    Very sexy (ours not the neck slicers) looks both cheap and classy at the same time, a very difficult look to pull off.

    Seems like someone reminded Pozzbury we play in fooking GOLD not yellow or fluorescent pi$$ and are a tricoloured team. We're not called 'the Yellow boys' are we? Great to see the gold back.

    Colombia and Brazil consistantly have superb kits - so why cant we? Their secret is mixing yellow/golden yellow with 2 other colours for shorts and socks. I dont know why we cant do that too.

    Announce red shorts/black socks AND black shorts/red socks. Who cares if we're being run like Mobutu's Zaire cerca 1990 if we play in gold with 2 different colours for shorts and socks. I'd never call Scott Duxbury a charlatan ever again!!

    Nope, that was the plan that failed dismally in 2019/20

    The Kelme training kit has been really nice, and comes without the shyte sponsor.

    It’s been a good partnership. Hope we stick with them.

    I always liked the black shorts and red socks years.

    I like it but am not sure about the letterimg all over. Is Cazehraa Saudi for "behead the women infidels"?

    Not bad, a bit plain.
    I preferred the black and yellow striped kit from a few seasons ago.

    Surely not... We've not had red shorts once under Pozzo and the kit has far more black on it than red, including the sponsor, Kelme logos etc.

    Red shorts will look out of place and awful, as they always have.

    Apparently so, overheard Richard Johnson say so this evening at an u23 game.

    The final straw. Time to find a new club.

    Best home kit we’ve had since 14/15 but doesn’t beat that one.

    Not for me. Green is not a football shirt colour. All white with yellow/black/red trim or the AC Milan-style shirt from the late 90s.

    If we play with the same spirit and work ethic of the 99' squad (pre PL) we should do very well next season. ;)

    Love the new shirt. Nice not to have huge swathes of black stripes/hoops across it. Like the subtle lightning bolt patterns (as long as they are still subtle up close!).

    Red shorts with it and I may have to buy a replica football kit like the man-child I am.

    Our 1st 4 promotions to the PL (inc 2 play off final victories), 82/83 top flight runners up, 83/84 uefa cup and FA cup runs will always be tarnished by our red shorts.....said no one ever!!

    Anything good done by Watford FC whilst wearing red shorts is absolutely tainted by the sheer embarrassment of being seen wearing the hideous, unforgivable combination of yellow and red.

    Rumours are that the third strip will be black and white stripes. What with it being one hundred years at the gravel pit.

    I'm willing to give red shorts a go. It could work if it's not a bright McDonalds red.

    The only thing that will stop it from being 10/10 repulsive is if the socks are at least yellow.

    If the socks are red as well I'm off.

    Beautiful. Fond memories of wearing this as a kid and getting the p**s ripped out of me by friends that supported Utd, Liverpool etc…

    Embarrassing that it was marketed as the centenary kit at the time.

    If we get promoted, Nath has to wear red shorts throughout the summer break.

    Should be all white. The colour of surrender. Would suit our hierarchy, coaches and players well.

    As @Burnsy said very early on, it's basically a slightly zhuzhed-up version of our current away kit in yellow. It would be pretty decent, if it wasn't for the lazy porting of the clunky, unnecessary diagonal bars around the obliques. Never ceases to amaze me how unable kit designers are to actually deliver a clean, 'classic' style kit, even when that is supposedly the desired vibe.

    As @NathWFC has already started crusading on, if it's red shorts we'll probably end up being awarded a Derby-style points deduction for having rite proper kunts in charge and going down with a record minus points total at the end of next season. And we'll deserve it. Why is almost everyone else's taste terrible? A vital question.

    You're probably one of the people I've had this exact discussion with before, with many impassioned and genius points laid out on my part, so let's just all act like it played out again here and save ourselves some time ;)

    Having reached sixty, I know feel for the first time in 48 years that I am now officially immune from the embarrassment of attending matches in a current club shirt. So I think I will buy one for next season.

    Do they still sell the badge separately? I only ask as I will get it, so my mum can sew it on at the same time she puts my name tag in the neckline.

    Leventhal stating that our sponsorship deal that was worth £5m last season and would have been worth £6m this season had we stayed up - is contractually now worth £1m for the forthcoming season.

    EFL rules mean that the Crypto thing on the sleeve has been dropped too and the club are finalising a ‘back of shirt’ sponsor, and hinting it could be someone who may step into sponsoring the front of the shirt should the ban on betting companies come in 12 months time.
