Our kit looks miles better when we wear red shorts.

Maybe thats what NW meant when he said theres one or two problems at the club. Hummel has been loads better than adidas but didnt we let the tea lady pick the kit design s couple years back?

We should be all in red for the rest of the season.. it's totally psychological.

Among the top 70 teams in English men’s football from 1947 to 2002, teams wearing red tended to win matches more often than teams wearing other colours.

When we get angry, our faces tend to get redder because they’re flushed with blood, and when we’re fearful they get paler as the blood drains away. this long experience of red and anger has made it intimidating to play against a team wearing red.

Researchers have looked at heart rates and the results of strength tests, between competitors wearing red and blue.. both of which were higher when someone was wearing red than when they were wearing blue. Perhaps simply wearing red is enough to make us readier to fight?

I have also seen that report newidion. Makes sense to me but it doesn't explain that our faces go red when we are embarrassed also. :) (y)

Bill Shankly changed Liverpool’s kit to all red. The red on green grass according to the great man made the players look bigger.

The all red kit reminds me is Bolo Zenden scoring v Roma and Jimmy Floyd scoring a world class free kick v Manchester City.
I agree, but Bolo Zenden didn't score against Roma 😉

Have a word with the club?

Make it win-win, tell them we'll buy up the remaining stock of white ones online if they agree to switch to red.

They make money getting rid of stock, we get our own way.

I have often though more effort should be made to co-ordinate the design and colouring of the two (and occasionally three) season kits.

i.e. So if you had a red/white home, a black/blue away and a white/blue third, the socks, shorts and shirts design and colour match up, so you could mix and match and come up with a multitude of combinations.

Or is there a ruling whereby we register our colours for the season and unless there's a clash that's it?

I doubt it makes any difference at all. It's about the players, the tactics and a few other things. The colour of the kit it's not!
