“We’ve got more kits than strikers” Fan reaction to the new canary yellow kit is predictably mixed
By Harry Hotspur -

The latest Tottenham Hotspur Football Club kit is out and you would be forgiven for thinking we’d been sold a lemon. My main concern is that I’m struggling to see who the demographic for such a garment might be. Young fans might like it, but it is hardly the sort of top one would wear down the pub, and older fans are definitely going to be reminded of the 1979 Arsenal shirt which this looks to be a complete ringer of, at first glance.

£70 for a t shirt, that fans are extremely unlikely to be able to wear to a game, or for that matter, to even wear while legally watching a game at home suddenly fells a tad sharp.

Most fans, in all fairness are more concerned about only having one striker on our books.

Too many kits, three new kits a season is at odds with all economic, environmental considerations and any notion of credibility. Then again, what does present day football have anything to do with that?! 😂

A large ‘elite’ shirt with Alderweireld on the back, which is made with
VaporKnit technology (otherwise know as polyester) will only cost us plebs £115. Cheap at half the pri…………….no wait…….. it would still be expensive at half the price.

I’ve just looked at Toffs shirts (I’ve no affiliation of any sort whatsoever); Between £37 & £50, any name (max 12 letters) add a fiver. All materials sourced in GB, all shirts made in GB. Some of the older styles made from heavy drill 100% cotton.

If I was a footy shirt wearer I know where I’d be shopping, no brainer. Profoundest apologies for the contextually relevant commercial.

It’s not the gear the team wear is it. It’s a thinner, cheaper inferior sweatshop version straight outta da Philippines, innit… 😂

I love the yellow. I’ve got a 70s cotton one. We did well in Europe in yellow back in the then

Identikit Nike kits, no originality, but that’s the price for the big money from shirt deals. The “elite” first team top costs £100. Probably costs less than a tenner to make. But as somebody is bound to say you don’t have to buy it. I dislike those caps on the shoulder.

Nike are good at making running shoes, but their football kits are really very second rate. Adidas and Puma do better kits. Even Under Armor are nicer!

Well, actually it should be gold not yellow but I guess its much for muchness…the gold should be a minimal piece, stripe or collar for example, not the entire kit!
