Miami starts play in 2020, which is technically next year. 

Fair enough......but then we haven't seen Nashville's graphics yet and they are to play "next year" as well. They could very well bring down the whole league.ūüėč

Still think metallic gold and dark green is a bit too drab for Portland! My kingdom for neither that nor highlighter green.

Yeah, I can see why you, and probably some others feel that way about the metallic/brassy gold. Athletic gold would offer more contrast and would be a bit brighter. Personally I think the metallic/brassy gold is the perfect accent color for them, though, and I think most other Timbers fans agree. The brassy gold paired with the dark green is a more distinctive color scheme and is more in line with what the original NASL Timbers used. I think they’ve been smart to transition to the gold and a more retro-inspired aesthetic overall. And for reference, here’s the gold color that ColorWerx (now TruColor) has for the original NASL Timbers:

Definitely a bit more golden than athletic gold, and pretty close (maybe even the same) to what the club is using now:

It definitely looks better on the jerseys; that sort of metallic-ness never shows up ideally in digital graphic form anyway (see also Philadelphia Union, no matter what shade they've used in their crest).

 

Or I'll take my unpopular MLS color opinions to the grave with me. Portland needs athletic gold! New England needs a healthy dose of red as a secondary color! Too much light blue everywhere!

Definitely agree with you there. Their last two primary kits before the current one were steps in the right direction, and I didn’t even mind the red-heavy secondary kits from 2015/16 and 2017/18, either.

My random thought of the day is how MLS reminds me of Serie A. Two teams with sky blue, a red/black stripe team, a blue/black stripe team, a purple team, and a maroon team.

Not exactly "metallic", but I do have the new color palette:

 

PortlandTimbers_FRC01_2019-9999_SOLCOA_S

 

(Not 100% certain on the color descriptions/names.)

 

...as opposed to the former NASL palette:

 

PortlandTimbers_FRC01_1975-1982_SOLCOA_S

 

These are confirmed colors; for those who don't know me, all of the Hex and RGB values I put up on my site correspond with current PANTONE Digital standards.

 

That older palette was taken from an official Timbers logo sheet I obtained a few years back. As official as it gets.

That‚Äôs good to know, both about the new color palette and the former NASL palette. Seeing both of the golds there, I‚Äôm¬†surprised the new official gold color is that much darker than the NASL gold. As far as the color names/descriptions go, I‚Äôm pretty sure the green will¬†still be called¬†‚ÄúPonderosa Green‚ÄĚ. For the¬†gold, they‚Äôve referred to it¬†as ‚ÄúRavens Gold‚ÄĚ with their past two kit releases, so that‚Äôs likely what they‚Äôre calling it still.

Leak of the new Toronto home shirt:

toronto-fc-2019-2020-home-kit-%25282%252

I like the henley collar, but the rest is exceedingly plain and frankly boring IMO.

That's not how to Ajax,New England. That's definitely not how to Ajax. The broad centre stripe is a classic footy motif... but this is drab. Would look much better in the actual Ajax colour scheme actually.

Southampton did this in the 80s (then repeated it last year for their primary kit), and it was truly wonderful:

I've always been partial to the scheme Portland used on that first third kit. Maybe a little more athletic gold than yellow, but I prefer the brighter colors here to what they've done since.

That Southampton kit is iconic. On the top 10 PL kits of all time. And indeed a great example of how to Ajax properly

Here’s a mockup of what the full Toronto primary could look like:

Toronto's is pretty alright. Wish they had done some sublimation or something instead of just solid red but it's pretty alright as is.
