A natty little number in black

Posted on June 3rd, 2011 | 86 Comments |

Toon 3rd kit for 2011-2012.
3rd kit
Newcastle United’s third strip for the 2011-2012 season is quite stylish in my opinion.

I think the Toon’s third kit looks quite nice (left, modelled by Shola), but then again I’m a fan of black (and black is the new black, as they say).

It’s much nicer than the second kit in my opinion.

I will admit that fashion isn’t my bag though. I’ve been a jeans and t-shirt (plain t-shirts, obviously) man for most of my life and that’s unlikely to change. I will admit to brief periods of the New Romantic and Miami Vice looks in the early 80’s and of course the 70’s were just ludicrous, but I’ve always gravitated back to a pair of jeans and a plain t-shirt.

Although I do have a fondness for hats.

Just a bit of ‘blog maintenance news too. We will be offline for about 20 minutes at some point between 10PM and midnight tonight to replace a dodgy memory stick that’s caused a few problems over the last few days. I’m also taking this opportunity to add some more memory into the box, so the ‘blog should be even faster in future.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

I hope you all have a great weekend. It’s looking like barbecue weather down here in sunny Somerset.

  1. new top is great. infact, i like all three this year. home strip is a ripper!!

  2. What three kits you spacker craig we’ve only seen the home and third you sydrome, go die!!!!

  3. Like this one, not too keen on the keeper top though :-)

    Still they done a better job for next season than the first puma kit.

  4. Really quite fetching I’d say.

    I usually just buy the away/change shirts anyway, and being a black man, although caucasian , I’ll most certainly be investing my pennies. Digging the new-look gold effect too – maybe Mr Ranger had an input at the design concept stage, urban.

    Shame about the massive sponsors all the time though, mate at work is a Wednesday fan, he said they’re selling the shirts in the club shop for a limited period without the advertising emblazoned on the front, while they’re deciding on a sponsor. If only all clubs offered that option.

    ….mind you, apart from broon ale, ‘Northern Rock’ is quite fitting, and has to be better than ‘Emirates’ etc, not to mention ‘chupa chups’ that my stalwart owly friends have had to put up with in the past.

    (have we signed anyone yet?)

  5. craig is a spacker (haha), 2nd is rumoured to be orange innit? not sure I’ll snap one of them up. Death Row-tastic.

  6. I think the new top is a cracker. havent bought one for ages as I dont really like wearing footy tops it always reminds me of thick mackems wandering around the metro centre thinking they’re cool.

    but I would defo wear this one, looks smart and classy.

  7. alreet Hugh, yeah I knew about those two – just being a bit impatient. I’m anticipating a mini exodus, so my new signing count will probably start at our 4th signing! :)

  8. Well there’s certainly plenty of speculation. Reckon we could lose out on both Gervinho and Gameiro though, which is a shame as I reckon they’re both quality.

  9. should be easy to pick out the players under the floodlights if used just hope the ref not in black

  10. CLiNT, back in black! outa sight.

    I’m still wearing the 2000/01 and 2003/04 shirts now! make good biking Ts.

    (I’ve washed them since then of course)

  11. Hugh, yeah mate, can’t help thinking all this French lark is pure speculation coz people know we’re sniffing. I said in an earlier post that I think we’ll sign players suddenly, and without media warning. Best way really.

  12. Rodz,
    i’m still wearing the NTL one in black mate.
    :)
    & yea, i’ve washed mine too, in between wears, just for a laugh mind.
    :)

  13. CLiNT, haha. yeah washing is always good for a laugh. Especially if you’re a mackem, then you can get the whole street round to chortle at the most unusual of spectacles!

    :D

  14. Has Cabaye officially signed now then??? I thought he had just told his team mates he was coming here. I always harbour a bit of doubt unitil i see a smiling face holding the balck and white stripes for a photo.

  15. ben, nowt ‘official’ yet mate. Who knows with our cloak and dagger board. Got a LONG time to go until the next season, given our tight-arse negotiation techniques I wouldn’t hold yer breath…

  16. ……and speaking of blackmail/injunctions, I was in London a few weeks back at a mate’s leaving doo. Met someone who works for the Daily Star. Patrice Evra has been rumbled participating in a sex act with his male manager/agent in the presence of 2 female prostitutes, one of whom being the infamous Rooney prozza.

    Injunctions stopped the story going to press, so you probli won’t see it in print. Just goes to show. Fanny awld gime futbowl.

  17. …..weyy! Just fund a light bulb. Lost the leccy for a bit.

    Aye, CLiNT, funny fumes awa there like.

  18. Mine’s a donna, marra – not a Maradonna though but – he’s a cheatin dago and he’s not from Brazil unlike Mirandinha who was fukn bril.

  19. ….hhmmm, a marshmallow doner, now there’s a concept. Was just actually thinking of something similar, then forgot what I was on about.

  20. TURKEY FU<KING HAM!!?!?!

    …..dear lord, for what we are about to receive, can you please fkin explain what kind of animal makes this? (god is a <unt, and he's fine with that, apparently).

  21. ….mind you, must admit ad be pretty scared if a saw a fully grern live turkey ham running towards iz. Fu<king MASSIVE BEAK, stocky bastid anarl. Tiny little feet but HHHEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWGGGGEEEE teeth. Hand gone, nee wurries. Find it next Boxing Day, in the bargain bin at Aldi. pund.

  22. :)

    I’ve oft pondered the mystery of the ‘turkey ham quandry’, as it’s know in sociology circles.

    :)

  23. It seams to me, that all we see, is violence in movies and sex on tv but where are those good old fashioned values, on which we used to rely? Lucky there’s a Fray Bentos pie… yummy.

  24. …good old Fray Bentos – I fought in the great pie war with Corporal Fray; my forefathers before endured the Tyne-Brand (no fat or gristle guaranteed) riots of 1732.

    Fray Bentos has gone WAY downhill for me though.

    Bring Back Tyne Brand!

  29. fair play tho, just never appreciated his lack of overall view. Loves nicking any old fkin headline from anywhere to try and boost his hits, completely bypassing any sort of honesty. Disappointed I got barred again. Guess that line of business dictates a certain lifestyle.

  30. I have an 8ft ant sat in my back yard asking for more biscuits, so I must leave for my own safety.

    Tatty bye for noo!

  31. so what difference does it make?

    I take all my hats off to Joey Barton.

    Hope you remain black and white.

    Know which way the watta flows.

  32. …you need a more cosmopolitan blog here lads. Lob a few pics of random footballers up, with a sensationalist headline, job done. And you’ve raised the bar in Geordie loyalty too.

    …now where did that FBI get to. Honestly, what a nob. Fair play though, although foul.

  33. …so it comes to pass,

    JOEY, sign him up fatty. He’s one of the most honest fkers I’ve seen in a black and white shirt, so waht if he’s 3, or whatever.

    The lad has the HEART OF A LION and knows what ‘Loyalty’ means.

  34. …or food, even worse. What the fu<k am I gona do in order to appease the lord of darkness now?

  35. doesn’t work.

    Bring me the feet of Adrian Chiles, I need them for a dirty pastie. Been collecting for years, nearest I could get to complete my collection was a Tiitchmarsh Roll.

    ….who’d have thought it eh.

  36. There’ll be time enough for countin’………when the dealing’s done.

  37. Yeh, this looks nice, its only too bad we rarely suit up in the 3rd strip. 3rd kits are nice since they never look too dated. I like the home kit too, don’t recall seeing the away kit.

  38. This black number is better than the new home shirt. With white shorts and black socks, THIS should have been the new home strip.

  39. Actually, we’re signing so many Frenchmen, shouldnn’t we have a black shirt with white sleeves, to be like Arsenal ? (Well the first strip has, so…)
