New Middlesbrough Badge - You decide...

Unbelievably, some two weeks to the day after we told you about the new Aston Villa badge, we now have a new Middlesbrough badge to contend with.

Out goes this one, and in comes this new one...

...which, you can't fail to agree, is a step up the evolutionary design ladder from the crayon drawings that Fulham and Villa ended up with.

It looks a bit old and archaic to me, though. Perhaps not dynamic enough for the 21st century. Anyway, the club assures us that the new badge has been designed to remind everyone of the club's 131-year history rather than just the period since 1986 when the club was reborn following some nasty business involving liquidation. Quite why they felt the need to redesign the badge twenty-one years ago to celebrate that, I don't quite know, but still...

So what do you think of the new badge? Crusty old relic from the dim and distant past or a symbol of pride in the history of the club. Tell us your views by leaving us a comment...
