It’s a bit of a mystery to us why we are wearing our lime green shirts this afternoon, when usually at Sunderland we wear the black and white shirts with white shorts, and even white socks if necessary.
Ryan Taylor – with white shorts last season
But that’s not going to happen today, and the reason put out by the club has only confused things – this is the official tweet sent out by the club yesterday:
Just To Clarify: NUFC not able to wear black shorts and socks. Would not be allowed by PL.
But that’s why last season and in previous seasons we wore white shorts and and in some cases white socks to differentiate the players.
Last season we wore our white shorts but the usual black and white socks, as shown above with Ryan Taylor.
So the club, in putting out this explanation have just made things even more confusing, and it seems a silly decision to wear lime green shirts, and surely they wont be wearing the black shorts today, which is what Sunderland wear.
The real reason behind the change we have no idea – to sell more lime green shirts?
What do you think?
