Tottenham fans have plenty to look foward to next season. 

The club are back in the Champions League, and with plenty of young talent in their squad, they could well even be part of another Premier League title race.

However, there is one issue which is already dividing fans, the ever-sensitive issue of the new kit.

Not impressed

Spurs have released their three 2016/2017 kits, and while the first two seem to have gone down reasonably well, Twitter has reacted with horror at the sight of the third, which is already being dubbed a monstrosity. 

Kits are always guaranteed to divide opinion, but especially when, as some fans were quick to point out, they appear to resemble a Caramac bar. 

Of course, there were those who were quick to leap to the defence of the alternative away kit, which could be used primarily in the Champions League, but the resounding feeling was one of sheer disgust. 

Here's the kit in question: 

Fans react

It seems not too many will be rushing out to spend their hard-earned cash on it, not least because it costs £55, with the kids' version at £42. 

Cue this reaction: 

And there was one unfortunate comparison that just kept popping up: 

The club have explained, via their official website, that the gold is based on the cockerel on top of White Hart Lane. It was expected that the kits would pay tribute in some way to the stadium in its final year, but probably not like this. 

There has been some speculation that the kits are hoping to appeal to NFL fans, as Spurs have a partnership with the American sport and will be hosting games at their new stadium in 2017/2018. 

Let's hope it works, because it definitely isn't appealing to anyone on this side of the water. Maybe it's a grower.
