The yellow one doesn't have the controversial collar though Personally, I'd rather get another retro shirt, but maybe it's worth waiting for the European home shirt?

It's not a bad shirt but people don't buy the shirt as a fashion statement-if you want a shirt then you would generally buy one regardless of how it looks. We've had far dodgier ones in the past.

Didn't Man Ure have an awful number with a string tie collar in the 90s? They don't seem to have done too badly from a financial point of view and besides Adidas is a step in the right direction.
Plenty of people wear shirts outside of going to the match, you would have to be blind not to notice that. People do buy it as a fashion statement and, sadly, United's shirts are far nicer than ours and have been for many years. So in conclusion, I disagree with everything you say there other than we have had a run of bad shirts, but you have a right to your opinion

ManU's kit this year is awful, I htought it was a training top when I first saw it. It looks like the kit of a non league team.

Actually I like the retro type design, would have bought ours if it looked like that, but to each their own. My point still remains, ours are never good.

So if people buy them as a fashion statement, do you buy other team's shirts then if they are 'nicer' than ours? Supporters will generally buy shirts regardless of what they look like. You disagree with everything-so did you like United's stringy gay number? I also said that I generally don't wear shirts as a fashion item but did not comment on whether or not others do.

I think that you have just proven that whether the shirt is nice or not is subjective and down to personal taste. I like the new LFC shirt design and hate the Man U one. Therefore you can only say that in your opinion our shirts are never good....

Why do people on here seem to take disagreement as a personal insult? I even went to the bother of putting a smiley on the end of my post ffs.
Of course many supporters will buy it no matter what it looks like, but given that myself and many other supporters have said they wont be buying it because it looks crap proves that they would sell a lot more otherwise. I wouldn't buy another English team's kit no matter what, but I would definately wear a shirt from another country and I imagine its the same for people in other countries, so thats another market our crappy shirt misses out on.

No, but its a lot of people saying they dont like our shirt, I dont what the Utd fan's opinion of their's is, but the old 70's/80's kits that clubs do sell quite well themselves if thats any indication.
Although I do agree its down to personal taste, just that a lot of people seem to dislike this shirt, not just me. Usually the home shirt is just bland which isnt quite so bad, but to me this one looks stupid which is far worse.

Setting the shirts aside for a moment, if Diao plays well tonight it looks like we could get £700k for him
However, I have a feeling we're more likely to get 50p

I'm waiting for Stevie G to tell me weather I should like it or not now


I think it's an improvement on last seasons home shirt. didn't like the plaque thing the crest was surrounded by or the horrid hexagonal-type area around the neckline.

I'm not a huge fan of collars, but the one on the England shirt doesn't seem to bother me, so I'm sure I'll be fine with this one too

I very nearly bought a shirt last night but over £50 including the premiership badges and p&p is a lot of money just for a shirt. Think i'll stick with my old one for now.

Anyone who wears a football shirt as a fashion statement either A. Has no taste or B. Is from Dublin (I'm from Dublin so I am allowed to say that).

I am of the opinion that football shirts should be worn whilst playing football or watching football and for nowt else. Having said 2 of my brothers are ManU fans and they have both just bought the new manu home and away kits (or they have ordered them) and they will live in them for the rest of the season.

I saw a whole group of Chinese guys in London yesterday wearing Liverpool shirts (what I can only assume where fake as they all looked like the new jersey).

Regardless of whether they should or they shouldnt be worn, people do wear them outside of those times and its losing us money not exploiting that.

People will always wear their shirts outside of football. They're proud of supporting their team and it's their god given right to wear whatever they want, no matter what anyone thinks!

Of course they are and more power too them. I was just stating my opinion. I am proud of supporting my team (My office is covered with Liverpool stuff, I have a mug, mousemat, scarf round my monitor, pictures from the CL and FA Cup on the walls - My boss is not too happy about it though) but I don't like wearing a jersey outside of supporting the team at games or down the pub.
