Tonight's match against Poland will be the debut of the new Nike away jersey for the MNT, following the unveiling of the white strip against Mexico on Feb. 6 in Houston. The U.S. will be decked out in colors that are officially called 'anthracite' (although we're guessing the official match report is going to say 'grey'), which is definitely an inventive step.

i'm a homer. I've liked every single US jersey they've played in since the 1994 World Cup. (You'll remember that in addition to the great red-white stripe kit were some pretty bad blue kits with white stars.) I like the home jersey's, I even kinda liked last years pinstripes that everyone else hated.

However, this new one is horrible. Anthracite? Guys, we're lucky we have three colors in our flag and that those are the only three colors associated with the USA. USE THOSE COLORS. Grey should not be worn by the USA.

The new uniforms don't look bad. They just don't make sense. USA is red, white, & blue. At least the clown outfits of '94 got that right.

I completely agree with mike, there.

They look really sharp, but they don't capture anything American. Red+White+Blue=Dark Grey? No, no, no. Maybe as a third kit, but our home and away kits should remind me of the Stars and Stripes.
