Two things struck me about the new kit apart from it generally being OK and the home shirt having a slightly retro feel:-

1. Ryan wouldn't be modelling it if he wasn't staying

2. Generally we like to announce our signings looking resplendent in their new colours. Look a bit naff if they were in the old kit.  We can therefore anticipate  the avalanche we've been speculating about.

COYW!

Not for me. Dislike gambling advertising on the top.

It's not, nor has it ever been, our colours.

And they wear it too.

Did we not have an all blue away kit on the 60’s? Seem to have a picture of Steve Earle wearing it in my head.

but so what...its an away kit and breaks the norm of boring same colours. our colours are white and black surely. i for one am pleased we have a blue kit and it looks great other than the colour of the sponsor

The home kit is great. Love the neck and a big fan of the nod to the late 90's GMB and Demon kits. I wonder if it is an adidas template, or if they've actually designed something for us. Usually we just get given the 'team adidas' stanadard design choice, so nice to see us with something special.

It was our colour long before it was theirs. We just dumped it when we saw sense.

I think when the last blue shirt came out (Europa season) it was proved that way way back we did play in blue for a time. As already mentioned the home shirt is reminiscent of the demon shirt we won promotion in and the away is reminiscent of the Europa final shirt. So a nod to past glories. I like both.

No issues at all with the Home Kit - infact quite nice. The away kit is appalling - blue has nothing whatsoever to do with Fulham's tradition - we should leave blue for others .... & Scotland. Red/Red & Black are FFC's away colours - why on earth depart to this debacle?

Another betting sponsor? Very disappointed - gambling advertising seems to be everywhere these days. I was hoping we were moving away from that. And dafabet - who are they anyway?!

Aside from the sponsor, I don't mind the home kit, though was never a fan of the thick black bar on the Demon Internet kit. The away kit's very nice though (edit: I thought the away kit was black. Not keen on the blue at all!)

Meh. Sort of looks like our old kit, which I like. But that doesnt mean its a good idea to bring it back. Almost feels sacrilegious using a similiar style of shirt as our old one AND having a woeful betting company as a sponsor. Not saying im right, but thats just how i feel.

Away shirt not sure about. Looks clean, but too much blue for me and that colour is just a big no-no.

Nope, incorrect - red has always been our 3rd colour.
Blue has nothing to do with Fulham (Yes the Europa Run - but it was totally alien to Fulham then). Back in the 1880's there was the light/dark blue halves of Fulham St Andrews - if it replicated that, at least there'd be something of Fulham's history incorporated but as it stands it is just some media boffin's whim.

Dafabet,weren't they the online betting firmed based in Asia,where that match fixing on Indian cricket took place?
Quite like the strip,and at least the sponsorship isn't in a hideous orange or green letters.

Dark blue and light blue vertical stripes, it was the away kit before the red and black stripes.

I hope my daughter can still fit into a child's size without the gambling advert. I don't like the dark blue - didn't when we got to the Europa League final either. Presumably when we play C*****a away, we play in our home kit. But what about Brighton and Huddersfield away - both play in blue and white stripes? Presumably we'll need a 3rd kit (red and black stripes, please).
