Well, I’m underwhelmed but it’s OK. Still like my old kit from 1998 though.

And it may be me but I can’t find this on the App that I downloaded today.

Is anyone else thinking ‘if the home shirt was the safe traditional one... what the hell this change kit going to look like?’

Whitecap maybe because we are a cut above the rest?

Tops Tiles is based on Leicester. No problem with a local business being on the front of the shirt.

Shirt looks ok. Acceptable modern take on the classic design. I like most of us would be happiest if we just put the sponsorship stuff on the academy shirt and cracked on but that doesn't seem to be a goer particularly as that light green isn't the correct shade anymore.

Glad to see another fan who falls into the ‘if in doubt read the instructions’ demographic. My advice wd be to follow the instructions....

I rather like the general design, the shirt sponsor brings back painful memories of City being relegated (though I suppose that worked out OK in the end)

I dread kit launch time as every single kit is marmite to each and every fan. There's supporters of a certain age who won't accept anything other than the traditional kit that they saw from the stands in years gone by. Others, if that was the kit, wouldn't like it because it's too boring.

The end of the day, it's a shirt with a 1 season shelf life.. The players will wear it (unlike the fans, they have no choice), some will buy it, some won't and we'll be having the same debate again in 12 months time!!

For those who don't like the home kit, I'm fairly sure they will hate the away kit! We'll see in 20 minutes though!

I feel a normal release would've been better.
Seeing it on the players or something.

Something a bit more classic.. perhaps similar to that of the mid 90s.. but that’s just my humble opinion of course!

It’s much nicer than some of the recent kits so I’m pleased in that respect. As a previous poster stated.. some will like it, some won’t.. c’est la vie
