New kit for 2022/2023???

Recommended Posts

Designers got there money for feck all work with that design, an unashamed copy of a nearly 40 year old strip, a distinct lack of creative input.

I don't buy any replica kit anymore but for me it's not a good design a bit too retro, but I am sure others will love it.

:lol: What creativity do you need for a ‘Throwback kit’ as the club have marketed it as?

I don't think it looks that great in the still photos but at the same time it looks cracking in the video on the club's twitter so I'll reserve full judgement until I've seen it in person.

I get why folk might not like it or are into retro kits but for me I think it’s brilliant. I was 8 when that came out and I had the full kit which I wore to death, as soon as I saw it On Twitter I just thought of me as a wean playing down the park with all the other kids wearing rangers tops and a few aberdeen ones thrown in. Proper nostalgia trip for me. Love it

Awful. Far too much claret and not enough Amber. 
 

At least our ‘Jester’ kit of 96-98 gave us an equal measure of both our home colours.

Easily our worst home kit in years. :(

And yet the shirt on your chosen avatar is approximately 95% claret.

As long as we don't turn in the levels of performance as the throwback team that wore it, I'll be happy.

Those Jock Wallace/Bobby Watson seasons were not our finest,

That’s a complete understatement - they were god awful. Thanks MFC for resurrecting memories I’ve worked hard to erase for years.

As long as Alexander doesn’t do a Wallace and  go out on the first day of the season and clap all the rangers support and ignore the motherwell fans !! Never forget that, even as a kid I thought that was out of order.

If I was to he picky about the new kit it be the placement of the badge don't like it .I would have went full copy badge in the middle.

I am waiting in some decent training gear kinda annoys me that we hardly ever have gear in our colours not too into the black .Really want a decent well colours track top.

Creativity is what designers are paid for, I am sure the "new kit template" is costing the club a fair wedge of cash to produce,, and all they have done is Google  Motherwell old strips, copied the drawing moved the club badge over a bit and went to AB and said there you go, very good lucrative work if you can get away with it.

I think it's an instant classic. throwback to beating Rangers and Celtic at New year in that strip, Gary Mac, Andy Dornan, Stuart Rafferty et al.
Easily our best home kit for a while.

:lol: That just isn’t true.

You’re not getting the ‘throwback’ element of the remit/design.

Davie Hay still gets the blame in our household for foisting Wallace upon us.

And the job in the US he left us for fell through didn't it?

I seem to recall Wallace pushing Willie Irvine out the door because he didn't like his attitude - so he took his attitude to Hibs and became the SPL top scorer.

Did he no get a few other players oot the door? Never liked the ex Sargent of KOSB and former Berwick Rangers goalie.

Was it not he didn't have the correct paperwork and got turned back?

On first glance it looks great but there are some aspects where the lack of attention to detail just irritates me.  
Why isn’t the side amber panel on the shirt the same width as shorts?

Why the need for two macron logos on the shorts?
And the collar amber strips.  Either do it with multiple stripes like the ‘82 or a wider band.  As it is it looks like the collar design print from a completely different kit body.  
Will have to wait to see how the ‘fade’ between front panels looks irl but unnecessary fussiness for me.

That sounds about right. Although it would have been his US employers that needed to provide the paperwork, so they couldn't have been that concerned about it or they would have fixed it - unless he was a member of the Communist Party, a terrorist or a war criminal.
