The Kitbliss Podcast

Episode 22: Kit News Catch-Up

Published: 22 January 2020. Special guests: John Devlin (, Rich Johnson ( and Jay ( Duration: 2h 17m.

Our first podcast of the new year sees us diving headlong back into the world of football kit design with a lengthy recap of all that's been going on kit-wise since late last year.

As is often the case, there are more questions than answers: Just what is Newcastle United's traditional away kit colour? Is Arsenal's white as white as other team's whites? And should a football badge actually have a football on it?

In other random subject matters, we also wonder if it's only us that's starting to see football kit branding and motifs in everyday life, just what is the validity of pre-match shirts, and once and for all HAVE WE HAD ENOUGH BLACKOUT SHIRTS ALREADY?

All this plus miscellaneous Euro 2020 tittle-tattle and of course the visual guide that is the Kitbliss Podcast Crib Sheet... what more could you possibly want?

(Answer: a podcast that doesn't sound like Chris is speaking from a telephone box in 1940's Berlin. Apologies for that...)
