Manchester City Misses The Mark in Munich Tribute

Seeing Manchester United play in its 1950’s style uniform yesterday in the Manchester derby was a beautiful site to see. It reminded me of an age of innocence where simplicity of design and focus on beauty reigned supreme instead of the shirts of present that are moving billboards.

In contrast, while Manchester United impressed, Manchester City’s choice of retro design was appalling.

While the sky blue shirt was devoid of advertising, the trim lines were very modern as were the fabrics used as well as the design of the shorts and socks. Manchester City had an opportunity here to embrace the 1950’s. Instead, the kit looked too similar to the current Le Coq Sportif one that the team sports.
