Manchester City 09/10 Umbro third kit

The new Manchester City 09/10 third kit has been officially unveiled last week. Many City fans have been waiting for the full unveiling of the kit and they won't be disappointed. The kit goes back to the Seventies and is probably best described as a ‘classic remastered’. kit designer, David Blanch, definitely thinks so:

"The third kit is something that I believe is very special. It’s a modern interpretation Of City’s original sash design. However, we have moved the sash design to the other side. One of the reasons for doing this is that we wanted to draw attention to the crest, and this was done with the full support of the club and the club’s sponsor, Ethiad.

It was important that the sash did not distract from the crest but instead created a frame for the crest. If we did it the other way the diamond would dominate and this wasn’t something we wanted to do. Sure, we could have moved the crest over to its original position but we felt it was important to keep the crest where it belongs - above the heart. With the sponsor, we wanted to make sure that it wouldn’t interfere with the sash. For the last decade, or so, any shirt with a design across the front is compromised with a space where the sponsor sits. Well this is a pure football kit and the sponsor - whether it is a brand or a manufacturer - should look to compliment the kit. By placing the sponsor under the crest and not breaking the sash, we’ve blended contemporary with traditional design. This goes to show that innovation isn’t always about technology.

When I look at the final product, I’m really pleased because it makes such a statement. It stands out from the crowd - globally as well as domestically - in a way we haven’t seen for years. I’d like to think that this kit demonstrates that a sponsor can enhance a design rather than compromise it.”

Look how proud Robinho is to wear this great shirt with such rich history behind it. I bet he dreams of emulating all those City legends of the past, such as... err... erm.... . :unsure:

I particularly like the way the sponsor\'s logo is reduced to fit the design of the shirt. Reduce all sponsor advertising space for everybody!

I\'m a liverpool fan and i love our kits this season, but ever since i saw the leaks i\'ve had to concede that their kits are by far the best for 09/10

To not interfere with the shirt design. I prefer it this way to keep it more \"traditional\"

Decent kit, but the original kit ( the one in the black and white photo ) is superb...

Most of the Europeans domestic leagues have started so a lot, if not all, the kits of the kits have been released... There probably wont be much new on the site until June/July time ;-)

Really like it. A little strange that they\'ve chosen Man United colours for the cash... Mind you, im sure that was ok back in the 70s. Man city have the classiest kits this season.

Are you not capable of reading a couple of paragraphs which explain the kit design? or is that too difficult for your pea sized brain !

someones touchy :lol:
Idk if this is what he meant, but in the original, everything is switched. The crest, the umbro logo, and the sash. I wonder why they didn\'t switch everything for this kit. It would have been something different from the logo on the left, crest on the right that most clubs use

I wouldn\'t say that especially since city never touched a red kit until 1969, and united have never worn sky blue

WOW, imagine what an England Shirt of this kind would look like?

A red-white sash on a white shirt?

Honestly i do quite often criticize the current shirt designs, no matter if Adidas, Nike, Umbor, Pumo or whatever. But this one is fantastic.

I really hate collared shirts but for this one I think it will actually look better with it. Or at least a different round neck design or a V neck.
