I'm all for trying something new, but that thing is an eyesore.

The front and back of the home shirt don't match?

brilliant all round -and i feel so much greener knowing that i have some bamboo growing in my garden .

my only concern is that the flourescent pink is not a particular good camouflage for adam smith when he goes into the jungle .

-will the players be back from the jungle in time for the first game of the season ?

Great to be different and ok on the football pitch but would you dare wear that in public?

Ay dios mio, el monstruo verde.

Certainly is different though, I like it. Should have gone a step further and make the shorts full stripes as well.

Nothing wrong with that new kit, like it a lot. Perhaps a zebra can spot another zebra on the pitch while the opposition will struggle.

As with the launch of all new kit designs there are those who love it and those who hate it until it establishes itself.
I'm pleased that the Green and Black stripes remain prominent. Whenever one checks out EFL games our green/black colour combination is unique and easy to identify.

The bit in the FGR publicity blurb that made me smile was: " The zebra’s striping also makes it harder for rivals to judge their speed and direction."
Lets hope for heaven's sake that our own players also don't find it hard to judge speed and direction of fellow team mates.

Why have the same tired conventional kit, be brave and bold, move forward, I remember wearing the old black and white striped shirt on holiday, everyone thought I was a Geordie, I will wear the new shirt in public, may even take it on holiday to Italy,

No. It looks like the black stripes are only at the front.

Forgot to add, hope the opposition players stop when they see a "Zebra Crossing".

Is the burning question -what colour will the third kit be ?

Looks like sea shepherd are a bit black and white-so maybe therein lies the answer-,but i think most of us liked the turquoise blue in the early part of last season (and results were better in that colour )
