I have just been looking at some of our old shirts available on line. And found this little beauty. I wish that I had kept mine now.

The issue I have with the new shirt is that it is nearly the same as last seasons. The designers if we can call them that have just got rid of the white lines from the collar. The season before last it was the same again apart from white lines at end of the logo going down the front. It appears as if they haven't taken much time thinking of the design again, which is not acceptable considering the price.

 I would like something different like stripes or a 80's retro look but I cant see that happening judging by the previous poor generic designs.

Standard Nike template, nothing original. Plain white shorts and socks. Probably the cheapest option. I was hoping for something a bit more original but then I would probably moan about it being too gimicky. That's when good design comes in. All so dull, but thankfully its not like Stevenage or Forest Green.

SHOCK,  Manwork posts another negative comment about NTFC!!!

Simplicity is good, that is why the Lotto shirt has always been the favourite.

My wife always buys me a home shirt every year for my birthday, which is in August. For me, it is far too like last years, not really worth spending £45 for such a minor change. Surely there is a better option from the Nike catalogue, I understand that we cannot afford  a bespoke design , but to me I just cannot see how this shirt will generate good sales. If we hadnít of had a plain shirt for a season or two, it would be great , but just think , when itís important to make as much money as possible, the club have missed a good opportunity.

At the Open Day they could run a "Spot the difference" contest using our recent kits. By the way, what will we wear at Bradford City? I predict a third kit on the way.

While I would hate to see anything gimmicky this is at the other end of the scale entirely.
Where's the 'wow' factor with this?

Itís a smart kit but far too similar to last year. If the club wants people to buy shirts every year they should mix it up a bit more. I would like to see claret & white stripes one year

Everyone who doesn't get one will be sorry when they've sold out and we are on for another promotion season.
Still got my home '97 Lotto home shirt in the wardrobe.
Who thought that was gonna become a classic?

I was going to buy one but it would cost around $70 to ship it as well.

Just a few years ago people were complaining that the club were conning them out of money by changing the design of the shirts all the time, kids demanded new shirts, adults like to buy the latest. The Club were taking the p1ss was the cry, why do they keep changing it?was the moan.
Now people are complaining because it hasn't changed enough, the Club are conning people, why isn't it different every year ?
Have a word with yourselves you sound like a  load of spoilt brats who are stamping their feet because you cant get your own way, pathetic.

If they are going to change kits every year then yes they should be a bit different! Lets face it, the revenue earner for the club is from the replica kit sales, the more who buy the more money the club make.
If they're not thinking of changing it much we should have kept last years shirt.

People will buy the kit year in year out...they know that. But by being a bit "lazy" this year they have surely shot themselves in the foot with regards to sales.

I think it largely depends on what Nike have on offer. Whilst we're tied in with them we won't get anything bespoke. Just what's in the catalogue and is available in claret

The club have been doing a great job. They've stuck to the claret and white to please the traditionalists but altered it slightly each year to satisfy those that want to buy a new shirt each year. Anyone that complains about this strategy is doing it for the sake of it.

Fans "want to buy a new shirt every year"......are you sure about that? They want to?  I just think that this years is not really any different to last years so that might actually stop those people who do usually buy them (out of habit) every year from doing so.

I would rather the club suffer the loss of a few shirt sales and keep with traditional Claret shirts than rock up in August with an abomination of candy striped shirt with added colours.
