The Newcastle fans in the Transfer Tavern have been raving over this club announcement. The fans have been waiting for both signings and kit announcements for a long time and they’ve finally got what they wished for as the Magpies away kit for the 2018/19 season has been released.

As things stand, the Magpies are set to go into the new season with two new signings and two gorgeous new kits. The fans will be hoping that Rafa Benitez men can ick on from last season’s 10th place finish, although the competition in the Premier League seems to get stronger every season that goes by and if the club don’t move to bring in some of their top targets then they could end up stuck in a relegation battle next season.
Whether the club are in a relegation battle or not, the fans can’t wait to see the Geordies step out at St James Park in their new away kit that’s been modelled on their famous 1995/96 away kit. The fans will take great pride in buying their latest strip and as things stand the club do look set to make some more signings over the next few weeks, despite fan unrest around a lack of movement in the window.
