I love all the griping over the inclusion of pink in our kits this year...for me it just sounds like nieve insecurity and a complete misunderstanding of color. Like for example, the fact that pink is quite simply red with some white in it, and in no way suggestive of gender or anything else. I have to say that after about 4 months of being a member of this forum the largest trend I notice is the overwhelming pessimism oozing from every other topic. The away kit? Really, is there a legit problem we can discuss? I happen to like both kits, home and away,I hapen to respect a company like Le Coq because of it's impressive lineage. The construction of the garment itself looks great, the "bra" area of the chest people have mentioned is for integral reasons and I'm sure came from some research (you have to keep in mind how different things look worn as apposed to product shots). Many of our players look great in the stuff ie. Neville, Jo, Rodwell, Vaughan...but there are others as well as many of us fans who simply don't look good in much, so perhaps that's the controversy...perhaps people overthink the chest piece, the white v, and the pink stripes and ultimately think they can't "pull it off". Right like that's the problem, isn't it about pride anyways?
Of course this is all just my opinion and as always open to debate
Take care and keep on playing, COYB
