I prefer Everton blue to Man City blue. This new Rovers shirt looks like washed out crap.

Very disappointed.

This. We are Blackburn Rovers not Manchester City. And the logo is horrific. 

If There's been a worse home shirt I can't think of one off the too of my head.

Looking at their wesite the only time their logo is black is on our shirt. It’s normally a white ‘10’.

So there was lots of latitude.

Ah fair enough. Don't like that one any more though. But if it's normally white then yeh, why not the navy blue which looks better. Maybe once they saw how much the black stood out, they insisted to our detriment.

Who designs these kits? If someone at Rovers came up with that they should be sacked. 

Complete dog turd. Can't see many of them selling. Surely they can't have thought that would go down well. 

I'll be waiting for the away shirt...or not bothering.

Dreadful Rovers kit, one of the worst I have seen, and not a good omen to what could be a difficult season.

Note to the club / owners / PR dept: Rovers play in royal blue, not sky blue.

In non rovers related kit news. Juve have released a kit made 100% from recycled ocean plastic. I would definitely buy this out of support for the cause. Hope the rest of the football world supports this. 

Doesn't look bad either.

Still gutted about this, I was so looking forward to wearing my new shirt on holiday with real pride for the first time in years. The pale blue is annoying but could grow on me, BUT the toilet seat looking logo is horrible, and I just cannot imagine wearing that.

First impressions aren't good for many but like the other not so sparkling kits it'll grow on people and it won't matter too much if there is something performing in them.

All for a bit of heritage, but this is the second one in what 5 years?

How's about looking at those McEwans kits (pre white logo block) of the early 90s? 

Just hope to God we don't go for yellow away too.

Reminds me of the flag we used to send over. It's nice to see something a bit different. I think it looks good as a full kit but nobody wants to be one of those...

edit. I'd be more concerned by Dack not modelling it.

Perhaps he thinks the pale blue doesn't suit a macho image. I compliment him in his fashion sense.

I am very concerned about Dack. Someone is running this through to transfer window closure. Whomever it is it is not good. IMO.

I think you’ll find it was the other way round! Walker blue was the shade Rovers played in during the post war years and through to the 1980’s and was probably a major factor in Walkersteel adapting it as their corporate colour

Spotted on Facebook that even Birdy isn’t buying one - I’ve never, I repeat never in all the time I’ve known him not seen him in the new shirt.

Doesnt bode well for sales (though he may be riled that he wasn’t asked to do the launch campaign :D)

It’s virtually the same one that he launched for Nike FFS !!! 😆

New shirt is terrible.

Basically not Rovers colours.

Anyone imagine Man U or Liverpool bringing out a new light red shirt ?

Someone should get fired.... apart from Cheston.

 

Have you seen this year’s Man Utd kit ? 😳

That's the worst ever Rovers shirt for me. It's so bad it's embarrassing. I wouldn't be seen dead wearing it. Back to my old " CIS " shirt.

For me that shirt sums up everything about the Chicken Chokers attitude to the fans.

I was just thinking on this subject and about the previous examples of the BBE family stand closure, the Darwen end now away only to name but two.

For a Club that bangs on about Community values it seems that those who pay good money to enter Ewood on a matchday are the ones ignored the most.

Historically we have played in a darker blue for the majority of our history. Now under the Vs we go pale twice within a few years. It's progressive disassociation aimed at the younger generation, the aim of this is my worry. Venky's colours in stripes anyone?

The change to pale blue is hasn't anything to do with a Venkys conspiracy. I wouldn't imagine they have any input into the kit design. 

Can the poll have an option "Like the kit, hate the sponsors logo"

After much deliberation, I bought my lad the new strip although I got twitchy thinking I wouldn't have it in time for holiday and he got a new Barcelona kit as well!! The colour has grown on me and the kit looks good without the sponsor

How did you get it without the sponsor? Is that option only available for kids jerseys?
