We have finally reached that stage of pre-season when every Premier League team has released their home kit for the new campaign.
Some away jerseys still need to be unveiled, but all 20 sides have revealed what they will be wearing when they run out to play on their own patch.
Some shirts have been praised from all corners, while others have been ridiculed – quite correctly it must be said.
But we know what you’ve all been waiting for: talkSPORT.com’s official ranking of all the 2018/19 Premier League home shirts.
Well, we’ve obliged to the public’s wishes, and you can see all 20 kits rated and ranked, from worst to best, below…
Didn’t your primary school teacher ever tell you to never use black on a red background? Clearly United’s kit designers missed that lesson, and as a result, they are making my eyeballs vomit. No, not bleed… vomit.
How bloody hard is it to make a plain white shirt? Leave all the fads and flights of fancy to others, Tottenham, and iron a club badge on a white t-shirt from the pound shop. See, I’ve just designed a better shirt than the one you’re stuck with for the next 10 months.
Urgh. You know that set of pyjamas you have with the button-up collar that’s too tight? Of course you don’t know that, because something so stupid has never been invented! Plus, who’s idea was it to hire Angry Birds as a sleeve sponsor? Probably the same person who thought it was a good idea to spend £50million on Richarlison.
Brilliant football, vulgar kit. Man City are lamb dressed as mutton, when the mutton comes from a sheep left to rot in a field for six months, during which time it was savaged by crows.
The red and white lines are obviously a nod to Chelsea’s history, but there were surely so many better ways to implement the colours than the one chosen, which is known in the trade as ‘child wearing a blindfold uses crayons for the first time’.
Aesthetically pleasing colours ruined by a huge sponsor that takes away from the best part of the shirt – the V pattern running from right to left.
When blandness is the order of the day, you know who to call: Leicester City’s kit designers.
Those stripes are just gorgeous. It’s just a shame they decide to ruin them with a huge logo.
It’s a classic, if lacking invention. Manchester United, this is how you combine black and red in a manner that doesn’t bring on severe nausea.
Perhaps the smoothest kit released this season. This is the three piece suit of football shirts; simple, sharp and aesthetic, if a little on the boring side.
Puma, can you please do away with this ghastly skin-tight fit you insist on using? The Arsenal players, to paraphrase the great P.G. Wodehouse, look as if they’ve been poured into their clothes and forgotten to say ‘When!’.
West Ham are always going to be ranked high simply due to the brilliant claret and blue colour combination. It’s a shame there’s so little of the latter this time around though, and the logo is obscenely huge.
It’s certainly not as nice as last year’s elegant number, but Liverpool have come out with another jersey that combines modernity with a retro touch in the most perfect manner.
Even such a big sponsor cannot take away from just how lovely this shirt is. Newcastle really hit the jackpot when they decided upon a black and white striped home kit back in 1894.
With a horrid sponsor and a bizarre, ill-fitting collar, Huddersfield’s shirt is this high simply because they have an actual dog on the kit. Yes, the Terrier is back after almost 50 years, and, by Jove, it is wonderful.
Yes, I know stripes are not really Watford’s thing, and this kit is a clearly favouring black over the club’s natural yellow, but they are the Hornets. Hornets have black and yellow stripes, remember. I wonder where the inspiration for this one came from…
Now we’re onto the good’uns. Just take a look at that effort from Brighton; it’s suave, sophisticated, and simple without being the worst of all crimes when it comes to fashion – boring.
Wolves have somehow managed to secure a sponsor whose logo actually improves their shirt. That huge ‘W’ is really quite pleasing to the eye, even if the registered trademark logo is next to it. You can’t really go wrong with that brilliant shade of gold though, can you?
Dressed as if they’re about to defend the world in some futuristic, good vs evil anime, Palace definitely win the ‘most likely to give you a seizure’ award. Still, it’s ruddy glorious.
Topping the rankings by a serious length, it’s…… Fulham! Well done, fine sirs; the stripes are wonderful, the badge is wonderful, the sponsor is wonderful, and, oh, that black bar across the centre – there are too few superlatives in the world to describe just how good that looks. I’m getting all hot under the collar just looking at it.
