Is it because they remind you of the Daily Mail? :-)

Yes boys,very sup rising error by TRM with the positioning of this thread.


He's normally so "black and white" about these things!

I'm sure TRM used to have a soft spot for Port Vale when he was at North Staffs Poly.

Aah but with a hint of red Aled.

Actually it was my preferred away strip for Stour,it was like the one the great Liverpool side of the late 70's and 80's used,i'm not a fan of this hideous green and yellow one we use now.

As an Albion fan i actually like green and yellow for an away strip BUT in a striped shirt NOT a solid yellow.

I hope stour return to their old away colours next season,i also preferred it when we didn't have red shorts with the home kit.

Lets hope Stourbridge football club change home and away kits accordingly just to keep Devil satisfied.

Change kits don't count. We should go back to that, imo. Tradition rules!!!

Still do. The exception that proves the rule!

Besides, I was only really talking about NL teams.

Until relatively recently we always played in white shorts as our "first choice", apart from maybe one or two seasons around the end of the 70s when I seem to recall black shorts - or maybe that was a "mix and match" for away games when we needed to change our shorts but not our shirts.

I've not really got any strong feelings on that one, but I've never really liked the yellow/green combo. The current kit in particular doesn't really have anything to break it up, other than the sponsors logo, badge and numbers on the back. I'd rather see something with a bit of a contrasting colour. Remember when we had the yellow shirts with the dark blue band across the middle (mid 90s?) and dark blue shorts? Quite liked that one.

Btw, if this is going to move on to discussing our kits, could Jack move it back to "On Topic"? Wink

I was told Gary insisted on the yellow/green,perhaps it's due to his Albion heritage.

Even as a commercial item to sell to fans and especially kids a plain yellow shirt is a god awful choice,i hope we can have some input to get some really classy looking options for next season and a return to our traditional colours both home and away.

Perhaps a third kit especially reserved for our six FA Cup games per season.

I'm as certain as I can be that we switched from white/black to yellow/blue for the 93/94 season. I'm sure the first game in yellow was at Dover in the 1993 SL Championship Match.

Couldn't say when yellow/blue became yellow/green.

Wonder why he didn't insist we go the whole hog with yellow and green stripes?

Probably a good move though, not to identify ourselves too closely with the Baggies and disenchant the Wolves lot.

I thought it was at the request of our kit sponsor at the time, Caterers Club. I'll double check my facts with those in the know at the next home match...

So what can we do to get us back in white and black, short of sacking Gary? Anyone mentioned this to the powers that be?
