It's not too shabby. I thought we'd be getting what Leicester played in at the weekend and while I'd have preferred that, this is not too bad really.

Don't think Ayling's convinced yet...

Looks ok, 3rd kits for me are meant to different and non-traditional
There's light at the end of the tunnel and the future's looking very bright indeed.

I never saw the point of 3rd kits - the first and second ones should eliminate the possibility of a clash with the opposition, so presumably the 3rd one is just to sell more merch isn't it?

Can't stand it.

Wrong colour for us.
Generic template.

They put gold on it to add some bling but it just makes it look tacky.

Really disappointed with ALL of adidas' efforts and I won't be buying any of them.

It’s not for me, but I very rarely buy the replica kits anyway, although I did get the blue away one last year.

It's got to the point now where they've just mucked about it with so much when they could've just come in and done something classic.

Imagine three white adidas stripes on an all white kit ?
I mean white on white, but because it's two different materials they'd still show up.
Imagine just a blue adidas logo on one pec and the club badge on the other ?
Imagine an all yellow away kit with blue trim ?

It would be a statement : we're back and we're wearing our classic colours.

What's wrong with Leeds colours, white, yellow and blue, Simple! Pink,Grey,Green and now Maroon. I think they are trying to appeal to a market I don't understand, it might be an age thing!

I get the commercial aspect - that grey kit was the best selling away strip we've ever had. It also grew on me. But this time round the home shirt is the big seller and i doubt the other two will get close to the grey as three is too many for most people and times have changed.

Also, there's underlying factors for the high sales :
1. Bielsa
2. Success
3. Not much else to buy under lockdown
4. First ever kit from Adidas.

I think if they'd stuck with all yellow away and a classic white for home a lot of fans would've bought both and that would also be all we need from a sporting view.
