My gut feeling is that I reckon that shirt is a fake. The badge is the give away. Too small and not aligned with the umbro emblem. I'd suggest it doesn't look stylish enough for the new owners. Well, at least I hope it's a fake! Top rumour, red and black sash on white coming back for the away kit!

that's not it. It is rumoured that Gary Cook confirmed at a fan event to look at this pic. http://www.sport.co.uk/public/manchester%20city%20kits.jpg

Horrible design, i havent been impressed with a home strip since kappa laser blue and the old umbro kits before then. I hate this new shirt. When was the last time umbro did a nice kit???? Englands new strip is terrilbe. Umbro is ownded by nike, like adidas owns reebok. I reckon the rags asked nike for exclusivity. So we got umbro instead :(I saw puma designs online the other day and they were alot better.

Design is a bit so-so, but hey, if the rags have a go at us for allegedly having "united" on our shirt, just ask them what happened to AIG...

i hope and prey that the link city sl1cker sent is the real thing. looks like the manufacturers have finally gone retro which i've hoped they would for a while. Rather than all these daft lines and designs that we seem to always entertain on our kits
