Latest 2018-19 kit releases: Arsenal away, Leicester, Atletico, Lyon,

Quick Reads

As the 2018-19 season draws ever closer, clubs from the Premier League and around Europe are preparing by releasing their new kits.

It has become custom nowadays to begin every season with a new kit, be it with multiple changes or just the minor details, but there’s something about a new kit being revealed that just whets the apetite for the fun to begin again.

We’ve taken a look at some of the top clubs who have already revealed how they will look when they take to the field once more in August.

Arsenal

This is about as different as you could possibly expect from a shirt that has to remain predominantly red with white.

The red itself almost appears faded, the collar is like something we’ve never seen before, and they’ve added a strange pink ring onto the sleeve – where the ‘Visit Rwanda’ sponsor will sit.

Arsenal away

This is really nice, except it’s not yellow.

Chelsea

Taking its inspiration from the 80s and 90s, Chelsea’s new design sees their traditional blue feature flashes of colour across the front.

There are two unique points to note, as inside the shirt reads the line ‘blue is the colour’, the first line in the club’s anthem, and on the back of the collar is a small lion, as is on the badge.

Crystal Palace

Palace are entering into a new deal with Puma, which has seen them adopt a fat stripe with a fade from the bottom, while their away kit is white with a typically popular red and blue sash.

Everton

Everton’s new design is relatively straightforward, though the faux-collar is a bit unusual.

Huddersfield Town

First of all, props to Huddersfield for unveiling the kit on a new (kind of) signing. A great way to kill two birds with one stone.

We’re not convinced by the collar on the shirt, but that seems to be a theme with this season’s kits.

Leicester City

Now this is a collar we can get behind. In fact, the whole kit is great.

There’s not a massive amount you can do with a shirt that needs to remain almost entirely blue, yet somehow this is a real fresh look. We like.

Liverpool

‘This Means More’ is Liverpool’s tagline that came with the release of their *slightly* new home kit.

It features the same colour after their 2017-18 kit proved to be one of the most popular ever, sticking with a retro feel with the main alteration being the addition of a collar.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will wear the new strip for their final Premier League match of the season but will walk out in Kiev in this season’s strip for their Champions League final with Real Madrid.

Manchester City

Much disappointment was met with the release of City’s kit for the 2018-19 campaign and in truth it is a bit of a let-down.

The collar in particular has come under scrutiny, and rightly so. A poor effort.

Manchester United

The new third kit for the forthcoming season pays tribute to United’s debut European Cup win in its 50th anniversary season.

Supposedly navy blue – though some of the lighting does make it look more grey – the shirt is detailed and sharp, and also has an important message behind it.

It has been made from recycled ocean plastic, as the club works with Parley for the Oceans to help raise awareness for the issue.

West Ham

Featuring a very regal away kit, West Ham have released images modelling the kits featuring club legends such as Billy Bonds and Sir Trevor Brooking.

Atletico Madrid

Fans of lots of other teams who wear red and white stripes would go mad about this, but for Atleti it’s a beaut.

We can even just about get on board with the collar. It seems actual collars are out.

Barcelona

Following this season’s vertical fade design, Nike have opted for very thin stripes on their latest Barcelona offering.

Real Madrid

While everyone was busy speculating why Cristiano Ronaldo was the only player not to pose in the new Real Madrid kit, we were busy thinking how bloody good Toni Kroos in it.

Both the home and away kit are very Real Madrid. And very good.

Inter Milan

Inter, meanwhile, haven’t diverted from what works with another simple yet elegant design in their famous black and blue.

Juventus

Wearing a wider stripe, meanwhile, will be Juventus, whose Adidas kit is mildly spoiled by the stuck-on sponsor’s logo across the front.

Roma

You can always rely on Roma for a stellar kit, and Nike have pulled it off again, with their simple but perfect design.

Bayern Munich

Bayern’s new design is simple yet detailed, with the front of the shirt displaying a retro diamond pattern, and the shoulder stripes paying homage to the treble-winning side of 2012-13.

Borussia Dortmund

A fairly standard design, but typical of Dortmund’s image, the yellow and black shirt is simple but effective. The tag-line ‘The pulse of Dortmund’ says it all.

Lyon

Did someone say England ’82?

Whatever this was inspired by, we love it.

PSG

Is anyone else getting Barcelona?…

Celtic

An equally rubbish collar accompanies the new Celtic design, but their striking green and white hoops mean it’s still pleasing on the eye. Another good New Balance effort.
