    Wish we'd ditch the light blue from now on.

    If they're not the real shirts. We should hunt down who made them and get the club to hire them. Seems the best feedback on a group of kits I've seen in a long time (perhaps ever!)

    1. Yellow and sky blue are our traditional second strip colours. We've done quite well in it sometimes.
    2. Money. If the club changes its kit frequently then many fans will buy the replica kit frequently.
    3. Money. Kits that look radically different from their predecessors probably sell more.

    Is 3 seasons in row too much of a stretch?

    1. Yellow has always(well probably not always, but for as long as I can remember) been part of our history. It's very much the secondary colour after white/navy. Light blue is used also.

    2. I don't think clubs change their colours, not their man(Home kit) colour anyway. Only in exceptional circumstances like Cardiff getting a new owner and him changing them from blue to red - despite the uproar it caused. Clubs will often change colours for their away and 3rd/alternate(if needed) kits though, just to keep things fresh and to keep the money coming in. If you're asking why they change the design every season then that's purely for money as a lot of fans will generally want the newest shirt.

    3. Answered above. Spurs will always have a white and navy home kit. One of our away or 3rd kits will generally be navy of some sort so the other will need to be a contrasting colour as there are some teams who will play in blue and white so no matter which we use(if we were to play against them), it will clash.

    Iowa, as a new fan to tottenham, why tottenham?
    Just interested out of curiosity.

    Also regarding the shirt colours, by changing the colours every year, the manufacturers are hoping for extra sales.
    The home colour will in general stay the same.

    As a fan of over 30 years I find myself asking why Tottenham on a fairly regular basis ;)

    I don't have a good answer other than this.

    I live in America and grew up with the, sadly typical, soccer (sorry for using that word it is what I know the sport as) is stupid attitude. That attitude is greatly changing but is going to take quite some time. The area of the country I grew up in was extremely isolated from the sport...not anymore but 20 years ago when I was 6 and developing a sports identity it was...as no high schools within 100 miles of me had the sport and only a handful of private Christian schools had it in the western half if the state of Iowa.

    I went to college in eastern Iowa (starting in 06) where there is a very strong youth association. They have organized "club" soccer from u4 through high school age with the majority of high schools having the sport and my college having the sport. I started to get involved in watching it occasionally then. About that time ESPN started showing some BPL games on TV, though they did a poor job with it. NBCSports took over the PL last season and ran 100 commercials a day for it last summer to promote it. I bought into the hype and started watching preseason preview shows knowing I'd need a team to keep me interested.

    I watched all of the previews and had no idea as the shows were geared towards those who aren't, essentially, brand new to the sport. I ended up taking a dozen, or so, of the hokey online "who should I cheer for" quizzes and Tottenham came up the most frequently. I also knew I didn't want to just follow Man U, or the other typical clubs "outsiders" follow because they are the easiest to follow and people know then even if they don't know the sport. I also didn't want a club that could be relegated or close to almost every year.

    About a week before the first match I still hadn't picked so I just "f it, I'm supporting Tottenham."

    I didn't join a forum, or do s ton of blog reading, during the season so I could form my own sense of being a fan without being influenced to think a certain way right from the start. I did follow a couple places I could find on Twitter just too keep up with the basic news...They followed back but quickly unfollowed due to my lack of knowledge and tweeting about Tottenham everyday I'm assuming.

    Long story short I dint have a good answer other than I just decided on a whim and every time I watched s match on TV I felt something internal pulling for Tottenham and not anyone else. Had I started watching and felt that pull for someone else I'd have gone with it but pulled me in more. So much so that during the season I changed my phone and desktop wallpaper to the Tottenham logo and away from my NFL team...which might be a mortal sin for an American, I'm not sure but I guess I'll find out when I die.

    I'm definitely part of the current eave of Americans falling in love with the sport and embracing it more and more. I have a countdown clock on my desk at work to the world cup and PL season. I know live in the second largest meteo area of Iowa and it's home to the top 5 or 6 and girls high school soccer programs in the state. The school district my 14 month old daughter is in have both girls and boys programs ranked in the top 3 in the state and both undefeated this spring.

    I'm really pushing my daughter towards it as well. I bought a small skill size ball for her that she walks around the house kicking. She might be better at dribbling than I.

    Yes, it's a German ball. My family is nearly 100 percent German so they are my second national club after America. I have family in Germany that I email with weekly.


    Apologies for the rather long post. I'll let this get back to kit talk now

    Sent from my S4 using Fapatalk so if there is typos deal with it.

    Good answers.

    I love it when I see spurs stuff which is navy and yellow with just a dash of yellow. Proper tottenham. Must be navy mind, if the blue is too like then it can be dangerously Leeds.

    Oh and on the last point... "Never Red". That includes markings on the shirt please like sponsors. We even have these two red lions on the club crest which fans including me weren't happy about! However, THFC6061 will point out we have had red shirts before....

    To be honest I can't see why we would NEED anything more than two shirts, white and yellow. The only team in world football I know this would clash with is Fenerbache.

    In the old days some teams would avoid white v yellow as you couldn't distinguish on a black and white tv. This stopped a while ago, but used to continue for Brazil as a lot of people still had b&w tvs. I remember being disappointed watching England v Brazil at wembley in 1990 and Brazil weren't wearing their iconic yellow for this reason. (Although 1970 clash I think was white v yellow)

    I think it should white and navy, which means you might need a third kit occasionally. Yellow shirts are ****.

    I find it quite strange that given how commercialised American Sports are, their jerseys/uniforms are seen as sacred, they generally keep the one design and never change. You'd think they'd be slapping sponsors on there and milking as much money as possible out of the fans. Football clubs around Europe/South America are pretty much seen as religions whereas I think we view the "franchises"(horrible word) in the US as quite fairweather, I mean it's pretty much unheard of for a football team to just up and leave - only Wimbledon/MK Dons springs to mind in recent history but it happens frequently in the US.

    That's basically the first shirt listed on page 1 of this thread but without the ua logo.
    It's also the same colours as in the chadli training top eating a banana pic on page 4. I think the Chinese site is selling fakes of what will be our away shirt.

    I think that's more to do with the fact that the league controls almost all of the commercial deals (the kit manufacturing deal is league wide as well), most of it comes from TV and they don't want brand clashes on screen so the uniforms remain clean and all advertising is on the screen

    the franchises sell sponsorship for their stadium still and probably loads of other things as well like training ground, ota's, cheer leaders, etc
