Back in dem days when shirts were just shirts and nought added to them. micheal parkinson would be in his element! It is wierd to think that rumour mill has suggested that Man U will be going for the neck choker look for the away kit.<br />It just looks so uncomfortable and not exactly \'hip\' for a club that obviously sees\' itself that way( stripe down the back , different neck to everyone else etc).

Good but the design is lazy having the front exactly the same as the back.
