    Default What colour do we play in?

    I remember a few seasons back, the launch of the new home shirt was delayed because we had to return them all to Umbro. I was talking to a staff member at the club who said Umbro made a mistake and sent the shirts in "Manchester United red" not Garibaldi Red, so they were all refused.

    I've noticed the last 2 shirts from Adidas, the tags states "Universal Red".

    I know this will only bother those who know Forest actually bought a seat ticket on a plane once for their trophy to sit in on the trip back to England, and those who are annoyed by "Notts Forest". The average fan probably doesn't care.

    Do you think there will be any chance at all that we might get to wear Garibaldi Red for our 150th anniversary season?

    It would be nice.

    But as its Adidas and we are seemingly no longer a big draw, we will just no doubt end up with the same crap template as everyone else.

    And there will be three different shirts - again - next season.

    The red has varied from season to season as long as I can remember

    There's no such thing. Somehow I suspect Garibaldi's revolutionary army spent a little less time worrying about the exact detail of their uniforms than we do. The original batch were commandeered en route to a slaughterhouse, rather than ordered from an Adidas sweatshop, and I imagine after that it was whatever they could lay their hands on.

    It's closer to Terry Butcher's England-home-shirt-red than anything.

    Arsenals anniversary kit was quite dark, is that the colour we wore when we gave them the shirts?

    Perhaps they are repaying the favour and this year's home shirt is just the 2011/12 Arsenal kit.

    I'm starting to think that the problem isn't the shirt colour, it's the fact that the players were shit.

    Maybe we should get a grey kit so we can blame it when it goes tits up again.

    Our kits of recent years have been a lighter, more glossy shade of red than those we wore in our heyday. Our last Victor Chandler kit was disgusting as it was almost orange.

    The colour in Ravi's picture looks about right to my memory. There is absolutely no way the shirts were as dark as pictured in RobbieLePop's image, that picture must have been altered. I had a few of those shirts from our European days and they were a very bright orange-red.

    A colour can be modified by tint, shade and tone, but the base colour remains.

    I think the point is that the club's founders decided the club's colours will be Garibaldi Red, not red. Other clubs play in red, we are Nottingham Forest, we wear the Garibaldi.

    Umbro understood this:

    But as I said last night, there's no such thing as 'Garibaldi Red'. The club founders picked red - just red - because they admired Garibaldi, not because they liked the specific shade of his army's uniforms (which didn't have one).

    The Arsenal thing is also a bit misleading. They were founded in 1886, so the darker kit they got from Forest may not have been the same colour as the original Forest colours 20 years earlier.

    Also, I was under the impression that for a while it was only the players' caps, not their shirts, that were coloured red.

    Besides, we'll never know what the original colours were because there was no colour photography and any surviving kit will have faded over time.

    Let's just stick with 'red', eh?
