It’s MACRON but not BOXT!

The third kit definitely seems marmite.

My initial reaction was that it was awful, but plenty on here seem to be of the opposite opinion.

I've heard it said before that it's better to produce a product that some people hate, as long as some love it, rather one that everyone thinks is just ok.

So on that score, Macron seems to have got it right. No doubt they'll sell plenty.

The only thing I don't really like about the third kit is the black border around the Macron logo, makes it look a bit smaller than the all white Forest logo and the Macron logos on the shoulders

just like that!
When do people think we'll see the two away kits for the first time?

For me, the first real clash with the garibaldi is Arsenal away at the end of October.

It seems to have become the new normal to always wear the away kit away from home (even when there isn't a clash) and the third if the away kit clashes with the home team.

So we might see the away kit tomorrow.

I saw an announcement that the first kit (the home kit) would be classical, the away kit iconic and the third kit 'bonkers'.

The home kit sort of fits the bill, but the other two are nowhere near the mark.

The second kit is the wrong colours and the third kit is boring, definitely not bonkers. Rhubarb and custard was eventually a triumphant winner, this will not be.

🟥 Last season, we played away at Coventry in the Red shirt

🟥 and in the cup at Bradford in the Garibaldi.

🟦 It wasn't until Stoke, when we first saw the Blue away kit.

🟥 Then away at Derby, the garibaldi again.

🟨 At Huddersfield, we saw the Rhubarb & Custard for the time. It's winning moment!

🟨 We wore R&C again at Barnsley too.

🟥 But the following away match at Birmingham, we went back to Red.

I won't go on, but I'm not sure you're correct about the home shirt and away games.

There really seems to be little logic to it. Take QPR and Reading. Both teams wear blue and white hoop shirts and white shorts. At QPR we wore our home kit and at Reading we wore the 3rd kit.

like everything I suspect it's driven by commercial need - i.e each kit has to see a certain number of outings? Otherwise people possibly won't buy it. Last season was unusual because it genuinely appeared the third was regarded as 'lucky' so saw more than it's fair share. Remember that 'lovely' green number we had with the lightning bolt ? I think we wore it once, but that was back in the Umbro days.

The thing that always sticks in my claw is the best shirt macron have made us was that limited edition number - the one with supporters names on it. That was an absolute beauty and would have been a terrific shirt for this season in so many ways.

I suspect the first time anyone will hear who the shirt sponsor is for Forest might be about five to three tomorrow afternoon, when the team runs out in the new kit against Newcastle.
 
Appreciate not a popular opinion, but I think all three are a bit cheap looking and very underwhelming. Home is the only one I'd consider. Fortunately in this instance, my girth means that nothing produced by Macron will ever adorn my body - when it fits the chest it's like a dress.

Yeah, those bobbles Gamble posted are pretty shocking for a new shirt.

Rocka's badass pic has made me warm to the away one visually more the young stallion, but I'm still gonna skip any shirts this year still because of the combination of design & (lack of) quality. £60 shirts should wear for a long time, not a few days.

23 years to make it back up, and Macron have fluffed all 3 chances to entice me with a shirt to remember that by. They've made way more shit than good for us too anyway, so I'd love to see us fuck them off for another firm tbh. Getting bored of their sub-par stuff now.

Bet 365 have done similar pieces on LFC this week, and I doubt they are sponsoring them!

Tails, on the Athletic talk-in, said they're closer to a sponsor and not expecting to go more than a couple of games without one.

There has been talk about going with a charity in the meantime to avoid playing with blanks. He wasn't certain about this and we can only wait to see what happens tomorrow.

Bet 365 did another little video about it being nottm and not notts. I saw that and thought it more likely it was them.
There are several peices about other clubs.

The reason why we're interesting to them - apart from the social media being a Forest fans and from Nottingham as I posted a earlier in this thread - is there's a bit of money going onto Forest in various betting markets. And I suspect this conetent is a good hook to get punters placing with them.

Here's another piece on how we're doing in the markets.

The team are contracted to wear each a certain number of times.
