Brown Is The Color: Spurs Unveil New Third Kit

tottenham hotspur1 Brown Is The Color: Spurs Unveil New Third Kit

Premiership Countdown: 19 Days to Go. It’s been a busy weekend for Tottenham Hotspur. First, the Spurs impressively beat Inter Milan 2-1 in a friendly. Second, Michael Carrick joined Manchester United for 18.6 million pounds ($34.6 million). And third, Tottenham unveiled their new third strip. And it’s brown. Yes, as in milk chocolate.

Coventry City, in the 1970s, wore an away kit that was brown. But that was approximately 30 years ago. Now in fashionable 2006, Spurs has decided to wear the brown shirt as their designated away European kit. So depending on how they fair in the UEFA Cup, it’ll be interesting to see how long the kit lasts.

Interesting note: Although friendlies are largely meaningless, Spurs is undefeated during the pre-season after beating the following sides: Bordeaux (2-1), Nice (1-0), Celta Vigo (2-0), Birmingham City (2-0), Stevenage Borough (3-0) and Inter Milan (2-1). Next up are Borussia Dortmund and Real Sociedad.
