What the well-dressed Sunderland footballer will be wearing at home

home kit 2014

The three footballers
in question are John O’Shea, maybe not bound for White Hart Lane, Steven Fletcher, surely raring to go after last season’s disappointments, and – with the new goalie’s top – Vito Mannone, presumably living up to his denial of those rumours suggesting itchy feet.

So there you have the new home kit as leaked last week – I say “leaked” but cannot truly be bothered to compare and contrast – and as revealed by SAFC.com today.

The kit is officially launched on July 25 but – this is the reasonable quid pro quo for the use of images, one I volunteer rather than being insisted upon from SoL towers – already avalable for advance order (delivery on launch day) at www.safcstore.com.

‘Click and collect’ is also available free of charge, whereby fans can order their shirt in advance to be delivered to the Stadium of Light store or The Galleries, Washington, to collect in person on launch day. This must be ordered online at safcstore.com. The pre-order service is available until midday on July 22.

This, while we’re on, was the new away kit:

Feel free to say what you like and don’t like about either …. provided new kits don’t take the p***, I tend to be more concerned about the identities of those about to wear them and how they play.

  1. I think the home strip is awful. I’ve never liked black cuffs or collars on the shirt as it looks funereal, so the black panels make it even more unpleasant. The addition of a ridiculous fourth colour – the horrible dirty dull gold – to cuffs and collar just makes it messy.


    The away one is ok, but should have had a red and white collar/cuffs.

  2. Is it my eyes or has O’Shea got a bit of a pot in that pic? Bit too much Guinness when holidaying with Martin and Roy perhaps?

    • I have also read that a 3rd kit will be produced, but will not be available to buy. Bit strange that.

      • Presumably for when we play at Selhurst Park.

        Years ago (2000ish?) we played at The Dell when Southampton’s kit was mostly white with some red stripes. Our second kit was all white and for that match a one off blue kit was produced. Became a bit of a collector’s item as the only ones anyone could get their hands on were from the players.

  3. Red stripe in the centre as it should be. My son went on website this morning to buy the away strip and they’re SOLD OUT. Should have ordered more!

  4. As always, the red and white stripes are brilliant. I may even buy one if they have an XXXXL shirt. They do? Brilliant again.
