The new away kit :(

Comments (55)

Here is what might be the disgusting away kit:

I was horrified. I would much prefer the hot pink breast awareness kit that we had a few years ago. If it is pink may it be hot and not salmon. What are everyone's opinions?

It's great – we all knew it was going to be pink. So what — as long as it ain't red.

Bloody Horrific!

I would be gutted if I had to go another year not buying our kit because it is a pink monstrosity!

There's always the home shirt to wear!

I like last season's away strip and not the home one so much but have both anyway. But can't imagine myself getting this shirt!

Last season's black and pink number wasn't that bad — this is horrendous, have we sent one to Mountinho to get his opinion?

As I say, I don't mind it — vive la difference an' all that.

My main concern is being lumbered with Le Coq. Average at best designs. One more year with Umbro may have seen the classy new tailored kits. Spose it's better than the lot Wolves and Birmingham have gone with. The best kit home or away we had in years was the 02-03 Puma tight fitting home kit.

Looks boring too. I mean how difficult can it be sprucing up the layout and design. It looks shoody work me thinks.

It's ugly and unimaginative; however, there looks to be some pixelation/colour distortion around the Chang logo which makes me think this could possibly be fake.

Get rid of Le Coq Sportif!!! How are we ever going to sell shirts if they keep producing this muck? The home jersey was bad enough but this is just scandalous.

Why can't a supposed big club like ours get a contract with Addidas or Nike... at the very least Puma or Umbro?? All I can say is, I hope to fuck this is a fake!!!

Looks quite dodgy but as with most tops, it may look better on an in real life.

It may be fake, too; as someone has pointed out, the Chang logo has is distorted around the edges... photoshopped perhaps?

I absolutely refuse to believe that is a real kit. I was disappointed with this season's offerings and looking forward to getting the 2010-11 home kit so I hope they make it a good one otherwise it will be two seasons without it.

Come on Le Coqué!!

My last two kits were Umbro's and it may be again at this rate.

There is no way that can be our new away strip. If it is and Everton have agreed for that to be the design then the marketing department is a complete shambles. Who in the right frame of mind would agree to a design like that? The colour doesnt bother me so much (I'm not saying it's nice) but the styling is hideous.

That's a goalie's shirt. All goalie's shirts look different to the rest of the team's.

ps: If I was Tim Howard, I would ask for a transfer if forced to wear that.

It might be cos it's a poor quality pic, but it looks red rather than pink to me. We CANNOT play in red, ffs!

I actually quite lliked the black/pink number from this season — why change so drastically?

Oh and for the record, blue for a boy and pink for a girl is a relaitvely new concept.

Pink was considered the traditional colour for boys and blue for girls in the 19th century.

Part of the reason why blue was seen as the traditional colour for GIRLS is because the Virgin Mary is dressed in blue.

So maybe its US who are the girlies!

Well in that case, Chris - did you know that the term boy is also pretty new. Back in the 16th century, boys were known as 'knave girls' and girls were known as 'gay girls'

The term 'boy' was used to refer to servants and not to children at all.

The plot thickens........eh boys!

This is clearly a wind up... Someone has bought a cheap woman's blouse from Primark (look at the state of the neck... even Davie Unsworth would have trouble filling that out) and printed the Everton badge, sponsors name etc on the front. and then taken a photo of it in the house.

Unless of course Le Coq Sportif head office resembles the upstairs bedroom of terraced house...

Then again!?

Sorry, I'll shut up now! It's surely not going to be our away kit — it really does look like a training top.

I reckon it's a white training top that someones dyed pink for a wind-up.

I like it, I've always had dubious taste. What's wrong with pink? Cos it's a girl's colour? Fucking grow up.

I like the point about Stade Francais as well, also mention Palermo, spiritual home of the Sicilian mafia, their team wears pink.

Technically I still object, because I think our away kit should be amber, which it hasn't been for as long as I can remember, but I don't object because it's a loud or a girl's colour.

Dave Lynch (25) is spot on. This is Tim Howards issue more than anybody elses.

Its an obvious Keepers Jersey.

Even if it isnt. If pinks good enough for Barcelona, its good enough for me

"Good luck looking manly in this one, lads..."

Oh, the homophobia. Come on, Gentlemen, this is the 21st century, and salmon pink and navy blue IS a historic combination for the Toffees. Personally, I prefer it to the current 'lucky' black and pink shirt.

I do hope the change kit is salmon pink next season, as a mark of recognition of it being the 120th anniversary of our first Title success, when we played in that colour. However, I do hope that isn't the design — hopefully they'll go for something with a hint of the rugby shirt style that was favoured back in the 19th century.

The new away kit should be black with the salmon pink diagonal stripe that we wore when we were nicknamed "the Black Watch" — and not that shitty one from last season that was supposed to be a tribute to it.

I think this is a hoax — it looks like one of the training kits dyed pink... at least I hope so 'cos the kit is minging! Both of last season's kits were disappointing so let's hope LCS come up with a decent shirt this year.

This is definitely next season's away shirt; this is a leaked picture and suppliers Kitbag are having kittens over it getting out and are terrified of any adverse reaction. I personally think it's fucking awful and must've been designed in the Coq Sportif office in the Paris gay quarter. Also, Everton's players have said they hate it.

What happened to tradition? Someone start a campaign to bring back the Amber and Blue!

This is real. I was in Everton Two the other week and asked one of the staff about the new away kit; he described this kit to a tee. He said it is the same color as David James's Pompey kit.

Anyone have scoop of the new home kit? If it's just as awful I may as well grab the discounted kit whilst stocks last. The lesser of two evils.
