'Pony' home shirt released

Filed: Thursday, 22nd July 2010
By: Staff Writer

West Ham's new home shirt for the 2010/11 season has been likened to the Pony kit of the mid 1990s.

The new shirt, designed by Italian firm Macron features a welcome return to the club's traditional colour scheme of sky blue arms with a claret body - although the long collar, in complete contrast to the new away shirt, bears more than a passing resemblance to the shirt which was designed for the club's centenary some 15 years ago.

Totally Pony - the 1995-1997 home shirt...

...versus the 2010 Macron release

As with the new away kit, the home version has been generally well received by supporters.

* A number of adult supporters have been delighted to discover that due to an apparent cock-up by the manufacturers, they can easily fit into the large junior shirts.

Why is this a bonus? Because the junior kits feature the Bobby Moore Fund logo rather than that of SBOBET, the club's main sponsors.

''It is a nice kit but surely as it is a less well-known make it should be cheaper than say if it was made by Umbro, Nike, etc... It's like slapping a West Ham logo on a Primark shirt and charging the same price as if it were made by a big brand.

Can't help but feel a little cheated. I do like the away one though.''

''I like both the new kits but it's just such a shame it's not made by Umbro/Adidas/Nike. It really reminds of 1987 when we went from Adidas to Scoreline! Makes us look a bit 2 bob?

One thing I'd like to make people aware of though that this wasn't the Daves' doing, this deal was done late last year by Nani.

So much more of the kits and training/leisure gear would sell if we had Nike etc. Anyway, nothing can be done now, double looking forward
to new season, (currently) impressed wiv wot Daves are doing but next time, please, let's go back to top name manufacturer.''

''I'm sure you already know - but that shirt was 1995!''
