He says it’s the perfect opportunity for Adidas to produce an “iconic kit” to celebrate Leeds getting back in the Premier League (still not confirmed yet, obviously) and that Leeds would sell an “astonishingly big” number of shirts.
He’s not the only Leeds fan who’s excited and the latest designs from a supporter on Twitter have sent the Whites fanbase into overdrive.
Absolutely unique it transcended it’s origination
and in today’s context perfect for digital media.
We already own the perfect solution.
It just needs to be brought up to date.

@Chris_CD2010 set up a poll asking for feedback (something Andrea Radrizzani probably should have done before announcing his new badge!) and after a few tweaks, posted the latest iteration of her kit on Twitter on Wednesday.

We’re huge fan of simple kits and we love the classy look she’s come up with, with two striking kits for home and away games and clever ‘sock tags’ to reverse the colours.
Why complicate stuff when you’ve got classic colours like this?
She changed the sponsorship logos from 32Red to Qatar Airways in a hopeful and slightly cheeky nod to potential investment from Qatar-based QSI group.
Like Robinson, we’d like to see a special Premier League celebratory kit, possibly in addition to the two standard kits, but we’d be delighted if the first Adidas kits looked like these.
In a normal world, Leeds would have secured promotion already and would be announcing these new kits to an excited and expectant fanbase.
Unfortunately, in the real world, there’s still a lot of work to be done before Leeds can announce promotion and plans for life in the top-flight and with the three stripes.
In the meantime, fans are happy to sit and dream.
Here are the best reactions to the latest fan-designed kits…
