I’m kind of amused by the notion that adult men could ever address ideas around self-awareness and thinking they look ok in the most conservatively coloured football shirts, especially the XXXL ones.

Real men wore pink in the 80’s old chap. We flew the flag whilst you were still at your mothers breast. Impertinent pipsqueak.
The fact that we are not taking care of the planet, our children will pay the consequences. With football it will be the same because we're destroying football and in the future we'll see the negative effects. Those who have power are responsible for it.

Still not a centenary kit though.


My daughter loves the kit, and Marmite, she stunned me by asking for the shorts as well, I am fairly certain she’ll wear them more often than the shirt. I love marmite, I thought the kit was okay when I first saw it, definitely not a centenary kit, not even close, I don’t hate it, I just don’t think it’s a Leeds kit. Hope we only wear it a couple of times, and I can hear those games on the radio, unlikely I know since we’ll be wearing it this avo ..

Yep it's a commercial success according to Angus.

The normal shirts are 50 so what do we think for these? 60-70 quid?

Surprised we don't see this more often. It's not uncommon in rugby for teams to have 5/6 shirts a season.

Heritage shirts, will they carry the hanging sheep city logo, do you think, or the updated Wilko shield just in faded/faux text or print?
The 1934-38 shirts, in the old gold and blue quartered combination with opposing coloured collars, and the hanging sheep badge on white background is superb.
Reproduced in modern fabrics, would, I think make it a winner.
At least let's hope they don't reprise the 1919-20 Dogbotherers style we first used.

Yeah, an updated version of the quartered shirt would be ace.
Not a shirt buyer normally but I'd buy one of them.

Halves rather than quarters, given we wore that for 15 years or so. Have we done quarters? Not when yellow/blue were the home colours?

That's the one I have. It's halves, not quarters - if you are talking about the one with the front being divided in half and the back also being divided in half - which is normally what's meant by halves.
I look like a God in it, as you might expect.

I have quiet a lot of the Kappa shirts with no sponsor that I wear when I go running. Brought one full price, and 4-5 for 10 quid a pop during the clearance. I will definitely get one this season for myself, my youngest already has the keepers kit, and my daughter has the away shirt on it's way. I won't buy one for myself until I've seen them all, but if I had to choose today itd be the white version. I'd pay 100 quid for the right centenary shirt without a sponsor.

No-one knew before this summer and the ultimate source is a black and white photo so hardly conclusive, just looks darker stripes than photos from the same paper a few months later. Desperately hope our Juve loving owner doesn't consider it enough to have a black and white striped centenary kit only for evidence to emerge we never actually wore black and white in 1919.
