It may be a subjective thing and have very little to do with the actual football, but the release of a club’s home kit is still one which conjures up a lot of emotions.
On Tuesday evening the Toffees released their effort for the 2017/18 season, with Merseysiders such as Tom Davies, Ross Barkley and Leighton Baines included in what is a top quality promo video.

And while the production of the video is superb, the less said about Umbro’s attempt at a classic design the better.
Evertonians themselves will likely either love it or hate it, but judging by the initial reaction on Twitter it is the latter which is coming through the strongest.
Here are just some of the disgruntled responses.

@Everton what date is the away kit launch? I'm. Buying 3 kits this year and none of them will be this one.
