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.
