The camouflage trend officially died on July 4, 2011.
No, Mark McNairy hasn’t gone overboard with an audacious assault on traditional English footwear.*
Instead, Everton FC has chosen to dress the club’s American goalkeeper – Tim Howard – in this number for the 2011/2012 home stand. He certainly won’t blend into the teams bright blue strip, nor is he likely to match anyone in the opposing side. Everton has posted the original brief for the new home kit here. Note that there is no mention of or directive given for the goalies garb. Let this be a lesson to all sporting franchises – a #fail only equaled by Minnesotans agreeing that “Wild” is a decent name for a hockey team.
*Only joking McNairy. We love you.
