Last nights clash of kit

Recommended Posts

Just read that Millwalls manager totally understood the referees decision not to let us play in our Yellow kit.

Apparentley if two teams kits are completely opposite colours, it could cause a player to catch something out of the corner of their eye and misplace a pass. 

I never considered that ............. WTF

Obvious isn't it. The kits were magnetic.

Any team who wears blue shouldn't have black as an away. Just doesn't work against so many teams, as nice as it looks.

If only we had a white kit to wear that we didn't use for half a season ...

Exactly. The 150th kit arrived late and left early but we keep the over ripe banana / ikea kit as a third choice . Totally baffling  !!! Which idiot makes these decisions

Wasn't last night's game the only the second time we've really had an issue?

On Ifollow the commentators said the referee had rejected our second kit because he claimed it was hard to see if it's a handball with it. 

 

Thats one special ref.

If that's the basis of his decision that prompts questions about whether the ref has good enough eye sight to officiate a professional game.

According to sky sports it was the yellow kit and a clash of colours?

 

Steve Bruce bemused by late kit change before Sheffield Wednesday's goalless draw

Sheffield Wednesday were asked to change to home strip as their yellow third kit was deemed a clash of colours

That's because the ball is also yellow, making it more difficult to see color contrast between the ball and the shirt. For example, if the player makes contact with the ball using their upper body, it might be difficult to tell if it hit their upper arm or chest.

I thought I read something last night that it was because of the black sleeves on the yellow kit and the ref couldn't differentiate between those sleeves and Millwall's navy sleeves.

Should play with a traditional white ball then instead of an over sized tennis ball.
