Hummel would be nice, but it would be harsh to drop Puma after a championship* winning season

Think we're still contacted to Puma for next season aren't we? The two Puma templates for next season are the one Leggett's posted (and I think that's a likely candidate FWIW) and this one, probably with white trim, you'd assume:

I love a bat shit, colourful, crazy, abnormal away kit.
Yet much prefer tradition home kits.

In truth I have no idea.

I just remember our kits being unique in the 90s. That maybe my childhood rose tinted specs or just not having the same access to view football across the globe.

Like I donít remember any other team having the round neck collar we had in 95 with Mizuno. Even the other clubs with Mizuno kits.

Other clubs definitely had that mental Mizuno goalkeeper kit we had but aside from that I think you're right. Think we've had templates since 2003 really when we moved from that DGI to Strikeforce / Lonsdale

Reckon the tourism industry dying on its arse through lockdown will mean we'll be sporting a new sponsor when Town eventually unveil the new kit?

Loads of lovely new kits about, can't be arsed to link but go check FSC, the Borussia Monchengladbach Puma away shirt is tasty and I'd be happy with a jazzier coloured version!

Worst collars were the Div 2 winning home shirt (at least for those of us larger of neck). The rest of the shirt was great, and the away shirt our best ever (imo).

There's a design that often emerges on eBay which is the 95-96 design with a 94-95 collar. Much nicer that the final design they went with but it was a bit different at the time.

It will be one of these four: Final, Final Graphic, Goal or Cup. These are Puma's 20-21 templates. They're OK, but every bit as imaginative as the template names suggest.

I did notice that we are no longer listed as one of Genesis sports (Puma's exclusive kit suppliers) pro clubs, so next seasons kit might not be a puma kit.

Final Graphic or Final Stadium, I'd imagine we'll like us to go for. Final Stadium would be apt and quite fitting if we finally get the go ahead on the stadium ownership.

With the exception of the third shirt (which is still on there), our shirts for the 2019/20 season did not appear on the Puma Teamwear site - so hopefully this is not the range we have chosen from!

You're right there is usually a season's lag before the templates used for pro clubs are on teamwear sites but I was going on the basis that several other clubs around our level seem to have Final or Goal kits this season. We'll find out soon enough

On a wider issue, I assume any new kit will not be announced until the shop is open again to sell it, has any indication been given when that might be, I have a 7 year old getting evermore impatient that her third kit shirt has not been dispatched yet.

I would love a revisit of the 2010 kit (not the fated white kit) but that white trim and cut of the kit was nice. It was adidas but Puma could do something similar.

I am a little disappointed at the lack of any design elements. Some subtle tonal changes in the kit would've been nice. Shame about the white flags. Didn't our blue away 2012 kit in the PdC season have similar. But with a yellow panel?  :hmmm:

My disdain for plain templated kits is probably well known by now.

That kit is so generic. Also, red and white is a fairly commonly used colour combination in football, could we not just have a bit of green trim to just add a little something a bit unique.

It's mainly red with white bits - ticks all the boxes for me. Assuming there are white shorts and red socks to go with it that'll do me. I'm not going to get too upset over a little tag line that no one will even notice when they wear the shirts in a game.

I just love the annual "It looks just like Bristol City" comments...like the first Swallow of Summer or the annual Steve Lomas sighting. It would be quite a challenge to design a kit which looked nothing liked Bristol City's given that our colours are the same ;)

Personally, I think it's ridiculous and actually a bit tacky that every club now changes its kit every single season. I think they would sell just as many replicas if not more, if they changed it every other season like they used to until a few years ago.

I agree that changing kits on an annual basis is unnecessary.

No, I didn't say banned at all.

There is a wider point which is not rocket science.  It may be that sizing has changed as suggested earlier but, just speaking personally, I am carrying some timber and still get in XL sized apparel.  If the need for such extreme sizes has increased it potentially says a lot about the health of the nation (or at least about the economic social groups who choose to purchase replica shirts).

RE: Imagine Cruising.

I have no idea how they're doing through all of this but, for our side of things, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they had already paid up so to speak. I doubt they're the most lucrative of sponsorship deals either.

Flybe were still on Exeter City shirts during the Play-Offs and they ceased operations in March.

Personally think the kit is boring, looks to me like no thought has gone into it - the purple kit last season showed what good a decent kit can do to generate some interest.

If you want to help the club with cashflow, shirts are not the way to do it, they really don't make a huge amount of money from shirt sales with the deal they are in with Puma, as it the case with most clubs unless you are a top Premier league side..  If you want to help out with cashflow then ST's/tickets/hospitality/sponsorship is the way to go..

Post by: DV Canio on Saturday, July 11, 2020, 17:13:01
Whilst, Iím not sure I agree with the comment myself. One could argue that having been in the bottom 2 tiers for 20 years is quite stagnant.

I mean in context in that 20 years the club has been through so many different regimes, so weíve had false starts, short term upward trajectory and come down with a crash several times.

On the other hand, look at how many clubs have gone past us in the bottom two divisions to at least get to the Championship. Yeovil, Colchester, Southend, Bournemouth, Huddersfield, Swansea, Brighton, Wigan - probably Oxford too!!

Naturally, youíve seen plenty go back the other way - including some of the ones mentioned above!!

I think it depends how long term you want to look at the football club. Certainly based purely on league position we are no better off now than we were 20 years ago.


Title: Re: New Kits for 2020/21 season
Post by: JBZ on Saturday, July 11, 2020, 17:51:16
Your view on whether the club has stagnated must depend on whether you consider that it should be in the championship.  Realistically, it appears that the club has just found its place in the pyramid. 

As I understand it, the second Di Canio season was ultimately unsustainable and reaching the championship will depend on an owner who is willing to wear a loss position each season. 

A number of clubs seem to have an owner who, for whatever reason, is willing to operate a club on that basis.  Presumably, STFC has not been able to attract anyone who is willing to splash the cash (and actually has the money to do so).

I had understood that LP has sought to run the club on the basis that it is 'sustainable'.  However, the byproduct of that appears to be that for a club of STFC's size/resources, championship football is likely to be difficult to achieve.

If the fallout from COVID-19 is as forecast, let's hope STFC are still fulfilling EFL fixtures next season.

Whilst, Iím not sure I agree with the comment myself. One could argue that having been in the bottom 2 tiers for 20 years is quite stagnant.
But read the comment again..."Continues to stagnate"....I would the agree that the Club has stagnated for a large part of the last 20 years but how can anyone say it is continuing to stagnate when...

We've just won the league
Have a squad that (current Covid related uncertainty notwithstanding) has every chance of challenging in L1 next season
Most fans would agree that the Club has been revitalised (13,000+ crowd v Exeter)
We have our best manager in many years

That makes the statement 'continues to stagnate' totally bizarre.

I guess it depends what you are comparing it to.

All those things you said above are true but on a really basic level all those things leave us in the third tier. 20 years ago we were in the third tier.  On that basis we havenít progressed in 20 years...which you could argue is grounds for the comment Ďcontinues to stagnateí

The same person said he hopes we have cash flow issues so donít think thereís any point thinking rationally about it.

But right now, all the evidence suggests that the Club is on an upward curve and that's all that matters - not what's gone on in the last 20 years - The hear and now is the only thing that Wellens/Jewell/Power/players/the fans can do anything about...and right now (Covid cluster fuck and all the unknowns and intangibles that go with it aside), the Club is looking better than it has for a long time and can't be described as 'continuing to stagnate' at this point in time.

I think it's common ground that, taking a short term view, the club is on the up - literally.  But, the long term view might be slightly different. 

At the end of the day, your views on what constitutes stagnation must depend on your own personal expectations.

There will be a large proportion of supporters who will say that the club should be able to return to being a fairly successful championship club, as per the 1990s.  However, some might say that the business of football has moved on and past performance is now of little or no relevance.  Recent history would suggest that this is the case.

Something is obviously happening with the furloughed staff as our little lasses purple shirt turned up yesterday, thankfully as it's her first I can't get her out of it!

Re Puma sizing thought I would get her a 9-10 to grow into (she's 7) fits her pretty perfectly!

Moving on from Puma's sizing and, following on from the recent call to arms, I will log on to the club shop today and buy a couple of items. Hopefully this will make a contribution to the club's coffers.

Apologies, was in a bad mood yesterday so felt best not to reply. My post was in response to someone saying we should all by the new shirt in order to fund the club. Whilst I understand this and wonít criticise the people the do. My post gave the impression that I donít attend games, I of course do, I just wonít put any additional cash into the club because i choose not too. We could be here all day discussing finances of the club under Lee Powers ownership. Now for my stagnation comment. Probably my own fault for going on that Facebook group to see everyone all of a sudden making Power out to be a hero all of a sudden. Judge me on 5 years I believe he once said. Yes weíve achieved promotion this season and of course we will celebrate that, it would have been nice if we could have done so without having to hear of more court cases/ownership battles once again. Nothing ever straightforward with our club is it? So yes while we have been promoted, weíre only back to where we started in the first place. We have a great manager, a team who with a few additions could be quite competitive in this league, a chance that finally, finally our old decrepit stadium could be bought up to date should The County Ground purchase be successful, just canít help feel the worst is yet to happen because I have a real bad feeling about the long term future while Power continues to pull the strings. Then again Iím happy to admit Iím a miserable cunt at the best of times. Apologies if I upset anyone with my earlier post.

I keep looking forlornly at the online club shop for our 2020 'Champions' coffee mug.

I think its a bit haphazard at the moment, her shirt arrived in the post Saturday morning, on Saturday afternoon got an email from the club shop suggesting it had been dispatched.

I think we should have gone down the Marseilles or Genk route, has the magic roundabout or railway works within the shirt design

If we were in a position to be able to afford the design team then I fully agree with you.

The old GWR railway logo, a King class locomotive or even the Magic Roundabout could be intertwined into the material design would be an amazing idea for me.

Absolutely, needs a company will to put design hours into it, which won't happen unless we get at least to the Championship I think.

No we launched first so their kit is the same as ours but in orange. So Yates should definitely come back here, looks much better in red
