'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Classic Adidas For Villa - Please!

Right then people. I'm sure Fear will love this idea as he likes a 'proper' classic trainer in Adidas Gazelle

I want our kit to be made by Adidas. Not the crappy three stripes that the Bar Codes and Liverpool have. I want the 70's trefoil to come back.

Couple that with bringing back our old round badge to go on the left hand chest side and sponsor in the middle. Make it a slim fitting but not on the same ridiculous scale as the Spurs Kappa shirt design. Breathable and stretchable. Bring back a 'classic' 70's design. That way we'll be totally different from ALL the clubs and personally I think it would look shite hot !

I would love a return to this style as it's never been done since then. Make the Trefoil big and white with the classic plain claret body and blue sleeve along with the round badge. Make it a black trefoil on the away shirt and that would look sweet !

What do you all think ? I would like to think that the 'older' members on here would love it, especially Fear. Remember your old 70's Adidas school bags ? I know they didn't last long but what the hey ! Today's technology would make the shirts last.

JF: Big thumbs up from me, I'd be in seventh heaven, especially if they marked the sponsorship with a limited edition gazelle 'spezial' in claret and blue!!!

I like the sound of that and im only 21, so im one of the younger fans. We really need a break from the boring kit we have at the moment and a permanent break from Hummel.

adidas originals all the way for me. I was also thinking, why not make the shirts into a fashionable design, so they look like good t-shirts to wear out somewhere and less like footy shirts?

Crosswesley, any chance you drawing us a picture of your vision? Have a lovely old skool claret and blue fred perry top. My mate who supports everton was wearing it when we played them last week, handed it over to me as soon as the goal went in!

I will do a design for you all. When I mean "classic" I mean "classic". No flashy cr@p like we've got now. Something you'd look at and go "that is the dogs nuts" I will have something sent to the Fear shortly. Retro Adidas would look superb.

Won't but the current shirt with the stupid sponsor name on it. Haven't done so for years. I prefer to buy the retro shirts and will continue until they do something like you're suggesting.

Sounds excellent, now all we need are the short tight shorts, and then we have to convince the team to sport either mullets or curly perms and moustaches, and for those that can get away with it massive afros, now don't you think Aggi would look brilliant ?? UT retro V,

MMMMmmmmmmmm possibly Jon, but please take into account the years spent banging my head against a brick wall, caused by supporting the best team in the world, run by the biggest ars**ole in the world. UTV but I still think Aggi would look good with a massive affro!!
