You'd think they'd extend the black patch a bit to cover the name as well as they eye, wouldn't you?

Just the new policy I guess that we have to use the Adidas Numbers now when playing in Europe. Wish we'd keep the EPL style ones like we always did.

If thats the case you'd think Adidas would give us a modified shirt with a black panel on the back so you can read the names, other wise the club and Adidas both look rather daft !

What gets me is, if they're insisiting on using the adidas numbers without the patch, why not use the gold ones like they did for the Shearer testimonial.

 

Or, more preferably, red! <_<

If we're gonna go with white adidas ones, we should return to these tbh

Much better than the current white lettering, but I'd prefer a contrasting colour, like red.

When the shirt numbers used to be red (from at least the 50s up until 1993), they were readable from anywhere on the terraces.

 

That's far more important that whether it's asthetically pleasing, or 'our' colour IMO.

 

That fact that it's red makes no odds to me, it's not like Sunderland use red numbers is it? ;)

 

White and gold just doesn't work as well, the only white ones I remember working were the Asics ones and the first Adidas ones.

 

Didn't we have black numbers one season too? <_<

Red looks shite IMO, not our colour at all. Blue would be ok.

Not bad actually, but I prefer the red.
