What The Premier League Clubs Kits Should Look Like: Part One

Some of you will have noted that our occasional artist Ted Carter put down his crayons in favour of hunching over a keyboard and reviewed the Premier League clubs team kits for the start of the 2012/13 season. He’s not, however, merely satisfied with merely criticising the garish outfits that these over-indulged buffoons will be running around in over the next nine months. He has decided to design a home and away kit for each of the twenty clubs of this Premier League, and has included the only sponsors that these clubs should ever have – even if some of the companies no longer exist (and, by the looks of it, some of them are just random words rather than actual companies themselves. Here is part one, and part two will follow shortly.

It’s almost the new football season, which means that hundreds of thousands of old plastic bottles have laid down their lives so that we all might easily tell who is on which team. Yes, it’s time for my kit review again. But this year, I have gone the extra mile and provided helpful diagrams for all of the representatives of the clubs and kit manufacturers, in order to prove that kit design really isn’t all that hard. Up for consideration are every home and change strip for the twenty Premier League teams, because as we all know third kits are a cynical marketing exercise. I have rated each kit out of five for an overall score out of ten (maths!), in order to make an early season league table. I’m not saying that this will be a reflection of the final league table for 2012/13, – that is...

New Season, New Club… New Mungo

The new season is looming, and we are delighted to announce that Mungo will be returning for the new season in the next few few weeks, with Mungo McCrackas having returned to Scotland after his year long stint with Primrose Hill Ramblers in London. Here’s our resident artisan Ed Carter to tell you a little bit more about his return to Scotland. Any similarities to actual events are, of course, entirely coincidental. Glasgow Paisley have been relegated after going bust, but they have a saviour: Sir Roddy Bulbs. He buys the club and forms a newco under the conditions...
