Villa Stylish? Oh Yes!

Villa Stylish?  Oh Yes!

Villa's new Macron home kit has been voted the 'most stylish' in the Premier League. What was that about a new dawn under Paul Lambert?

Zoo Magazine asked fashion expert Maaike Dijkstra to make a decision on this season's top 20 home strips, and our came out on top with a 10/10 and the quote 'classic edge!'.

I think that's meant to be good for those who don't travel in those circles!

Speaking to the magazine, Dijkstra said.

'This is my favourite of them all! I love the classic claret and blue and with an on-trend contrast sleeve and collar that adds a smart edge, what's not to like about it?'

I completely agree, even if this blue sky thinking hasn't quite pushed the envelope far enough into the postbox for me to have the ideal idea shower necessary to sprinkle the appropiate magic for blue sea understand to take place.

Okay, maybe I took that a little far!

Zoo Editor Damien McSorley added that although he couldn't guarantee it would help Paul Lambert's boys on the pitch, 'at least Villa have won the first major plaudit of the season!'.

I'm not alone in hoping it won't be the last either. Jonathan Calderwood will again be gunning for Groundsman of the Year, VMF and our pie challenges will be going strong...who knows, maybe we can add a cup to our off pitch successes!

The kit is great. Even better when it has 'Petrov 19' on the back.

I got it today... bit annoyed with myself. Got XL same as the Nike kits and it is too tight! Should have tried it on before I got 'Petrov 19' on the back. Barlarks. Nice kit though.

Err, we're taking lesson's in good taste from Zoo magazine?

I still dont like the feeling that Social Services are looking over both my shoulders. Be honest it looks like an SS logo and frankly its the s******t logo ever and why is it all over our kit like a rash. Also - the crest was redesigned by Nike to go with their style of shirt and it hasnt transferred to the Makro style - an embroidered lion a la early 70s would have been a lot better, seeing as thats the era they have nodded to. Apart from that, its crap. Some nice ideas but none of them well executed.

I'm pretty sure Nike had nothing to do with the crest re-design. Fairly sure an independent design company did it.

The current Villa crest? Awful. The 81/82 Lion Rampant was a classic design. Lots of claret and a circle. Villa aren't the only club to trash their heritage. Compare the current Ajax and Arsenal crests to their former incarnations. The England rugby union 'rose' is another example. The chelskov lion rampant is a good example of how it should be done. Much better than the Ken Bates era design. Hopefully, the Villa lion will really 'roar' in the near future.

i cannot believe villa fans will ever find happyness. our shirt wins best/most stylish shirt this season (a nice compliment) and people still moan about it. next year maybe we should sack all designers and have the fans design it, but then everone who enters and doesnt win wont like it. football evolves, players evolve and yes fashion evolves. this to me has to go down with the people that moan we paid too much for someone who only scores goals (the whole aim of the game). what next people complain that the food is too good at vmf or the pitch is too good at villa park. if its hot its too hot, if its cold its too cold. oh for a good old british moan.

Not too bothered about the shirt. It's claret and blue and that's all that matters. Look at Arsenal. Their red and white strip is becoming more 'red' every year. Are they trying to get more 'fans' in Asia a la Cardiff City? The crest is important as it's the club symbol. The current one at Villa is naff. The Euro 82 silver star is silly. As for Zoo, they are a mid-shelf 'J. Arthur Rank' mag. Who gives a monkeys cuss about anything printed in their sleazy pages.
