April 1 kit news

Filed: Friday, 1st April 2016

As it's gone midday, we own up.

We admit the club doesn't really have plans to replace shirt numbers with letters...as far as we are aware.

We still think that they should dismantle the Boleyn brick-by-brick and reassemble it nearer the Olympic Stadium, though!

April Fooled?
