I like both, home more than away. Although I will never buy an away shirt again, as the last one I bought saw us get hammered 5-0 at home by Watford, not that I’m superstitious or anything.

Are the socks all white or black.
No players modelled whole strip yet?

Quite like the away kit to be fair.
Me too, sharp and uncluttered.

I'm not overjoyed by the kits but they are OK IMO.
The 2nd kit is an off the peg adidas template while the 1st kit looks like it has some customising.

I didn't like the black sleeves on our shirts when we reached a major Euro final.
I wasn't keen on yellow when we had it as a 3rd kit during a season we achieved 7th place.
So who know's?

We were due a change of style after a few safe years with mainly white shirts and safe 2nd kit designs.

The home shirt design is fine I think and thankfully the sponsor logo is fairly plain so all in all pretty good. 

For the away shirt I think it's purely a marketing choice, so they can promote a different colour shirt - if it is red/black again people are probably less likely to buy it.  I think a lime or gold would be more interesting as the main colour with the trim a different colour than white  - maybe navy, burgundy or black. Yellow is a pretty uninspired choice and I always remember them as being our worst kits over the years.

I like the home kit (except the badge, of course) and the video answered my question about the roundel detail. I thought it looked like a cast iron coalhole cover (another interest of mine), but the detail of the decorative railings is very clever. Can anyone on here with access to the Cottage confirm if the manufacturer's name is on it? Wouldn't be surprised if its a Hayward product (see here for its history: http://faded-london.blogspot.com/search/label/Hayward%20Brothers and here for my coalhole cover blog: https://coalholecover.blogspot.com/)

The home kit is slick and elegant, perfect for the club in my opinion and the hexagons gives it a kind of modern twist, and the batch in the back it's a great tribute to our stadium
I wanted to buy the away kit this year but I don't like the yellow one and the home kit is too good to not buy it, so the home kit it is
