Pre-Season 2022/23

Post by Degz »

Apparently we play Quins at the Stoop on Friday September 2nd, return fixture from last year.

I was hoping the season would start a bit sooner than last year. Not a huge fan of the league continuing into the middle of June.

This calendar is here to stay unfortunately, although this next season may start a week earlier than the season just gone.

Was hoping there'd be a game weekend I'm home in August (20th) to take the kids to, doesn't look likely.

Presumably next year will start a couple weeks earlier to make room for the world cup, or will it just hold off completely until after?

That could be very nice. Good shades of blue and navy, has a collar too. A bit of white or gold would be nice.

Hopefully adidas sort out their stock too. Half the stuff wasn’t available at all on lifestyle sports after Xmas this year.

Only lifestyle? What about the rest of it? I get depressed just driving past it. Well... Driving into it. Past it is a relief

Are those club crests inlayed into the torso of the new jersey?

Reminds me of this jersey, which was one of my faves (granted it was only a training jersey)

The Dark Green top looks a bit 'Munster' to me, I don't know why. Maybe they had something like it in the recent past. Anyway, that's but me right off :lol:

I like it but went for last year's at half the price.

Not wanting to wait was a big part of that though.

Think that new jersey is the dogs bol*ix to be honest.

Definitely the best offering from Adidas so far. IMO of course.

If the socks were yellow hooped instead of white they would have nailed the full kit!

The only complaint I have, and its entirely pettifogging, is that I would have loved to see the Adidas Originals trefoil logo used. Otherwise, a splendid piece of gear!
