Voila_Capture 2014-03-05_08-38-11_AMThis is all very exciting, I know. The Union unveiled their new home kits yesterday. They feature substantially more gold.

That’s it. That’s the whole story. The Union have a slightly different new home kit. These things could be made out of fine silk and actual gold, and they’d still look terrible because of that hideous Bimbo logo.

  1. Stop pretending to be an ‘authentic’ soccer fan, Kyle, it just makes you look like more of a fraud. Just call them uniforms for Christ’s sake.

  2. Kyle’s one of those douchebags that call hockey jersey’s “sweaters”…

      Mike A is one of those douchebags that puts an apostrophe at the end of big hard words.

      • Catch a damn pass is one of those douchebags who thinks a quotation mark is called an apostrophe.

        • I believe Mr. Pass was refering to the apostrophe employed by Mr. A at the end of the word “jersey”. His sarcastic tone implied misuse of the apostrophe followed by the letter “s” to indicate plurality when it should have been written as “jerseys”.

    Are they still giving away free loaves of bread after the game? That’s all the matters really.

  4. This is the LAST YEAR for the BIMBO sponsorship

    They’re not called jerseys. They’re called kits. I’m not being a hipster. They’re called kits in soccer.

    • The rest of the world calls the game football, but you’ve adopted the American term of ‘soccer’, haven’t you? Just stop. You just started watching soccer last week for all intents and purposes. You’re totally being a hipster, and it’s not becoming.

    • I believe the term “kit” in the soccer world refers to the entire player outfit including the socks, shorts, and jersey (or shirt). The jersey is part of the kit.

    • Fine, but if you post about soccer from here on out you have to call it football, you have to call the field the pitch, and you can’t say zero you have to say nil. Fair enough?

  6. Kyle is right, they are called kits. Also I hate how every team in the world releases a new one every year, with small modifications, in a money grab. At least if you buy a Phillies/Eagles/Flyers jersey you’re good for a decade unless you have a name on the back.

    The Union should use the money to bringing in top names, that would bring people out. Edu was a nice signing but it doesn’t leave me hanging off the edge of my seat. I’ve supported The Metrostars (now Redbull) since the league started (since there was no local Philly team) so I’m slowly trying to move over to the Union but no big names in Philly doesn’t help. Even if Redbull has only won a supporters shield in all those years, least they brought in big exciting names. Philly hasn’t won nor done that.

    This post should have included the US National Team’s new kit for Brazil (World Cup). How boring! It’s a mix of tennis/golf and so bland with all the white. It looks like something England would wear.

    • I don’t care what the rest of the world calls them. In the U.S. we call them uniforms and jerseys. Using stupid terms like ‘kits’ is part of the reason this country has never bought into the sport on a grand scale.

      To bastardize a quote from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, ‘I’m not European. I don’t plan on becoming European…and who gives a shit that they call soccer uniforms “kits”…’

        The US is a fucking gay joke dude, maybe if you ever left your basement you would understand that.

      • In the US we also

        – Are fat slobs
        – Are lucky to get peanuts with our beer (in Spain they get free small plates of real food with their alcohol)
        – Work even on holidays now (besides Christmas Day) while overseas they get whole months off or get siestas during the day
        – We can’t “relegate” teams to lower tier leagues if they perform poorly because of financial reasons
        – Transportation system sucks

        Does it make the US right? The kit existed before the uniform/jersey so go fuck yourself “Just Stop”. Go watch Ferris Bueller, you’re living in the past man… holding onto some movie from the 80s.

  7. what about that guy that admitted to being a RedBulls fan?

    These jerseys/kits/whatever are ridiculous, and no color of the rainbow will make any difference as long as they have “BIMBO” on the front.

    (To paraphrase Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own: “Bimbos are what you sleep with after the game, not what you wear during the game”.)
