Lime Green Crap

Postby City Slicker » Wed Sep 13, 2017 11:38 am

I don't know if it might be a jinx but why play in it when we don't need to :banghead: If we have to keep it there's plenty of opportunities to use it at places like Birmingham, Reading, QPR, Millwall, Wednesday, Ipswich etc. What's wrong in playing in our first colours whenever we can? :roll:

Just wondering if green kit could be like the Man Utd grey kit ie. hard to pick out players should use blue shorts,socks with it and white shorts,socks with the blue shirts.Not using this as reason for losing as NW said to many players not up for it and poor refereeing.

I agree, I thought we should have been playing in blue last night.
They attack family stands, they sing songs about hillsborough, they attack disabled chelsea supporters and they do nazi salutes. The jacks, they're the scum of the earth

I don't think that matters. No doubt Adidas want to sell both kits. They know people will buy the home but the more we wear the away the more people will see it and want to buy it.
My thoughts on the re-branding??

But we've had a big launch and plugged it on the City Store. If people wanted to buy it they would have. I can't see joe public watching Sky Sports thinking 'I'd buy that Cardiff top, it's fantastic'

Only City fans would want it, and we know where to buy it so does it matter how many times in a season we wear it? Ridiculous if that's what Adidas want.

I agree, I think your point about players struggling to pick each other out is a valid one. I think Wales' grey kit in the Euro's had a negative impact as well, we lost both games we played in grey and they were arguably our two worst performances that tournament.

I think our current away strip for a night game on green grass and bright flood lights is the worst possible strip we could have picked. We might have got away with it if we had black shorts, at least that would allow the players to pick each other out a bit better. But white shorts gives our kit absolutely nothing that stands out on a bright flood lit pitch.

Believe me, I used to train on the Treforest University Playing Fields under flood lights. I remember wearing an old yellow City away shirt and several of the team said they found it difficult to pick me out. That split second difference between spotting someone and not spotting someone could be the difference between winning and losing a game.

Whether our away strip had a negative effect at Preston, I don't know. But I certainly don't think our away strip will do us any favours this season, put it that way.

Children especially want the kit the team where, they will see it on sky, in the papers online from pictures of the game and tell dad they want it. Although I'd rather us in blue I understand why Adidas would want it used every so often. I don't think it's a problem.

If we're using the green shirt as an excuse then God help us. Anyway, from what I've seen, it's as bright as hell for picking out teammates (and I quite like it).

The lime green and white shorts looked like a parks game where the team has to swop shirts with the team on the next pitch due to a colour clash.
Looks abysmal.
