Doncaster Rovers - Home and Away
Crystal Palace - Home
The new Crystal Palace has a touch of Barcelona 2010/11 about it, and I rather like it. The kit is bespoke with the club asking fans to participated in the design of the shirt. Rather than a kit manufacture, the shirt has "Founded 1905" elegantly stitched opposite the club crest. The away kit is even more eye catching, taking on the same design with a bright yellow body, blue stripes and red trim. Still undecided if I like it though.
Peterborough United - Away
Rotherham United - Home
I wouldn't say the design of the Rotherham kit is anything too special (although it is nicer than other Puma kits I've seen produced for the new season), but this kit is different. You may notice below the Puma logo is a crest. This is the coat of arms for the city of Rotherham, and sits proudly opposite the club badge. This is why I've included it in my top 5, as I think its an original idea which shows how important football clubs can be to cities and communities.
Another notably mention is Carlisle United's Fila kit for the new 2012/13, with a very smart looking diagonal red strip running through the usual blue body.
Coventry City - Home and Away
Coventry have done something special here and produced two equally disgusting kits. Both have the exact same design (which is a little bit lazy) with the colours changed. I think both kits kits look quite old fashioned, and I the only good thing I can say about the away kit is that, at least its not as bad as this old Norwich number. Not sure that's a compliment though. Not sure we'll be seeing many of these replica kits at the Ricoh next season (and that's not just because they don't have many fans).
Millwall Home and Away
Millwall have done a double whammy too, which two pretty ugly kits. Firstly, I'm not a fan of Macron as a kit manufacturer at all - just look at Aston Villa's new goalkeeping kit. That's enough to put anyone off. The sleeves look like a child's attempt to draw a turtle shell. Anyway, back to Millwall. I'm not a fan of collared shirts either, so this was always going to be tough for me to like. That white quadrant on the home kit just looks pointless. What else can I say? The away shirt isn't quite as horrible? Let's move on...

Thanks for reading. If you like you can vote on the poll to the left which you think are the best and worst of those mentioned.
I would also like to recommend two websites, which helped me compile this piece.
The first is Football Kit News, which is frequently posting new photos and updates of the 2012/13 season kits for teams across the world.
The second is Historical Kits, a website with sketches of club's kits from when they were formed to modern day. Its really interesting, and well worth a look.
As always, I don't own any of the images. They are for entertainment purposes only.
