Loads of Everton supporters have been reacting on social media, after The Toffees Blue suggested the club are planning to reveal our 2019/20 Umbro third kit on Friday, August 23.
But like with the home, away and goalkeeper shirts, fans have been left underwhelmed by the English sportswear manufacturers latest design, with members of the Goodison Park faithful deeming their latest offering ‘disappointing’ and sharing hope that the supposedly leaked photo had shown the jersey in poor light.
The image shared by The Toffees Blue is not a recently surfaced photo, either – unfortunately for those left dissatisfied – as Brian Li, an Everton supporter based in Hong Kong, had shared the leak back in July and again at the start of August.
While we have our first look at the Coral Away Kit, I have also been sent a ‘leaked’ image of what could be our 3rd Strip for the 2019-20 Season. Thoughts? #EFC #COYB #ThirdKit #3rdKit @EvertonNewsFeed @grandoldteam @ToffeeTVEFC @RBMersey @Evertonthat_ @Footy_Headlines pic.twitter.com/5lHKcPDECm

Their pictures showed a dark navy design, bordering on black, with purple and lilac accents and trim used for club and sponsor badging, as well as a small detailing on the inner-element of the neckline.
However, a later upload suggested the accents and trim may turn out to be a lighter shade of blue than used for the base of the kit, with a small ‘EFC’ graphic added on the back of the neck.
Got hold of a 2019/20 Third Kit myself so here are some clearer pics. Would’ve been okay to be featured against Palace today if it wasn’t for the match officials? COYB @grandoldteam @EvertonNewsFeed @Evertonthat_ @Footy_Headlines pic.twitter.com/nMo7Rcieox

It is a much cleaner design than our home kit, which features a busy upper element, intended to reflect the iconic criss-cross steelwork of the upper-tier of the Bullens Road stand at Goodison Park.
Many Everton supporters are pessimistic by the potential inbound reveal, though…
Looks like the colour has run onto the white sponsor and badge…. We had to wait how long for this…. very plain !!!

Feel like all the shirts this season are disappointing and this ones no different! It’s like Umbro don’t care, need to get rid

Is that it ?

Is this definitely it? I’d have hoped for a bit more imagination tbh

Here’s to hoping that is just a bad picture

That’s quite a disappointment after the delight of last season’s 3rd kit
