Just a thought on this 'new' badge malarkey.

Has anyone from the club actually said its the new badge, or did the random on twatter [that suggested it was the new badge] gain more traction than he might otherwise merit?
I like it. What is it?

I think Phil Hay has reported it officially? It's not good though; taking the LUFC script away just leaves a series of meaningless random lines on the shield. I don't know why they keep getting it so wrong.

I know Hay has reported it... and yes, he's usually on the money. But it (he) still isn't the official club source... (And yes. It isn't good. At all.)

Relative to previous seasons, finishing seventh would be 'alright'...

If it genuinely was then I'd have expected a big announcement not slipping it on various things on the quiet. They may use that badge for certain things but I'm not convinced it's the one that'll be on the shirt.

I think they're quietly testing things, given this and the LU on the suits and stuff.

Phil Hay yesterday: Leeds United turn 100 this year - and this will be their centenary club crest

A spokesperson for United said: “The slightly modified crest will feature on the club’s 2019-20 kits and training range as well as a wide variety of exclusive centenary-led products and services. The amendment has been made in order to add the words ‘Leeds United 100 years’ wording to the club badge.”

I actually like what they did with the suits, a little bit like the Juve crest but i quite like it.

Don't really mind the 100 years thing either don't care for the colour but that could just be the poster?

Yeah, it could be much worse, certainly. I'm very much of the opinion they should have kept the bit they've ditched and ditched the rest. To me these would be absolutely perfect in every way:

I've never really loved the current badge but very much in its favour is that we've had it for about 20 years, whereas we had about, what, six entirely different ones over the previous 30, chopping and changing is so tinpot imo. the shield is very generic but I do the like the nods to two past badges and, like I say, it's now easily our longest running badge, with a fair bit of history behind it, from BAROMETER to Beckford, now Bielsa, and all the shite inbetween, it has to stay long term and imo should 100% be on the centenary designs.

I think my view is: It should remain our club crest, for the reasons above BUT the shirts, home at least, should be as close to plain white as possible. It should be the script alone because it nods to us at our best without ignoring us now, it's subtle so lends itself to a plain all white kit. It's association goes back almost 50 years even if only for 2 originally then back over 20 years later in 96 before it's permanent return in the current crest. If longevity is the thing it's 3 years up in the shield (though behind the upside down rose given that's been part of the badge for 30 years now).

While I'm at it, if at all possible we should be sponsor free (on the shirt too). Assuming we can't do that it should be as small as possible and as subtle as possible.

If needs be they could put the club crest on a little blue tag thing on the side of the shirt which nods to sock tags. They could also put "Leeds United" in the new font they seem to love on the back below the collar (where they've often put the script or MOT).

If it’s a centenary that’s being celebrated, the only vaguely coherent response is to do something with the badge of 100 years ago. This is just some extra lettering on a debased version of the current third rate badge.

Man speaks truth.
Very disappointed so far.
Centennial is a big deal, we should be doing better than this, looks like a teenager got the gig.

Didn't Eleanora have some fashion and design expertise. We had the answer right under our noses and let her slip away :elephant:
