Why not use the the new shirt and the one we have now as examples as well? The new shirt has just about as much yellow in it as our current badge and that's not very much. The yellow isn't a dominant element in the new design...not in the least. As for these shirts. I like the blue and white Autoglass shirt better, but to be honest, it's one of my all time favourites.

I find it quite interesting that you see people who liked the centenary shirt(gold trimmings, for cryin' out loud!) but complain about a bit of yellow on the new shirt.

But to answer your question...out of the examples presented, I prefer the blue and white shirt, but I wouldn't say a shirt with yellow is necessarily always the worse choice. Depends on the design.

It's not the kind of orange a Dutch person like myself would like to see, no.

On the other hand, years ago research was done into the effects of colour. The conclusion was that for a goalkeeper bright yellow would inadvertedly cause an opponent to aim the ball towards the goalkeeper, instead of past the keeper. Who knows this kind of orange has the same effect....

There you go, the new shirt has sh*tloads more Yellow than the present day home shirt.

Orange has the same effect - when I was at an England - Holland game it was surprising how many things were aimed at people in orange.

Just look at Riise's hair

"We''re the boys in blue and white" ...

... not the boys in blue and white with a little touch of yellow.

Yellow is fine for the away kit, but that's it.

Unlike the other Autoglass example (I've got them both), this is a class shirt:

Everything is relative Coco. Ofcourse the new shirt has more yellow in it...main reason being that there isn't any on the current shirt apart from the club badge. icon_rolleyes.gif

You're really making a big fuss about little yellow stripes that are hardly even noticable. Little trimmings on the sleeves and a little stripe in the collar. At the stadium you won't even be able to see the yellow on the players' shirts for most of the game...that's how small the amount of yellow is on the shirt and on television I doubt you can see it at all apart from closeups.

Just as an example, I did a quick (very rough) photoshopjob and took away the yellow from the new shirt apart from the club badge. Does it look significantly different?

Those of you who complain about the yellow on the new shirt...do you complain about the amount yellow on the club crest? There's a bigger percentage of yellow on the club crest than there's on the shirt and that's the CLUB CREST for crying out loud. Shirts come and go, but that thing doesn't change every two years(hopefully).

It 's not just about the yellow though - it's that collar that makes the shirt look less classy. Funny thing is, Franco Zola looked amazing in the Autoglass shirt with the white collar. Which says everything about Franco and f.a. about the shirt.

As I side issue, the biggest waste of space shirt I own is the one with Emirates plastered all over the front of it.

Finally something we can agree on. For some reason it doesn't look as bad when it's worn by a player instead of a picture with just the shirt, though. 317.gif

The 2001-2003 homeshirt? The one with the collar? I'm not too fond of the collar either, but it's the only Chelsea replica shirt I own at the moment, so I'm not complaining. Besides...there are far worse looking home shirts than that one. Apart from the collar, it's a very nice looking shirt. Elegant and stylish. I wouldn't mind if it had the same kind of collar as the white 2001 awayshirt, though. That was a nice looking shirt.

I wish they'd given Liverpool our new shirt's design and vice versa. I reckon their new design would look goodin blue and Liverpool has a history of dodgy collars on their shirts, so it would have suited them well.

It's not so much the shirt, well ok it's not the shirt at all - it's THAT WORD, and it's for this reason alone that I only ever wear that particular shirt under something else, and even then only rarely.

Edit: I've got that white away shirt as well, at least I think it's the same shirt - one thing about me is that I'm, how shall I say, chronologically dyslexic - no kidding, you ask me what happened in any particular year and I haven't got a clue. I don't even know what year I got married, for instance, or the year I moved to my present address. I know we won the League in 1955 (before I was born), but I really do have to check back to get the right year for our recent couple of titles. And as for getting things in order ... you'll have guessed by now I was crap at history. I mean, I knew what happened, and could usually understand WHY it happened, but when it happened was more often than not another matter entirely.

I prefer not to see yellow on the home kit, though I don't hate it per say. But the new kit is bollox, have addidas just empolyed the old Umbro designer????

We should just keep the centenary kit from now till the next hundred year anniversary.

That match you attended must have been , oooh, 1996, let's say? Us Dutch usually want to dispell the myth that we are a bunch of louts, so we overreact and ever so politely give the ball back to the opponent, and even let them score a few goals. ball.gif
