Everton have confirmed they will indeed be going ahead with the 2018-19 season by releasing their new home kit to the public earlier today.
Perhaps it would have been wiser to save the announcement for during the summer, as a nice distraction from keeping Sam Allardyce or a poor transfer window. Either way, the kit is here, and it’s a big improvement.

The Blues will debut the threads this weekend against Southampton, and of course, they are already available for pre-order. There had been some rumblings that a new kit provider was in the works, but Umbro has work left to do, and this is one of their best efforts in years.
The design on the sleeves, the collar buttons, and the overall shading of the kit are all excellent aspects.

If they could just manage to make the Angry Birds logo about 90% smaller, we’d really be in business.
Look good, play good? Well, maybe - Wayne Rooney was included in the promotional material. What do you think of the new kit?
