Default football strips

Hi All

Just wanting to know how you all felt about clubs changing their strips, I support Hartlepool united and purchased their new strip at the start of last season and now they have announced that they are changing it again another 40 quid

Its madness.

You will be glad you are not a Premiership team fan esp. Man U as most of these teams change their strips once a season sometimes in Man u case twice and have at least 2-3 strips. Anyway no one over 16 should actually wear a football strip.

If people like you didn`t buy them, they would keep the same strip for years, and you would be 40 quid richer.
Come to Spain and buy copies for 12 € or 8 quid.

I'd say 40 quid for a Hartlepool United shirt was madness whether or not they changed it....

Can't you get a season ticket there for 40 quid?

That's what I thought SP, but apparently it's Atletico Madrid. They have a sponsorship with Columbia Tri-Star Pictures to sponsor new movies on their shirts lol

Only two facts I never knew about Pool.

1) They hung a monkey as a French Spy.

2) The Messiah started his managerial career there, but quickly left.

Aston Villa have been selling their new kit for the last couple of weeks with a sponsors logo that is supposed to read CDWS but looks more like COWS.
So the players will be wearing the same kit with a modified logo next season which the club will change and sell once the original stock has gone.
Only a slight change but very noticeable when comparing the two.
Some fans feel a little aggrieved to have paid 40 pounds for a top that won't be an exact replica of what the players will wear.

I'll stick with my 80s replica shirt thanks.
