Any news on the 3rd kit? The leak with the chequered trim is definitely it, right?
I hope so, i've had my Chinese fake for a week already.

We moan about the kits, but have you seen the new match ball? My lad wants a new casey, then saw that and said nah, can I have a 2015 ball instead.



I love the 'technology' of this ball to be honest, the colourway here isn't as good as it could be but without the patterns it's a really nice ball.

Anybody wanting the new away shirt player version? Bought it off DHgate but itís too small for me. Itís a large so will probably fit like a UK medium.

£15 plus postage costs. PM me if interested.

When you say player version do you mean the £100 vapour version? Is the fabric and fit etc identical to the legit version?

It did look quite orange today, but the darker red looked mid-noughties bright as well. I think under the lights it'll look much better.

Apologies if it has already been highlighted, I haven't gone back through this thread, but I've just seen that Spurs have got the exact same GK kit as we do.

Proper lazy from Nike that isn't it? Chelsea's design is the same, but it is a grey colour not green.

All manufacturers do this and have done so for years, I can remember teams having the same GK shirts back in the early 90ís if we exclude the days of all keepers normally wearing green.

I honestly can't say I've ever noticed 2 identical keeper kits. The design being similar, sure, but exact same design and colour for 2 teams in the same league? I've not noticed.

Maybe I was just ignorant to it.

If you really want to look into it check this out. Itís only adidas and Iíve linked the part from the mid 90s onwards. But it really has been a thing for quite a while. From this you can see Rangers, Newcastle and ourselves shared quite a few along with others

Proof for anyone who still thinks our new home kit has orange trim. The ball has orange on it and so do the boots. The trim is crimson.

It's neither orange or crimson. It's salmon.  :D

They'll be like our away kit last season with the positioning of the pattern on each one being slightly different.

Is the thought that the "match" shirt is genuinely better then? Love the away kit, but I'm honestly not sure I can bring myself to spend a ton on a football shirt.

The impression I used to have was that the match shirt was actually the worst to buy if you planned to wear it a lot as the shirts the players receive aren't designed to be worn more than once, but everyone seems convinced now that this is indeed a superior product.

It's miles better, the feel and the look.

[The players reuse the kits, they have a certain amount of allocated shirts for the season, so they do wear them more than once].

Interesting. Might have to give it a think. Everyone on here certainly seems into it. Is this something that Nike and Adidas (I've just noticed they offer a £100 authentic shirt) do exclusively? I've never bought a £65 shirt and thought that it didn't feel like a decent product so it's interesting that everyone seems to universally agree that it's worth the extra £40.

I bought it since I had a discount, so it was $20 dollars less than what it would have been. NB do this as well, but the difference in quality imo isn't as vast as it is with Nike [between the two versions]. I have the regular version of the teal kit from last year, and this year's home kit, night and day difference in terms of quality.

The downside is if you aren't in shape.

If you're not in a hurry and can wait, usually November-December the kit shirt goes on sale. By Feb-March you'll see near 50-60% off.

There will be plenty of other sites you can get them from. Hell even ordering from the US is worth it given the discounted prices at that point.

Wearing the shirt is debatable IMO, unless youíre one of the players or a kid. Wearing the vapour is definitely debatable unless youíre ripped like the players are.

It's not just about being ripped. I'm certainly not ripped but the player versions are a lot more comfortable to play football in.

If you play footy, or will wear it to the gym or cycling or something like that, then it's worth the extra for the player version in my opinion.

You don't need to be ripped like the players, you need to be in decent shape.

Any physical activity in it is much more comfortable. If you can afford it, do it, I hardly wear em but when I do I rather have the better quality version

I prefer the stadium version (the cheaper version) because of the quality - specifically the embroidered badge and the buttons.
Also the fit is more forgiving for the stouter gentleman  - it  fits like a Fred Perry or Lacoste rather than an athletic vest.
And like dF says above If you are going to wear it for 5 aside etc. (and you haven't got a gut) get the player version.

This is actually an interesting point. I'll probably get the player edition based on what others are saying, but I don't really like the look of the badges and Nike symbol. I know it's not the case, but they give the impression that brushing your hand down the front of your chest could knock them off.

The rubber stamps look far more defined and cleaner, especially at a distance. There's zero danger of them ever coming off the shirt. They've been heat pressed into the fabric, and fuck knows what kind of glue they're using because I get the impression that the only way to get the logos off the shirt would be to cut them off, fabric and all.

That's a relief. Was sure they were ok, but all the photographs I've seen make them look like they're protruding about half an inch off the shirt.

Zero chance of them falling off. They stick out slightly, but like Mac said, you'd have to cut it off with a knife for that to happen.

Side note, the NB regular version kits of ourselves feel better than the regular Nike version of our kits. But the players version is top class.

For me living in Los Angeles the player version is just nicer due to the breathability of the shirt.  I wear it to my kids soccer games and for the day on our game days and it's probably the most comfy shirt I have for 100+ degree days.
