    Over the last week a number of fans have been desiging new strips that could be used as a compromise and e-mailing them to the club. Some have actually been quite smart, others cringe worthy, but this one is my favourite so far >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    I think this 'leak' was all part of a softening up campaign myself.

    Happy for us to play in red away from home though. I've never given much of a fuck what we play in away, tbh.

    From Austria Salzburg, a club that was formed in 2005 after the original was re named Red Bull Salzburg.

    Still trying to work out how changing into a red strip magically boosts our foreign appeal to such an extent that it's worth throwing out a hundred years of history.

    "fire and passion"....oh. dear. god. no. Bet they loved that when it came up on the powerpoint re-branding presentation. :rolleyes:

    Still least they kept the "Established 1899" :facepalm: Yeah well played on ignoring that tradition.

    In my dreams, this will start a real backlash from fans of all clubs against modern football, but the reality is that it's the money that does the talking these days.

    Its outrageous. I hope none of the fans buy this new kit. I hope everyone wears blue. Fuck this corporate shite invading our game.

    And bring back the Super Furries sponsored Cardiff shirt. Red Dragons my arse.

    Red is the colour for Good Luck in China (and a lot of the Malaysian investors will be of Chinese origin).
    Blue is the colour for immortality and is worn at funerals.
    Man U and Liverpool have been popular in SE Asia for a long time, Chelsea less so, but that's probably more to do with historic success than strip colours.

    Crappy decision, though.
    Will they revert if the investors/sponsors pull out in a couple of years time if Cardiff fail to get promoted?

    It really does - it's the same shade of red. I've a feeling Rotherham had the black stripe at some point as well. Might be making that up though.
