It’s a rather strange decision to us, but it seems that Newcastle will wear their lime green kit against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday afternoon, and it’s been custom for both sides to play in their traditional kits.
Danny Simpson in the lime green kit Newcastle will wear tomorrow
At the Stadium of Light Newcastle usually play in black and white stripes with white shorts, to better differentiate the players from the red and white strips of the Black Cats, who of course wear black shorts.
But the news is that Newcastle will do away with tradition tomorrow and wear their lime green kit.
To us that’s disappointing, because it’s been shown both sides can wear their traditional colors and there’s no clash, and that’s what the sides have done for many years.
Sky Sports announced the kit change for Newcastle, when injured and out for the season Ryan Taylor was the guest on the Fantasy Football Club show.
And it seems that Ryan Taylor has the same opinion as most fans when he had this to say about the kit change – it’s disappointing.
Key Lime Pie
We suppose we’ll wear white shorts with the lime green shirts, unless we have lime green shorts lined up for tomorrow – why do I think of that key lime pie we used to have in South Florida? 😀
Hey, we cannot remember ever beating Sunderland in a lime green kit, so there’s a first time for everything.
Let’s hope that first time is tomorrow!
Howay The Lads!!
