Other than it’s not just me.
Wonder if Newcastle United might’ve been better off in their claret/blue hoops against Blackburn Rovers? Maybe it’s fine 🤷♂️ #BLANEW— Kit Crimes ⚽️ (@KitCrimes) January 15, 2019
Not sure how clear it looks for the fans at Ewood tonight, but in these pics there’s a lot of white on show. pic.twitter.com/T47hCAsgVv
I think Kit Crimes and Away Kit Watch are slightly more concerned with clubs wearing symbolic and recognizable colors while avoiding kit clashes and nakedly commercial kit decisions, whereas I am slightly more concerned with players telling each other apart on the pitch than club colors. Either way, we all have a point.
Of course Chelsea wore blue away to Tottenham last night, there’s no reason why they couldn’t. But it made their decision to wear yellow at Wembley in November all the more baffling. pic.twitter.com/ZN0mD6UuaZ— Kit Crimes ⚽️ (@KitCrimes) January 9, 2019
Yes, home teams should wear home kits, and officials usually make that a priority, but that is not always possible. Some of these cases keeping home teams in their home kits are downright ridiculous.
Huddersfield’s home kit is blue and white, and that obviously does not clash with red. But, to sell jerseys, they wore yellow instead.
Obviously need to shift some of those horrible shirts https://t.co/B89t74UVir— Away Kit Watch (@awaykitwatch) January 5, 2019
