    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    It’s that time of year when the new kits for the coming season will soon be revealed. Macron have done a relatively good job during the 5 years they have suppled our kit. Xara got 9 years and are still our longest supplier in recent years. They supplied our kit from 1998 until 2007. So what are we all hoping Macron will give us for the 2019-20 season? Of course both shirts will more than likely be ruined by the obligatory ‘betting dot com’ sponsor. An unfortunate trait that effects nearly 35 clubs over the UK and the biggest moan that I hear on the football kit forums from fans of clubs blighted by the online gambling industry. EDIT: Poll added to gauge preferences now the kits have been showcased. Absolutely nothing to do with updating the poll on the front page whatsoever... (Andy_P_

    Sampdoria style but green instead of blue.

    2019-20 League Cup

    A hard working pro who never reached the heights of his brother, however, having spoke to his one of his close relatives I know which one is favoured, and lets just say it’s not Chris.

    Motherwell Fc Memorabilia Thread

    Everton have also modernised/simplified their crest. A few clubs have gone down this route in recent times and like any business it’s good to bring your corporate identity up to date. I have always wanted to have a go at tweaking our club badge, and if I get around to it I will post the result on this thread.

    I’ve heard the same alleged PP rumour, so expect some high jinks before the launch. A missed opportunity from Paddy Power..?

    Footy.com have written a blog on the prolific rise in shirt gambling sponsorship...

    It’s purely a Paddy Power publicity stunt for the kit launch. Although it does highlight how ridiculous sportswear sponsorship has become in 2019.

    As a shirt purist this would be my preferred option, although, on the financial side the club would suffer.

    We’ve always managed to fill the space, so I don’t see why this season should be any different from previous years.

    So potentially we have no front of shirt sponsor for the start of the new season. However, I refuse to believe that won’t be resolved asap as our marketing team are usually on the ball with these things.

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    I wonder how much it costs to secure the front of shirt sponsorship on our tops?
  12. underboyleheating

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    A few shots on Alamy taken during season 83-84 (v Hibs and v Dundee) and the sponsor is not evident.
  13. underboyleheating

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    I noticed that, however, i would need to see some photographic evidence of it on a shirt during season 83-84 for it to be recorded as fact during this period. We have evidence of use during 82-83 but as yet none for the following season.

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    It was myself that supplied that date as a guide to Dave at Historical Kits, however, the November 82 McClair picture kicks that into touch. It will need to be revised when I have the exact start and finish date.

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    Sadly I don’t collect programmes but I’m sure there will also be some clues within ours as to the exact date that Scottish Brewers featured on our kit, and perhaps when the agreement ended. I have a recollection that the deal was short and sweet, but it would be good to know the exact dates for our historical kit records. This image of Brian McClair which featured on a March 83 cover and was clearly taken during a game v Rangers at Ibrox. The game against them was in November 82 and it asks the question whether Scottish Brewers ever featured on our top prior to that game.

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    I’m sure that’s a good reason as to its non appearance on any You Tube archive footage. So is there any historical/pictorial evidence as to when it was first worn on our shirts and when it last appeared on them? It would be good to clear this up for our online kit archive.
  17. underboyleheating

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    No clue of the game but the sponsor top is pictured here worn by Bobby Flavell
  18. underboyleheating

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    It would be good to get the facts on which games it was used as it seems to appear and disappear at will. The McClair programme cover image is an important clue as it was clearly worn during a Rangers away match prior to 83. A bit of a puzzle.
  19. underboyleheating

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    So no Brewers logo on the shirts during this 20 November 82 game, so why would it be on the shirts at the 4 November 82 game v Rangers?
  20. underboyleheating

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    I suspect the McClair image was taken at the March 83 game as the logo is not on the shirts in the January 83 match v Celtic. *Edit I’ve just realised that can’t be the case due to the date on that programme.
  21. underboyleheating

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    So the Clyde cup game may well have been Scottish Brewers first outing.
  22. underboyleheating

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    League game 15th January, 1983 v Celtic and no Scottish Brewers logo.
  23. underboyleheating

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    I’m not sure if the Scottish Brewers logo was on the shirts prior to that Clyde cup game, and it may have been it’s first ever appearance. It certainly wasn’t on the shirts during league matches as I can find no video/still images of us wearing it out with those cup games.
  24. underboyleheating

    Macron 2019-20 home and away kits

    February 1983?

    Sounds about right, Pat in his Clyde days. What was the dates of the Scottish Cup ties?
