2015-16 Soccer Kits and News

Odd that the hoops don't go around the entire jersey? Previous iterations of the bumblebee did.

That'll be due to it being a 'European' shirt - UEFA rules state that striped/hooped shirts have to have a plain panel on the back to aid number legibility.

Meanwhile, Walsall have unveiled their new togs...

The away shirt comes in a 6XL, which based on Errea sizing makes it closer to a 5XL...

If find this actually wrong. If anything a club that represents any sport or fitness activity should be encouraging obese people to lose weight and not pandering to thier size. Stop making shirts that size and help them exercise to lose weight.
This is an incredibly stupid thing to say.

Not at all. Sportswear manufacturers should be promoting a healthier lifestyle. Not lets make our shirts bigger for the obese. Defeats the object of promoting their sportswear range on the fitness side. It's more incredibly stupid a sporting firm to promote obesity.
But also some folks are just big. Or cat exercise. Or have medial ailments. Or whatever. People come in different shapes. They're still allowed to support their teams. I'm not a big dude myself, but I'm also not a pro athlete.

There are a lot of big folks in America for reasons way behind "get out and exercise fatty." Our cheapest food is unhealthy. We send parents to jail if their kids play outside alone so they instead stare at iPads all day. Our communities are built to encourage all travel by car instead of walking. The US isn't super awesome at public health and it shows.

And the individual also has a responsibility to look after their own health. Instead of waiting for your country to promote it maybe try to do something for yourself and look after your own health. Thats the problem too many people want to be spoon fed and have everything done for them. As I have said any sports wear manufacturer should be promoting a better health and lifestyle in their range and not pandering to obese by producing oversize shirts. May come across as harsh and it may hit a few nerves but considering their is a whole generation of people who are obese and not just through medical reasons but due to sheer laziness. Then why should the sportswear companies pander to the overweight.

It doesn't come across as harsh, it comes across as totally ignorant.

I'll just use myself as an example. I'm a relatively large guy, but I've always prided myself on being a pretty active. I started on my college rugby team, put in over 100 days a winter snowboarding (most winters), am on a mountain bike or am out hiking with my dog nearly every day, and do most everything I can to keep my diet low in fat and simple carbs. I have friends that are rail thin that are practically begging me for a break when we go out and do something active. Yet despite all that, I've NEVER, even at my absolute thinnest, been able to comfortably squeeze myself into an Adidas XL jersey. As DG mentioned, they're WAY too narrow and usually too short as well. I settle most times for replicas that are double X (which usually fit like a tent on me, but whatever). I don't have this problem with any other manufacturer, either. I can usually comfortably fit into a Nike NFL jersey that's a size large.

There are a TON of issues other than just being unmotivated and lazy that lead to someone being big. Sometimes it's just a crappy body size. Sometimes it's a crappy manufacturer (which Adidas most certainly is).

Also, I'll add this to the you don't know what you're talking about category. I have a pretty close friend who is just a naturally big girl. She's probably close to 250 pounds, but she's one of the most active people I've ever met. Just last month she completed a half marathon with an extremely impressive time.

Let me ask you this. If you entered a marathon tomorrow, could your "skinny" ass even complete it?

^ Did you really have to rehash an argument from over a week ago? Lets try to stay on topic please, and not let this argument derail the thread any more than it nearly did when it started.

Not biting to the above. I have served my sentence. Everything I have said I stick by even if people cant abide by it or become offended by it. I don't really care.

Just for the record I have competed in the London Marathon and completed it

Southend United:

Is this the new Nike teamwear? I really hope so. It probably won't be sold in the States.

Watched the Barca - Man U friendly yesterday, and I have to say, I'm not feeling Barca's new kit on the field. When looking at the players from a side view, the yellow on their socks makes it look like the white players aren't even wearing socks or shin guards, which was pretty trippy. And also from that view, they look like their normal, blue jersey selves, albeit with red shorts, but then when you see them from any other angle, you notice how heavy on red the kit is from jersey to shorts, and that the socks are blue.

On another uniform note from that match, was a lil funny that Man U was looking like Real Madrid vs. Barca.

I can't seem to find a search button on the forum, so forgive me if this is old news, but in France's Ligue 2 we have some new club logos.

First of all newly promoted FC Bourg-Péronnas (FCBP) have changed their name to FC Bourg-en-Bresse Péronnas 01 (Bourg-en-Bresse) for their first season in the professional leagues.

Union Sportive Créteil-Lusitanos (Créteil) have slightly changed their crest.

Stade Lavallois Mayenne Football Club (Laval) modernized for this upcoming season.

Celtic's away (or is it the third?) kit looks a lot like Spurs' away kit.

That Spurs shirt is a fake, according to Footy Headlines. They are usually very accurate in their leaks and information, so I tend to believe it.

Maybe they are right but as Spurs training kit is all purple this year it seems a bit strange that they use the same colour combo as a third kit if it is used in the training kit colour. Not sure if Spurs have done that before but I can't recall it.

Edit: Just checked the training kit on the site and they are using all the colours in training this year by the looks of it. Maybe it could well be purple.

Makes sense. It looks pretty close to their alternate colorwise.

Why do Nike and Adidas have the idea of this shorts into socks gradient the same year?

I noticed during the Women's World Cup that both big manufacturers were pushing gradient socks. All the allegedly cutting-edge designers in the world still manage to be painfully derivative always.
