A photograph of Tottenham Hotspur’s home jersey for the 2009-10 season has been leaked (pictured above).
Designed and manufactured by Puma, the new design looks completely different than the current Spurs shirt. The biggest difference of the new white shirt with navy blue trim is the yellow trim that has been added to accentuate the design. Tottenham shirts throughout the years have historically been white and navy blue. As far as I can tell (thanks to Historical Kits), the only time their home shirt had yellow in it was back in the 1896-1898 seasons when Tottenham’s home kit was yellow and black.
In addition to the yellow highlights, another point that may anger Spurs supporters is the prominence of the Puma logo. Having it on the right side of the shirt is fine, but it’s also prominently displayed on both shoulders which seems quite excessive.
I can appreciate Puma trying to mix up the design of the home shirt to add some excitement but, in my opinion, they’ve gone too far. Instead of designing a shirt that is classy and traditional, they’ve crossed the line and produced a shirt that looks gimmicky.
