It was in late April that Newcastle’s alleged new away strip for next season was leaked by footyheadlines.com for the first time to the Internet and it looked terrific.
It’s very similar to an away strip used by Kevin Keegan’s Entertainers in the 1990s and will bring back memories of those great times – when we won a lot of games.
Here’s a shot in the Chronicle today of Les Ferdinand and David Ginola from the 1990s – when Adidas was the shirt sponsor – and it seems like Ginola has just scored.
And here’s a strip that recently put out by GallowgateShots on their Twitter account which looks exactly the same as the one leaked in late April – yes – it could be happening.
Holy shit … it’s happening isn’t it ? pic.twitter.com/PLxTp5cyRq

So it does look like this will be the new away strip.
Newcastle are expected to reveal the new strips early next month and also announce the new shirt-sleeve sponsors.
And we hope we can get a good deal from some company to increase our commercial revenues on the sleeves of the new shirts.
But it’s a lovely looking away strip with links to an exciting past.
Maybe that means we’ll have an exciting future ahead too under Mr. Rafa Benitez?
Hope so – but it’s got to come quickly for some of us old-timers!
