With the team bottom of the Premier League, pockets of fan revolt sprouting all around St. James' Park and manager Alan Pardew accusing his many and various detractors of succumbing to "mass hysteria," Newcastle United probably couldn't have picked a worse time to unveil a new kit.
Still, reveal a new kit is exactly what they have done -- with the club proudly showing off their latest third strip for 2014-15 on Thursday.
Beleaguered Newcastle boss Alan Pardew admits he will have to combat "mass hysteria" as he attempts to fight off a fans' revolt on Tyneside.
The 53-year-old is preparing for Saturday's Premier League clash with Hull at St James' Park against the background of a terrace rebellion with his critics having grown significantly in both number and volume following a disappointing end to the summer transfer window and a poor start to the season.
