Journalist Alasdair Gold has been left impressed after Tottenham Hotspur revealed their new home kit for next season.
Earlier this week, Spurs officially shared what their new strip would look like ahead of the next campaign. On the club website, they wrote: “It celebrates a classic shirt design that brings a sense of authenticity and togetherness amongst our fans.”
The ‘lilywhite’ shirt is said to be made from 100% recycled polyester and has ‘neon volt detail’ throughout. The shorts will be navy blue, while white socks will also be worn with the kit.
Having seen the new images of the home strip, Gold took to Twitter to offer up his opinion. He wrote: “What do you make of the new Spurs home kit, now officially launched? My opinion, for what it’s worth, it’s not too shabby.”

TIF thoughts on Tottenham and the kit…
Interestingly enough, Gold later wrote an article for football.london suggesting there was some sort of ‘subtle message’ within the club’s launch video.
Indeed, he spoke of how one person in the video is lying in a park reading a ‘Top 10 Istanbul’ sightseeing book. He pointed out that the Champions League final next season is being played at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul and so this could be a nod to the club’s aspirations.
Of course, Spurs just about made it into the top four over the past Premier League season, so they will have a shot at European glory next term.
It might not impact how they play, but if the fans agree with Gold, the club’s summer has at least got off to a good start with this kit launch.
