Title: Kits
Post by: gavin on July 01, 2019, 21:09:20
Novelty kits not City kits. I won't be buying one this season, again. Blue and fucking white. It ain't hard.

Lol 😂. I agree. I think I’ll stick with my favourite shirt the one I bought on the day Kun signed for us. A very happy day in my life and City life.

Not bought one for years, just stick to the 68 and  98 home tops, lovleh.

The black ones alright but the home tops a bit mingin with the purple. It's shame cos the shorts and socks look spot on but only if it was white on the shirt, tut.

Gav's right, but I will be buying one I reckon.  They've been very 'samey' for years now.  At least these ones are a bit different. 

They will still never beat the Brother Kappa kit though.

They should be samey. They're City kits. They should be sky blue with bits of white. Two out of the last three years they've had shitty grey arms for some reason. Now purple which is a bit mad and doesn't go well. Could have been maroon.

Last I bought was this. Quite smart and I still wear it.

Last home kit I bought was the 2009/10 Umbro shirt, a simple classic design and it's still in good nick despite being worn for most home games since.

I remember one that was bit similar to that but surely they're the worst?!

I dunno Gav, this horror from the 90s was pretty grim, looks more like a badly designed rugby league shirt.

Both of them are bad but I still think this years third is the worst ever.

My oldest daughter loves it and that I guess is the marker it is aimed at.

seems a bit too specific aiming a kit at your kid

Old sods can buy kits too. I bought a top a couple of years ago when one was decent. Trouble is they're normally shite like these. Still saves me some cash.

Ha ha, I remember that match, some City fans booed when the team ran out wearing that kit, things didn't get any better when the game started.

Found some footage on youtube.

As yellow kits go thats a belter - especially compared to this season's.

But it was yellow and nobody at the club mentioned in advance that we'd be wearing it for that match, it was a failed marketing ploy by the City director who owned Umbro - that was what annoyed the supporters.

The home actually looks not too bad in match action but still not a City kit.

you  probably buy the shorts  and socks an all, can see you bumbling around tesco with shin pads on to complete  the  look

Confession time. At Eitihad Monday and I bought the third kit. Looks better than in print but I bought it mainly because it was the only triple X size I could find in the store.

They don’t cater for extra big fans.

Great news just after I have forked out £75. I have registered interest anyway but it better come in XXXL.

Can't believe we've got yet another kit. Even more annoying that the special that was worn before the Cup Final and this one are by far the best kits we've had for ages. That mix up one was fucking horrendous though.

That is a lovely kit but doesn't look like any of the details, including the crest, are stitched on. If that's the case then that's poor from puma.
