The new Sheffield Wednesday home shirt

Recommended Posts

I like it, if only because I was born in 65 .

It was the home shirt for my first 7 years.

So to me it's a real anniversary shirt.

:baby:

Horrible

1965-1972 was a very unsuccesful period in our history.

Even in the run to the 1966 Cup Final, we played all 6 games in white. I was at 5 of them. Missed Newcastle away.

 

One of the best days of my footy supporting life was August 1972 when Peter Swan led us out to play Fulham in our traditional kit. Sunny day. 25,000 crowd. 3-0 win.

 

The gold and black away kit looks OK though.

Think I prefer supporting Wolves to Ipswich.  

You sound like a whining old get.

Suppose when we played in orange we were Holland then .

The home kit is blue and white we kick off in 3 days get behind the boys !

I'm predicting a lot of nipple chafing, that badge looks heavily embroiled. 

 

Could have one or 2 early season injuries. Nipple replacement, out for 2 months

Why is important that the kit is blue & white?

Disappointing choices to celebrate 150 years. Should have been either our kit for the first 10 years or so (blue and white horizontal hoops), or the most often used pattern for over 100 of the 150 years (blue and white vertical stripes). The eclectic choices are blue and white halves(used for only 2 years), or blue body and white sleeves (used from 1965 to 1972 only and generally disliked). 

 

As someone who first went to Hillsborough in 1955 so approaching 70, I will not be buying one whatever but I am certain that part of the critical support from the crowd is really enhanced by the right kit. We need to excite the crowd and blue and white stripes would have really helped. So a real thumbs down on the choice-not the right way to celebrate 150 years.

No, it's not the worst home kit we've had and it's an improvement on last season's but for me it's similar to last season's in that it's a modern update. To me it doesn't look like the 1960s kit it's based upon. I prefer the away one because it's more creative and interesting. However neither kit seem suitable tributes for the 150th anniversary. A more fitting tribute would have been a kit replicating the iconic style of the early 1990s or a kit based upon the top flight title winning teams to honour the club's past and achievements.

 

Its not possible to make this sentence more nonsensical.

Looks tacky and worse quality than sondico if that's possible. 

I know the kit manufacturer doesn't make you world beaters but christ what I'd do for some Nike or adidas, or even Umbro right now!

Against City when we went down it was torrential rain as I remember and Mike Summerbee came on as Sub scored a pen and did a "Babe Ruth" but still Grummitt went the wrong way? also didn't look like there was a spare bit of room in the ground yet 45,000 gate.. Hillsborough held more than that then didn't it ?

If dc is trying to maximise income surely the easiest way would be to produce a striped kit ( which more people like) and keep his personal tastes out of it?

   What he's done is produce a kit that people will accept but not necessarily buy.

It looks crap but even if it were tailored on Savile Row from the purest Chinese silk it still wouldn't be a Wednesday kit.

Crap or not.

I think you will find, it is a Wednesday kit.

Because FFP could be a long term problem. Not just this season. 

 

Back to stripes next year and maximize the revenue then.

Certainly is a Wednesday kit, after stripes it's the most iconic strip there is, it's also the strip I grew up watching them wear for seven seasons, if anything, when they returned to stripes against Fulham on Swan's return, that's when the team didn't look like Wednesday to me, it took a few games to gel, I do prefer stripes but if we HAD to play in any other kit but stripes from now on, this new one would be the one as far as I'm concerned....so, yes I hope the stripes come back but in the mean time this will do nicely.
