Next Year's Kit?

Recommended Posts

If I'm forced to go out an buy a fuckin pink away kit....

....I'm gonna make the fuckin Mrs wear it!!!

 

Seeing as all us loyal supporters spend our hard earned money on our tribal colours they could at least try to make us all look like cunts!

It sounds like Everton are really trying to walk to the ends of the earth for this kit, grand speeches, competitions and a marching parade into the store for the unveiling!? They are trying to get us excited about a polished turd basically. Trying to flog this (pink) dead horse by tarting up its unveiling is a joke.

 

The idea of people buying before they see it, is basically saying that our fans are soo passionate, that they will be willing to buy something without knowing where the money is going!? Joke.

 

If it is the pink kit, im worried for our dignity, honestly! The game of football is not just about the skill, but also a small percentage is the physcological impact oo the players. They say that kits can have a very slight advantage or disadvantage mentaly; teams in red tend to seem more 'aggressive and in you face' on the pitch, the colour blue suggests a 'calm, slow approach', tighter fitting shirts can make the players look more 'proud', whereas baggy shirts look 'lazy'.

Chelsea's kit compensates the colour with the fitting and detail. Our kit last season, wasn't fitted, looked shit and made our 'boys' look like 'girls' with their buil in bra's.

 

This pink kit (If real) will make our boys look like faggots and potential laughing stocks. like most, i won't be buying it (If you haven't guessed already)

 

There's my rant :)

 

 

Ive gotta say im with you in all that you say there mate

 

It better not be that crap pink shirt we have all had the dis honour of viewing recently. Robert elstone said its visually stunning. He better be right, or i'll visually stun him haha!

it's official now. that pink thing was the real deal. what a fuck up that is. blue bill must have thought to himself, "i bet i could save a penny on kits for the players if we chose pink, never have a need to wear anything else." I'll make one concession: it looks marginally better on the players than in that picture.

As I said in the shoutbox it's fairly horrible but not as bad as the leaked photo suggested...I certainly won't be buying it.

 

Why pink two years running :mellow: ?

Aww man, I didn't like the black/pink combo at the start of last season but grew to like it and eventually bought it. Don't see that happening this year, no Europe so no 3rd shirt probably so am hoping the home one is a belter.

 

Actually why is the away being released earlier than the home? You'd think the bigger sales are always going to be in the home top so best to release it at start of summer unless it is a complete balls up as well... May end up just buying a training top or something this year...

I love that Timmy is looking up to heaven thinking "what did i do to deserve this..."

 

truely awful kit. Shocking is the right word, though not the definition they wanted.

 

Interesting point Louis......

 

OH! ive just seen the point of it! We will win every away game next season! Why? If you were a defender of the opposition with all that running at you, would you not fall to the ground laughin? Open goals all game long, record scoring!

 

Either that or its designed to burn the eyes from the oppositions sockets....

....It's alright.

Better than the leaked shirt, i'll probably still be buying the home but I don't think it's as bad as your first impressions.

 

I bet it grows on you!

I think it looks much better on the players than in the leaked snap.

I'd even go as far as to say..... I quite like it

:arrowhead: Who threw that

are there any ideas knocking about for what the home kit will be or when it will be announced?

 

It'll be like the goalkeepers one above except the black and yellow will be blue.. a nod to the 80s bib apparently.

We're gonna be the laughing stock in both Manchester, Red Liverpool and London. Why do the designers think pink is so AWFULLY cool? Or is it just to frighten the opponents? And the design of it is not exactly creative. I think this jersey would increase morale in the opposition's dressing room, and decrease it in ours..

^ article says they've moved £42,000 in shirts. at £50 a shirt that's about 840 or 168/hr. Not exactly the huge numbers they'd have you believe. I think the kit is alright, it's not as dreadful as I first thought and will probably grow on me, but I'll wait to see the home strip before buying anything...when is that one coming out, you think they'd have set a date and announced it when they launched the away kit today.

i worked out 200 an hour selling for five hours as the article says, adult mens only @ £41.99 each. thats 1.6 shirts sold every minute, per store.

i'm not sure how it compares to others, but that is a hell of a successful launch in my opinion!

I finally clicked on the video and my god.. cheesy? it's horrific! Can't tell from the pixelation but I'm sure Jack looks terrified.

 

 

Anyway, at this rate it'll pay for Beckford's wages for a bit.. unless Le Coq get a huge chunk per shirt? How much does the club reportedly get per shirt sold?

Absolutely awful colour and design it would be more suited at a 90's gay rave then on a football pitch :blink: and the cheap video of Jack unveiling it is terrible.

How pathetic are you lot!!! Awesome away kit. Totally different and no other team would have the balls to pull it off. I'm all for the individualism!

 

 

I think it's great. I liked the pinstripe last term and this one is brilliant to me. I can see us doing well in it!

I agree with Ten, its a fucking embarrassment!

 

Within an hour after it was officially released I received 2 texts from my mates taking the piss. In fact he said we would look like 'a bunch of gays'... These arent even Liverpool supporters...

 

I dont mind pinks kits. in fact I think it can work well if done right but imo it looks cheap and just shit.

 

Hopefully the home kit is better!

 

This is rumoured to be the new home kit:

Looks more like a training top imo...

Can understand people not liking it but anyone taking the piss using the "gay" line can be safely ignored as a dinosaur totally lacking in imagination.

 

Pink = Gay is so 1970's :rolleyes: .

Do you know where it can be pre-ordered Mike? ;)

I don't think it can be yet Louis, but I'm sure the more observant and eagle eyed among our members won't have missed the handy link at the top of the page where all the lastest news of Kitbag's wide range can be found and items can be purchased at reasonable prices :D .

I may not have been a member long but have read years of posts on here before it became a memeber only site. There are a few poeple on here who bring up very valid points and have valid view points, alternately there are a few who seem to have very blinkered or unknowlegable viewpoints. I think if someone has some insight on a subject it will be debated.
