Slightly off topic but as there are kits in the picture and I’m bored I said fuck it, here’s my desk at work in all its current glory -

(Obviously fuck all work gets done here) but it’s still a nice little set up even if I do say so myself.

Which one is Sanogoals? :D

I melted Sanogo down, ate the solution and shat him out as a sign of my complete contempt for the bastard 8)

Bonus point for anyone who can name the player on the extreme left. Have that since I was a young lad - but the likeness ain’t bang on I’ll freely admit :wink:

It probably does look more like Viv than who it’s meant to be in fairness.

Ok, I'll go for TA.....based on the class of other figures you have on display, I don't think the fact that the figure is a dead ringer for Colin Hill is going to matter.

Holy moly, it looks nothing like Merson, I was guessing at TA6 too, but thought it looked like Colin Pates !

Merse, the Merse, really.

This is bullshit, fucking outrageous, the lengths some people will go to just to prove you wrong. So how long did it take you to paint over TA6 and put PM10 on the back then Rodders.

Unfuckingbelievable :shock:

That is one seriously bad attempt at the Merse :lol:

Ha it’s a shocker alright Jock :lol:

I reckon back then they just had the one head that did every player in the league. Must look it up, it could be worth all of 4 quid after all these years.

Did we all see the email from the club today asking if we were ready for the new kit?

Farcical that 72 hours out from the launch they are STILL not allowed to use the word adidas. Joke. :roll:

Instead there were a load of videos showing our best moments from 1986-1994 i.e. the last adidas era.

I'd imagine there will be around 2 weeks between the launch of the home and the away so expect that to drop mid July.

A bruised banana reissue is rumored for release in November Jock.....so you'll just have to make do with the modern take on it for now.

However it's an '89 away reissue that's the holy grail for me. I'm praying they do one of those at some point. I' d be first in the queue the day that goes on release and slap my pecker down on the counter along with my wallet :barscarf:



Will the merchandise/training top like kos was wearing in the ad be released Monday too ? Somebody put up a few rumoured tracksuit tops some time back (too lazy to go back to find them :oops: ) that were really, really nice, and I'd like to see if (a) they are accurate and (b) how much they are gonna set me back
