West Ham's 2015/16 home shirt tops Premier League poll

A survey in the Daily Telegraph has concluded that West Ham's new home shirt is the best of the 2015/16 season.

The new claret and blue shirt, released to coincide with West Ham United's final season at the club's spiritual home has topped the newspapers rankings in their Premier League preview, published this week.

According to the Telegraph, "West Ham's final year at Upton Park is given the tasteful kit it deserves. Perfect colours, spot-on blue placement, subtle detailing to single this out as a special season. A fine effort, and the clear winner. Hats off to all involved."

However the news wasn't so good for all concerned. Swansea's new dark blue and lime green hooped away effort drew the following scathing response. "For the love of all that's good and sensible in the world, what on earth has been allowed to happen here?

"A drastically ill-advised colour pairing, a total disregard for how they might match together, a pair of shorts you'd be horrified to wear alone in an isolated holiday home with only your immediate family for company. Real hall of shame stuff."

And Newcastle's new white-backed home short was similarly panned. "Stop upsetting everyone with your loan shark blue and insultingly unadorned back," read the Telegraph's verdict.

"The stripes on the front have been vandalised, the sponsor is reprehensible, the back looks like a bathroom. Football shirt as trolling mechanism."
