  1. ^ Well, that will take some time to get used to it.... Anyways, he looks good in it. Guess all that red kind of helps.
  2. I agree. How comes you thought the Gladbach away kit is blue? When you posted the new Monaco and Gladbach kits right next to each other, it looked to me like the main colour was some kind of blue-ish green - not blue, per se (like, say, Schalke). So there might be something wrong with my display settings or the blue from Monaco sort of "carried over" to the Gladbach kit. ;D
  3. Bayern's new away kits looked quite good in some silly tournament today. My only gripe would be that I'd prefer the block in the middle to be made up of different shades of red (sort of like on the Germany kit), instead of some red and mostly dark grey tones and navy (which looks almost like black on TV - or is it?). But I can live with that. Gladbach were also sporting their now road kits. Liked them too. They don't look all that blue-ish actually, it is some kind of dark green and the other elements are a lighter cream-ish green (there must be a name for that colour).
  4. Just today I read that Köln would be having a "Heimattrikot" instead of a "Heimtrikot" this year with the Kölner Dom put somewhere on their home kit. Now I saw this and kept looking for it and let's say ... it's subtle. Third line from the bottom. Nevertheless, so far I am liking most of what I am seeing for the Bundesliga this year. Good job.
  5. Yes, it is a roundel. Which is kind of boring considering the trend as of late. Still, other than that, I really like it. It is a good mondernised logo. Only quarrel would be the "Basketball Club" at the bottom. I am not fond of that, but that's just a minor thing. So I will say: Good job, Hawks.
  6. What was the deal with the Schalke kits today? With the green stripes on blue and everything. Is that their new home kit? If so, that is rather shocking. I am talking Barca going horizontal territory here ... or is there any historical predecessor for that kind of color combination on their home kit? EDIT: I just checked and found out it was their new clash kit. I was watching the games in some bar and there the kits didn't look as dark as they actually are, hence the confusion.
  7. First of all, great concepts, all of them. Awesome work! Just my two cents on Germany: I like what you were doing here. But I would make the green kit the normal away jersey and use the black one as a third. Of course, for some time black and red away kits have been reality but I am still in favour of the traditional green one. And speaking of tradition, please use black shorts on the white home kit. It's just the way the German national team is supposed to look. But now, what with the World Cup victory and all, I am afraid the white shorts won't go anywhere soon... well they really havent worn green since 2012 euro's and that has been the only green kit since 2002, so the green is definitely a dying kit. So it will remain the third, and then in terms of the shorts, I did struggle with what shorts to what top, but I went with the fifa rules and did all black and all white. so while i respect your opinion, I'm gonna have to say no to both those ideas. Okay, I see your reasoning. Thanks for taking the time to reply and explain it to me. Spectacular designs, all of them!
  8. Quick question I am sure one of you will have an answer to: There's all sorts of regulations about uni designs, logo designs, primaries and changes/rebrands and what not - are there any rules regarding center court logos like this one here, too? What I mean is did the Pistons have to tell the NBA beforehand that "Well this will be our 50th season so can we please put a special anniversary logo center court instead of having smaller logos somewhere else?" (think NBAs 50th season) Thanks!
  9. That looks like an ugly 90s youth soccer shirt. Horrible. This looks so 90s it hurts .... which means I love it! ;D But I see that it won't go over nicely with the Gunners and their supporters.
  10. Wow. The combination of oval sponsor logo and vertical stripes combine to make those two guys on the right look like they have potbellies. What are those shirts going to look like on fans? I like what Bordeaux are doing. All of these look sharp. Didn't they have a rather crazy third last year too? Even though I have to agree that the one with vertical stripes does make it look like the players are a bit out of shape. ;D Also, I totally forgot that Contento went to Bordeaux...
  11. Very unpopular opinion, but the gradient kit is my favourite Barca kit of all time. Just imagine the outrage if this had been horizontal! ;D Not only is it not vertical stripes but it is a gradient! But I liked that design too, also the before mentioned half and half kit. Barca usually have nice designs.
  12. I cannot say I am feeling the Hawks logo. Not yet, at least. Looks to me like a knock off of that one Suns alternate. I don't think a coloured version will change that. On the other hand, I dig the uni mock ups. I agree, the colour combination is kind of brutal (just think of a lime green/volt alternate!) but I like it when teams go a bit out there and risk something - which I am seeing there. It is not completely going back to my beloved 90s madness, but it surely stands out in the league of today. For that, I give my thumbs up.
  13. Leverkusen and Bremen were wearing their new home kits today, too. I have to say Leverkusen looked really sharp. Bremen, I don't know, really. I see they are going back to the older shade of green, which is okay with me. Yet, I thought they'd be going with white shorts instead of all green. I think it would look better. What's more, today it wasn't even a necessary move as they faced Gladbach who wore all black. Oh, and that new Hoffenheim kit is interesting, to say the least. Some kind of 90s feel to it, which I like.

  15. Here's the thing: When I first saw Bayern's new home kit, I thought it looked really nice. Clean. Kind of elegant - fitting the club. Having now seen it in action I am not so convinced anymore. You could hardly make out the burgundy stripes (which I really dig as an idea!), so in the end it just looked like a plain red shirt. Maybe it'll grow on me, though. That being said, I am all with you guys, when it comes to clubs wearing their new kits already on the last two or so matchdays of the old season. It makes no sense to me. Especially in a case like Bayern's where they often win the championship and all the pictures you see from the celebrations will be them wearing a kit they had not worn all season long. I found that to be especially strange in 1998 or whenever it was, when they had the blue and red striped jerseys but all of the sudden on the last matchday when they were given the trophy they were wearing those weird new dark navy (almost black-ish looking) kits. I also thought it was strange when they wore the new kits in the Champions League final against Dortmund. It did work out in the end, though, so that is that.
