Newcastle United Away Shirt for 2011-12 Season: Photo

newcastle jersey 2012 away Newcastle United Away Shirt for 2011 12 Season: Photo

Newcastle United’s away goalkeeper shirt for the 2011-12 Premier League season is definitely going to raise some eyebrows.

The above leaked photo features a Newcastle away goalkeeper shirt which is cream and white in color with a swash of black and white at the top of the shirt. Designed and manufactured by Puma, the new away shirt is very unique. It reminds me more of a Tottenham Hotspur away shirt than a Newcastle United kit, but it’s probably one that may look better in person than on a website.

I definitely give Newcastle and Puma credit for designing a shirt that stands out from the crowd and is different than anything else in the Premier League. Personally I like it. The shirt is not going to strike fear into the opposition, but it looks original enough (similar to some of the best Le Coq Sportif designs) to wear casually.

  2. Graeme says:

  3. Gaz says:

    Definatley the keeper top, seen it in the club store

  4. NI Toon says:

    This is the Goalkeeper top, it has been released with the new home top.
    There are pictures of Steve Harper wearing it!!

  5. Toon Blog says:

    YES, this is the keepers home shirt for next season.

  6. Sned says:

    FAIL! That’s the new goalkeeper top as already modelled by Steve Harper.

  7. Garry says:

    Then maybe we should adopt it as the away shirt – a lot better than teh yellow s***e we have at present.

    • seanp says:

      We don’t have the yellow shirt anymore – that was last season. this year they have been blue or white!!

  8. Sean G says:

    The away shirt for next season is rumored to be Orange , something like the Holland top

    I am one of the 3 people that thought the orange/pastel kit from a couple of seasons ago actually worked. This could have as well, as an away shirt. Decent kepper top.

    I like this top. For a Goalkeeper jersey this looks quite alright. It is different to the norm and a welcome change it is. I am eager to see the Orange Away Strip which is being mooted. If you simply change the Home Strips white stripes with Orange it looks miles better already. It should be interesting and definitely different to what we are accustomed to.

  11. Dakota says:

    I like this top too. I think it looks classy, it is different than most. I like the black and white stripe across the top clashing with the brownish creamy and white stripes running the opposite direction.

  12. Dan says:

    Shame the home kit is so terrible. I would have forgiven it to an extent if the Sleeves were black, it would have had an imposing look, but as it is it just looks like a waistcoat on an Arsenal shirt.

    Tottenham home kit right?

    ohhh….my bad.


  14. jim says:

    The new home top isnt the best-i think puma could do worse than look at the retro strips on the official website- i liked the yellow stripey one-we used to wear a yellow away one in the alan shoulder days-lol-and royal blue one-with the circular magpie in the middle-my favourite though and always will be is the 1996 asprilla, ferdinand, ginola, shearer strip with the brown ale bottle on the front-they could do a lot worse than the white away one around then too, and our current white and blue away ones-but hope they dont make an orange one! ewwwgh! ide like to see a very old fashioned simple black n white striped one make a comeback-plain, with the badges and puma logo somewhere normal lol-and a v neck-but who am i? gok effin wan?

  15. Stephen says:

    The change kit better be good, love this kit dunno why your making it out to be something people wouldn’t like, all down to opinion obv.

  16. Samuel says:

    gotta say i like the home kit its an attempt at something a bit diff nd i wasnt certain at first but its grown on me i like the gold puma on the shoulder and the 1892 on the back i too heard that theres gonna be one orange away kit and also a green one be interesting to see tho

  17. ftm says:

    Gotta love the black cats on the keepers sleeves! Hahaha FTM
