    Yes it would but this shirt seems to be predominantly red with black being the bit at the bottom - going to look thin down below and fatter the more you go upwards

    The thing that irks me the most is that the Adidas logo is white rather than black:nono: these images are showing the replica kit so I imagine the players shirts will blend with the shorts. The shirt would have looked great all red with black Adidas stripes.

    It's hideous I reckon. I don't see what would be so wrong with a red shirt, no gimmicks or patterns, just United red.

    Because it would be harder to justify paying hundreds of pounds for a plain red t-shirt?

    They're about 60 quid, plus you're mistaken if you think people won't pay a hell of a lot of money for simple shirts.

    I like the black around the collar and the black stripes on the arm

    If the rest of the shirt was plain red it would be Perfect.

    I think the home shirt is beautiful at the top, am still unsure about the bottom part.

    It kind of reminds me of my photocopier at work. It comes out fine to start with but the machine leaves black smudges on the way out.

    Everything above the stripes is good, I like the simplicity of the v neck and the sleeves. It looks a nice shade of red too. Overall I'm quite happy with it. The stripes seem to help take your eye away from the Chevrolet logo too. I think this is a shirt that will grow on people.

    It looks funny, because of the black at the base of the tshirt blending with shorts it makes it look as if the shirt is tucked in and the shorts waistband are being worn around the belly button. Simon cowell shorts.

    I wonder what the alternate shorts/socks will be. Surely not red shorts?

    When we were with Nike, I wanted Adidas.

    Now we're with Adidas, I want Nike.

    I will never be happy! :lol:

    In all seriousness though, the likes of Bayern, Madrid and Juve typically get lovely kits from Adidas, whereas ours just feel a bit...meh.

    It's hard to focus the blame on Adidas when it's more likely the decisions are being made from people within the club to go with a specific design.

    Anyway, at the end of the day it's only a bloody kit, so I won't lose sleep over it. Let's start by improving our football first.

    Who the feck approved this design and who on earth thought this was a good idea? Genuinely one of the worst idea for a design on a kit. The black doesnt even fade normally, and just makes it look like the players have really small torsos and really long legs.

    At least we have the navy kit this season... the home and a supposed pink kit though. Awful.

    I think the case for the defence is that I don't think it looks that bad when worn in full kit. However, this is pointless because as we all know...once a person is other the age of 13 it is unacceptable for them to wear full kit in ANY circumstances unless they are a professional footballer or in an academy.

    I like it, it's very nice if a bit unconventional. Reminds me a lot of nineties J-League kits.

    If that's the final product, then the designers need to re-evaluate their career choices. That shirt ain't gonna sell.

    Would be nice if the socks were all black, or even white. Looks pish with half red socks.

    Edit: you know what’d look half decent? Fading into white instead of red on the socks. Looks fecking shite with red socks

    Of course it is. It always does. They know they can get away with anything, and it'll sell regardless. This years will be no different.

    Not the most succesful attempts at kits that is. Looks weird.

    I spent too much time looking at that model's crotch to see where the shirt ends and the shorts begin.

    Pretty much, yeah. It's influenced by the Sport Pink section that used to be in the MEN. So would be expecting a light pink.
