    The White Sock Mystery

    Anyone know why we've decided to go back to wearing white socks again?

    Hope we're not planning on doing this for the final.
    All of the above is 'IMO'

    I don't mind the white socks but I really dislike the green shorts.

    Might be wrong here - the mists of time an aw that - but in '91 did we no wear white socks in the semi but reverted to green for the final?

    More of the same ta...

    All in Green for the 2007 final.
    2004 white shorts green socks
    2001 white shirt, Green shorts and socks.

    I think the evidence here is inconclusive. Stick with white socks, after all they got us into the final.

    Of course; but why has the decision been taken (again) to make green a minority colour in our strip?

    Green top, white sleeves, plain white shorts and green socks with white turnovers (and i'd outlaw that ridiculous look of half the sock being covered in white tape). Long sleeves when it's cold (none of this 'thermal' pish), and short sleeves when it's nice.


    And they'd all be in Puma Kings or Adidas World Cups

    Have to agree with you Silverhibee, really like the white socks, look really good. Hope we keep them, not just for the final, but forever.

    I honestly couldn't give a flying one about white socks or green shorts - as long as we're in our home shirts - an occasion like a cup final I would be annoyed if some one off fly by night away strip was given an outing.

    Green top with white sleeves, white shorts and green socks please. Why we mess about with the home strip combo is a mystery. Leave it to Celtc to play in white with a hint of green.

    Agreed, it is the best strip by a country mile, don't mess with our home strip.

    The Yambamadingdongs are playing in what is nearly their 'classic' strip this season. We should put out a new one for the occasion in the classic style, correct green and everything.

    I hate it when the white runs up over the shoulders to the collar. The entire body (for want of a technical term) should be green, and the white should stop where the sleeve joins the body.

    Agreed.

    It should be white sleeves, not white sleeves and shoulders.

    Plain, darker green body with white sleeves, white shorts, green socks.

    Piss about with the away kit and the now obligatory 3rd kit all we want but the home strip should be kept simple and classic.
