Shirts for 2007/08: Sunderland (home)

Welcome to the latest in our series 'Shirts for 2007/08' - sponsored by Umbro.

(It's not really sponsored by Umbro - it's just that we've reviewed so many new Umbro shirts in the Premier League recently that we're wondering if they know someone at the F.A., if you catch our drift.)

Today we ask you to cast your eyes over the new home shirt for Sunderland. If you can excuse the fact that their photographer clearly had one leg shorter than the other, this is what it looks like...

For full details of the Umbro styling, see our previous 'New Shirt' articles on Birmingham, Blackburn, Everton, West Ham and Wigan as we have no intention explaining that all over again.

Meantime, here's my view. This is actually quite a nice smart-looking shirt which looks pleasantly unsullied by some of the extra bits and pieces that Umbro are known to throw into their designs. It should go down well with Black Cats fans and others alike. If you're thinking about buying it, head off to Sunderland's website where you can expect to part with 35 of your English Pounds Sterling.

All that aside, what do you think of the shirt? Is it something you'd consider buying if you were a Sunderland fan, or is it so good that you're thinking of buying it even though your not? Leave us a comment and tell us your thoughts, or simply cast your vote using the facility below. We're waiting to hear what you think...


The final results were as follows:

Excellent: 7 (28%)
Good: 9 (36%)
OK: 1 (4%)
Poor: 5 (20%)
Terrible: 3 (12%)
