Firstly, not a fan....

Secondly, and most importantly, £50 for a kids shirt! Disgusting!

I quite like it for practical reasons, my boy plays league football and like all of the kids they like to train in their supported team kit. White shorts were a nightmare to get clean in late Autumn and Winter, so black shorts is a result in this regard. I've always thought our kits looked better with black shorts too.

I will end up getting this kit for the boy, SportsDirect often work out quite a bit cheaper than the RRP but they are still expensive. Think KitBag has them for £15 less already. 3 new kits every season is way too excessive, if you add the training tops etc then there is about 5 new kits every season, bonkers.

My lad will probably get the shirt for his holidays. Someone invariably gets him one for his birthday. Training top is a good staving filler at Christmas. At least you’re not shelling out 100s for them.

Not entirely impressed by the black shorts being out primary shorts for the season. United to me have always been red shirts, white shorts and black socks. Its fine if they're clashing when playing a team away from home with white shorts (in which case you should be able to buy them anyway).

It is going to be very odd watching United play at Old Trafford in this kit.

Everything about it is horrible, especially the shorts.

Who actually decides on the kit? Serious question, was discussing yesterday.

Would imagine the club gets various kits to choose from and has the right to veto any it feels are inappropriate, but this would be a guess.

I don't mind it. And I've always preferred black shorts anyway.

But as one chap above said, £50 quid for a kids' top?! I remember having to save up for ages for the 98/99 one - this would take bloody forever.

All of the above.

But a Glazer could have us in pink at the end of the day.

I always just get them a year later in Elverys/Intersport in Fonthill there, got the last two for a tenner... I generally just wear them lounging round the house then, nice to have them while my beer belly isn’t at the stage where I look like a complete Onslow from Keeping Up Appearances wearing them... not yet anyway!!!

Ffs, grow up lad. If you can't handle opinions perhaps you should stay clear of forums?
