Thursday night
Rumoured to be a more retro style than the last few, hopefully hoops
Invincibles theme commemorating the unbeaten side of 78/9
The trailer photos look a bit grey to me.
Anyone seen it?

Hoping for a more traditional feel. Really didn't like any of this season's, erm, four shirts.

Same, loved the training tops but not keen on the shirts. Talk of pink though - hopefully for the away shirt. :lol:

Good grief, I can't carry that off :lol:

The teaser shots make it look predominantly black, I'm hoping it's more white.

I'd like us to use the retro badge we had in the 80's.
Find the three crowns a bit plain.

Isn't the away shirt Green this year :wink:

We'll see tomorrow, but I believe that the Club's reorganised administration has worked really hard on generating and improving income streams and the new shirt sponsorship deal is (with perhaps the exception of the North Sea Ferries deal a few years ago) the best we have ever had and a big increase on recent years, as well as being for three year which offers some stability financially too.
As for there being too many shirts every season, I guess the great idea of a donation from every shirt sold going to Danny Houghton and a small acknowledgement to him on every shirt at least ensures that he doesn't produce another separate shirt this year.

On Jakes Point on replica shirts in the late 70's early 80's they were hard to come by and still only produced on a minimal level before Roger Waudby started the first Club shop in that portacabin. I remember we bought a knitting machine and made some FC jumpers for all our gang they were very distinctive until they started unravelling, I lost a sleeve at the Watersheddings! Knitting machines eh! How the game has changed: lol: :lol:

So what have they teased up with so far?

There is gonna be 1978-79 on it somewhere, I'm guessing maybe back of the neck.

It is gonna have Danny Houghton signature and testimonial logo at bottom of it.

We have a new sponsor in Goldthorpe Property and if you look at that picture on twitter you can just make out in the bottom left corner a lighter bit which suggests an irregular hoop.

Now, that sponsor is either really small or the black stripes are really wide. Could mean a design similar to 2011 with thin white hoops or decent size white hoops but not many of them.

You can also tell that the sponsors, or at least the main one, are not gonna be horrible iron on things that come off when you tumble dry the shirt so big positive there! Looking good so far! :D

I don't know if any other ISC kits have been revealed so far, but i bet that we use one of their standard designs, with just the colours changed.
Last years was the same design as the L**ds shirt.

I think it is disgraceful that the club cannot get a deal to produce a PROPER Hull shirt which has a design unique to us.

Happy to eat my words if I am proved wrong.
