    Ourselves, Rovers and Bohs are winning this season.

    I don't get the opprobrium for Dundalk's tbh.

    Sure it loks like a Bohs away kit.

    Very similar to the "V" template that Umbro were using back in 2012/13.

    Yeah for a limited period apparently. Presumably they are wrapping up a new sponsor. Pepper was a two year deal signed in 2017. Honestly the jersey is an absolute cracker.

    It wouldnt be the first Dundalk based company to sponsor/help finance a Dublin club if it was to be Boylesports. While Dundalk seem well settled with Fyffes there were seasons a large brand like Boylesports would have been appreciated.

    I just do not get the need for the additional fuss on a shirt. I know ive said it dozens of times yearly but added motifs like here around the neck ruins the shirt imo especially when the Umbro and Club badges overlap the 'traingles' in an unbalanced way. The saving grace is that the sponsor does fit well. The last and probably only shirt that had that background shading that seemed to work was the old RoI kit from 1990 (?) World Cup but maybe Im swayed on nostalgia in that regard.

    This is obviously a new kit thread and everyone will have their views, the new DFC one has grown on me a little, saw it in the flesh last weekend, but will still take a bit to get used to. Would still prefer a collar and a little less red mind !

    Probably a little disappointed also the tri-colour is gone from the back, although not sure if this will be the same for the players versions, anyway the sales seemed to have gone well and the negative comments seem to have reduced so maybe its all calmed down now.

    To be honest, there is a lot more pressing matters for DFC fans to be worried about, and this concerns the ground, it wouldn't kill the owners, nor would it cost them the earth to make an announcement on even modest improvements to the ground before Feb, so many items could be fixed up in these two months.

    Oh God yeah. The Dundalk kit is easily the worst and laziest I've ever seen.

    Oh no the worst was the Bob Marley effort at Dalymount although that was far from lazy! Whather it is Umbro that has been lazy or the powers that be at Oriel Park is the question - was even a single normal fan shown the template to guage opinion?! Supply has been a problem in the past with Umbro so its quite possible that the choice that Dundalk made was to ensure stock would be available before christmas - and this effort was one that could be supplied in time and volume so just maybe its not a straight forward choice. Not to have a new kit in for Christmas even if not the club's top choice would have been an unredeemable disaster. Away kit may be a bit more interesting....

    That jersey generated 80k in sales as well as 3.6m in ad revenue worldwide. So you're in the minority there

    Ah here it was an awful football jersey, that it happened to have a famous theme that non football (Marley) fans might have taken to doesnt make it a good football shirt. Good gimmick all right! Wasnt there an issue with image rights with the Marley estate? If that was the case how was 4.4mil generated or why pull such an earner? Presume you mean financial revenue for Bohs - not such paupers at all then with figures that eclipse any European prizemoney net income of recent years? Or maybe Bohs had to hand over the money generated by the image in image rights - if that makes sense?

    Bohs didn't sell any Bob Marley jerseys though.

    Can we all just take a minute to reflect on how ardent the Bohs fans were back then that their club would surely have been sensible enough to check everything was legally ok with using a Marley-esque image, and how fans of other clubs told them they were likely to get into trouble for it

    Don't want to intrude on your self congratulation here but The outcome was called well in advance by a Bohs poster.
    A bit of mild embarrassment for the club but luckily did more good than harm.
