    Kits 2019

    Bohs really trying to squeeze every last drop out of the hipster football fan trend have released a frankly terrible new away shirt for 2019 with Bob Marley's face and a Rastafari coloured stripe down the front.

    Won't be long before the cultural appropriation accusation will be thrown at them, probably should have played it safe and gone for Phil Lynott but I'm not a marketing genius like the guy who came up with this clearly is...

    Said it in the other thread but the absolute state of that, genuinely hilarious to the point I actually howled laughing at it. What on earth are they playing at, literally parodying themselves.

    Not even 2019 yet and we're already started on another year of #GreatestLeagueInTheWorld goodness.

    I bet they sell a ridiculous amount of them. Not 100% about having Bob Marley's face there, a gig in 1980 in Dalymount is a weak enough link, but the white jersey with the rasta trim looks well.

    They've jumped the shark at this stage, state of that. Although it will get huge publicity so a win for them

    Also if any team were to have Phil Lynott on their jersey it would be Pats seeing as the first Outdoor Rock Festival held in Ireland was in Richmond with Thin Lizzy playing at it.

    Following your logic on club/musician links and after a quick google search I've concluded that the official musician of Dundalk is Bressie, unless any older fans can recall a gig from literally any other artist I might have to reconsider my support

    There's a nice bit of work for someone who is decent at photoshop, all LOI team jerseys with a face of an artist who has played at their ground on it.

    Liam Coyle was the last artist to play at the Brandywell.

    They could well do.

    Dreadful looking top though. Mortified for them.

    Could we have Jim Corr in a tinfoil hat please?

    Something like this perhaps?

    Excellent, perhaps pointing at the club crest and declaring it a UFO?

    On mature reflection, Jinx Lennon should be considered. Maybe for the away strip?

    It's an abomination all right, but this will probably be covered by media outlets all over the world so they could sell tonnes of them abroad. it's a fairly tenuous link, but probably the closest link a LOI club could ever get to a global icon of his stature. Will be interesting to see how the sales go....

    here's one stolen from twitter that i thought was hilarious...

    "Not sure about a football shirt with with a music icon printed on it but have to say if it's going to be Bob Marley you couldn't ask for a more appropriate sponsor than Mr. Green..."
