The football season is finally upon us and Watford have finally decided to release their away kit (not that I've been waiting to publish this for weeks now - about time, lads).
It has been a difficult few months without our beloved beautiful game. Endless Twitter refreshing hoping to see that sought after signing, only to be met with more news on the record-breaking week-long heatwave rather than record-breaking transfers.
One thing that has kept us football fans busy (apart from the Women's World Cup, Copa America, Africa Cup of Nations and the rest)? Those good old football kit launches.
Disagree? @ Me.
20. Norwich City
Let's hope the Canaries manage to better those positions in next year's Premier League table.
Disclaimer: We don't hate Norwich, we just really don't like their kits. At all.
19. Aston Villa
Iconic is one word I suppose. Having hipsters model the kit does not make it any more appealing either.
Similar to above, without the hipsters. Three horrific betting sponsorships in a row is no coincidence.
Chelsea this low down? I can feel the furious tweets being typed. Collars on football kits, though? For me - absolutely not.
Why you would put a collar on the away kit and not the home one is beyond me. Looks like something you'd wear to (unsuccessfully) impress your Tinder date.
You've got to feel for Southampton with this one. It's actually a relatively decent shirt, but can somebody please explain what on God's green earth that horrendous sponsor is? Kit ruiner.
Liverpool seem to enjoy testing the waters when it comes to their away strips in recent times. Sometimes it pays off sometimes it doesn't. This one doesn't.
14. Tottenham Hotspur
It's just a bit, well, boring isn't it?
In an era where every club and their dog are trying to be 'dangerous' in their designs, Spurs are keeping it simple, maybe too simple.
It's different, cannot argue with that. but while there is a fat ANGRY BIRDS logo emblazoned on the sleeve, Everton shirts can not be taken seriously.
This kit is bringing all the nostalgia right now. What do you see when you look at this kit? Robbie Keane wheeling off and performing his iconic celebration of course.
Wait, what, it's not Spurs?
11. Brighton & Hove Albion
Similar to the (actual) Spurs kit with the simplistic design, this is simple but a lot more effective. Not enough black kits out there.
2019/20, the year the entire Premier League decided that betting sponsorships were a good idea.
Decent strip, though.
9. Newcastle United
Vast improvement on the home kit. Maybe Mike Ashley doesn't hate the Toon Army after all...
8. Manchester United
OFFICIAL: @ManUtd have released their new away kit for the upcoming 2019/20 season.— Squawka News (@SquawkaNews) July 12, 2019
"The savannah-toned aesthetic and intricate patterned design, take inspiration from the many mosaics that adorn the streets of Manchester’s creative district, the Northern Quarter." pic.twitter.com/kjvu8HTMIb
Spent far too long deliberating where to put this in the rankings. It's decent. Too much Chevrolet, though. Maybe United should have taken part in the #SaveOurShirt campaign...
7. Sheffield United

Away kit on sale now ⚪️
Decent first effort from the Premier League newcomers. Material looks fresh. Europa League finish? They'll take that in the new (real) campaign.
6. Wolverhampton Wanderers
An ever-improving team on the pitch and an ever-improving team off the pitch so it seems.
It's not the best in the list but it's far from the worst. Certainly fit for the mighty 2019 Premier League Asia Trophy Champions.
5. Crystal Palace
Only issue is that it's a bit of a BTEC version of the new Manchester City strip (sorry).
4. West Ham United
I was blowing bubbles when I saw this new West Ham kit - terrible pun, nice shirt.
Slick, simple, smart. New record signing Sebastien Haller looks well in to it, too.
3. Manchester City
When this kit was first released, I was convinced that there wouldn't be a shirt better within the 19/20 Premier League, but ultimately, this is one trophy the Citizens won't be winning this coming season.
It's still bloody stunning, though. #ThoseHaciendaVibezzz
2. Leicester City
Arsenal are invincible for the second time! Bet you didn't think you'd be hearing that for a while?
Okay, so they aren't invincible in the footballing sense but they've only gone and topped the charts for both best home and away kit heading into the 19/20 season and we all know what the most important accomplishment is here.
Fair play though Arsenal, unbelievable new strips. Helps when you've got fashion icon Hector Bellerin modelling, too.
