Great that there are stripes on the back again.

The style of the numbers is awful, I realise that this is out of the clubs hands, and it is for MIND.

It doesn't affect me as I don't buy replica shirts, and as I've said before when the players are wearing it you don't notice.

That's an odd way of saying "sorry, you got me, I was wrong on that one"?
I was highlighting that colour combos (socks in this case) have been altered in the past by a myriad number of sides, arguable if it was necessarily done to aid 'visual ID' as the stats don't really back it up either way.

Mentioned Gullit as he had a prediliction for white socks (probably harks back to his PSV and AC Milan days) which I think he was trying to equate with success(?). He mentioned this in a TV interview when he got the Chelsea gig and upset Big Al when he changed their socks to white a few yrs later. My mistake was not to 'fact check' my original post but I'm not going to apologise as the over-arching point was that coaches do change home/away colours to aid performance and it's been going on for quite a while.

Looks like a few clubs have done the same over the past few yrs (Arsenal, Villa, Hammers, etc).

Too old to be buying replica kits anyway but if I was would rather have the option not to have adverts for financial companies on the sleeve.

Putting it through the washing machine twice will deal with that ;)

That Barcelona third kit would do the trick.

Away at Luton could be interesting. On tv yesterday they seemed to be wearing a dark orange (almost red) top with black shorts. Might need the blue kit from last year for that one.

The set of training kit, is hard on the eye; the home kit is safe; the away kit is drab, gloomy, with tentative pin-thin red accents and an odd-textured trunk.

Mrs W ordered me the training shorts which arrived yesterday. Bit disappointed in them really, very thin material and the pockets are very small and the drawstrings around the waist are very short .... the Adidas training shorts were so much better (n)

Not sure where to post this....but relates to new kit.

My boys were given club shop vouchers back in Feb/Mar as birthday gifts......but can only be used in the stadium shop. Then the world went Pete Tong and we’ve not been back to GP since Sheffield Wednesday. And the stadium shop is probably now being dismantled.

There’s no option to use these vouchers online. And who knows when we’ll get to LR and whether I’ll be able to use the vouchers in the proposed retail outlets.

Any advice?
There was boxes piled up in the doorway when I went passed yesterday.

Loving the 'Shop by Player' page on the official website, looks like the Soccer Stars in Action stickers I started collecting circa 1970.

Yes> I emailed the club shop about this last month as I also have some gift vouchers to use. Chris, who works there, wrote back to me to say while they can't be used online, if you send them in the post and say which items you want to buy, they can then use the vouchers as payment.

That was when Griffin Park was still the address to use - I'm sure this will still apply, although not now sure where they should be sent.

Here’s a neat idea from Bristol, a 3rd shirt with all the names of the 5300 or so supporters who “helped during the pandemic” - Bees could do the same for those who choose option 1?

Bristol City 3rd kit

or just automatically insert the names of the premium season ticket buyers because you know, money
They must be miniscule, or the shirt huge.

The letters would be very small, like the one‘s on the limited edition FC Isle of Man shirt that lists it’s original supporters

Question - Why have a training kit? Why not train in the kit you are going to play in for the next match? Small margins & incremental gains?

So... are we getting a third shirt? Anyone heard anything? Bob Oteng's tweets seem to suggest we might and presumably we need something for Bournemouth away... (unless we wear last season's blue shirt)

I suspect if they do it'd be a light coloured shirt for some reason if they can't wear the grey.

Yes, all Premier League teams have to have 3 shirts so we had to get it designed and produced by Umbro just in case.

People won‘t buy two first team tops but they might be one first team top and a training top....

Because we are not pikies and the first team kit would be wrecked if you wore it 7 days a week and washed it every day.

I'd just be happy to get the two shirts I ordered a month ago, granted one has printing, but a month?
Same here, I've been waiting 5 weeks now. The constant nagging from my daughter is getting on my nerves 😀. Last football training for her tonight before half term. Maybe she'll get it before the end of the season!

If you haven't received your shirt definitely email. Mine was sat there at the despatch office not being processed. Emailed enquiries email and they sent it special delivery and I got it the next day

So, why not design training kits that looks like the home & away kit?

Its all to do with branding, marketing and sales. Why sell a training top that looks like the actual kit, when people may buy more than one item.

In terms of the small gains, I understand your point, but I suspect the very marginal gain you would get on the pitch would be offset off it by selling less products. Anyway, the wearing of kit in training probably doesn't have much of an impact on where Raya positions himself for free kicks! :owusu:
