Derby County have released their new home kit for the 2019/20 season.
And it is fair to say Umbro’s design for the Rams has divided supporters due to the bold patterns featured on the arms.
Inspired by the kit from the promotion-winning season of 1995/96, the kit has managed to reinvent a new intricate graphic that also showcases the iconic stanchions that adorn the skyline of Pride Park.
The unique design feature is placed on the sleeve to offer a different focal point of the home shirt, which also features the wording “EST 1884” in the club’s personal Baseball Ground typeface wording on the back of the neck.
Jonathan McCourt, Umbro’s UK Marketing Manager, said: “We’re really excited about Derby County’s new home kit.

With its 1990’s graphical feel, and referencing the 1995/96 season shirt which the fans will know so well, we hope that the new strip will be one the supporters can identify with given its roots whilst also creating new and lasting memories on and off the pitch.”
@mikeepritch Wow, time really flies. We're already at that time of year when I moan about Derby's new kit… Frankly it's impressive how many ways we find to muck up simple black and white. https://t.co/SgIKKdB0gE
Derby County made sure Leeds knew they were beaten.
In the Elland Road changing room following a brilliant 4-2 win, the players sang a song created by Leeds fans to mock manager Frank Lampard, which makes numerous references to the ‘spygate’ scandal that erupted earlier in the season.
And on Twitter, along with Derby fan and talkSPORT regular, Niall Horan, players laughed at their Championship rivals.
Mason Mount and Martyn Waghorn were among those who tweeted ‘I spy with my little eye something beginning with W’, while Horan tweeted United between him and his beloved Rams, they’d played more times at Wembley than them in the last 12 years!

After the 4-0 defeat at Aston Villa on Saturday, it was no surprise Derby made six changes for a game that saw skipper Richard Keogh make his 600th career club appearance.
Both teams had early openings, Wigan twice getting caught on the break from corners with Derby unable to take advantage although Harry Wilson fired over from just inside the area.
When Derby won a corner in the ninth minute, Bradley Johnson arrived late at the back post but his header was pushed out by Jamie Jones and Wigan scrambled the ball clear.
There was a scare for Derby when Wigan broke down the left and Malone was close to turning a cross into his own net but generally it was the home side asking the questions until the visitors landed a sucker punch in the 25th minute.
Malone lost the ball just outside the Wigan area and Michael Jacobs raced away to play in Massey who slide the ball through Scott Carson’s legs.
Derby could have conceded again four minutes later when Nathan Byrne’s superb cross from the right gave Leon Clarke a free header at the back post which he put wide.

Martyn Waghorn had a header easily saved in the 44th minute but Derby had to improve in the second half and it was no surprise when they made a double substitution in the 57th minute which immediately paid off.
Malone’s cross in the 62nd minute was behind Bennett but he span and hooked a shot from 12 yards over Jones and inside his left post.
Jacobs almost restored Wigan’s lead with a cross shot that fizzed just wide and after Duane Holmes was denied by Jones, Malone rescued Derby by clearing Nick Powell’s header off the line.
It was a big moment because Derby went ahead in the 78th minute when Malone showed quick reactions to turn in a Jayden Bogle shot that looked to be going wide.
Waghorn struck a post and although Wigan pressed hard, Derby’s defence held firm as they moved level on points with sixth place Bristol City.
