The new season has been underway for a few weeks now, and the club is not performing to all of our expectations. Seeing as United haven’t made any high profile signings this summer and the club’s debt keeps increasing, we thought it was fitting to talk about the green and gold campaign, as well as some options of t-shirts you can buy that will help the cause. The topic of football shirts is quite a stingy topic at the moment, with many supporters choosing to boycott the official club kits and but retro Newton Heath kits or green and gold shirts.
The history of Manchester United spans all the way back to 1892, when the club did not wear the now famous red kits, and was not called Manchester United. The club was named Newton Heath and the colours were green and gold, a canary gold which reminds one of today’s Norwich colours. From this kit came the inspiration for the movement as well as the shirts around the movement. Here are the best Manchester United Shirts with the Green and Gold theme:
Love United Hate Glazer Shirt
The Republik of Mancunia have designed some shirts to support the movement. The best one of the protest shirts is this “Love United Hate Glazer Shirt” which also makes a very bold statement. It’s one of the most appealing shirts related to the movement and really makes the point, even if it’s in red and black.
Green & Gold Simple Type Tee
Another product of the Republik of Mancunia, this simple type t-shirt gets right to the point of the message for the movement, displaying the green and gold slogan in simple font. It’s a nice shirt for those looking to get something simple and cheap in support of the movement. You can get yours here: BUY.
Newton Heath Love United Hate Glazer Shirt
A pretty successful design from TshirtsUnited. This shirt has the Newton Heath history combined with the Love United Hate Glazer movement. The fist shows solidarity to the movement. Click the image above to order yours today. I’m not sure if any proceeds are donated to M.U.S.T. following the purchase of this shirt.
Green and Gold Until the Club is Sold Shirt
This United supporter made some of his own Green and Gold shirts to show his dislike for the direction the club is moving. The first of the collection is the “Green & Gold Till The Club Is Sold One Love Shirt.” The designer will donate 50% of proceeds to M.U.S.T. in support of their movement. Click on the image or the link above to buy it. It only costs 16 quid for a limited time.
The Definition of Malcom Glazer Shirt
This shirt sums up the feelings of most Manchester United supporters, showing the sentiments towards Malcom Glazer. You can get the “Definition of Malcom Glazer Shirt” and the designer will donate 50% of proceeds to M.U.S.T. in support of their efforts.
The Newton Heath Shirt
You can buy the classic Newton Heath shirt as well, from TOFFS, but it’s quite pricy. If you still want to show your support and get back to the roots of the club, this “Newton Heath Football Club Shirt” could do the job. Like the other shirts, 50% of proceeds will be donated to M.U.S.T. and it costs only 16 pounds.
These are the best alternatives to the official merchandise this season. Do you know others that are better or perhaps help the cause more than these? What do you think of the designs and the movement in general, do you support the green and gold campaign?
