So, the third kit is unveiled (http://www.evertonfc.com/news/archive/2010/09/17/new-third-kit-revealed).
For me, it is infinitely better than the pink abomination, but do we need a third kit? Is our pink away kit really going to clash with another team's? Has the pink kit sold so badly they went into panic mode and put together a third one?

To my knowledge the only team in Western Europe with pink as their home strip is Palermo in Italy. Have they entered the FA Cup?? Sicily in January would be a lovely trip (I hope there's no replay, though, as those Sicilian scallies would be a handful... I've seen that film)
Also, I hear it will get it's debut against Chelsea on December 4th. Chelsea must clearly be changing their home kit in time for this game.... or could it be the 21 shopping days to Christmas.

I think you'll find the answer is...NO ONE.
We don't need a third kit - its pointless, more greedy tactics from our sham of a board.

Can't see when it will be worn though, as, unless I'm mistaken, there are no home kits in the Prem that will clash with both Blue and Pink!!!!
Gerry @3 - Great post!

Living on the Wirral, you see a big surge when the new kit comes out on the streets the same day, yet it took two weeks to see someone with that pink kit on over this side. I never bought my son it and he has every kit we have had in his two years of living.
I expect to see this a lot sooner in numbers, the only problem will be the people and kids wearing it will be freezing, instead of a nice new summer kit to wear... Absolutely clueless marketing again.

Seriously, I love it. Kinda reminds me of the Manure white version a decade back where it was a hot seller.
Damn. There goes my month salary. Landon better come fast or I'm suing.

I like the idea of the third being a throwback type of jersey. Do we need a third? No. But this is a nice way to celebrate our club's 132 years.

I think they did something similar almost ten years ago with the salmon and black outfit. Promoted it but went with the grey and black as the alternate, but I can't remember for certain.

I agree it?s not needed, but it looks smart. I bought the away shirt as I thought the home shirt was a bit dull (however the more I see the boys play in it the more I like it) I was going to buy the home one but now I think I?ll get this instead (might still get the home one in the New Year when it will be reduced).
Also, I?m sure I read somewhere that the pink away shirt was the fastest selling away shirt in history/ for a long time (I?m not sure where I read this so unfortunately can?t back this up).
TBH, I?d see the boys play in red if we won the league? ok maybe not red but you get my point NSNO

Plain and simple are always the best and should always be kept that way, but as stated above we should always keep to the same colours and Amber is Everton away.

Beats Preston away !

Sod it I'll get the 4th kit, pink with vanilla bubbles and mauve shorts. WTF
24 Posted 18/09/2010 at 00:13:16
If we play Blackburn, Wigan, Citeh Brum, Chelsea we play in amber & blue. If we play Wolves and maybe Blackpool we play in Blue & White. Simples.
I know the club needs money but better marketing would negate the need to keep relying on rainbow kits. Now how about a 5th strip that'll make a few quid eh?
25 Posted 18/09/2010 at 05:02:21
Love the hoops. This should definately be the 2nd kit. I didn't mind last year's black / pink, but this year's is just way too over the top. It's circus-like.
Hope they early-retire the Salmon/Pink and go with this one as the true 2nd kit.
26 Posted 18/09/2010 at 13:31:38
It looks pretty decent, way better than our home kit. The patch on the chest portion looks like a bloody bib!
27 Posted 18/09/2010 at 13:24:18
Football shirts are now fashion accessories that is why we have blue,black, white one's because they're not just worn at the match...so I can see the thinking behind it.
Me personally...we should only ever consider the following as kits :
Home : ROYAL blue shirts white shorts white socks
Away : AMBER shirts Blue shorts amber socks
For me thses are the TRUE colours of
EVERTON FC...always have been and always WILL be....and I'll wager if these stupid fuckers who run the club would listen to us fans...99% would say the same.

I'll post this design I made for an Everton away kit again...
I'd love to see that next year, combined with...
