As soon as I saw the interview with Luke Roper when he talked about the 88-90 kits being his favorites I feared the worst. I am with the others that say Aston Villa’s shirt should have blue sleeves. This looks like something Burnley would wear.
Having said all that, it could be worse.
I am not a massive fan of the home shirt. There isn’t enough blue for my liking, we are claret and blue not claret and darker claret. I’m sure we will get used to it though. Having 32 red all over the front makes everything much worse but I think that’s just the way football is with sponsorship. For £50 I think I will save my money but each to their own.. I will still be wearing my “champions of Europe” shirt for home games next season
It's about time there has been a deviation from the traditional look, it's always good to change for a season or two and go back to the old look. What's the point in bringing out new kits every season if they all look the same?
As was mentioned earlier, it's basically a revamp of the Le Coq Sportif kit from circa 1983-85. I'm unlikely to buy one as I'm not mad on replica shirts, especially the modern polyester-type things. Do prefer a retro kit in cotton myself.
