It appears Manchester United will be going ahead with the checked shirts we post a few weeks back.

This image, taken in what appears to be a Nike Town store, shows the kit along with Arsenal and Barcelona’s new efforts being modelled on dummies.

Whilst the checked pattern is not as pronounced as in the pics we posted, they still aren’t exactly appealing. As a subsidary of Nike I wonder what we would have to do to get a decent Umbro one?

Arsenal’s isn’t too bad whilst I’m undecided about Barca’s.

What do you think?

    Re the Arsenal kit it’s not black it’s blue. That were once known as the Royal Arsenal hence red White and blue. I do remember a kit in the 60s with red and white shirts, White shorts and White socks with blue hoops on them. Quite like this and the other two.

    Call me crazy, but I like it – especially since they toned down how pronounced the stripes. I may even buy one.

    Now every United fan
    can feel like spiderman!

    Not a fan of the kit, tbh.

    Those with more money than taste might buy one but not for me. Nike seem keener to create a cheap to make shirt than an atractive one.

    I still think an org like MUST could hijack the occasion with a ‘alternative shirt’. Or do what theydid years ago and just wear a scarf.

    The shirt was always a scam.

    To honour Fergie yes but it will insult all scots as that pattern is as bad or worse than the Burberry one. Nothing scottish about it at all unless it is the family pattern of the Dingles.
