Manchester City started the weekend off with a surprising 1-0 victory over league-leading Chelsea at Eastlands. City wore their fine home kits, putting the Blues in their black and orange Halloween kits.

The biggest surprise of the weekend came when West Bromich Albion won 3-2 at Arsenal at the Emriates. The Gunners were of course in their famous red and whites, so the Baggies were forced to make a slight change to their outfit. Wearing alternate navy socks, the Baggies looked even better than usual. This space would love to see Albion make that change permanent.

Blackburn Rovers won 2-1 away to Blackpool on Saturday at Bloomfield Road. The homestanding Seasiders were done in by an own-goal and a 90th minute winner by Rovers while wearing their standard orange and white home kits. Rovers weren’t forced to make any changes to their outstanding regular kit.

West Ham United got their first win of the season, 1-0 against Tottenham Hotspur at the Boleyn Ground. The Hammers donned their home kits, forcing Spurs to wear alternate navy socks.

Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic drew nil-nil at St. Andrews. Brum wore their home kits and Wigan their all-black change version.

Fulham and Everton also drew nil-nil on Saturday. The Cottagers wore their new home kits with Everton wearing alternate blue socks for contrasting purposes.

Liverpool and Sunderland drew 2-2 at Anfield Road. The Reds wore their traditional kits while the Black Cats debuted their stone and claret change kits.

Sunday saw Aston Villa win their first game under new manager Gérard Houllier, 2-1 away to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Both sides wore their standard kits.

Bolton Wanderers got a home draw against Manchester United at the Reebok, 2-2. Both clubs were in their usual outfits.

And the weekend was rounded out with a Stoke City 2-1 away victory over Newcastle United, thanks to a late James Perch own-goal at St. James’ Park. Both clubs wore their standard kits.

  2. Thanks for the comment Jim! I agree, especially about West Brom. That completes their look so much better than the plain white socks with the standard kit. For Spurs I’d rather see them wear the blue socks with the white shorts (I think they’ve done the white shorts in Europe).

  3. good to see Mr. “5&1″/”I’d wear that” over here.
    Mao – has every team except Blackpool & Wolves worn both home and change kits so far this season?

  4. Actually, Blackpool have worn their change shirts at least (round 2). Newcastle have not yet worn their blue change kits, though they did wear their all-white third kits in round 3. Likewise, Birmingham City, who wore their red third kits in round 5, have not worn their change kits yet. Manchester United have not worn their change kits in the Premier League yet, though I think they did in the Carling Cup? And Stoke City have not brought out their navy change versions in the league. But again, maybe in the League Cup.

  5. I was looking back at pics at some of Blackpool’s games against Boro, Nottingham Forest, etc. and they usually wear white away. Wolves, though, wear their home kits when away at Man U, Liverpool, Arsenal, etc. I guess amber is more a contrast to red than tangerine is. So we’ll probably see Blackpool’s change kits a few more times (and maybe their third?), but may only see Wolves black shirt when they go to Blackpool. I’m also looking forward to Fulham’s green 3rd kit- maybe at Stoke or Sunderland. Okay, enough of my uni rambling…
