Yes, my fellow Blues fans, the day is here – the new Chelsea kit for the next two years was revealed!! Now, do you recognize anything familiar? I’m glad Adidas didn’t go hog-wild like they did with the fugly yellow away kit. This has a lovely white collar (I kind of love the collars, like on England’s kit for 05/06), same familiar three-striped shoulder, and now, a throwback with the gold on the sleeves. Those of you who were Chelsea fans BEFORE they won anything will remember the old kits with gold and blue by Umbro (Umbro, how I hate you sometimes, but you made my England kit, so I’ll love you for now). Oh, and that picture has a very young Jose Mourinho in it. Yay Special One!! How I miss you 😦
So, do I like the new kit? Eh, sure, it’s not really different at all.
I think they’re still going to use the fugly yellow away kit for now until they release a new one in 2009. On a separate note, have you SEEN the keeper’s kit? (It’s to the right, if you didn’t realise.) Are we Barca all of a sudden? What’s with the neon orange? C’mon, Chelsea, have some class. I know Petr has to be in a different colour, but SERIOUSLY. Orange?!
Eh, go preorder the new kit here. Chelsea is the only team you ever really need to support.
