Newcastle’s New Home Strip Put On Puma Site

This photo was put on the Puma site on Wednesday night – and then quickly taken down – so this could even be our new home strip for next season – thanks to reader Tom O’Neill for the information.

    Having his non existent comments put under moderation is far too good for Ashley.

    The cost of our 1st team squad is less than Bale’s price tag

    hideous…bordering disgraceful

    take a leaf out of Celtic’s book and design something iconic.

    Imagine our away strip being black on gray?

    I might get the jersey and put a patch over the wonga. I’d love if you could get the jersey without sponsors, like Celtic do.

    It would look great if the logo was black….
    This is just selfish wonga, you made the kit look like crap.
    Could care less about the wonga interest rates, make that logo black!!!

    Twas thinking that myself!


    I can see Mbiwa at LB as he showed towards end of season he was quality there and that could mean pushing Santon forward, but it means Taylor will be playing and i don’t think he should be 1st choice. So we’d have to bring in another CD.
    I reckon Mbiwa will grow alongside Colo once they get some premiership games under their belts together. He could be Captain after Colo if we can keep him that is!
    What i saw of him could tell he was totally dedicated and proper professional. He must have trained through his holidays cos Pardew said he was the fittest at start of preseason and has played most games so far.

    Bale is off to Madrid 100%. How can you say no to a players wishes when Madrid come calling with effectively 100 million readies when he cost you relatively so little. Bale is the best thing that ever happened to Spurs and sad as it may be for their fans they have to let him go. He is a truly superb player and the Bernabeu is the right stage for him.

    I think mbiwa will really prove himself this season as colo passes the reins of the defense to him, i know he is colos replacement but i think we need another cb close to his ability and potential so taylor isnt forst choice

    I don’t think the blue stripe has to do anything with Wonga, hasn’t it been designed by Puma after all??

    I like the thin blue stripe I think it adds a bit of freshness to the kit,
    IF this indeed is the new kit I’m not particularly liking the new fitting, the older tighter fitting though was has a better feeling to it. Not sure how to describe but more aggressive could be one way.

    The little black patch under the v-neck isn’t that impressive either.

    On the signings front, don’t wanna fuel it any more that it is. Lets hope for the best

    When did we merge with Sheffield Wednesday then? Gopping top, I won’t be buying it, regardless of the sponsors logo being there or not.

    I also like the thin blue stripes, i think that black patch in the v neck may be the models undershirt or at least i hope it is. I still would like that logo to match the black and white

    Apparently Southampton have lost out on 11 million readies in sell on for him cos they took some cash off spurs when they nearly went under, to scrap the clause. 11 million is a lot of readies, but i suppose they’ve earned more than that now in Premiership and staving off administration. They produce some fcukin talent down there don’t they! Must have a great youth academy. Wallcott, Ox-Chamberlin, Bale, suppose you could say Shearer as well and Phillips. Fcuk, the list goes on. Got a decent stadium and they probably don’t have to be a selling club anymore if they stay up, which they probably will under that new bloke.

    Uncertain Toon,
    I haven’t been able to post today due to a couple of posters complaining about me, the abuse I have recieved over the years posting on here and I have never once had to or felt the need the need to report any body for it, the irony is that day after day we see viv and plan a post at will yet I who have campaigned against racism and offensive comments find my self shut off the blog.

    Wonga’s corporate colours appear to be blue (name and frame of Wonga logo) and white.

    Newcastle United’s colours are black and white and that fact surely subtly separates us from Wonga. Those blue stripes are useful.

    I’m not a new poster no and we must seem to miss each other as i don’t recognize your name either sorry

    Uncertain Toon
    I agree, Yanga was terrific at left back and didn’t play to well at centre back. With the reputation he has, i’m sure he will come good and i hope that happens this season!

    And to everyone else, isn’t the wonga logo blue? Companies don’t change their logo just for the sake of a shirt.

    Yes, that is a bit of a shame for Southampton isn’t it, and yeah they seem an entirely decent and fine club, although I’m not sure how much credit they or Spurs can take for Bale, who at this stage seems the complete package on and off the pitch. I’d put by far the lions share down to genetics and parenting, but yes his development does at least reflect very well on Southampton, who also made a few bob overall as well.

    Pretty ugly-looking. Dunno why they’ve left a white space either side of the logo where stripes should be either. Just a really shoddy job, the kind of workmanship you’d expect from a Mike Ashley-endorsed sweatshop design done off the cuff…

    Oh wait! Nevermind. In all seriousness, had it even been executed properly I still would never have bought it due to the sponsor being Wonga, but at least I won’t feel guilty now that Puma have done what they’re best at, which is making sh*te shirts on the cheap.

    ah well thats interesting then. They must have thought the blue would work because we’ve had blue in our kits before.I’m not too pleased with the kit, much prefer last years one!

    As for the logo being blue, it’s not like it really clashes as much as the blue would on that new Hearts kit. I doubt Wonga would’ve allowed it to be changed colour though – I mean the difference between this shirt and all the others they’ve sponsored in the past few years is this is their biggest club to date, their most ambitious deal with the most money being traded. You would imagine it to be pretty vital to them that they get the exact conditions they wanted.

    I know some of you boys like to see what the new strips are like. My interest would be basic -along the lines of it looks alright or it doesn’t.
    I may not be modern in discussing the finer points of a new strip but some of you boys, I have to say, when discussing the qualities of the new strip, sound like ladies discussing underwear in the knicker shop.

    I commented on their acadmy few months back. They have a knack of finding top young talents and developing them. Wish we had that, then we wouldn’t have all these transfer frustrations.

    The fantastic simple black and white striped shirt and wonderfully named stadium have always carried a level of dignity the club has never managed to live up to. The current ownership act as if neither asset has much currency at all. They just chip away at it all and remodel in their own image. It actually deeply depresses me. Even so, still believe the club will ultimately triumph over this ownership.

    AmeriToon – you make a fair point -nothing much else to talk about -better that than the hotheads picking fights with each other.

    Watched a programme about Swansea City on BBC1 earlier on. Good programme – I did not realise that the Swans fans bought the club -when they nearly got kicked out the league a few years ago. The supporters launched a campaign and bought the club. They gradually got stronger -but they knew they could not compete financially with the bigger clubs -so their plan was to use the passing game that they still use -that is their football philosophy – and all started by Roberto Martinez, continued by Rogers and now Laudrup. I can only see them getting stronger and fancy the Bony/Michu partnership to run some defences ragged this season. In some respects I wished we were like them.

    Knowing our business model, we will wait until the final conceivable date to release this strip for sale so we avoid gaining maximun sales revenue.

    It’s the Toon way.

    Mister T,

    Aye it was a good programme. Shame about the striker Thomas having to retire early. Bet he’ll never buy a pint in Swansea again. They so easily could have been gone on and disappeared!
    Did you notice Sinclair scoring and where he was on pitch, exactly what we’re missing. Hope the 3 stoogies where watching that and switch the feck on!

    Replace the blue with black, get rid of that bizarre stitched in polo neck and of course the shameful Wonga insignia and you`ve got yourself a Toon top.
