New shirt - fake or fiction?

EPL Talk provided a link to what was revealed as a sneak preview of our new shirt for the 2008/09 season (below), but judging by the comments section on the post, there is much debate as to whether the shirt is real or fake.


I didn't think we were actually due for a new kit this season and there hasn't (that I'm aware of) been any publicity regarding a new shirt and although Football Shirts reveal the date for it, I'm sure there would have been some build up from the club.

If anyone does know whether the story is correct or not, feel free to leave a comment.

vote it up!

i think its rubbish we are supposed to have a home shirt for two seasons plus its rubbish the one we have now is much better, in the picture it looks like the material is thicker than the current shirt too or is that just me.why didnt the the post saying they have been ordered for girls u13 leave real name?

stitching around the club crest doesn't look right. with the lack of publicity i think it's fake and if i can remember rightly, when they change makers it's usually the away kit that changes after the first season.

last years shirt is being sold off for £15 in the club shop, so make your own mind up.

Cant stand the pinstripe shirts so i hope it is changing, but dont u think that Le Coq will be history when their contract is up...Is there an Asian kit manufacturer that Frankie will want to promote with say Singha Beer as a sponsor, just a thought!...CTID

looks like shit.

Looks like a cheap fake to me (I agree with the comment about the poor crest stitching - dead giveaway) and besides, the JJB website claims we'll be releasing a shirt made by Canterbury (so not LCS) on the 19th July. Still doesn't explain why the Club has not publicising a release.

Here's the link to JJB's site, scroll down to the list of "upcoming football kit releases".

If you brighten the picture and increase the contrast you can clearly see that the sponsor logo is pasted on. Clearly a fake (and a bad one too..)

Are we still sponsored by Thomas cook

Nuff Said

For starters the shirt is a female shirt, see how the shirt widens as it drops, secondly Kits are never everreleased until the Club says so so in this case if this is the true female kit then the guy holding it & the whoever took the picture can be in trouble for a breach of contract privacy policy.

These things are always hush hush until the Club speaks out.

I've heard the reason they are changing both kits is that the away shirt will have Sangha beer on it

Fake! If it is genuine, I would not be impressed that City have ripped off the fans, by introducing another 3 new kits. I thought the whole reason for the changes was because we had a new sponsor in Singha Beer.

It's Fake, we will switch to Nike if Ron signs!!

Go to JJB's website and look at the release dates (19th July - Home & 16th August - Away) also the sponsor is still Le Coq Sportif, so this shirt is probably the new one!

been into the club shop today and they said there will be an anouncement re the new home shirt this Friday. There will be a new away shirt mid-end august.

I also think that this shirt is a fake because... i agree with the person that said the stiching is wrong... and too me it looks like a replica of the shirt that we wore at the munich manchester derby however it has had the sponsor printed on to make it look real or am i wrong ?? i also thought we would have had a new deal with nike because of the arrival of the new director garry cooke ??

GA GA said...

HOME KIT IS RELEASED ON 19th OF JULY AWAY KIT IS RELEASED ON 16th OF AUGUST IT WILL BE MADE BY LE COQ SPORTIF WE ONLY SIGNED A FOUR YEAR DEAL WITH THEM AT THE BEGINNING OF LAST SEASON THE SPONSOR MAY BE THOMAS COOK NOT SURE AS THE DEAL WITH THEM RUNS UNTIL 2008 BUT NOT SURE IF IT COUNTS FOR 2008/2009 SEASON

Is it ever possible to buy a sponsorship deal out half way through? Whoever signed that deal should be shot, it's not much money, it's another 3 years, and it's rubbish. Did we not learn from how bad the kits were back in 2000?

GOAT = HEROE said...

ITS NOT MUCH MONEY 10 MILLION POUND LE COQ PAID US IT WAS RECORD DEAL THE KITS ARE QUITE SMART TOO PLUS NOT ONLY DO WE GET 10 MILLION BUT THEY PROVIDE THE WHOLE CLUB WITH THERE KIT, THAT INCLUDES TRAINING GEAR, MATCHDAY KITS AND SO ON FOR ALL AGES YOU SHOULD GET BACK UNDER YOUR ROCK YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT ANOTHER BANDWAGON BLUE OBVIOUSLY.HOPE WE SIGN MILITO HES CLASS

Ive heard its going to be Singha Beer and NIKE that kit looks fake to me!!

Oh how the mighty bloggers have fallen. This is the real kit as we can now see on the MCFC website. It's quite funny how everyone tried to claim it is a fake when we were seeing the new kit all along!!!

I'm loving the new away kit by the way, with the black and red stripes, finally we can have an away kit we can win in (as we didn't actually win in the purple one!)

Now for some transfers!!!

WELL IT IS CLOSE TO THE NEW KITBUT NOT QUITE THE SAME THIS PICTURE IS EITHER A FAKE OF THE NEW KIT OR A PROTOTYPE I PREFER CURRENT HOMESHIRT THE NEW AWAY I THINK IS A BIT DODGY GOOD TO HAVE THE RED AND BLACK BUT STYLE IS NOT GOOD BADGE SHOULD BE IN MIDDLE PLUS ON THE RED STRIPES LOOKS LIKE THERES A BUBBLE EFFECT THE LAST TIME LE COQ MADE OUR KITS THEY MADE A BETTER BLACK AND RED ONE
