    Just a coincidence that it coincides with the forming of the women's team ?

    We can win the treble next season and I'm still not buying that. I really cant remember a worse home kit.

    Yes, because Adidas are fully aware that pink isn't just a colour for women.

    I'm not sure Adidas have the full say on the colour of our kits to be honest.

    I just don't see any other reason to have an away kit that clashes with everything the home kit clashes with.

    Then United don't. The reason is, we decided to have a pink kit. Nothing to do with the women's team, because guess what? Pink is not just a girls colour. It's based on Sport Pink from the MEN.

    The sculptor who designed that bust of Ronaldo's head must have had input in this

    I don't want to get in to an argument over a colour to be honest, i was just wondering if anyone else thought it was a bit coincidental to have a pink shirt the year we finally get a women's team.

    I'm made up we are getting a pink away shirt as my daughter has got to the age now that she won't wear a "boys colour united shirt" (that's the words of my 4year old daughter by the way) but she likes the pink one.

    There's no argument to be had. It's coincidental. I believe the pink will be light enough it won't clash with teams that wear red. Though, you never know.

    Only thing wrong with that mockup is I wish the crest was full colour, it would pop more and look great.

    Hideous!

    It would be nice without the black stripes at the bottom.

    That home kit is brutal.

    They’ve missed the boat with the pink kit too. Should’ve released it at the start of summer.

    Honestly it's the worst home kit I can remember us having since kits really became a thing. Makes the Nike 'Black V' shirt look decent.

    I mean, it's just a football kit, so I'm not gonna get all bent out of shape about it, but I think about the fools who designed this thing, and how much more money than me they're surely getting paid in a year and this is the best they can come up with?

    I'd hate to see all of the mock-ups that didn't make the cut.

    Home kit looks ok to me. Definitely better than the gingham kit and will surely look better on the players when the season starts. I'm more worried about the rumoured pink kit...

    I'm not saying it'll be radically different, just that it's not a "leak". It's a mock-up/illustration.

    I love it, make a poll for youth and old generation. Then we can see the tastes of each generation.

    Everytime a new kit comes out, caf hates it.

    Every year I think to myself how cool our kit looks in the off games when we pair it with black pants. For the first ever a kit is designed to go specifically with black pants, it is horrible and would somehow go better with white pants. How do you feck up this badly.

    The kit looks like it was designed on Microsoft Word in Windows '95 by the Work Experience kid.

    The black pants are just ridiculous. The blue kit has black pants and the pink one will as well presumably? What happens when we face a team that will also have black pants in their home kit? Or will the pink kit have pink pants and we'll pair off a red and black kit with pink pants?

    It doesn't look THAT bad.

    Christ, the way some of you lot have been acting you'd be forgiven for thinking the red on the kit came from period blood...

    It's not a nice kit, but it isn't terrible.
    Needs black socks.
    I don't mind the idea of the bottom of the T-Shirt being a red fading into black, it just needed to be a lot less, without the stripes, just a subtle fade.

    Like the black 3 stripes, needed a black Adidas logo to fit though.
    I also don't mind black shorts

    The universe is unfair. Some random fan on the internet can put together a kit that fans unanimously agree is quality, yet some “creative genius” getting paid a really good salary, puts out garbage that most people hate. I just don’t get that they don’t understand that these are made for football fans not fashionistas.

    The more i look into it the more I like it. I'm all into contemporary designs than retro.

    From far it looked like a gradient red fading into black, which is class. I'm sure they going to pair it with white shorts too in certain games, maybe home CL.

    What made this kit so special is no obese adult going to wear this one with his name on the back, which is a nice touch.

    How long is the adidas contract for? The majority of their kits have been poor.
