Chelsea 15/16 Home Shirt Reviewed

Chelsea revealed their new home shirt for the 15/16 Premier League season.

The Premier League Champions launched the new shirt under the slogan "if it's not blue it will be". This is the first time the club's new sponsor, Yokohama Tyres, are displayed on a Chelsea shirt after striking a mammoth deal with The Blues worth £40 million-a-year. Furthermore, the new shirt also features a double push-button collar, and white-and-red trim on the sleeves and collar. There are also vertical pin-stripes on the shirt, which the official Chelsea website states as "having been a feature of several iconic shirts from the past 30 years".

And certainly this shirt would not be out of place in the 1980's, as these photos will show:

The new shirt is a difficult one to judge, simply as it will polarise fans. Some fans will purr over the reference to tradition, but others fans will 'roll their eyes' at the overly retro design. But the majority concensus within Team Soccerjury is that the 14/15 home shirt was far more appealing on the eye, cleaner in its design, and generally less vainglorious. 

Will this be the Marmite of football shirts? Unfortunately, we didn't like it. Soccerjury score = 4.5/10

The 14/15 shirt was definitely better. The fit doesn't look good of the new shirt either.
