation of the club in 1878 when Manchester was at the hearth of industrial revolution, as expressed by the motto embroidered inside the collar: “Forged in industry, striving for glory”.

United continue in their recent habit of unveiling a new kit every season, rather than every two as fans had become accustomed to and might face heavy criticism from their supporters for the design – some of them have already taken to the web to voice their discontent.

Will this be the shirt that will mark United’s resurgence in Europe? Will Hazard, Modric or Martinez ever don this kit?

Only time will tell, for now have a look here for the preview.

    we might as well play with pygamas next season, shame for manchester united, nightmare for nike. I wonder why can’t catch up with city because our ideas of playing football going backwards instead of forward. good luck with this shirt.

    This shirt is pretty disgusting and we are not a Scottish team. Anyone willing to pay £45 to the Glazers for this nonsense should really get a grip.

    Its a tribute to SAF (i think for 25 years at united). Hence the Scottish look. Although a better design would be welcome, at least we should wait to see what the complete kit looks like when worn by the players and then make our opinion.

    I personally think that this jersey will make the Red Devils look tame. They should improve in the jersey’s looks. They are not that stupid. It is an English team. I think the new kit will look great on my mop.

    Whilst it is a shit shirt and i certainly won’t be buying it… the money won’t go to the glazers because the deal with nike sees them pocket the cash from any shirt sales.

    I’d advise people to just not buy the shirt – it won’t affect us one bit.

    10 years ago I found on ebay a pair of United pj’s for my son (unofficial ones, of course) and this new home kit are identical in design. CHILDREN’S RED PLAID PAJAMAS!!!!!!!!!!! FORGET WHAT PLAYER WOULD WANT TO WEAR THIS SHIRT, GET READY FOR THE MOCKING AND THE LAUGHING!!!!!! Why not just put a small likeness of SAF with 25yrs. somewhere on the shirt and call it a day. I HOPE THERE IS GOING TO BE A PETITION OR PROTEST OVER THIS, IF NOT I’LL JUST TROT OUT THE BEAUTIFUL GREY KIT OF DAYS GONE BY. NIKE! BLOODY HELL!

    If it’s a tribute to Fergie it should have horses and a bottle of whiskey emblasoned on it.

    It looks like a picnic blanket….!!!
