I consider us one of the lucky ones! Our adidas kits in the past weren't awful but have you actually seen the latest adidas kits? Take Chelseas from this season. Breast plates, a zip, and they can't even get the 3 stripes to join up! Then look at some more recent ones. Saturn Moscow for example. Its like they've taken the shoulders of one kit and put it on top of another. The shades of blue dont even match up. Dont even get me started on the bicycle tops!
If we EVER go Adidas (and I pray we don't) I assure you that it wont look like the above. Unfortunately.
I'm dreading to see what our new lit will look like. Why cant we ever get a big brand kit maker that will easily help sell more shirts than names like Macron or Pony. Big teams have big names so choosing Macron is saying we're not a biggish team. Surely they could've come up with a deal to use a major sports company to make our kit...
Ok MW FROM WIDEOPEN....From the top of your head, name me one top 10 team that uses a small name branded kit then? Burnley and Brough are hardly top 10. Well maybe top 10 Championship. Also, name me one kit maker that in your life time that has grown to be a major sports brand and kit maker. Pony? Bukta? Scoreline? Where are this makers who we have used now? These were also our worst kits we've had and being a bit superstitious hear, they were times when we were always fighting relegation.
Ironbolt.... If this Macron kit turns out to be better looking then out Umbro kit from season 07/08, i will eat the shorts. Also.. I'll be suprise if we will stick with them for more than 2 seasons.
It doesn't matter what the brand is at all. They still make some nasty kits, in the same way that so called smaller brand names make some nice kits. I could name you numerous kits made by the so called big brands that are disgusting. New Liverpool shirt, last Chesea shirt, last and even the current Spuds shirt, Saturn Moscow, any Kappa shirt with those massive things on the shoulders, australia template our last home shirt.
And besides, we have no money to pay for the crap that adidas would give us so getting a cheaper manufacturer who thinks we are the key to them breaking into the Premier league means they will go all out to make a nice good quality kit. Our last adidas kits weren't amazing either.
Fila weren't massive and they made our best kits ever.
Well I think I would rather have Chelsea, Liverpool, Sp**s old kits instead of out new one even if i havent seen it yet. Most big name clubs use big brand names and its not a case of WHU having to go and buy the kit. The kit makers offer it to us. Kit makers sponsers the clubs, not the other way round. You wouldnt see The Champions League being sponsered by Kia or Skoda would you. Or you wouldnt see Man U wearing kits made by a no name brand in this day and age. At the mo, i'm watching Andy Murray at Wimbledon and when he first came out, he was wearing Fred Perry I think, but now he's more sellable, he's sponsored by Adidas. I can go on and on telling you's that big major clubs only use big branded names.
Fila were and still are a lot bigger name than Macoroni/Macron are.
I love this shirt, used to have an original claret adidas shirt with light blue stripes. People asked me where i got it from, this is the closest thing tp it and it looks better. Its about time we had a better kit than villa!
