New 08/09 Chelsea Shirt Revealed

chelsea shirt New 08/09 Chelsea Shirt RevealedThe Sun newspaper has published a photograph of the new Chelsea home shirt, which will be available for the 2008/2009 season.

Modeled by Frank Lampard, the new shirt features more of a retro feel than the current Chelsea design. The new shirt features yellow trim lines, which are more prominent than the current blue and white colors. Plus, the jersey features a completely different collar design.

Also of note is the slight difference in sponsor name from the current “Samsung Mobile” to “Samsung.”

Personally, I love the new design. It’s more elegant than the futuristic design of the current shirt. The new shirt has more of a warm feeling. Hopefully, Chelsea and Adidas will replace the horrid flourescent yellow away jersey as well as the third shirt.

Speaking of Premier League shirts, be sure to visit the EPL Talk Shop which features the widest selection of jerseys from Premier League clubs on the Internet. Unlike competing websites, the EPL Talk Shop features shirts from all twenty clubs.

In the meantime, please share your comments below and let us know what you think of the new shirt design.

If you live in the United Kingdom, go ahead and pre-order the replica Chelsea shirt today.
