And I didn't even hate the pink shirt, just didn't love it. The home shirt looks almost identical to what they wore two years ago. So I may skip buying one, but I'll definitely pick up a black, shorts, and maybe a jacket when I visit in August.
My only gripe is that they allow tmn's logo to be a total distraction to the shirt. It's big and looks like a bad photoshop. The Sagres on the back or the meo on the black is how a sponsor should be. I wouldn't be surprised if they allowed that without raising the point that it should be a little more subdued.
FYI: Now that the '09 shirts are discontinued, you can find good bargains on Ebay. I just order a home longsleeve (I know how much Pila
them) with Nuno Gomes' name and number for $40 delivered. It will take a few weeks to arrive, but it's worth the wait for an authentic that would cost over $100 brand new.
