I’ve just had a quick check through and I may be wrong but in the last two seasons every club that has played in the Premier League has had a black or very dark blue/navy away/third kit except for Arsenal and Middlesbrough (who have had their fair share of black kits in the past). I’m sure that in the lower leagues the penchant for black/dark away kits is widespread too. Its almost getting to the point where every match will have the home team in their standard colours and the away team in black! Personally I’m getting a little tired of seeing a team coming out in a dark and mysterious black outfit. It seems a lazy choice for change colours. I’d like to see a more varied palette across away/third kits in the coming seasons – there’s plenty of colour scope relating to clubs’ histories and it would really freshen up the teams.
