New promoted Premier league team, Newcastle United today launched their revolutionary new kit to mixed reviews.
The new kit has a striking white and black vertical stripe design and the club marketing director wasn’t sure how it would go down with fans when asked by the media.
“Obviously it’s totally different to any other kit we’ve put out but we think it’s time to modernise and get with the times; after all we’ve had the same kit for pretty much the whole of the 125 years we’ve been going”.
Newcastle fans are unsure about the new design claiming that the old black and white stripes were much more their colour than the new white and black design.
“I think this new white and black stripe monstrosity will make me look well fat, pet!” said Geordie McToon on social media “not sure i wanna be seen without me Wonga top on either”.
The Newcastle marketing team are standing by their design by saying if Mike Ashley can look thin in the new kit, then anyone can.
