didn't we have a VERY bad run last time we used yellow and green? could be a superstition in terms of the club (it does happen) and we do have a good run with red, red is the original away colour too. trust me i want yellow and green but i'm not desperate.
in terms of what the club said, the club said they were for everyday, not the manufacturer. just like the club said Steve Clarke was the stand out candidate, despite some foreign news articles (which may be reputable in their countries) saying otherwise. If they really we're for everyday then climacool would be removed, a different, more forgiving, material would be used and it WOULD be a looser fit. Adidas aren't stupid, despite what people want to believe, and they know they can use the same materials as the officials at a cheaper rate than changing the materials every other batch to appease fat people.
