Palace recently decided that they were actually founded back in 1861 and not 1905 as they had claimed for the last 100+ years.

I don't know the ins and outs of it but it seems someone has managed to find a link to the original Crystal Palace team and that's enough for them to claim status as one of the oldest clubs in the world. 

Whether it is actually true or not I doubt they care as it seems to be all about proving that they are older/more historical than their London rivals.

The original Crystal Palace were founded in 1861 and were dissolved in 1876. Although both teams were founded by the same company, how they can claim to have existed for 160 years when for 29 of those years they didn't exist is bizarre to say the least. It seems they want to be recognised for something as they have no major trophies to their name.

Bit like when folk try and claim Stanley (third team to come out of Accrington as late as 1968) as being ‘Founder Members’

Founded by the same company is the flimsiest of grounds anyway. The club is the club, not the company that owns it. We aren't Venkys, just ran (ruined) by them.

I guess Tesla were founded whenever PayPal was founded too.

Your argument is spot on too. AFC Darwen don't officially get to claim to be Darwen FC anymore because of some money problems and a very short spell out of business, so Palace can definitely get to fuck with a 29-year gap!!

Utterly disgusting.

I mean it’s a nice shirt but it is a Rovers shirt.

They can claim they had it first off they want - I don’t imagine there are any colour photos of it - but that is a Rovers shirt.

There’s a video on YouTube and the Palace fans in the comments are all salivating over it. Just cements the fact that Blackburn Rovers have the best and most iconic kit in the country.

Just a shame the clowns currently in charge of the club don’t have a clue, and we are back to playing in blue in the first half and playing in white in the second.

No, but have to admit to feelings of nausea

The way things are going, Scunthorpe United the more likely team in claret and blue next to visit Ewood

I can confirm that you would definitely need a bigger size than normal. I really stood out as the odd one out down there by only buying one shirt (the away). Even with the XXL, it isn't exactly loose around the chest and the arms are very clingy (I have muscles but nothing freakish). Overall, a lovely kit. The home kit is indeed a darker blue in person than the reveal.

As in people are buying both? That's good news!

Yep. One guy had 3 in his hand. Presumably one for a mate. I guess the people that usually buy both would be there on the first morning as opposed to those who'll drop in next week some time. Junior kits are there but no women's sizes. Training kit looked lovely so had a nosey at the price. £33. No thanks.

If you don't mind me asking, would you normally have got an XL or a L? 

It wasn't clear on the website at launch that sizing was different, can see them getting a few return requests

I saw a Palace fan on twitter claiming that it was them Tottenham were honoring with their blue and white kit... not us winning the FA Cup 1884.

Their fans seem to all have bought it without questions, because now they might be the oldest club in the country...

I'd be XL so just one size bigger. They had the changing rooms locked up so people were just trying them on in the shop! There'll definitely be plenty of returns. That's the reason I never buy clothes online anymore; it's just not worth the faff.

Not great quality. The badge in particular is unlikely to survive for long. We knew that about Macron really though and it doesn't need to survive that many match days.

I've just been down to get tickets for tonight and for a home shirt for my daughter.

She wore a small adult shirt last season; same again with the new one. It seems decent quality.

There was a good number of people milling around.
