For the season 2013/14 Atl. Mad. has launched a new home and away jersey + a new name kit for the home as well as for the away jersey.

Atletico Madrid name and number kit 13/14


The great hope for Atleti is their new striker David Villa. David Villa was a great striker for Valencia and has delivered for the Spanish national team though often playing in an somewhat ackward role out on the left wing. In FC Barcelona he clearly suffered in their system but still delivered a decent amount of goals and assists. In Atletico DV will get back to playing the role he does the best. The number 9 being the classical striker hoovering in front of the opponent’s goal.

The name and number kit for the season 13/14 is blue with a white outline. The numbers have a club logo at the bottom.

Various Clubs . . .

Manchester City will play in a new away kit next season paying homage to their rich history and the club’s founding fathers.

Click here to read the full press release!

City were created as St Mark’s in 1880, before becoming Gorton AFC in 1884, and then Ardwick AFC between 1887 and 1894.

The new City away jersey has a subtle half and half design, which represents Ardwick AFC who played in the same design during the 1890-91 season. The halves of the jersey are in dark charcoal and black representing Gorton AFC who played in a black shirt, the first ever recorded kit of what would become Manchester City in 1884.

The jersey features a grandfather collar, a long placket and a stand at the back.

The Manchester City crest, the Nike swoosh and sponsor’s logo are all in gold to represent the club’s recent success in modern times.

The new away shorts are black, while the new away socks are black with a dark charcoal band at the top.

Fabric and Nike Dri-Fit

– The jersey weighs just 150 grams, 23 percent lighter than previous Nike kits. It also boasts a 20 percent stronger knit structure and significantly improved stretch.

– The fabric uses Nike Dri-FIT technology to draw sweat away from the body through the fabric where it can evaporate, to keep players cool and dry.

– Ventilation zones under the arms on both sides, as well as at the shorts waistband, to allow additional comfort and cooling. A mesh panel across the entire back increases air circulation.


Name and Number kit

As can be spotted from the shorts the Man City printing for the away kit 13/14 will be the gold / white Premier League style.

Both for the jersey and for the shorts.

Manchester United

Man Utd squad 2013/14: Cesc ? Fabregas ))

Manchester United 13/14 squad building

This post-season has seen a lot of movement in the European transfer markets.

However, one of the heavy weights in the game Manchester United has not made any moves so far.

Rumors will tell you though that they are targeting FC Barcelona player Cesc Fabregas.

Cesc has already shown that he is ready for the game in England by his performance with Arsenal.

and United be lacking a deep threat coming from the midfield and breaking into to the front without the opponent noticing.

The question is. Will FC Barcelona let him go just days after saying goodbye to Thiago another one of their up and coming midfielders. . .

Paris SG squad 13/14 Edinson Cavani

New Player in Paris: Edinson Cavani

The eagle has landed around 6pm CET Cavani was presented at a press conference at Parc de Prince in Paris.

He has signed a deal with PSG for 5 years.

According to the president of the club the goal is to win the UCL within a time frame of 4 years.

So Cavani is probably thought to be an important building block in order to obtain that goal.


Cavani 9 at Paris SG

An attacking duo of Cavani and Ibra the two top scoring champions in Italy over the past two seasons spells danger for any opposing side. The question is if they will be a good match ? Just like the question looms with regard to the Messi and Neymar duo at Barcelona.

An exciting new season in the making.


AC Milan

New AC Milan home jersey: We Are AC Milan

New AC Milan home jersey 2013/14: We are AC Milan

The AC Milan third jersey came out in May. The color is gold.

The away jersey came out in the beginning of July. The color is white with gold stripes.

Finally mid-July has seen the release of the 13/14 AC Milan home jersey. The classical rosso-neri colors with gold stripes.


New AC Milan home jersey 13/14


A pity that the corresponding name and number kits will continue from the season 12/13 and thus be white/black for the home jersey and red/black for the away kit. The right color for the name and number kits would surely have been gold to match the golden stripes which are present on jerseys as well as on shorts.

New and rising star Juventus – Pogba #6

New Juventus star French youngster Pogba!

Elected as best player during the World Cup under 20 played in Istanbul during summer of 2013 a tournament as the French won, Pogba is a rising star in the world of football.

Juventus thus have plenty of talent up front for the upcoming season with the likes of Llorente, Tevez, Vidal, and thus also Pogba.

Not surpricing that fading Danish star Niclas Bendtner decided to move and try his luck elsewhere.

Too expensive for Frankfurt. Will the right fit be with Hull City ?

But to go back to Italy. Juventus look strong for the season 13/14 and must be considered as a contender for the honors in Europe.

Real Madrid

New Real Madrid player: Asier Illarramendi

New Real Madrid player: Asier Illarramendi

The sixth most expensive player ever in the history of the club.

Only C. Ronaldo, Zidane, Kaka, Figo, and Ronaldo were more expensive.

39 million Euros has the transfer for Asier Illarramendi from Spanish side Real Sociedad cost los Blancos.

He will wear the number 24 and the writing on the jersey will be the short form of the long name )

So next up is Bale and then to let go of a number of players from the current Real Madrid squad then the shape of the team for the 13/14 looks more or less set.
