Yeah, well done. Sell out tradition. If AC Milan did that I'd be livid.

What kind of crap is that? Man Utd change their kit to yellow and the new branding reads, "Be the Red"

:lol:

But would it actually hurt sales if they didn't change their kit?

Looks like they've gotten the colour wrong on an old Blackburn shirt.

Apparently black makes you look thinner and white makes you look fatter.

You will be looking thin in one side and utterly obese on the other. Not the best thing for Americans to wear is it?

The shirt is probably the most modern I've seen. I reckon we'll see a few go down that route. Especially the kind of coral/neon stripe.

They'll need a new logo as their recent changed one is still a bit stripe themed.

Such desperate acts from Italian and Spanish clubs.

Odd that Ronaldo isn't in that pic
It isn't, they're trying to improve their image in a country where he has a case open against him and were the media would jump at Juve for showing him in the ad. Even if he ends up being 101% innocent it would be detrimental right now.

I think they ment when you put a bunch of blokes in that kit next to each other they will look like one old Juve kit. I don't know...

Loved 90s Juve when I was a little kid and Serie A was in its pomp. Between their dominance in Italy these days, Agnelli leading the push for a super league / revamped CL and cynical moves like changing the badge and strip for dubious reasons they've become one of my most disliked now

In the US they find it odd that it's normal to have sponsors on Jerseys.

That looks fecking horrific. Guarantee it’ll be back to stripes a season or two after.

Not a fan. First the badge, now the iconic strips. What’s going on at Juve?
What's going on is that they're highly ambitious and constantly trying to move the club forward.

We as 'romantics' may dislike all these changes, but I'm sure they've researched it well.

I like halved shirts - Blackburn, Genoa etc. and I don't think that's too bad as a design.

But there's no way Juventus should be doing that, it's just not them.

What do Juve fans think?

They copied Notts County anyway.

You'll seldom find him on any images that's in the media. Even the FIFA 19 screen savers he's been removed due to that open case. Must be hurting his commercial value.

Will be a hot seller for children and neutral/hipsters. Maybe not die hard Juve fans, but it is modern and trendy, so the fashionistas will be all over it
