The Imps have released the new kit for the 2019/20 season this evening, hoping to improve on last season’s controversial kit.
I like it. That’s the starting point for me. I like it because a: it’s nice and b: the supporters’ board were consulted.
It’s red and white stripes, nothing fancy, a nice, basic red and white stripe. There is black on there too, something I think finishes a kit off nicely as well. Some of the feedback I’ve seen so far is critical of the sponsor, the one aspect we didn’t know about when we saw it.
However, I like the colours of the sponsor. What their business is, largely, is irrelevant and people complaining about that need to go and have a little lie down. I think a predominately blue sponsor works well anyway. I liked the TSM sponsored shirt, but not so much the Go Car.
You’ll not please everyone all of the time, that much is certain. Last year the shirt polarised fans, a 50/50 split between love and hate. I think this year the club have got it more or less spot on. Not everyone will love it but few will think it’s abhorrent.
Once we see it up close I think it’ll win a few more fans as well – I’m led to believe the customised touches on the shirt are particularly nice and help make this one that I’ll happily buy fll price, rather than waiting for the sale at the end of the season.
It’s even got our old friend Martyn Green being positive, which is a big achievement!
Huge improvement on previous years.

Maybe because the money coming in is substantial? Who cares about the sponsor honestly …?♂️

Much better than last years. Similar to the recent Southampton one but that’s not a bad thing.

I like it but I'd LOVE it if the sponsor logo was in black like it is on the goalkeeper kit ?
