We can all agree on the best part of the football season, right?
No, it’s not the title race going down to the wire, nor the Champions League final. The East Anglia derby? Close, but way off. The pinnacle of any season takes place before a ball is even kicked; when every club reveal their new kits for the forthcoming campaign.
