Kitted Out: Colour Them Bad?

What’s Wojciech upset about? Has he just realised that he will spend the next season dressed in pink, despite protesting in the most vociferous manner possible when the idea was mooted last time around?
Or is he just entering into the spirit of things now his colleagues have gone all emo for their new away shirt? To be fair, none of them look happy about it.
We’ll look forward to that one with interest. But in the meantime, it may surprise you to learn that pink n’purple are not the most shocking colours to appear on a kit release this week.
See the awkward, uncomfortable expression on Rodrigo Palacio’s face here? He’s right to be nervous. He could be set upon by a gang of angry Ultras at any moment.
A section of overly intense Inter Milan fans are seriously peeved that the players will be showing up to their away fixtures in a red shirt for the 2012/13 season. For those of you who don’t follow Italian football (you do know what you’re missing, don’t you?), Inter’s traditional colours are blue and black, while their arch city rivals AC Milan have dibs on the red.
Luckily, instead of taking their anger out on innocent players like Roddy, they’ve written to club prez Massimo Moratti to calmly explain exactly why they they will not be purchasing the new colour blocking option.
Good luck, boys n’girls. Cardiff fans tried that when the owners decided to swap up the club’s colour scheme from the traditional blue to red. Guess what colour they’ll be playing in next season?
