New Home Shirt Released

AVFC have now released images of their home shirt which is now on pre-order.

Gone is the yellow piping, and the claret & blue 'dog collar' effect. In of course have come 32red.com, who take over from COWS as our main sponsor.

The only thing I can say about it is that it's very clean-cut, no messy designs, no bizarre 1-coloured sleeves like other clubs do. Straight to the point. However when it comes down to the replica's, its the quality of the material that will be under scrutiny as Hummel have struggled to provide shirts where the sponsor logo stays on. Whilst improved, I dare say many a Villa fan would like to see Nike, Adidas or one of the other major brands come in.

There is a photo posted in the forum but sshhh don't tell anyone!

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly convey my sympathy for Tommy Sorensen, who will spend the entire 2006/2007 Premiership season dressed in what can only be described as rather awfully coloured kits.

It should be noted that the Vital Villa forum brought images of a kit that was being sold rather cheekily on eBay from Indonesia. Turned out it was the real thing about a month early!

You know its a slow news day when you have to report on shirt colours!

Not keen on the collar... or indeed the manufacturer, but it does make us different

There are a lot of things that make Aston Villa different and the shirts just add to it, badges dropping off the replica shirts, could I suggest the fans use them as confetti whenever Villa score.

To say I am fuming at the new kit is an understatement. I wrote a letter to Ellis, Stride and the Shop Manager to remind them about the commemorative 'star' back in April. At last years shareholders meeting Steve Stride told fans that an administrative error meant that there would be no 'star' on last seasons kit, but he guaranteed it would be on this years. It doesn't surprise me though that the fans have been ignored again. As the future is bleak it is vital, that like other European Cup winning clubs, we salute our most glorious achievement. This is just another in a long line of Ellis not wanting to recognise the success we had when he was not around. The boycott of buying the kit from the club shop should start here. Buy it at some multi national sports retailer, and save a few quid at the same time.

All I can say is contact the club I guess: ticketsales@astonvilla-fc.co.uk is listed as the official thing for tickets and merchandise. This is where my previous Hummel complaint went to.

Im not buying it and I hope you lot dont too. The Ellis boycott is in full swing and that means not buying his shirts as well. And as for not putting the star on i am livid. Were crap now but at least let us bask in former glories, you stupid old git Ellis.

it's certainly not the kit I voted for in the "fans survey", nor is it the one my mates voted for. Ellis hasn't got a f**king clue has he?! An unknown sponsor paying us pennies and a poor quality, badly designed kit. Only up side is the Football League badge should fit nicely on the sleeve for 2007-8
