NUFC home kit, 2019/20

Newcastle United have unveiled their home shirt for the upcoming 2019/20 season.

The club say the Puma kit is inspired by the Fairs Cup winning side of 1969 - the last Magpies team to lift a major European Trophy.

NUFC say "Just like the black and white jersey proudly worn by the stars of 1969, the new home shirt will feature a familiar black round-neck collar with white trim, while a tonal crest will adorn the Magpies’ classic black and white stripes,"

"The kit will again feature black shorts, while traditional black and white turnover socks - as worn by Joe Harvey’s triumphant side - also make a return."

As expected, Fun88, return as the main sponsor.

 But as any football club will tell you, you can't please everyone - and Twitter users haven't held back!





Some fans were just upset about the way the kit was unveiled... 



Others were more optimistic...



And some may even be parting with the £65 it costs to get one:



The new kit becomes available in shops from July 1st... how many you'll see being worn around Toon is another matter.
