  1. I’m with you on West Ham, I thought it was really sharp. Especially up against the all-red of Liverpool. But I thought Villa looked a bit odd in all-claret. Not bad, just odd.

  2. Totally agree on the WHam’s alt look. very sharp, as are ManCity’s stripey socks. very cool… but is any kit better than my Rovers???????
