As the new season beckons the usual new kit launch has occured, Saints will be playing in Red and White next season, only not as we expected.
Has Nicola Cortese taken the chant 'Red Army' too literally?
Thanks to the wonders of the internet some surprisingly accurate kit mock ups have been circulating for the past month or so, but it was a surprise to most to see that not only will our team be walking out in not just a predominantly red shirt next year but also an entirely red kit. The away kit will be the polar opposite in all white with red pinstripe which while complimenting the idea of Saints being Red and White also raises questions along the lines of 'What are we wearing away to Stoke and Sunderland?' The launch of a third kit therefore cannot be ruled out.
Reaction on the forum to this has been extremely mixed to say the least. Ahead of Saints return to the Premier League spotlight is this really a kit that reflects the club? Either way, it seems we are stuck with it for at least a season.
