Kit question - Umbro

Probably one for our Glasgow-based Kit Professor, but I'll open this up to the floor....

How come so many teams this year have Umbro kits? Umbro used to do loads but have been slowly edged out of the market over the years. When Celtic and Chelsea dumped them, I think that left Everton as about the only top team still wearing Umbro.

Now loads of clubs are wearing Umbro - Blackburn, the Spammers, Sunderland, Wigan, Birmingham, Rangers, WBA and of course the Iraqi national side :rolleyes: .

Any reason behind this renaissance?
