Is This Man City’s New Home Shirt for 09/10 Season?

new manchester city home shirt Is This Man Citys New Home Shirt for 09/10 Season?

Could this be Manchester City’s new home shirt for the 2009-10 season?

We knew that Le Coq Sportif had been dropped in favor of Umbro, and that Thomas Cook’s days as the shirt sponsor were numbered. And that Man City had talks with Etihad Airlines. But is the above photo the genuine article or a fake?

To me, the football shirt looks like it’s inspired by an Arsenal design albeit without the red. Overall, it’s a pretty smart design. However, the blue lines along the side are unusual and seem to be floating in thin air. And the size and alignment of the Umbro logo and team crest seem out of line. My verdict is that it’s a fake. But in the world of football shirt designs, you never know.

What do you think? A fake or the real deal? Click the comments link below and share your opinion.
