To be honest last year I was bothered by just how much we uses our third kit, especially when our away kit was :love:. So if this just means more use for our away kit then I'm good with it.
Yeah that did annoy me too, one of our nicest away kits for years and we actually chose not to wear it when we should have :(

Agree the numbers and lettering look ace. I'm 41 so I'll look like an absolute fuckwit, but quote tempted to get a player name

I've not been following the thread, so sorry if this point has been made, but why do we have purple kits? What is wrong with navy as the second or third choice kit? It's a subjective view as to whether it looks better but at least there is some rationale to it with navy being part of our home kit. Purple? Why?

We've had a relatively long history of purple kits over the years. I usually really like them tbh. Always a fan of our dark navy kits and purple kits, and less so of the yellow and sky blue ones. I do agree though that it seems a little weird to be having a dark navy blue and a purple in the same year though. Can't remember that ever happening before.

Does anyone have any insight on the font of the numbers for the 3rd kit?

I assumed this was a new font for us for Champions League play, but we used the same font yesterday as we used last year. So is this font only for when use the 3rd kit in Champions League (guessing all Nike CL teams will have this font on their 3rd kit in the CL)? The CL must not have rules saying fonts must be the same across all teams kits?

So I sent an email to the club (for the second time) a couple of weeks ago asking when the away elite shirt would be restocked. I finally got an answer yesterday. It's sold out, and "the line has now been discontinued". The answer was ended with a tip about the new third shirt.
Is it just me or is this a bit strange? The shirt sold out after a few weeks in to the season and is now gone forever? Is this a common Nike thing?
