Next seasons kit


Recommended Posts

Take the badge off those shirts and they could belong to a Conference side and the way we have been playing lately a neutral could be excused for thinking the same.

Bland indifferent shirts that scream the designer hasn't an original thought in his head. The shirts are part of the promotion of a multi million pound business and instead they look like something found on a North Ormesby market stall.

We should just go back to this, but change the year to 1876  

The thing is I'm not bothered about it.  I don't believe that the person who said it really meant it, and I doubt he was looking to really offend me with it, so I wouldn't report it or him.  A bit lik

I quite like that home shirt, though it's a pretty close replica of the 1998-99 shirt. The chevrons, collar and armpit slashes are different, but the rest is basically a photocopy. I love the central badge positioning (as I did twenty years ago!), but it's hardly a 'wow' design, and it doesn't feature the white band which I think could (and arguably should) become part of our club's identity.

Well to be fair they are just ideas put together by fans - either using some kit design website or art software. They probably weren't intended to be original. I'm guessing whoever did them was just trying to recreate their "perfect" kit, using bits and pieces of other designs.

I've often looked at kits and thought, "if only they borrowed a bit from another design they'd be perfect".

Also, it gets increasingly difficult to be original over time, (rather like the music industry), as more and more designs are put out there.

For the record I'm not totally sold on either, but I have seen worse...

I'd really love us to go back to the 2006-07 design. It has the white chest band (with gold trim - nice touch) and another across the sleeves and shoulders. Nothing fancy or odd-looking. Just a simple, classy design IMO.

I'd be right behind something that's a nod to the old 74/75 kit. That was a classy, white band kit.

Would love to have a white band with simple lion (not the full badge) in, with no sponsor. 

Sadly the sponsor has to go somewhere and it would look wierd under the white band.

True... Sponsors so often ruin kits.

It can be done with good incorporation. Newcastle (sadly) had some canny designs which worked with the sponsor logo as opposed to it just being slopped in the middle. The 93/94 McEwans home shirt springs to mind, as does the 97/98 Newky Brown away shirt.

Loved this years shirt. Hopefully more of the same with a few nice tweaks to it (transporter in background or is it just a general shirt pattern?)

    • The Connolly discussion is a little bit unfair to the lad. It's two games and let's be fair boro have been a little of the pace even if we did get last minute winner in one of them. Give him some more minutes and games before we write off... the being said would like to see barragon start
    • Boro have pretty much always followed the guidelines as they are so if they can drop the restrictions then they probably will. I would think it would be even more likely that those restrictions get dropped after the last game where, depending on when you turned up and what turnstile you were at, you may or may not get your pass checked and mask guidelines may not have been spoken about. We spoke to the club about this at the last MSF meeting and they were saying how they'd have to reinforce the guidelines to their stewards after some varied experiences from different reps in the group. Me personally, I turned up and the lass there almost looked shocked when I lifted up my phone with the pass on to show her. Think most reps reported no issues but one of those things where it's little good having the rules to try and prevent the spread of a virus if the odd steward here and there doesn't bother. If the guidelines are changing though then that stuff probably doesn't matter. Seems doubtful they'd continue anyway, like you said.
