The Americanness Of Manchester United’s New Kits

Goodbye, Patrik Ervell. Hello, Chevrolet. Manchester United has a new home kit. The previous, a sharp number that paid homage to Manchester's connection to the textile industry (i.e. gingham), clothed the Red Devils during David Moyes' remarkably dreadful tenure as manager. And, as such, goes the way of the gray kits that rendered players invisible on the pitch during the '90s. Those little collars have been told to fuck right of, except on Puma's new Arsenal alternate.

In replacement of the Ervellian design is a new look that borrows, seemingly, from Little League baseball. There is a single button henley placket and then there is, well, a fantastically large Chevy ribbon. Americanness doesn't suit football (sorry, Glazer family), and unless Louis van Gaal rights the ship, this one should, like last year's kit, go the way of the dodo in 12 months time.
