Now that is how to promote a new shirt!

Now that is how to promote a new shirt!

Although to be honest my opinion is that shirts should not be changed every year, as they seem to be doing so with us now, you cannot knock the way Pompey are promoting the new away shirt!

I do not live in Pompey anymore but I was just phoned by pompey4me who told me a huge shirt - 180 x 120 foot apparently, as I have just heard Lucius Peart tell The Quay - is flying over Pompey to promote it, on what is a glorious day too...

If you are out and about in Pompey today get some photos if you can and forward them to me and/or put them in the Albums forum so others can see it.

The shirt is white again has blue sleeves, a blue collar and gold strips down the side apparently and has the brand new crest, which has been worked on for several months - if/when I am able to get hold of any images of the kit and crest I will get them on the site.

We will be using this new shirt for the first time this weekend against Fulham, so they will have to change from their traditional white.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

UPDATE: An image of the new away shirt has just been made available to me, so here it is

No - It's the new away shirt (2nd shirt, as we may have a European one as well) for next season.

It's awful, looks like a cricket shirt.

The home kit's all blue with gold trimmings.

i will tell you what i dont like... the new crest, maybe it'll look better when it isnt an image on a screen, but i dont particularly like it tbh, what was wrong with the 'traditional' old english style portsmouth fc font?

So when do we get to see the new shirt? Nort too sure about the new crest. Although to be honest it's all about the team in the shirt rather than the shirt itself
