There are some gutsy green contraptions around this season, aren’t there?

Some are fair efforts; others sail too close to the classic ‘keeper shirt for outfield comfort. This third shirt from Nike and Preston is the keeperiest keeper shirt that any ‘keeper has ever kept in. To the point where I had to double check that I wasn’t looking at the actual ‘keeper shirt in error.

I just can’t get onboard with this at all, which is a shame as I reeeeally like the collar and the diagonal stripes are a nice effect. Yet all they do is serve to make this a better ‘keeper shirt.

As an aside, Preston are peddling a black and grey ‘keeper shirt this season that would pass as a decent change strip. Maybe buy that too and swap it with the threeper shirt in your head?
