It has been a bit odd this year with the kit launch, because basically, there hasn’t been one.
So, this will pass as the kit launch as Dan of the Villa View is a Villa fan and he’s got up close and personal, well, up close anyway, with the kit.
Join Dan Bardell (@danbardell) in the club shop to take an in-depth look at the new Aston Villa home, away and goalkeeper shirts – designed by Luke Roper. Filmed by the expert who is Daniel Rolinson @DanRolinson(available for video work)
12 lines to signify we were one of the 12 founding members of the football league. Nice little touch that. A nicer touch, for me, would have been blue sleeves, but I’m not a kit fascist, as long as they aren’t disgusting, I don’t really ‘care’… (and this is very far from disgusting, it has some lovely features) and we do have far bigger problems right now at Villa. Rubberised (yes, I think that is a word Dan) badge. And the nice logo on the back of the neck as well.
I do slightly disagree with Dan on one thing. The players last year, when with Under Armour, had tailored professional shirts. That’s as it should be. This year, the shirts they have are the shirts we have. This is unprofessional, cost cutting and nothing less than I’d expect from the way this club is being run. That isn’t Luke’s fault just to be clear but oh my lord, how the mighty have fallen. All the talk of a revolutionary tri party this that and the other…. pull the other one, the big boys we were with no doubt at all wouldn’t deal with this level of… sod it, back to the kit:

Yeah, it’s a nice one that white one, if it was available without our gash sponsor on, I’d have one, I won’t be a walking billboard for that lot though! Very odd no kit launch this year as well, hmmm, I wonder why! Didn’t do Luke justice at all that.

Join us in the The kit discussion thread, or don’t, see what I care!
Work of art. Best in decades. My fav since the Mita Copiers circa 1990. Now imagine that new kit with the old round badge …… ????❤️ pic.twitter.com/XptLikImIv

Now we just have to hope we have some players left to play in them.
