Everton’s New Away Kit - Super Retro
I think we all knew that Everton’s pink away kit was going to be short lived and thank god for that.
Here is a look at their new away kit. Yeah, now we’re talking!
But don’t be afraid to rock these sick retro kits fellas. Here is to hoping these actually make a showing on the pitch.
Manchester United, last year’s Premiership Champions, strikes the first sponsorship deal for a training-kit. For the next four years, DHL will pay £10m ($16.5m) a year for their name plastered on ManU’s training sick kit by Nike.
Week 2 of EPL - Liverpool’s massive win against Arsenal earns them a Sick Kit post - 81-84 Away Kit by Umbro.
Last month we posted one of our favorite sick kits, Queens Park Rangers’ 85-86 kit by Adidas. Now, QPR has unveiled their 11-12 kit by Lotto. It’s brilliant to see them return to a classic design. Now all the West London club has to do is bounce back from a tough 4-0 loss to Bolton.
This is SICK! We joined, so should you.
Presenting The Tumblr Football Club Fantasy Premier League, hosted by A Football Report and the football community on Tumblr!
Last year, the AFR Fantasy Premier League had over 650 participants. This year, we’re hoping to shake things up a bit and focus on getting the football community (from our friends at The World’s Game and The Beautiful Game Blog to all the personal blogs) on Tumblr involved to create something special.
We took care of the winnings to be had thanks to the awesomeness of SoccerPro (winner gets soccer jersey of their choice, 2nd/3rd place get a jacket or an official ball, 4th and 5th place get a $20 Gift Card to SoccerPro.com) mixed with the genius of Live Breathe Football (sign up by kickoff this weekend to be one of five winners of a brilliant LBF shirt).
The rest is up to you. Just click here, enter the league code (81352-135043), and then SPREAD THE WORD! Let’s make this massive!
