New Away Jersey for Everton

Though it will be officially launched on July 12, Everton has released an image of theiy 2007-2008 away shirt on the club's official website. I'm not sure where the inspiration for this jersey came from; for a club that is visually separated from its Merseyside neighbors Liverpool by the blue in their uniform, I see nothing on their jersey that would make me think "Everton" immediately. Particularly when you take a look at their new home jersey (which can be found at the bottom of this site's homepage), this one doesn't seem to make any sense. The sponsor's logo is green and the accent color is black! No blue whatsoever can be found on this jersey.

Memo to the marketing/business staff of Everton: Next time you come out with a new jersey, at least put your club's traditional color on it somewhere!

Jersey designer: Umbro
