    3rd kit.....

    Post by MadAmster on Wed 23 Aug 2017, 4:00 pm

    .... teasing preview put out by the club. The kit will be revealed on Friday. The tease is of the right chest of the shirt with the Umbro badge on it. The shirt itself is a series of several shades of grey triangles. A touch of pink up around the collar, hopefully on the inside...... Hopefully only the keeper will be saddled with it.

    I can already hear oppo fans baiting us with something loosely based on 50 shades......



    The pink doesn't show on this image. The original had it running diagonally over the top left hand corner of the picture from about 1cm down the side to 1cm across the top of the pic. Your thoughts please.

    Seeing as I don't like the home kit and would only wear the away kit on a building site or whilst directing traffic I have hopes this may be the saving grace and extract some pounds from my piggy bank

    not holding out huge hopes mind...

    I am sure that around 1985/86 we played 1 match at the Baseball Ground in Red and Black Hoops?? or am I going mad? but they looked cool!

    I remember one with black, grey and red vertical stripes from the late 80's I think.

    Saw it in on sale at the club shop (Ramtique)? at the old Baseball Ground when my old man took me to buy the current home kit. Might've actually been early 90's even - the days & years begin to blur! LOL

    Not sure about us having a grey third kit. I dimly recall that business back in April 1996 when Manure played at Southampton in their third kit of grey shirts and white shorts. They were getting walloped 3-0 at half-time and Ferguson made them change into in their second choice kit for the second half.

    The excuse given was that in grey shirts the players couldn't see each other against the crowd background on such a sunny day.

    I'd hate that to happen to us...

    I remember that, and did wonder why they (Manure) have gone back to grey again, for this season's third kit! Dunno

    I can understand us making that mistake, but the Mighty Manure should know better!! :faint:

    Home page of the OS has the full monty on view. It is, as guessed from the sneak preview, several shades of grey and the pink is there in a thin stripe from collar to where the shoulder joins the sleeve.

    I won't be buying one.

    It's ok to wear whilst cleaning out wheelie bins with a high pressure hose. It's a bit council.

    It looks like something they used to upholster car seats with back in the 80's, plus a pink stripe.

    Seeing the pink stripe on the shoulder took me straight back to the pink keeper's shirt designed, if I remember correctly, by John Gregory's wife. Lee CAMP refused to wear it.

    I reckon that all three of this season's kits are pretty horrible. It's frustrating because there were several designs by fans kicking around in the summer which looked far more appealing.
