Shirts for 2007/08: Portsmouth (3rd)

So this is it, then - the final part of our look at some of the new shirts to be launched for the 2007/08 Premier League season. We've already featured one shirt for each team since we got the ball rolling with Tottenham back in May, but one team remains overlooked as we end our series and that's Portsmouth so let's look at their new 'third' shirt...

Here it is, and as you can see it's black and gold, thereby contrasting distinctly with Pompey's other blue and white kits. It's made by Canterbury, a company from New Zealand that's been making rugby kits for ages and we think they've made a fair attempt with their initial offerings for Portsmouth this year.

OK, so they may not go for the more spectacular line of styling and their shirts might not be universally liked, but as you can see from this one it's smart, subdued and inoffensive. Not only that, but it's also available, so why not head down to the Portsmouth FC online shop and buy yourself one - they're only £39.99! (No? Oh well, at least we tried...)

So do you agree with our thoughts or are we wide of the mark this time? Have you EVER agreed with any of our thoughts?! Probably not, but let's not worry about that now... We'd like you to tell us what you think of the Portsmouth 3rd shirt above, so leave us a comment, choose an option on our online vote below or do both. It's your last chance after all...


The final results were as follows:

Excellent: 20 (61%)
Good: 8 (24%)
OK: 1 (3%)
Poor: 1 (3%)
Terrible: 3 (9%)


And that's about it. We've now featured all twenty Premier League teams, so if there's any you haven't judged for yourself, check out the 'Shirts For 2007/08' links on the right and add your votes. At the end of the year, we'll review the scores and see which shirts were the most popular and which you couldn't give a damn about.

Before we go, a quick heads-up for all you fans of football shirts and strips who might be fearing withdrawal symptoms. Fear not - we're lining up another Kit Legend vote like the England one we did back in February. All we'll say at this stage is if you're Scottish, we think you'll like what we've got to offer... :)
