I really like Man U's Pink away top this season, if it's a pastel pink similar to that ld love it!
That Man United kit is a classic. Takes after some of Juventus’ best away kits, too.
I think the Man Utd pastel pink kit is awful. Looks insipid when they play in it....doesn’t know whether to be white or pink under floodlights. If you go pink go for a strong pink.

The value in these kinds of kit is in the fashion statement amongst fans, not really how good (or bad) they look on the pitch. Given how much of a money spinner football kits are today I’d be much happier with us choosing a kit that looks class to wear (even if only subjectively) and so a load of fans buy them. More money in the bank.
Obviously, best of both worlds would be even better!
You are probably right and I am admittedly getting on and not fashion conscious in the slightest. But I would be one fan who wouldn’t buy if it became our second kit

Id quite like a weird and wonderful "cup" shirt class it as our 3rd shirt
I don't like that Man Utd one at all. Looks like someone has messed up washing a white kit.
If we were still with Nike next year I'd have been happy with these:
Both very nice, although with the exception of the half-half toning the home shirt is basically Man City’s 18/19 shirt, right? One thing I am looking forward to is having some uniqueness to our kit from next season instead of a hand-me-down.
Oh, and ConceptKits deserve credit for making the Midrepro logo monochrome: it’s way better that way.
It’s a bit rough around the edges but I had a go at mocking up a green and black striped variant of the classic Hummel kit.
That black and green one would be ace! So unlikely to happen!
Just trying to imagine it in purple and yellow, my favourite away kits in that colour, but my guess is that it would look pretty horrendous...
The purple and yellow is hideous; I love it!
Ha, those are amazing! I think if the purple and yellow one was actually halved different shades of purple vs different shades of yellow then that could work really well.
I've heard the kit is going to be similar to Denmark.. but don't know if meant old style or the new one.
That’s excellent! I’d buy it! But yes, as Razzle Dazzle says, it’s hideous!
Also, the Denmark Ladies’ team has a new kit for the World Cup that’s different to the current Mens’ team kit. So there’s even more possibilities. FWIW I think the ladies’ kit looks stellar, and could work really well in sky blue.
Particularly the arrow pointing down to say look here.
Do the club usually canvas opinion on shirt designs? I don't ever recall seeing surveys going out but wondered if they deal with any supporter's groups to try and get an idea of what might sell well?
It's hideous but with style, it's a very fine line to tread. There's definitely something to be said for a banterous, novelty football shirt design.

That's a favourite of mine from my own collection.
This choice for 09/10 is the only one I can remember
That's like voting for what type of diarrhoea you want.
Some of those Puma kits were truly soulless horrors, weren’t they? Proper mid noughties blandness. I actually seem to recall an article in the national press around maybe 2007 calling our kit (it was the one with the bits of silver/grey on the sides) the worst kit in the league. Not because it was bad exactly, just because it was so terribly bland. Mind you, this was before the template system really took hold and everyone’s kits began to look the same.
I remember that article, i think it was that kit in the choices, B wasn't it?
Might well have been. Certainly they qualify.
I get the sentiment but its deffo not the 3rd worst shirt of all time!

Coventry City have a terrible reputation for turning out in shocking clobber. This shirt, for example, is often cited as the worst ever, an affront to cotton. But why? It's not too flash; modern marketing types would probably point out how it'd go well with jeans, and that the vertical flash is very flattering for the larger gentleman (unlike, for example, the conceptual jape Kappa played on Robbie Keane a few years ago). It's because it's brown, isn't it? Well, so what?
It's not the only City kit to have been buried under a hail of brickbats. Their 1987-88 shirt was much derided at the time for unimaginatively aping the iconic Denmark strip of Mexico 86 a year after the event – Southampton and Aston Villa copped for this as well – but if you're going to plagiarise, you may as well rip off the best. The one before it – the Granada Bingo cup final effort – was pilloried for its badges-hastily-sewn-onto-cheap-tops-by-tea-lady-in-back-room scruffiness. As though that was a bad thing; the cheap park-football look is exactly the reason it looked money.
And even the T for Talbot one, while not exactly an aesthetic triumph, gets the thumbs up for working-class hero Jimmy Hill's sheer obstinacy. Hill boldly circumvented league advertising rules by working a huge sponsor's logo into the design of the kit, effectively dancing around in front of the Football League board, flicking the Vs. Right in the big fat confused face of The Man.
And now? Now the Coventry kit is very tasteful, very understated – and very boring. Which is a far bigger crime than anything that went before. And that even includes this.

It does seem a bit odd to me not to do some market research, you'd think it would be worth the outlay if they hit on an idea that had big support.
It’s interesting because a few more (typically smaller) clubs have started opening this up to fans — Morecambe’s kit for next season was the subject of a poll although despite having an interesting variety of options they then opted to ignore all of them for their final choice.
Oldham just released their Hummel kits today, wouldn’t be surprised if their something similar just sky blue and white
I’m looking forward to having a badge that isn’t just ironed though like just sport have done the last few years
Heard from my source that hummels will sign after bundesliga season has ended
Keep splashing that cash joy!
I Bloody hope these aren’t ‘bespoke’...
New Oldham kits btw..

Ehh, those are okay. Not amazing. I like the collar but the rest of it could easily be any no-brand sportswear company.
Not keen on them, then again the newish Oldham badge is dreadful which doesn't help
