Do You Like Newcastle’s New Home Strip?


Newcastle United wore their new strip for the very first time last night, and there’s a lot more white in the shirt than the previous  strip.

Newcastle starting eleven in new strip before last night’s game

We’re not sure we like it all that much, and the Virgin Money insignia looks a little cheap to us, but maybe not.

Here’s a close-up of the new strip we had published last month

Please tell us whether you like the new strip or not.

By the way do you notice how tall Sammy Ameobi is these days – he’s even taller now than Mike Williamson – it’s those McDonald hamburgers for sure. 😀

    It’s not one of my favs, but I think we need to try something different now and again and the Juve-esque design is at least refreshing.

    The virgin money sign could have been designed in more fluidly, looks like it;s just been stuck on.

    Too many white for me… after all we are “black and white” not “white and black”.

    Looks from the voting as though it’s “Marmite” – lots like it, lots don’t.
    BTW – last item:
    Pardew Out!
    Mancini Out! (Citeh lost 1-0 last night too)

    NO – for me its better with black as the more dominant colour rather than white we also seem to have better seasons with more black in the stip than white or it just mite be a coincidence.

    I’ve slept on it and I’ve come to the conclusion that certain relegation looms. We didn’t have anyone to put the ball in the net. Michael Owen is on a free transfer. Bring him back, all is forgiven. Any yes………pards out!

    At last the action starts. I read the blog every day but could not be arsed to post as the transfer speculation bores me stupid. Still had a chuckle at some of the comments Ibiza/JFA and the like, comedy gold at times!
    We looked like giants against dwarfs from that action.
    On the strip i liked the blue asics one so what do i know 🙂 ohh aye and that silver one from the 80’s haha

    I personally like it, don’t understand the pointed lines that stick out but very Juventusesque & I’m not too fussed about the black to white ratio but get why people wouldn’t like it. I’ll be getting myself a replica of this but still wondering who’s name to get on the back?!?

    I think the strip looks great.

    I totally disagree that it should be more Black than White.

    If it was up to me we would play in White Shorts and Socks.

    The more Black than White success rate is b~ll~cks also. Just because last seasons was more Black then White?
    The 95/96 strip looks more white than black to me.

    I can see what you are getting at but the sponsor’s name has to stand out to be seen on a black and white background it will always look out of synch.

    Single colour strips are easier to stand out on just look around the league and you will see what I mean.

    Stk,
    Last I saw of him he was getting upset at the anti English sentiment during the Euro’s as was I,its a shame he’s stopped posting as he offered some very funny and level headed opinions nothing like the rubbish I spout,I would like to start a campaign to bring back Tsunki.

    The first photo of the lads in the strip shows a slight difference to that of the close up shot, the first photo shows the “Money” of the sponsor in gold but the close up it is in red. I think looks better in gold and yes, I am a pedant!!

    I remember Indian magpie being one of the most anti English posting at that time and even brought the cricket into it wanting Australia to hammer us in the one days.

    I wonder how he is feeling now that England white washed the Ausies 4-0 with one game abandoned.

    It’s gotta be better than the one from a few (many?) years ago when the stripes were so thin we got called the “Mint Humbugs”!
