    Wasn't like that after the first half ,I think they tired towards the end.

    It is a nice kit I think, but it does seem to be a bit marmite, they both do this season.

    I guess the obvious kit example is that infamous grey kit Man U changed out of at half time in what, 96? So yes it must have been harder to pick out your team mates, but they did choose to have that kit and presumably trained in it.

    What you can't legislate for is how your kit settles in with the opposition - I think this was done a while back, but on Wednesday, Boro were playing in a dark green away kit (shirt and shorts) which must have been quite hard for players to pick out if they did have any form of defective colour vision, to be honest I found the whole thing a bit hard to watch because the easier way was then to pick out our players because they were wearing white shorts as the shirts clashed too much.

    I wonder how much it's actually been studied - but a lot of recently successful teams play in red (Man U, Arsenal, Liverpool) or of course blue (Chelsea, Leicester and Man City) but money can talk as much there (especially with Chelsea and City, the others tend to build better than throw money at it). Or indeed how much you see the same pattern in other leagues. But it has to help if you can see your team mates quickly when spotting a pass.

    The kit is an absolute abomination & whoever made the decision to wear it should be sacked immediately

    We've played Huddersfield 100s of times and our Red has never ever clashed with their Blue & White

    I know there has definitely been a study regarding goalkeepers with this. They found that loud bright kits made goalkeepers appear bigger to opposition. Hence so many keepers having neon shirts.

    As I mentioned previously from experience myself and teammates always preferred the bright kits as it definitely allowed better peripheral vision for us to pick passes.

    I don’t mind a different third kit. However we play in red whenever we can. Always have done, we aren’t some time pot Birmingham city / Cardiff who come to CG and wear yellow for no reason. Yesterday should have been in red no question.

    You can't get more of an old traditionalist than me, but with the current trend to having several kits running at the same time and the business opportunities that creates, you can't really blame the club for pushing the envelope.

    The very fact that there are so many kits around these days creates a headache for the designers and, looking around the league, I don't think we have the worst kits out there by a long chalk.

    And, when we win, I don't really care what colour we wear. I'd feel bad playing at the CG in anything but our proper kit, though.

    Reflections on Steven Reid, almost 24 hours after he had got the team to win...
    1 He used the analytics and videos to formulate his approach to the Huddersfield game;
    2 He appears to have convinced the players that they had more freedom to express themselves;
    3 The players appeared to respond positively, playing with aggression and purpose;
    4 He said he didn't really want the head coach job - but maybe that is just quiet modesty for the media, and inside he singing "It Shoulda Be Me".
    5 As my old Grannie used to say, as she milked the cow in the kitchen, "one swallow doesn't make a summer" - if he were to be in charge on Saturday coming, at home against another direct team who like to con the ref and leave a boot in, will he be able to engineer a first home win of the season?

    He looks like a modern exponent of the game, and not afraid to let his players do the talking for him.
    And every great manager has to start somewhere with no track record.

    Good news, the club have confirmed that Reid will remain on the coaching staff.

    Personally I hope he remains irrespective of whoever comes in when we make managerial changes. Someone that will always know the players and the clubs football indentity. He can provide a much smoother pathway from academy to first team with always being around the club.

    If we take Gary Brazil as the example of having a consistently good person around the club then it's an approach we should take.

    He spoke well in his interview, so yeah, based on that alone I'm happy enough he wasn't shifted.

    Good chance for him to learn from Cooper too.

    30/09/2021: It's only 8 points to the play-offs. Doesn't matter if we're 20th having lost three times as many games as we've won so far. I fancy us now that Hughton's gone.
