Golden cockerel is fine, but golden cockerel with white sponsor's logo isn't so good. All our kits look the best when they're are only two colours used. The introduction of a third always makes it look messier.

Don't like the red on the white shirt but that's the sponsors colour choice. Would prefer that the same colour as the shorts too.

I think it was abundantly clear that the white, navy, red, and yellow shirts from last year did not sell well at all, so if this leak is genuine then I'm very surprised that UA is dabbling in attempting something similar again. Maybe the gold would look better than the yellow featured on that abhorrent home kit from last year, but nonetheless it would be a thin line to walk.

They always do it. Less is more you fuckwits. There always has to be a busy little motif or pattern or random as fuck swishes or swooshes or blob of neon green or other random colour combos for no good reason on an otherwise nice shirt.

We really need the experimental Avant-garde theatrical industry to pick up again. Get all of the costume designers back in their natural habitat and away from kit manufacturers.

That said, chances of those pics being genuine are slim. Maybe they are but even if not, we'll have something that could be decent ruined for bugger all reason. It's like it's a clause in the contracts they sign with clubs. "Don't worry, well produce at least one kit that will cause new-borns to reflexively claw their own eyes out. Promise."

Just no more sashes. We are not a Sarf American club.

Its quite simple. Do this and reverse the colour for the home kit. boom

The AIA ruins the shirts...if they are accurate leaks. I know it has to be there but surely a gold sponsor logo to match the gold cockerel works better. The less we say about the red on the home the better as well, but we've been saying that for 3 seasons now.

Yes. I'm probably in the minority but red doesn't bother me at all. Just another colour and the little merchandise campaign the club had a few years back seemed a little silly tbh. As a colour though it just isn't naturally suited to us as a club. White and navy combo doesn't lend itself to such a vibrant colour. It's jarring.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to bake a quiche, and no amount of hetero-normative oppression will change that..

Just be grateful the AIA logo isn't fabulous orange on the away shirt. You know, because colours!

How did you jump to the conclusion these kits will be like last years?

Collared shirts? What are we going to a dinner party???
Pah. Just make the shorts stupidly long and baggy. With the 4-in-1 hairstyles many footballers have now, all we'd need is a little brylcreem and then comb their barnets into a middle parting and it'll be like the 1920's all over again.

I got some brylcreem the other day.
