Manchester United have today released an official picture for our new home kit for the 07/08 campaign.

The kit, which is due to release on August 1st is, to say the least very plain. Apart from a single vertical white line on the back (not visible in the photo, but strong links that there will be one suggest so) the kit is just red. The special badge crest which we saw on last season`s kit has been removed, and though the design is very simple, it works to good affect. As usual, the red kit is accompanied by white shorts and black socks, which is traditional to Manchester United.

In addition to this, there is also a new goalkeeper kit, a rich blue top, with presumably blue shorts and black socks. I actually feel this worked extremely well, and feel this is one of the better goalkeeper kits we have ever had.

One intriguing feature of this picture is the notable absence of Mikeal Silvestre (no one could miss that head!!) Could this suggest a move, or was he simply absent for the photoshoot. Whatever the situation, this would appear to be our new home kit, and though I have traditionally bought a new shirt whenever they have came out, I feel this is just too similar to last years to merit a purchase. However, I`m still waiting for our new away kit, which is rumoured to be black, as black kits seem to always look good.
