Acutally I like the new MLS font, but the 1 and 7 are difficult to keep appart. Xavier has #17 btw

the MLS All Star Logo is way too crowded - less is more ... any why a new logo for each All Star Game, MLS Cup Anyway.... you end up with 100'000 logos in the end, very few recognise.

Didn't even notice the RSL sleeve change, but looks good non the less.

This may or may not be the best place for this ... but look at the referee in the above photo. He's wearing anthracite-colored shorts and socks with a very bright top (yellow). Last Thursday, the top was traffic-cone orange to go along with anthracite shorts and socks.

Now, I've seen most soccer refs go with black shorts and black socks with any number of colored tops (or black), though Italy dresses their referees from head to toe in a single color: nothing shouts "Pierluigi Collina" like highlighter yellow!

I still think we need a new logo. With some gold in it!

Glad to see that Chelsea is going back to collars, and if Adidas is going to insist upon three sleeve stripes, ending them halfway down is an improvement.

That's why I hate the new MLS font. Legibility is the sole primary requirement for uniform numbers, and this fails miserably. It's a terrible, terrible font that makes numbers harder to tell apart.

I agree on the collar. The white collar is a nice improvement. But I find the shortened sleeve stripes more annoying.

Meh, not bad, but I was hoping something better.

Aren't they the same as Toronto FC practice jerseys ?

Oh well see how they look in action, better than nothing.

Anyone notice Matt Reis wearing a jersey from last season last night? It was pretty obvious, as he was the only person on the pitch with legible name and number on the back. ;)

Ha, I actually meant to post something to that effect last night, but I fell asleep and forgot all about it when I woke up this morning. Obviously, MLS isn't the stickler for uniforms codes as much as the NFL, thankfully.

So that Adidas template comes with or without a collar.

So, the infant kit comes complete with a Carlsberg sponsor logo, but the baby kit doesn't.

Allllrighty.

Absolutely in love with that new Liverpool kit. Its templated rubbish of course but all the templated bits are red for a change so its a clean look. The abbreviated three stripes are a nice (probably unintentional) throwback to the first kit adidas ever did for Liverpool where they were only on the shoulders and not the sleeves.

Buono Coundol wore a jersey from last year as well last week. Sadly I didn't even notice last night

I've been pretty happy with what adidas has done with Liverpool so far, but this is a step in the wrong direction. Looks like its been pieced together randomly in the Pro Evo kit editor.

New Logo: YES!!!!

Gold with the jersey: WHY!!! The only positive thing worth mentioning about Canadian Soccer is the gold cup from 2000.

As for the shirt itself, meh. Seen better seen worse.
