a minute in photoshop at least makes it kind of relevant to our actual history

I'm still a bit dumbfounded the stripes design got signed off by someone.

That's a far better shirt IMO :CLAP:

I appreciate I’m in a minority of one so far...but I quite like it :|

Modern with all the current sponsors, heritage with the old crest and the names of all the players to have ever played first team woven in the fabric around the bottom section and retro with the old style collar

Granted 130 years isn’t a number to celebrate like it would have been if 100 or 150 and it’s obviously been brought out to try and bring in some extra cash, which normally I’m dead against with the number of shirts brought out each year recently, but I kind of get it in the current climate and so am not as critical as I’d normally be.

Each to their own I suppose. Every one on here so far hates it, but I don’t mind it


To be honest, if they had announced this as our shirt for next season I would have been fine with that. It's modern in design and material. Ok you not have had the names and the old badge but it would be a decent 2021 shirt.

It just doesn't do it as a heritage shirt, but each to their own for sure.

I suspect they will be in the sale pretty soon so at least you will grab a bargain :)

It's not even a good try GH looking around for obscure dates to celebrate it and bring out a shirt to make a bit of slippy cash

Making cash is fine with me but choosing an obscure date instead of the 150th anniversary of the foundation club and the laziness/sloppiness of the design is just poor commercial decision making - and I think that probably ends up ultimately at Rob Oates' door.

I know you can't have blue and amber irregular hoops every shirt, but a club truly in tune with its fanbase and its history would know what works and what doesn't. And wouldn't try and create a heritage event whilst forgetting about a genuine anniversary and simultaneously trying to shift a heritage shirt which has no element of heritage to it. Give half the people on this messageboard ten minutes to sensibly feed back opinion on any of the above and they'd get a better steer of what would work than seems to have been the case here.

Spot on.

I’ve absolutely no issue with not using traditional designs for kits every year, but on a heritage shirt it has to be a must surely?

The irony is it would have probably been a big seller if done properly, im not sure who thought a parramatta shirt was representitive of our history
