Product Shill: Chelsea FC 2012/13 Kit Launch

YouTube Preview Image

Everyone keeps telling us that this video was made to launch Chelsea’s exciting new adidas home strip, which goes on sale on 10th May.

Honestly? We cannot fathom how anybody is supposed to concentrate on a bit of gold piping when this lot are posing their little hearts out.

And they say women are difficult to understand.

    How is it that PF Juan Mata speaks English better than players that have been at Chelsea longer? Well done Juan!

    Can I just say that I find a man's accent so sexy?! Lucky me…a video full of them. :D

  2. Clara says:

    Mata is adorable, Ivanovic is hot (despite the zit), and Petr Cech is SO DAMN HANDSOME.

  3. littlegreenpea says:

    David Luiz smiling was pretty great. As for Juan Mata, he seems like a great all-around guy. And Petr Cech looks like a completely different person without his helmet hat.

  4. NinaNoir says:

    Petr Cech. Since when has he been this HOT?!? Hot-diddly, the man is insanely attractive, with the height and the hair and the old school shirt. Hot damn! Probably his helmet has been bloking the view, which is rather lovely now that you actually see his face. Hot damn!

  5. Madridista says:

    Hey, the so called designers should be fired! They just took the Real Madrid shirt and dipped them in blue. RM even has the same gold stripes and overall look. And we got it first!

    • littlegreenpea says:

      well yeah. Mexico has the same uniform design as well. It isn't that they took it, a lot of teams have similar kits.

    • April says:

      Bayern also have the gold stripes, no? That and the gold adidas logo is all that is really in common. Your badge has its colors, your sponsor is in black, your gold is a more yellow gold, and your piping on the sleeves goes all the way around. There is also gold piping under the arms on the ribs on yours. Yours also has a traditional collar. They are all made by adidas, so it's surprising there are that many differences.

  6. Doles says:

    I love blue and gold combo! Also green and gold looks good on Cech. Overall design is simple and classy.
    Many mentioned that it looks like Real's kit, just in blue.

    As usual, I can't just choose one player…. torn between Mata and Lampsy. I bought unmarked kit for 11-12 because of that. I may have to go with unmarked one again… only I had enough blings to buy them all!!

    • IrishBlue says:

      Ah tis a hard decision yes! I've got Mata on my jersey from this season and Drogba from last seasons one. All my ones previous to that are unmarked. Dunno whether to stick with Juan or go for someone else.

  7. IrishBlue says:

    I like it! Haven't decided which number I'll be getting on the back yet though.

    All I know is that David Luiz just melted me at 2.09, that smile!

  8. Kristina says:

    I sat through the whole thing (oh I enjoyed it too, believe nothing else) and waited for David Luiz to say something in English, but nooo. Mata ey? What a guy. He's pretty good at English as well. The kits where alright I think, but I don't understand the obsession with gold.

    1:29 min – WOW! Freckles at its best! :D

  10. April says:

    I approve of this kit. Let's hope it helps these guys play as sharp as I think it looks!

  11. Miss Lampard says:

    Fernando's freckles are so HOT and YUMMY…and Lampsy's shoulders and body are so sexy with this kit..

  12. AnnMi says:

    freckles…1:29!!!! ; )

    Pretty cool. Reminds me of the Chelsea Centenary kit from the mid-naughties. More of the new shirt pix here if you're into kits – http://wp.me/pL6jh-8Te
