Personally I really like it.
A nice swerve away from the Yellow,and I wasn't a huge fan of the purple kit.
Loved the blue/white we had for West Ham, and the light blue we had as a third kit the one season.

I like the fact its also a bit different with the Errea logo down the shoulders, another throwback to one of our previous kits.

The only thing I don't get is why we will be wearing it at home against Leicester - a team who also play in Blue.

The new away kit is fine, better than previous offerings.

Still hate the stupid robin badge though, what was wrong with the town crest?

That would be the best time to promote it I imagine.

Whilst I'm not a lover of the badge, the town crest could not be copyrighted meaning anyone who wanted to knock up scarves and t-shirts if we had a big cup draw could do so without fear of being sued for it.

Love it, the club emblem is clear to see, very nice.

Ah that makes sense, shame really as the robin badge is c!#p.

I like the club emblem, loved it when I first saw it.

Looks like I'm in the minority. I think it looks tacky!

I'm not au fait with copyright laws, but could the town crest have been incorporated into another emblem and then copyrighted? For crappy example, put it within a football and have Cheltenham Town FC around in circularly?

Clubs seem to be changing their badges every couple of years now, so give it another 5 and it'll be changed again.

Bring back the bouncing ball that the Trust now use - that's what I say.

Regarding the kit itself, I love it apart from the Errea badges down the sleeves - they look a bit 90s Kappa to me.

As football shirts (tacky and shiny by nature) go I really like it. I love the colour. Blue is my favourite colour to wear and red my worst.

I especially like the town motto featuring.

I have not bought a shirt since the first Ruby season. I am going to buy one of these Azures!

It is a good colour but white/pale grey would go better with the badge. Perhaps we should use 50% bamboo for a less tack finish.

I really like the new kit, one of the better ones in recent years.

Best home shirt we have had in a long time.
Was disappointed we didn't stick with the Ruby, although the Ruby and White striped shirt wasn't great.

All the more reason for the club to bring it back then, with the little fat robin in the ball.

It truly was a thing of beauty.

I hope it grows on me as at the moment I'd rate it close to the worst ever. The purple and Inter Milan kits were my favourites.

My thoughts too. Second best behind the Inter Milan in my view. Might even beat that for me when I see it in person.

The most important question is of course. Will it be available to buy before Christmas. N
