Kit clashes and changes

I like the black and white kit but why did we not wear red at Peterborough?

And West Bromwich Albion v Leicester. How was that not a kit clash?

    I thought exactly that when I watched the West Brom match

    It's a mockery Henners and the cynic in me says its pure commercialism to sell away strips when teams change when there is no need to, like us yesterday wearing white and a lot of the away games I've been to this year when we've unnecessarily worn the blue / mauve strip.

    As for WBA v Leicester that was a joke as insufficient difference in shade of colour when looking at both blue shirts from the back. Surely it is down to the referee to insist on a change of strip if he is not happy in these circumstances after all they are quick to tell substitute players warming up to put a bib on if their tracksuit top clashes.
  • I'm sure teams that have different sponsors on home and away strips have obligations to wear them a certain number of times each season. Even if they would never admit it publicly
  • I didn't think the black and white kit was for sale.

    The can't wear the red kit on Tuesday either
  • Also, we WANT the kits to clash.

    Kit clash is the wrong term to use when teams use similar colours, always bugged me that.

    Don't we want the kits to contrast ie be different rather than clash ie be similar.
  • Colours that clash are different colours. That's what we want.
  • Money spinning exercise.
  • But the white kit isn't for sale?
  • Well then that's just weird unique.

  • Even though I like the white shirt there was no reason why we couldn't have worn red. The players then might have believed they were playing "for the badge" and not for some nancy boy "can't get my lovely whit kit dirty" team.
  • Yes, no reason to wear the white kit yesterday
  • This season’s Peterborough kit has red socks (I live locally and there was some discussion about it at the time - think the conclusion was that historically Posh wore red). Can only assume this was the basis on which it was considered a ‘clash’.

    Couldn’t believe it when I heard we were wearing white - crazy!

    We're calling it a "kit blend" now. That's what we want to avoid (shout out to The Football Ramble listeners).

    I really like the white kit, but I like it better with black shorts.

    Examples of colours that clash are Red & Blue or Blue & Yellow
    Google it.

    Just one of those phases that everyone (in football) says but gets wrong.

    Do we really sell more away strips by wearing that kit against Peterborough when we could have worn our home?
  • Instead of an all-white kit I'm sure we could have found some black and white halved shirts for them to wear ...

    Like “one up front is really 3 up front and will pay dividends”
  • I do remember the ref making our keeper change his shirt,just before kick off at the valley, because it clashed with his.

    it's weird enough when chelsea and man city play each other in first choice kits but that west
    brom leicester game was utterly ridiculous

    I haven't been in the club shop for ages and wasn't aware, as Henry mentioned, they might not be available for general sale, so that kind of answers your question I guess ftb. Maybe if they get enough enquiries as to its availability or go with it as the main change of strip next season, wearing it yesterday will have served a useful purpose in stimulating demand, only time will tell if my cynicism was justified :wink:
  • I was surprised at the West Brom v Leicester kits, but not once had any difficulty in telling the difference between the two sides.

    Exactly, West Brom were the team who were shit.
