Specsavers troll Tottenham Hotspur over their awful new away kit which was released earlier this week, leaving fans baffled.
Spurs have got a huge amount to deal with right now, however not everything is about the transfer speculation on their top player Harry Kane.
They are also being mocked on social media by high street opticians Specsavers, who have thrown some shots at a Premier League club.
This all relates to the release of Tottenham’s new away kit which quite frankly looks like a puddle of petrol and has, to put it lightly, really divided football fans.
They asked their fanbase for a reaction on the kit, seeking just one word from the supporters, and that really is just asking for trouble.
Arguably the best response came from Specsavers who simply said “Should’ve,” which is in reference to their iconic catchphrase: “Should’ve gone to Specsavers.”

Tottenham said on their kit via the club website: “With a bold, vibrant look, the new kit puts future creators at the heart of its design, with an expressive print that represents collective creativity from local minds.
“The dark base of the jersey acts as the perfect canvas for the progressive design, with its vibrancy accentuated by blue trim detail and a Venom Green Nike Swoosh, Club crest and sponsor logos. The shirt is complemented by black shorts and socks.
“The kits that will be worn on the pitch, as well as the replica shirts available for supporters to buy, are constructed with 100 per cent recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles. This creates kits that helps to deliver peak performance with a lower impact on the environment.
“No other sport captures global attention like the beautiful game and we, along with Nike, see this as an opportunity to scale more sustainable solutions in order to help protect the future of sport.
“As part of their wider Move to Zero initiative – a journey towards zero carbon and zero waste – Nike are focused in scaling the usage of lower-carbon material alternatives. Recycled polyester reduces carbon emissions by up to 30 per cent compared to virgin polyester and, since 2010, Nike has been using this material to produce football kits.
“Tottenham Hotspur is equally dedicated to minimising the environmental impacts of its activities across all Club operations and was this year named the Premier League’s greenest club following a study carried out by BBC Sport and the UN-backed Sport Positive Summit.
“The 2021/22 Tottenham Hotspur Away Kit, along with selected items from the new Express Collection, are available to order now via Spurs Shops and online.”

@Dee86439453: What were they smoking?
@thespursweb: The bigger question is will the guy wearing it still be at the club this season?
@EddieLongbridge: Very very bad.
@slatera1987: It looks like when the car leaks petrol and it rains. Crikey who designed this! We are already a shitshow of a club!
@Trojan_Horse999: Absolutely the worst kit I’ve ever seen in my life. Dog shit and Spurs should sack Nike or the designer. Worse that the Arsenal or Man Utd kit in 1991
@ParkLaneBlock40: I’m beginning to think that, after two jabs, I’ve actually entered a different world.
@jimmytheyid84: That is horrendous
@MilbsThomas: Worst spurs shirt in my lifetime. Has nothing to do with the tradition of the club. Nike are the worst kit manufacturer we’ve had and I remember Pony.
@michaelco_lis: It would look good – at a rave – in a field – in the 90s.
@a_yessaa: No way even Specsavers are violating us 😭
@Archie_Tashjian: I trust the person that designed this no longer works for Nike. Appalling.
@MaGaTa76: The worst I have ever seen in over 40 years. It’s a failed secondary school science experiment.
@CLButler76: WTF is that?
@sinead_una: looks like the fucking doctor who theme tune
@davideWH: This is NOT a football shirt. It’s a beach shirt & a disgrace to the club & Nike. SHAMEFUL RUBBISH DESIGN!
@J_Roberts00: Looks like one of them watery oil puddles in the road
@Ben_Rosenthal: Will the players continue to play like they are on acid when wearing this because I certainly feel like I’m on something looking at it
@marissalordanic: Oil spill but make it fashion
@kadinhp: Eyesore 🤮
@bryanlehko: Looks like someone had an orgy on this one
@AbyssTalks: Can’t believe @duluxuk haven’t mentioned that it looks like an accident in a paint factory.
@mattyrei83: Looks like something you find in the bargain bin at sports direct! 🤢
