And free standard UK delivery for online club shop orders in December. A welcome move in the right direction.

Re. next season's away kit - we should choose a colour scheme that doesnt clash with the Premier League badge. ;D

You know, generally speaking, we are quick to criticise when our club make mistakes, and even when they don't make mistakes sometimes...but this is a great idea.

Well done to those involved in this.

Someone will be along in a minute to explain why it aint though... :blue:

Good news.

I'm voting for not-black.

For those that haven't seen tonight's programme, the choices are:
1. Light blue shirt with white trim, navy shorts and white and Sky hooped socks

2. Yellow with claret trim, claret shorts and claret and yellow hooped socks

3. White shirt with navy sleeves and sky trim, white shorts and and navy and Sky hooped socks.

Personal opinion is that it has to be the yellow kit but if the the navy (why navy???) was swapped for claret on the other two kits we would have some absolute belters on our hands!

Don't understand the navy (maybe they are trying to push us towards yellow) but I think of the three I prefer the blue one.

I've always been a big fan of our blue kits but this to me looks like a City kit.

The good news is there is no black.

I don't know where navy comes into the scheme of things and of the three options, I would prefer the white one without the navy trim (surely it's not too late to make the trim Claret instead).

This may work Tom.

Nice one, works perfectly, thanks.

Yellow, I think for me. Just not enough claret involved in any of the others. Would have gone for sky blue if was same blue as last Wembley shirt. (big fan).

I notice in the drawings the badges are all still stupid matching colours though. Such a shame.

So we don't get to design a strip. Just pick one of the corporate ones. Shame I had a belter but haven't got BurnleyLiams' kit design talents to show it.

This should work

Another thing to factor in is what colour are the home shorts going to be if one of the away options are white? A return to sky blue of two seasons ago?

Definitely yellow for me

I hope not - doesn't look right with sky blue shorts.

I'd be pleased with the yellow kit. :)

I wanted white yesterday but it looks to much like PNE.

Yellow for me now.
Or as my son says lellow

Out of the three has to be the yellow.

Does none of the above count? What's wrong with the normal blue (probably a for it) with Claret or white shorts.

Never a fan of hooped socks either.

They look as though they're on the same shapeless template as the black and silver ones. Round collars are always a no no too, just don't look good.

Has to be the yellow, simply because it's not a Nob End or Coventry kit.

Prefer the light blue one but would prefer a little bit of claret in there somewhere.

Notice that the templates are of Puma design, has it been confirmed that they will be the manufacturers next season. I don't recall seeing anything?

Yellow for me. Got to love a custard coloured kit.

"I hope not - doesn't look right with sky blue shorts"

Agreed - just look at West Ham's current home kit

I like the blue one, but without a smithering of claret anywhere, it has to go to the yellow one. The white looks like a training kit

Looking at the 3 choices, has to be the yellow one for me, and it retains some claret in it.

I prefer the yellow, but wouldn't mind the blue one either.

Not the white one though, a light top and shorts with dark socks is just sartorially inelegant on so many levels.

Hooped socks, I say HOOPED socks.

Of course the yellow and Claret.

We once did this before, in the Andrew Watson days, but they were already manufacturing the shirts. Watson said that Burnley fans were thick and all you had to do was make them think they were choosing.


It's not like that this time. The three colours/designs were chosen some time ago but new man David Baldwin made the decision that the fans should be asked which one of the three we should go for and the one that gets the most votes will be the one selected.

I think the yellow one will win because it looks more Burnley than the other two. I take the point on the other two, they would look better with claret trim.

yellow for sure the only kit with claret in it, reminiscent of the 2011-12 which was a puma kit as well and similar to the 2006-07 away kit although that had yellow shorts


the navy blue probably goes back to the traditional burnley colours pre 1891

ClaretTony2014

I'd vote for the sky blue shirt without a second thought if it had a claret trim rather than navy blue

All 3 are an improvement on the black kit.

I would vote for the yellow shirted kit.

Also useful for cycling around Pendle in summer. B) - view external link (A)

Hooped socks. Frankly, as long as it's got hooped socks, the shirt can be any colour. Except black.

ClaretTony2014
03-12-2014, 10:12 PM
I believe this season's away socks are hooped - they are black and black :D

Definitely happy to see the hooped socks return. Yellow for me too.

Definitely yellow with blue as second choice then the white.

Can only be yellow for me. Other two are anonymous, training kit like.

When did we last wear yellow and claret away again? Wasn't that long ago no?

I'm not fussed longing as there is a premier league crest on the sleeves ;)

Voting now available via official website.

The designs have changed slightly and now look exactly the same as this season's away kits.

Hope Preston fans don't hijack the voting!

Lee Hoos told us in a meeting that there would be no more tonal badges - I see they all have tonal badges :D
