Moenchengladbach The current shirt was a mixture of different eras, the season was mixed as much as the design. The new look of Borussia Mönchengladbach is clearer and more linear. When the shirt will be officially unveiled and when it will be available.
It is a good tradition that Borussia’s last home game is a trendy preview of the new season. Around 1899 Hoffenheim on Saturday (3:30 pm, Sky) Gladbach will wear his next house suit for the first time: a white jersey with a vertical black and green stripe in the center. It is interrupted by the writing of the main sponsor. Shorts and socks are white. The design quotes the Gladbach tradition, but at the same time it is a completely new look.
The double black and green stripe adorned the Borussia shirts of the years 1971 to 1973, however it was positioned to the right of the spectator, the diamond was positioned at the top. The uniform represents, among other things, the famous shotgun throwing match against Inter. In preparation, the always well-informed portal “Footy Headlines” had, for once, guessed incorrectly when it showed a version that exactly reproduced this shirt. Soon after, “Footy Headlines” also leaked the current version. Our editors can confirm this. However, Borussia will officially unveil the kit only on Saturday morning, when it will be immediately available to the fans.
“It’s a variation of the famous 1971 jersey with the same color placement of the vertical stripe now in the center instead of the left side as before. There was already a new edition with Lotto, so I would have been surprised if Puma had done so. new, ”jersey expert Steve Appenowitz told our editorial team. He described this season’s shirt as a mix of Borussia’s different eras and sees the unstable season reflected in it. “After the mess of the 70s / 80s / 90s of the current season, this new home kit is a step forward,” said Appenowitz.
The current season is high and low, for the epochal 5-0 victory against FC Bayern, but above all for the too many bitter defeats, including the historic 0-6 at home against SC Freiburg, is synonymous with constant agitation, for incompleteness, for instability, for the loss of the aura of unanimity that has lasted for more than a decade, for a mix that did not fit.
In the new season, Borussia wants to be clear and clear again, in terms of sports and content, just like the new shirt. “The shirt makes a neat and good impression when it is laid out in the middle and divided by the flock of sponsors,” says Appenowitz. He remembers the great 70s, but it’s a version that never existed as a player’s shirt. However, there is a reference with a vertical central stripe: Wolfgang Kleff’s legendary goalkeeper jersey. Interpretive approach: Borussia urgently need to reduce the number of goals conceded after two seasons with open doors. This fits the reference to the strongman behind the Torfabrik.
The new shirt has style, it is based on the history of the club, on the times of the legendary Fohlenelf, but it is a version that exists only in the present. On the “Footy Headlines” portal, it is currently rated as the best by users of all new outfits known in Europe. Kit expert Appenowitz also likes it, but it is not his favorite in the modern Puma era that started in 2018. At first glance I don’t think it comes close to the first Puma jersey after the return and to the simple black and white jersey of the Champions League season 2020/21 . As always, it’s a matter of taste, “he says.
