In the last week Macron released images of Millwall’s upcoming home and away kits for the new season
I know Millwall aren’t exactly known for droves of fans in home kits, but this time it was different..
If you look at the new kit you might think you’ve seen it somewhere before, and you most likely have, this being due to it using the same template as Leeds and West Ham’s training kit from last season.
To be honest I do not see a problem with this, templates are often re-used by designers, just look at West Ham’s away kit. Take that claret and blue and it was the same kit Millwall had last season, this stuff happens, but this hasn’t gone down well.
One fan saying on message board HOf “Nice to see us get the vermin’s training kit, disgrace” with other comments such as “Possibly the worst kit we’ve ever had” and “Without doubt the worst kit in my lifetime, looks like the kids designed it!”
I think the club will be battling to see a few of these. That’s the main problem, getting a club’s throwback won’t go down well. From the kit being shown this also brought up the issue “why not let fans vote on what the kit will be?” This was done by Millwall to celebrate their 125th anniversary, letting the fans choose what will be the home colours, a kit was picked (one of the best in recent years) and this was a rousing success with apparently 15,000 being sold.
A great feat for such a club. But fans voting can also mean a turn for the worst.
If anyone has seen Crystal Palace’s badge choices, no matter what is voted in it will be bad after using a voting poll.
At least Lions fans picked a good one. Plus not matter what people think about the new kits its not as bad as the ghastly Barcelona wannabe kit from Palace.
I don’t mind the kits to be honest, but can see why Lions fans are disappointed, I mean, I’m sure Charlton fans would love a kit the same design as a Millwall kit from last season, but Millwall fans don’t usually buy shirts.
In all honesty, the only way ‘Wall fans would buy a new shirt is if it came with a horse or crocodile on it, and came in a wide range of colours, but sadly that isn’t the case but it is defiantly not the worst kit we’ve ever had.
I’m sure the bright green and white striped kit from the 03/04 season may be close to claiming that prize. The kit is not that bad, and if you don’t like it, you don’t have to wear it.
To be honest along as the team are winning, does it really matter what the kit their wearing is? On the bright side, less then 40 days to go till the first competitive game of the season.
