Would be nice if they got rid of all the extra slashes around the arms. Simple sash and Adidas stripes on shoulder would suffice.

Unfortunately, Adidas rarely does simple.

Yeah, the Galaxy, Fire and Impact have all been pretty good so far. The Crew, on the other hand, look like :censored:. Maybe Adidas is finally stepping their game up.

I doubt it, though. Not everyone can be Germany Marseille.

Fixed. ^_^

I love sashes on football shirts soooo much, but shouldn't there be three stars for the three MLS cups they've won?

Thats for next season, if they dont repeat as MLS Cup Champions. They wear the MLS Scudetto for this season.

Completely missed the Scudetto.

Or... Adidas outbid by upstart American firm and trying to save face. Still one of the top 5 clubs worldwide for kit sales and their biggest client in the EPL but they wouldn't pay the going rate.

I wouldn't overpay like Warrior did either. All that means is Nike will be upping the money they pay out to United, Arsenal and Barca due to the new level set by Warrior. And if they flame out of soccer like Canterbury did it'll still make adidas overpay to outfit the Reds again. I'm just wondering what the fans will have to pay to wear the new stuff. As much as I like Under Armour, they charge way too much for replica gear in relation to Nike and adidas.

Adidas signed the deal when Liverpool where consistent qualifiers for the champions league. They have already missed out for a couple of seasons and look likely to for another season. So it's fair for Adidas to ask for a lower contract number.

Yeah, this smacks more than a little of "I didn't want to date that supermodel, anyway!"

That Galaxy shirt is WAY too busy. Too much stuff going on for one shirt. It's really a shame that Adidas managed to downgrade LA's kit in the process of bringing the sash back.

I was thinking in terms of soccer, but you did bring up a good point. Nike rugby is WAY overated as far as cost. Especially their England range.

Well I don't suppose there is much call for Aris Thessaloniki shirts in the US! UA's soccer output is tiny right now.

There is a huge difference between being outbid by a rival and being outbid by an upstart. Nike outbids them, yeah time to try to save some face. But Adidas isnt going to pay man u money for Liverpool. Warrior has to outbid everyone and it may be worth it to them. But the world's #1 soccer brand doesn't stay that way by overpaying for licenses.

Same thing happens in the us for colleges. Northwestern is worth more to UA than they are to Adidas. Sure Adidas got "outbid" but they made a sound business decision.

Wait, Northwestern is a UA school now? Oh, this could get ugly very quickly. And just when they had fixed their football uniforms, for the most part.

As long as Northwestern holds their foot down there shouldn't be an issue. They already wear a design similar to Auburn so hopefully UA keeps it like that. But I would expect them to wear a newer design. But back to soccer, Fox Soccer should be using their theme not the NFL's. It was surreal watching Fox Soccer's opening graphics with NFL Football theme. Fix this before the Champions League final!
