Next season kit

Recommended Posts

Imo the home kit should be traditional broad royal blue and white stripes, the design can be altered slightly every year to flog more shirts and away shirts can vary wildly. But the current shirt and the proposed return to the Wednesday 'Arsenal' shirt is simply the wrong thing thing to do. 

Home shirt =  Broad Royal Blue and White Stripes. That Mr. Chansari is what the vast majority of your customers want. 

Speak for yourself! I like the retro shirt. 

Sick of fans thinking they speak for everyone.

Chansiri is a businessman; if the figures suggest he's made a mistake then I'm sure he'll rectify it. But judging by the number of fans who turn up to Hillsborough wearing the current shirt, and the fact that it sold in record numbers, you may be out of touch with the majority of Wednesdayites (I know there are several vociferous voices on this matter on here, but Owlstalk can be a bit of an echo chamber in that respect - we're not actually that representative of the fanbase at large). Personally, I think it looks OK but I don't like it enough to buy it. I have high hopes for next season's effort, though...

Like I've said in the past... my gripe I have is that if enough shirts are sold in it's current form e.g. the new shirt, will that make chansiri assume fans are happy with it. Yes I guess fans will be happy, it's something different but over the long term?

If he was to say it's just for this season and that he doesn't plan to take the stripes away for good then I might buy it. The problem I have is nothing is being said about the long term plans for kit design.

Some may say I'm being daft but for me Wednesday play in blue and white stripes, yes chansiri has been a great chairman and others say he puts the money in he can do what he wants... well yes fair enough let him do what he wants but would you been happy if you knew that for as long as chansiri owns us we never play in stripes?

I'd just like to know if this new kit would be a one off or a permanent change.

Well this is what I'm trying to get at.. as some on here are under the illusion that they will be back.

Like you said, he doesn't like stripes and for me that points to a kit without our stripes long term.

Yes I'm all up for a change every now and then although annoyed that our 150th kit won't be stripes but it would only be fair to fans to make it clear as to wether the stripes are gone for good or not.

Im sick of fans that live the other side of the world telling me that it looks great, but when we go to home matches it should be nothing other than a sea of blue and white stripes. Its our identity

Even my 4 year old wont wear this seasons. Hes blue and white stripes only. I'm fed up of saying it but as a club we are that late selling shirts people would buy a Tesco bin liner as a shirt as they are that desperate to buy one. The club knows this and is getting away with it. But in a year or 2's time people will get fed up and crave the stripes back

It wont be percieved as a "Wednesday Kit" is that better 

 

Take a look at the new Bayern Munich crest that's how you honour tradition minute changes to modernise not just bin the vast majority of your clubs history because the owner doesn't like stripes 

 

 

Come on now Lawrie - no killing needed around these parts lol

What they sell retro shirts... that actually have them in the shop?

 

Yeah - I have the 91/92 home and away shirts. They don't have the 'umbro' on it but otherwise pretty accurate.

 

They also do slightly older ones from early 80s and, ironically enough, the blue with white sleeves from the 60s.

Yeah I thought that but then the collar isn't right which you rightly point out. In fact its more v neck with a collar

Look I'm desperate for stripes lol

So bringing out a kit that is similar to the one we wore for our 100th anniversary is binning the clubs history...reyt

Cheap shot I had a season ticket for 20 years. I spent 2000 dollars flying home for the playoffs. I'm awake every Sunday morning at 2am listening to or watching whatever games are available. 

Don't question my commitment.
