PICTURES: What Do You Think Of The New Manchester United Kit?

In May, The Republik of Mancunia revealed pictures of potential away kits for the 08/09 season.

It has today been announced that one of those shirts which had been leaked will officially be our away kit next season, as we defend our English and European titles.

I can only imagine what comments are going to be made in reference to America and the Glazers upon seeing our red, white and blue away shirt…

It’s been a while since I’ve liked an away shirt as much as the black kit we’ve had this season, so I’m rather disappointed to see it replaced with this.

Do you like our new shirt?

    You Know What I just dont like this one.

    They should have sticked with Black one.

    It was awesome.

  2. Dennis Axisa says:

    what’s in a shirt….the results and winning cups that count……

  3. raymond says:

    its definately not nice,

  4. Patrik says:

    I actually like them. It’s just a little unusual to see United in that colour-combination, but I think you’ll get used to it after a few games.

  5. NorwegianDevil says:

    Where the hell does the blue come from? As far as I can recall our colors are red, white and black.

    I kinda like the shirt, but hate the colors. Replace the blue stripes and the blue shorts with black and it would have been a really cool jersey.

    With the blue in there we look like Chelsea in disguise! Disgusting!

    Lets all just pretend it’s the Norwegian colors and not the American :D Much better!

    In honor of Solskjær :D

  8. Konben says:

    The blue shorts is really bad.

    Make a all white kit for Ronnie so he can stay at ManU.
    Is there a new home kit comming out ??

  9. Vincent Azzopardi says:

    I like it for the only reason that it reminds me of the russian flag and colours and of course of Moscow last May. On the other hand “White” reminds me of traitors. So I prefer black.

  10. Tom F says:

    I actually really like our all white 06/07 away strip. The black one was nice too.

    This one is new and once we get used to it I don’t think those blue shorts will look as Ugly.

    We’ll probably still play in the black strip on occassions so it won’t be all bad.

  11. Tom F says:

    No there isn’t a new home kit coming out.

    The current red one is 2007/2009.

  12. Tre says:

    Did you watch the video of the photo shoot at Red Rants? I’m disappointed Anderson was at the photo shoot but NOT in the final pictures of the kit. Come on! Anderson-son-son. I noticed that he was with Tevez in most of the shots, do you think that’s because they both speak Portuguese? I know Anderson’s English is awful and Tevez played for Corinthians in Brazil for a few years, so he must be one of the few players Anderson can talk to.

  13. Service says:

    Bit plain for my liking and what is with the blue PE shorts!

  14. jesbit says:

    the blue’s all wrong.makes rio of all guys look kinda meek.we the european champs deserve nothing less than the black.

  15. Andy says:

    I don’t quite understand why they’re coming out with a new away strip for the coming season. Don’t strips normally run for a couple of season before being replaced? The black one was in use only during the 2007/2008 season, before that we had the white “retro” one with gold trim (2006/2007) season. How can they justify yet another new one. This money spinning exercise of regularly updating the club’s strip is getting ridiculous if it’s going to start happening every season!

  16. Ed says:

    Not only does this look rubbish, it’s very similar but not as good as our last white kit. Should have stuck with the black one, best kit we’ve had in a long time.

  17. eric the king the king the king says:

    black kit is my fav, and now its gone :(

  18. JB says:

    Sorry, I loved the black kit. This one doesn’t cut it for me.

  19. sperry85 says:

    Clearly Ronaldo is leaving. Wouldn’t Ronaldo have been the first chosen to model this? Conspiracy!!!!!!

  20. Ron says:

    Its OK…doesnt matter I only buy the home shirt anyway.

  21. Markus Revolver says:


    bye bye black kit

  22. SpitFire says:

    They should have brought back the jersey we had a few years back, white with red (i think) vertical lines on it. that for me, is the best lookin jersey ever! also the one we were during the munich tragedy looked good too. this is whack. she should nvr wear blue.

  23. Mr Fox says:

    Why is everyone making such a big deal out of this? … we’ve had white away kits for years.

    I personally think it looks just the same as our last white kit, and not too different from the one before, or the one before that.

    The only reason why we keep bringing out white kits is so that we can justify having a 3rd kit (for when we play at Arsenal and Sunderland … and I guess Stoke now)

  24. jsos says:

    sperry – good point, however, if you go on the United site to their official store, they’ve launched a whole line of Ronaldo apparel that’s featured on the homepage. Seems like alot of hassle if he’s off

  25. Drew Vader says:

    the black one was AWESOME, sad to see it go. the black at anfield and the emirates looked outstanding this last year, oh well.

  26. Ryan says:

    glad i bought the black kit while i could. certainly will not be buying this one.

    “what’s in a shirt….the results and winning cups that count……”

    last i checked there was a shirt released today and united haven’t played a match in almost a month. so we talk about the issue at hand.

  28. Nick says:

    Would have been daft to have included Ronaldo in the marketing for this kit today while his future is so up in the air. If Portugal go out tonight and he comes out tomorrow saying he wants to leave, any promo pics for the new kit with him in would leave us looking bloody daft.

  29. Phoenixred says:

    I like the shirt, the collar looks great, but the shorts are atrociously fugly.

  30. Jas Rai says:

    United and blue…….no thanks

  31. Jas Rai says:

    Plus the AIG makes me physically sick after seeing it on the giant poster of the Busby Babes….passion > profit

  32. s6e6y6o says:

    Best away kit… kit!!
    Everything else is ordinary!

  33. Mike says:

    I think it’s an awful kit. The black kit is so clean and stylish, this looks like a championship clubs kit… not good at all. But as long as we win we can do it in rags!

    As for CR7 let’s get rid of him and get some players that really wanna stay at this club. He’ll deteriorate at Real. That life will eat him up and he’ll en up in MLS doin’ movies and shit. Bye bye and thanx for the goals now someone else will fill thoose shoes as always

  34. chrispus says:


  35. iain says:

    Looks like Chelsea’s new away shirt, not United’s…

  36. Mike says:

    Where does the blue come from????

    I take it none of you remember 1968 then?

  37. DanS says:

    I like this new kit. Yes the black kit was one of the best we’ve had for a while. But guess what… you guys can still wearing it – so stop complaining!

  38. Andrew says:

    Thank you, Mike, for pointing out where the blue comes from and why it is important. I am not a fan of this kit but i’m not going to moan about the blue because it is the color we wore when we won our first European Cup. It was good enough then, it’s certainly good enough now.
