Sometimes, all I have a small point to make.
Ramble of the Day
Seeing last week’s pictures of Nuno Espírto Santo and Vicky Jepson made me wonder if they were wearing new training tops or if I forgot what last year’s training tops looked like. It turns out they’re new, and they’re continuing this club’s tradition of having some pretty nice training tops.
It definitely feels familiar, but it almost doesn’t matter. Nike’s been rotating through a very nice collection of colors for training gear. I’m a fan of the blue paired with that yellow. Looking at the whole collection on Spurs’ website, the drill top is definitely the best of the available items. It takes some vibrant colors and nicely packages them in a minimalist template.
tl;dr: I like the colors of this season’s training kits.
