Winning & Looking Good Doing It

Winning & Looking Good Doing It


Lando78 sent Vital Manchester City the following article.

If City really are the new Chelsea and of course the new evil of football, then thanks to Umbro kit designer David Blanch, we must be the Imperial Storm Troopers from Star Wars. As no EVIL has ever looked quite as good - or at least since that film Species anyway.

After seeing the 'Behind the kit' videos on the website it is blatantly obvious that the club has pulled off another master stroke. Of course nobody needed to see the video to understand that we have the greatest set of kits ever to grace the Premier League; each one as superb as the next.

Over a five part series of videos the painstakingly meticulous designer beams with pride as he takes us on a journey of manufacturing at its finest. David is obviously a huge football fan and understands the importance of the uniform and the role it plays in giving the players and fans alike an added dimension to their passion and performances. One gets the feeling that if it was up to him the British Army would be kitted out in Armani, after all if you are the best then why not look it too. His philosophy, if you look good then you feel good is something which seems to be proving itself on the field too, with only one loss all season.

He goes on to talk about the three kits and how each was made to a specific design for a specific purpose. The Sky Blue home kit is the kit that every Blue associates our club with. He talks of his wish for Manchester City Blue to become internationally recognizable and instantly connectible to The Citizens.

The away kit does what it was designed to do - intimidate the opposition. It's a lean mean marauding machine of a shirt, designed to exude confidence in its wearer during forays into enemy territory.

The third kit, possibly the most aesthetically pleasing, has already been championed by Premier League fans as the best looking kit in the whole league. Its South American Retro style stands out a mile from the crowd, while the sponsor's Etihad logo has been reduced in size and placed underneath the badge. It gives the players an almost regal look and rivals Real Madrid's home number for the most chic kit in Europe.

The badge itself is a work of art and you get the feeling that the players feel like they've gone from Audi TT's to Aston Martin's in one kit change. So why is the kit so important? It gives the players another reminder of the top class establishment they have signed up to play for. Another club success and indication that the Sky Blue Juggernaught is just revving its engine up. Not since that day at Wembley has the club motto Superbia in Proelia 'Pride in Battle' meant so much to this group of players.

Are you really that stupid Mix, or are you just pretending? Spurs, that's the white one with the yellow streaks, looks like someone urinated on a nice white jersey.

Our kits rule. End of. Even Trinny and Susanna have said so, and who am I to doubt their wisdom? LOL
