New Third Change Kit For Newcastle United

Newcastle United’s new third change kit for the 2007/2008 season will go on sale next Wednesday, August 29.

Our new left-back from Villareal, Jose Enrique, is modeling the new white and light blue strip.

Take a look at it – we like it – but we suppose our idea of light blue and white stripes fell on deaf ears at the club 😀

Anyway we like the light blue color and we like this third change strip.


Jose Enrique – wondering where the right winger went

The strip will go on sale from 9am on August 29th – so fans will be able to wear it that night when Newcastle United play host to Barnsley in the Carling Cup Second Round encounter at St. James’ Park – a must-win game for the club.

Let’s know what you think of this new strip – we’ll issue more photographs as they become available.

Comments very welcome.

    Quite nice imo. Although the idea with a change kit based on our b&w stripes with only different colours was even better.

    dont like it either, but if they had to change the colours around , for example: where the blue is should be black and the black should be blue.
    Thats just my opinion ,what you guys think?

    I think it’s ridiculous NUFC bringing out a third kit as i thought it was supposed to be if we got into Europe. We very rarely wear the away strip as it which i have bought and i think it’s just a way to get more money out of the Fans. You just wait and see you will count on one hand the amount of times these shirts will be worn Bang goes another £45

    think it looks smashing — FAR nicer than the first away kit — but the motives for its release are transparent.

    i think its ok, but just another money making scheme from the club, why do we need three kits anyway? we not even in europe, the away kit will probably be used in about 6 games and this kit about 3 or 4.

    P.collins – excellent point – should only do that when we’re we are in Europe.

    …why is the barnsley game a “must-win”? i’d certainly prefer to lose it than any of our premiership games, or f.a. cup games.

    in fact it’s our most lose-able competitive fixture of the season.

    I think this kits one of the better one’s we have produced, dont know if i’d rush out right away and get it though. Think we need to stop worring about kits and look more into new signings to make st james the fortress it once was.

    try buying it from somewhere like sports direct , they normally sell the new kits for atound £33.99 and thus saving yourselves £12.
    Will look much better in short sleeves though (imo).

    almost like Ribery during his time in Marseille 🙂 it is ok a pretty nice but what for? only for a money nothing else but of course it is everyone choice to buy it or not but i like it more then the second one. I want us to be the first club with clear politic over change strips (colours and style like with the home one)

    It’s not too bad could have been worse e.g. last years burgandy/blue/yellow away kit!! This is miles better compared to that one, but i agree it does resemble Argentina’s kit. Short sleeve would look better and it does seem like a money trap for whoever wants it badly enough.

    Well, in terms of the design, I agree this second away is better look than the first away kit, and beside that, It has more white on it 🙂

    But…it will look fantastic if that light blue was dark-gray or even better, black!

    How about a nice pink with little white ruffs on the neck and sleeves, I think the lads would be happy to express their feminine side especially after some of those nasty rough tackles.

    sorry to disapoint you lads but the club site states the third kit will be exclusive to club stores and the online shop so no cheapuns in sports direct, also all of u who think the strip itself is horible i strongly disagree and think all of u need somethin sortin out in your heads, as for all the rest who say the new away kit is disgusting i think it is the noste gorgeous strip on the market and the best newcastle has ever had since i have been alive

    any problems with that lads??

    Personnaly I think a class of eight yr olds with a set of crayons could have come up with a better design than that. It’s a joke!

    Steve k – the barnsley game is a must win as allardyce is aiming to win the league cup this year as he believes it our best chance of a trophy. Obviously we want to win every game in the premiership and fa cup, but the league cup is the 3rd largest domestic trophy in england, and not a trophy to be ignored by a team like ours who has not won any for decades.

    Don’t tell me you wouldnt be happy to see us picking up that trophy at wembley later in the season.

    added to the fact that losing to a championship side would be a major blow to morale and not help the team to try to build a run of good results and keep up our unbeaten (albeit after only 2 games) record in competitive games this season.

    Club is reporting that this strip will be a ‘cup’ strip and will be worn against Barnsley next Wednesday.

    Does this mean it will be worn in all cup matches? If so I’d be pi$$ed off if we got to Wembley and won a trophy wearing this pile of sh1te, I want to see our famous black & white shirts parading a cup.

    (actually I just want us to win a trophy non stop but you know what I mean)

    to be honest, i think its a disgrace bringing out another strip, fair do’s when we are in europe and its going to be worn a canny few times. I think this is the first season i can remember where none of the strips have been good. I think they are all average to c**p!
    I think the maroon and blue hooped away strip should have made a comeback but ARSEnal beat us too it, the barstewards.
    Anyways, sod the strips, the most important thing is the team, i think we’re 1 creative midfielder away from being the bee knees!

    Ed – trouble is if we wore this shirt all the way to the final would/should we change it? Superstition etc.

    Don’t phuckin’ buy it then you miserable bastards!..I’d like to see what some of you lot wear on a day-to-day basis, just to get an angle on y’fashion sense,
    that would tell me if i could trust your judgement on such matters!..
    …On second thoughts, nah i wouldn’t!..
    …It’s a football strip for christs sake, grow up!..

    Surely, a third kit is a chance to do something a little different. I doubt the world’s gonna end or anything!?!..But anyway, if we win a cup, or anything for that matter, we can do it in cock-tail dresses for all i care!..
    …Howay the Lads!..
