Will Leeds Follow the Cardiff Blueprint And Change Kit?


So, what's more important, keeping the traditional team colours or leading the Championship by seven points?

When Cardiff announced their kit change, I asked the question whether West Ham fans would trade the traditional Claret and Blue in return for success on the field. Let's face it, Man City and Chelsea both sold their souls to get where they are today, so how does the colour of the kit compare?

Cardiff fans seem to be coping with the new colours and, indeed, the change of kit may have helped the team, with red a psychologically more aggressive colour than blue.

Now there are suggestions that Leeds may follow Cardiff's example. Red features prominently in GFH Capital's corporate colours and in the flag of Bahrain, whilst white is, traditionally, the colour of surrender.

Why shouldn't Leeds adopt red shirts, white shorts with a red stripe down them, and black socks, to mirror the change of ownership? It may be the kick start Warnock's team needs!

  1. The traditional Leeds colours are blue and gold actually. The white strip was introduced by Don Revie who wanted the team to emulate Real Madrid. However, changing strip isn't going to get this team playing any better.

  2. I think that's a really good idea. Where has the traditional white shirt got us? They want players to wear the white shirt with pride but to me there's like a curse on it. Im up for a complete make over. Bring it on. MOT

  3. Do you have a source to support the suggestion that Leeds are considering changing their kit colour following their change of ownership?

  10. clutching at straws now mate, dont worry i am sure someone will abuse you for this utterly boring rubbish. just one question from your quote - Now there are suggestions that Leeds may follow Cardiff's example. Who/where has it been suggested? pretty sure you just made it up for the hell of it - do you actually work? I reckon your just trying to get noticed for being this type of journo that doesnt care whjat he writes just so you can get a column in some crap newspaper! why dont you send you CV to the Sun, afterall they dont use reliable sources - just like you!

  13. White is also the colour of the most successful team in European History - Real Madrid

    "there are suggestions" - can you be less vague

    GFH's colour are more pink and grey
    Grey might be more appropriate for Leeds considering the gloomy cloud permanently over the club

  14. You are (excepting local Leeds press)the most consitent contributor to Leeds rumour sites. I think its about time you came out of the closet and said it straight? You have feelings for Leeds don't you? Nobody could spend this amount of time commenting on another club rather than his own if this weren't the case. Let yourself go and be honest with yourself - you have love pangs for the whites!

  17. so you believe we will change to scumchester red? absolutely no chance.

  18. Isn't it funny how th good folk at "Hammers til i die" don't need to write about other clunbs to get a response? Whereas on your own w,ham blog it's a case of "lets all hold hands and try and get in touch with the living". The most comments you've had in ages on your own club area 22, 9 from your "friend" stani and 4 from you. Perusing your efforts on your own site it's like watching a 3 legged cat try to bury a turd. Do you all travel to games in a smart car or a tandem?

    1. No no no, didn't you see, he had a 're-branding exercise' - it's not a West Ham blog anymore, so it's okay to write about Leeds 90% of the time.

      West Ham fans will have to go elsewhere for their club specific news now (as they probably already did).

    2. West Ham fans have stayed on the same site. THIS is the new site!

    Just in case anyone believes this fantasy, there is more chance of us winning the Championship this season than there is of a kit colour change...

  23. Maybe we Loiners should change our colours to claret and blue so that the sad journo will feel right at home with his obvious love of Leeds.

  24. haha not only does this leeds obsessive write a minimum of 15 articles a week on us/nw he now dreams up a 'suggested' change in our teams polish. wake up you tool, leeds arent a big club... there huge!! so unlike tinpot cardiff our heritage means something to the world. as for you, you dirty little bin-dipper, focus as much time as you do flicking one off over the mighty whites as you do the dildo boys, you may actually be able to write a half decent blog about them. then again... why would you? see you nxt season. MOT Danny.

  26. I0.23,too right he's clutching at straws. Have a look at his w,ham blogs and you'll see why, he's resorted to talking to himself the take up has been so bad. It's like a graveyard. The same 4 mugs arguing the toss about tossers. He keeps it going week after week too,you've got to admire his sense of stupidity.

  27. Right.I am getting a picture of your new stadia now.Parylmpic stadium with all those disabled parking places being put to good use .Running track outside and inside.The Robert Frederick CHELSEA Moore stand ,with a liitle jewellers franchise inside, probably called Sullied Gold ? The Brady box opposite the Moseley last Stand. Good plan ? Oh yes transferred from Fulham,the Jack Michaelson statue with his companion Bubbles.Could be on Cold Blow Lane ? Plaque attached with,Beat It, on ?

  40. are you doing your research for your next round of egoism,then find your little bit of art work to enable yourself a bit of self glee and go look at me,gosh i,m so cool,look what i can do,gosh i,m so clever and arty.please someone tell me how bad i am or how funny i am,or how annoying i am,or how right i am,or best of all swear at me i just love that,thats my fav form of attention,but never ask me to answer a valid question,because theres no point,because that would turn the attention inward and force me to ask questions of myself and my N.F followers...i will never forgive or forget what you did to that innocent girl and her family just so you could validate your vanity...that was just sick.
