To save the East Belfast Club being sidetracked time to resurrect this one.
Wonder what Snap, Evil and Michaelg make if this

Reminds me of this Fiorentina kit from 1992/93. If memory from Gazzetta Football Italia serves me correctly, it took a good five or six months before people started to notice the problem with it.

I've always though Linfield a biggoted shower of scumbags so this announcement doesn't make any difference to me. However, I assume that these jerseys are somehow run past the IFA so its hard to see how any body that is genuinely interested in getting catholics involved would allow this to go ahead?

From the reaction on social media linfield fans donít seem too keen on the new kit either

I think it's disgraceful.

Don't think much of "Whataboutery" either.

"We don't need guns"
"Yes you fuckin' do"

You assume wrong.

Somehow.

Looks like Umbro have moved to distance themselves from the kit. Looks a bit like they are throwing Linfield under the bus with it. Can't see that relationship lasting much longer.

Apparently it sold out. Both parties secretly happy I would imagine

There are Swastikas going right across the jersey. The darkest lines at the level of the lotto & club badge.
