Manchester City Unveils New 07/08 Home Shirt

man city.home Manchester City Unveils New 07/08 Home Shirt

Manchester City today unveiled its new home shirt for the 2007/2008 Premier League season. Designed by manufacturer Le Coq Sportif, the design represents the most radical departure in a design of a football shirt for a Premiership club so far.

The new shirt designs revealed thus far have been more predictable (Spurs, Everton, Newcastle, Blackburn, Bolton and Man United). But this one, as with the Le Coq Sportif kits that Tottenham Hotspur wore in the early 80s, is quite unique.

What is so different about the shirt is the unusual collar, the size and location of the Man City crest on the shirt, the apparent size of the sponsor’s name and the sponsor’s logo on the right shoulder.

Just the shirt for cross-town rival’s Man United features a sponsors logo that appears too prominent on the shirt, Man City suffers a similar fate. For me, the Man City crest is too close to the Thomas Cook logo. I also feel that the Thomas Cook logo on the right shoulder is unnecessary. If anything, why not put a MCFC emblem there?

The pin-stripes are an interesting touch. When was the last Premier League team that wore those?

Based on the new design of the shirt, it looks too classy for a side managed by Stuart Pearce!
