Newcastle United, the club that is quickly becoming a laughing stock in the Premier League, sunk a little deeper today after the club and Puma unveiled United’s away shirt for the 2014/15 season. United’s new away kit perfectly sums up the mood on Tyneside — Even though Puma says it’s silver, the United away kit is a depressingly gray jersey.
According to Puma, Newcastle’s 2014/15 PUMA away kit has been inspired by the away shirts worn by some of the city’s most famous sons, with Peter Beardsley, Chris Waddle and Paul Gascoigne all sporting a similarly eye-catching style in the mid 1980’s.
The new kit is all silver with black trim on the shirt, shorts and socks. ‘Newcastle United Football Club 1892’ wording is featured throughout the kit as a pinstripe detail, with additional club accents positioned on the upper back neck, waist-band of the shorts and socks.
The new away kit will be worn by the first team in the club’s final league game against Liverpool on Sunday May 11 and throughout the 2014/15 campaign.
