Newcastle United's launch of a new grey away kit for next season has gone down like a lead balloon on Twitter, with Magpies fans bemoaning just about everything they feel is wrong with the club.

As you can see from the collection of comments on the kit, there's very little to be positive about on Tyneside at present.


There's a lone cry of support for the goalkeeping kit, but even that's tempered by an observation about how miserable Tim Krul looks to be posing in it, and doubts about whether he'll be around next season.

The same doubts apply to the other two players pictured in the photo (Moussa Sissoko and Fabricio Coloccini).

Thoughts then turn to the kit.

Grey was famously the colour Manchester United abandoned midway through a game in 1996 because manager Sir Alex Ferguson said the players could not see one another.

There's a couple of digs at payday loan company and sponsor Wonga, before the predictable calls for manager Alan Pardew and owner Mike Ashley to leave the club.

That's probably about the sort of reaction you have to expect these days when the club has lost their last six games on the spin and the mood is at rock-bottom.
