New Stoke City Away Kit Released Early After Major Coq Up

  Stoke City have this evening released our new away kit which will be worn for the 2009/10 season via the club’s official website, the official release coming two weeks earlier than planned, after an administrative error meant pictures of the kit were posted on the website accidentally earlier today, in a cock up of epic proportions. After a photo of this season’s yellow change kit was leaked onto the internet a year ago, this is the second consecutive season that the away kit launch has been brought forward in similar circumstances.

Stoke forward Ricardo Fuller models the new shirt, and the image that was laughably accidentally posted on the official website earlier today

  The shirt, shorts and socks are all in black, a colour popular with Stoke fans after it was used in 2005/06, and are complimented by trims in the Potters’ historic red and white colours. The shirt also features a large, traditional collar, and presumably a whole host of features to help the players’ skin “breathe” properly. The early release also clears up the issue of who will manufacture Stoke kits next season, with French brand Le Coq Sportif maintaining their position, despite rumours that the club were looking to replace them

  I for one, am delighted with the new kit. The black and red colouring is far more distinguished and stylish than the yellow and blue of this season’s away kit, which some say is cursed, while I’m particularly pleased about the proper, open collar, which in my opinion is aesthetically more pleasing than the tighter, closed variety favoured on most modern football shirts, and makes the shirt that bit more wearable for the fan. The black colour is also extremely imposing, which fits very nicely with the reputation as a team of blood-lust harbouring colossuses we’ve gained over the course of this season in the Premier League.

Few would care to mess with Abdoule Faye in his new, all black attire

  The new kit will be worn for the first time for the away game at Arsenal, the final game of this season, two weeks tomorrow, and with Stoke looking all but certain to stay up this season, it should be worn for the majority of our Premier League away trips next term.
