Tynesiders launch fog-coloured away strip.
Newcastle United unveiled their new away kit this morning.
The club released several images of the all-grey outfit on Twitter at 9am.
Fabricio Coloccini, Moussa Sissoko and Yoan Gouffran posed in the simple Puma v-neck shirt, which has sponsor Wonga crudely plastered across the chest.

Grey shirts have caused controversy in the past. In April 1996, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson ordered his players to change their kit at half-time, after blaming his side’s 3-0 deficit to Southampton on the poor visibility of their dull attire.
The kit in question was recently voted as the Red Devils’ worst of all time.
