Red Strip
« on: April 28, 2011, 06:17:34 AM »
 ;D We have nearly always done exceptionally well when we don the red strip.
I for one am extremely happy when we wear it.
When they ran out at Spurs i knew we would get a result.

I think historically teams who play in red have been the most successful, so maybe there's some science in how well we've done playing in red?

We have played in it twice this season, and we have picked up four points. We did pretty well wearing red last season too.

It doesn't look that bad either imo, we should keep it as our away kit.

black is a silly colour to play in anyway you would get hotter then usual wearing!
all in favour of red but half the league plays in red so you couldnt wear it that much
O Albion we love you

I like our red kit I think it should be our main away kit next season if the yellow/green doesn't come back!

That's a good point actually, never thought about that :o. Still, I really like the current black away kit, my favorite away kit next to the classic green and yellow which I really hope they bring back next season. Green and Yellow stripes is our classic iconic away strip, really its THE West Bromwich Albion away shirt. C'mon Albion, bring it back.
