  1. Has nobody noticed that teams now have sleeve sponsors like the Premier League! When did this decision happen?!
  2. I don't know any European die hard fan who actively says 'oh we're playing the blues today or the gunner's'. Nicknames such as those are only used in songs sung at the game or to shout out like 'come on you reds' but that's not the name of the team at all no and in no way comparable to the nickname mascot naming system in the states. It's a culture clash at the end of the day I see on here all the time people moan about the addidas stripes, but most Europeans love the 3 stripes! It's a major part of fashion especially in cities like Liverpool. It doesn't detract at all in many occasions makes a kit better. I always loved for example how on Spain's old away or Argentina's how the stripes are the flag. The prem patches and font are like the NFL shield there is a pride to wearing them as it's one of the best leagues in the world and unlike the leagues in the States you can actually get relegated from our leagues so certain teams like to boast of the top status. The club colours & crest are vizable and make most teams instantly recognizable. For example the all red of Liverpool the red white and black of Man u or the Red and Blue stripes of Barca. People know those look instantly the world over. As you say your a casual fan I'm a die hard 20 year season ticket holder from another continent. Some things don't translate over state side, however US football (soccer) would do better to follow Europe and the rest of the world than the other US sports as this global sport is a different animal.
  3. Well because it's not part of the sports culture. Even though it's an American tradition to add mascot name for us Europeans the city name is all that matters as that's who the team represent. Take the raiders insert LA Oakland now Las Vegas in front and puts focus on the mascot name which is what we find silly and childish tbh. I like it in American sports but for the worlds game keep the city name the focus!
  4. Love everything about this idea cant wait to see it but as a scouser can i suggest Liverpool be liverpool liverbirds as for our team not to have a liverbird would be a crime
  5. I agree they all use a template to a point but that Celtic and our away are totally different in design terms other than the similar sleeves. For example Adidas took the Spain away pattern and now its on Orlando's and they will put it on another 20 teams kits. However with NB that front pattern is only on our away no other kit same with the Porto blue away they did its unique to them. It really isn't that hard to design unique kits for 23 teams! All you need to do is get 23 skilled local graphic designers from each teams area to design a pattern etc. They have teams of people in one of the biggest companies in the world with a year to design. If you gave me or anyone on here even a month to design 23 kits for $ we could all do it I would imagine. It comes down to laziness and greed. Templates are cheaper and world football has become so big is becoming more like a two horse race between Nike and Adidas as to who makes the most teams kits. It's a shame because they should realize that the best kits are unique such as the Nigeria one this last world cup people went nuts for it for good reason.
  6. Really disappointed in Orlando's home kit it's very similar to the home from the first mls year! Again another Adidas template kit! Hope the league goes with NB as a Liverpool fan think they make great kits and our an American company would be good to have original kits for MLS
  7. Okay thanks, hoping we don't go with white shorts! However more white on the kit is welcome. Hope they add the new flag of Orlando on the kit like Portland do! Also hope they add a cool pattern to the background of the kit aka Adidas kits of the 90's or maybe lake/fountain pattern given link to the city.
  8. Anyone have any info on the new Orlando City home kit? I haven't seen or heard anything?!
  9. As someone who lived in Orlando I would say the city has great potential to support a team but has to have the right look feel. Orlando has a chip on its shoulder wants to be taken seriously as a big city rival to Miami not just a tourist town. Its why Orlando city have been so successful they got everything right the colors the name the fan engagement everything. This AAF team should stay clear of mascots that have nothing to do with the city or look too minor league. Stick to the colors of the flag of the city blue white yellow and call the team something like Orlando SOL play off the Florida Spanish history shape the logo as an O styled as a Spanish Sun thing that would work well.
  10. For Orlando as a fan its always all purple at home, as for the away more subtle rainbow flag but good idea. Another Idea would be a red away to commemorate our first usl title and first kit that was red good concepts though
  11. your logo looks fantastic! However it's not a football logo. It would look odd of a jersey. Football is a sport that blends well with teams having crests so thing there current does the job well. However they could use this for merch or an alternate because it's really cool.
  12. I love your designs but do you have to use your name with the number 14 on the scum's kit's as a Liverpool our captin is Jordan Henderson same name and number. Makes my eyes bleed seeing this name number on that kit lol
  13. Well the first was original at the time France won a euro in it and it meant something to the French then when they hosted the world cup in 98 they decided to pay homage to that kit but there was nearly a 20 year gap between them and then they won the world cup so would say that is an iconic football design now. Nike has lost its edge bit time adidas and puma are the best for football kits as of right now. Being a LFC fan new balance are getting better all the time and there porto stuff is great would love them to take over MLS tbh.
  14. When you look at the colours round the NFL most of the primary colours are over used this is unique and Cleveland uses orange allot this is brown dark red and grey so only brown is similar. Nothing wrong with two teams wearing same colour especially when accents are different. If they took the field in the uniforms I designed they wouldn't look anything like the Browns and would actually have a QB in Bortles unlike them .
