New Kit For Season 2017-18

Recommended Posts

New kits are to be launched in the next few weeks

 

What do we want from Macron for next season?

 

My preference is

 

Home - traditional amber with claret band, claret shorts and socks

 

Away - white with claret and amber trim, white shorts and socks

I'd like to see a version of the black and claret dash zoom kit with the embroidered logo as our away kit. Still one of my favourite kits just a shame I never got it.

I'd like to see a similar home kit as last year, thought had more of a classic feel.

Away I would like either plain white/black top

Black, or anything fluorescent, should be nowhere near a football top.

 

But I'm old and know nothing.

I'm prepared to bet that Queen's Park have been on the go longer than you and have been quite happy with black on their tops!

That black away top we had a couple of seasons ago was rubbish. It looked like training gear.

 

Hopefully the home top has a full hoop, and for the away a white top with claret detail (maybe a sash) would do for me.

Can we just bring back the baggy 90's strips, so that the average overweight fan can hide my fat better?

It should take no more than five minutes to design a Motherwell home strip. Fuck about with the away one until your heart's content.

 

Pretty sure the away will be better than this seasons absolute howler.

I always think the club start selling the kits far to late, they should be on sale about now so kids can get them for going on holiday but it's usually late July August before they are on sale

They should and I suspect most clubs would aim to do exactly that if all things are equal. I have a mate involved in the commercial side of things at another club and I got wee insight recently into to some of the things that can delay a launch.

 

From supplier and delivery issues, to finding companies willing to sponsor the shirt to even directors calling a halt at the last minute because they think they can squeeze an extra couple of grand out of deal, it was an interesting discussion.

The Canadian tribute strip was indeed honking

Yeah, never understood that? Going as far back as the fluorescent yellow kit, which I'm sure came out in October.

:lol:

 

I presume we are pretty far down the pecking order of whatever manufacturer we have, which may be why?

If they didn't change the designs every season, the kids could grow out of their old ones and have the new ones bought by the end of May.

Traditional home kit and why not the old "floodlight" kit for the away strip: only fellow oldies will recognise the latter.

Couldn't have put it better myself. Our change kits have been, in the main, really good over the last few years, but the two just there were horrific.

Are we talking the terrible white "cup" top or the awesome Denim top here?

Both shite IMHO. The white one isn't aesthetically terrible but it is shining a light on quarter of a century of failure for me.

I have seen some great Motherwell sides play in a white top.

 

At the end of the day, however, I don't really care what colour it is as we rarely need to wear one.

I was referring to both (white and denim) change kits being shite.

 

I thought the home one last season was decent tbf, albeit I'd have preferred claret shorts.

We should never mess too much with the home top. I prefer a proper hoop combined with a classy design. The ones that haven’t worked so well recently have been the ones that have been a bit fussy and over complicated the design. The away is for experimentation and no matter what the decide on it will split opinions. I am also in the white away camp, however, the one we had this year was not one of my favourites. The 91 success has been over done in my opinion and only shines a beacon on how long we have went with silverware. I can’t say I was overly keen on the denim away shirt either, although I praise them for trying something different.

Sorry, I'm on my phone and no idea how to post pictures, but this is the ideal away kit for me.

The design was a 1970s classic designed by Umbro. It’s surely due a modern day revival similar to the Roma away you have linked.
