Broken glass, everywhere.

Footy Headlines has a “leaked” image of Manchester City’s 2020-21 home kit, and we have to say that the mosaic pattern is spot-on.

Clubs are getting a little creative this season, as evidenced by Roma’s slick away shirt, and City is no different.

The club’s usual sky blue shirts are greeted by white cracks of varying thickness, given a sort of one-color stained glass window look. It takes its cues from mosaics around the City of Manchester.

We think it’s very sharp. City has been pretty consistent with a plain home shirt over the past few seasons. Before that, there were the darker blue shoulders of 2016-17 and white-button collar of 2015-16.

The red shirt with a gold crest has a white V-neck and white at the ends of the sleeves. The goalkeeper kit is green.

Early leaks of Manchester United’s 2016-17 home kit showed a bit of two-tone, vertical red, and it appears they were the real deal.

United’s Adidas shirt boasts three white stripes under the arms and is a subdued approach at something different.

Yes, you’ve got two tones. Yes, there’s the loud white stripes, but all are placed in a close to non-controversial way. I like it better on the artistic promo shot (below) then the hanging shirt, but such is the nature of marketing.

That includes the hijab, a veil that covers the head and chest and is widely associated with the Muslim faith’s article that a woman be covered in the presence of adult males outside their family.

From CNN.com:

Revealed to the public on International Women’s Day, the new red kit includes an integrated base layer which allows women to be covered from head to toe when they take to the pitch.

Noted uniform web site FootyHeadines has posted a photo it claims is a close-up of next season’s Manchester United kit.

The two-tone red shirt is supposed to recall the green-and-gold shirt worn by United predecessors Newton Heath.

It’s a bit of a change from United’s first Adidas kit, which is straight-up red with three white stripes on the shoulders.

Obviously this doesn’t give the full kit, but the idea is intriguing. Netherlands wore a similar two-shaded kit for Euro 2012, but the difference in hues appeared more drastic (I’d suggest that’s probably an “orange” thing more than anything).
