After all of the hullabaloo about Tottenham Hotspur’s new home shirt for the 2011-12 Premier League season, a photograph of it has been leaked on the Internet. The hullabaloo was regarding what it would look like. Tottenham even launched a Facebook campaign asking supporters to guess the new kit. If we knew it was going to be so plain looking, Tottenham and their supporters could have saved everyone a ton of time.
Tottenham’s home shirt for the 2011-12 season is designed and manufactured by Puma (their last season before Under Armour takes over the reins next summer). It’s the type of shirt that I can imagine mothers and wives all across the globe saying, “you paid how much for that plain white shirt?”
Seriously, though, I respect Tottenham’s desire to return to their roots and to produce something simple but elegant. It looks like a shirt worthy of being worn by champions. Whether Spurs can make that happen or not is another story entirely.
