Earlier today Southampton released the much anticipated third strip for the coming Premier League season of 2018/19.

The timing of the release was done to coincide with this afternoon’s friendly against French Ligue 1 side Dijon as we conclude our time out in France at the training camp. The latest Under Armour addition goes on Saturday and whilst it’s been described as a ‘clever twist’ on our home strip, plenty of fans were quick to just describe it as simply ‘darker’.

With a number of fans failing to see the point in such a similar strip for the coming year and questioning when we would, in fact, use it, there were certainly others amongst the fanbase who liked it and even suggested it should be the new home kit full stop.

All kits are subjective and you never get 100% agreement amongst any fanbase in football, and it’s not a complete turn off by any means. As a home strip variant I can see the sense in this one when it came to being something slightly different but as a third strip, I can’t say it overly works for me.
