I know I’m an old curmudgeon, but describing the kit as ‘new and special,’ fills me with dread.
Is it made of recycled crisp packets?
I'm still a bit annoyed tbh, last seasons kit was pretty near perfect in my opinion
So, sad to say I'm probably not going to like the new one before I've even seen it, which is a bit stupid really
I am right there with you. That being said, as long as they do not mess with the quarters I can live with it. Similarly to @floyd above, I have that nagging concern that it will be something too experimental, like "In normal sun, the kit looks like a pink commercial for Louisiana tourism, but when the sun hits the right point in the sky, the quarters become visible in a holographic manner."
You're not an old curmud........ah, yeah, fair enough
I like being ITK. (for a few minutes at least)
at least Why No New Kit Supplier?? has been answered early.
Fun fact: Hummel is the German word for bumblebee (it took me far too long to work out that's what their logo is).
That’s a real coup.
For Hummel? Definitely.
Very nice. Hope we have a yellow and black away kit
Hopefully we don’t get stung by late deliveries again.
The pedant that Internet forums require me to be needs to tell you it's also the Danish translation, as they're Danish.
I think their UK supplier went bust, so I guess we'll deal with them directly.
I just remember those awful 80s kits of Villa and Southampton Etc. Exactly the same design just different colours 😐 Im sure they have come a long way since then though
They are, but that is the German word - they were founded in Hamburg!
The designs I've seen on their website are pretty bland. They better get busy with something special for us ...
Black and yellow is a better combination.
This is the excellent news. If they get it wrong it will be a real shame given how good so many of their current kits are.
I'm not sure whats worse, knowing who our supplier is without any samples / photos or Pete & James Turner talking about how good the kit is and that it looks stunning......
Chevron mania explodes!
I would take plain quarters with dark blue chevrons on the light blue sleeve and light blue chevrons on the dark blue sleeve. I have a feeling that will do more than this - some subliminal pattern or whatever - but I would be fine with the chevrons providing the unique aspect.
The same kit manufacturer as Nuneaton Griff. What a time to be alive!
those were both magnificent kits
The Denmark World Cup 1986 one of the greatest kits of all time
Agreed! I am now imagining that as blue quarters instead of red halves. Make it so!
Oh Eric its a matter of personal taste. To busy on my eyes mate
Here’s last seasons offerings.
And there was me thinking it was a cartoon version of The League of Gentlemen's Herr Lipp
I quite like these in the right colours for change kit and home kit.
