Grant Holt, Jonny Howson and Jacob Butterfield modelled the striking new kit at a special unveiling ceremony at the club’s Chapelfield store in front of a huge crowd of supporters.

It is the first time since 2008-09 – then under Glenn Roeder – that City have worn black.

The verdict?

“It’s nice,” said Holt. “I had a look at it the other day and it’s good. It is always nice to bring out something new.”

  • Well apart from making money, I don't get it. I'm convinced teams wearing their second strip perform less well because instinctively they are not looking for that colour to the same degree as the primary strip. And then you chop and change the second strip year on year and it has to add to this problem... I'd like to see stats comparing performance in first strip against second strip away from home...

  • Don't get carried away by the only vaguely correct thing you've said this year billy. True there's no such thing as AN Away strip - there is a Standard strip, and there is a Change strip, which is meant to be used by the Away team in the event of a clash of colours. So far as Norwich are concerned, we could have a clash with Wolves, Watford, Cambridge United and even Burton Albion if we were to be called upon to play them, let alone the many teams who use yellow as their "second" colours, which when used at Home would force us to change ours! As for a money making scam - that is true, but every club does it - look how many different strips Manchester United go through in a season! Do you really expect Norwich City to be the only ones who don't? !!

  • Richard, I agree, but I think the teams training kit is now black so I hope this will make a difference to the performance issues you highlight.

  • True, there is no doubting the universality of the replica kit rip-off. If people want it and can afford it, where`s the harm if it makes them happy? I still think Delia`s pies, sold under licence at £9.95 each on Reggie`s market stall, would provide a useful additional revenue stream. ;-)

  • God, that picture is sinister. Looks like three Grim Reapers going for a bit of retail therapy. Very "slimming" for Holty, though.
