A picture of the new Portsmouth away shirt for the 2008/2009 season has been leaked. Manufactured by Canterbury, the white and blue shirt design has a retro look about it especially with the old school collars.

  1. New crest, 110 years under it, collar. I generally like the design, but it has too much blue in it to be used away to teams like Blackburn, Chelsea, Everton. I hope the home kit isn’t the exact opposite in color. The third kit will once again be black, which I think is unoriginal. They talk of a 4th kit for Europe, but we have to get there first.

    The entire home kit will be blue as well. Almost 100 years of tradition wearing blue shirt/white pants/red socks will be gone. Definitely don’t like that. It was distinctive. All blue is bland.

    Now… who’s name and number will I get on it…

  2. It does look uncannily like a cricket jersey. Dont think thats a bad thing though. Theres a certain appeal about it.

  3. Ooops the above post was supposed to go in the Italian Euro 2008 roster thread.

    That said, Portsmouth’s jersey is pretty sharp even though I would have a hard time going out in a shirt that has “printing solutions” so prominently featured.
