Shirts for 2007/08: West Ham United (home)

A chance now to see the new 2007/08 home shirt for West Ham United, as created by Umbro...

Umbro's domination of the Premiership football market continues apace, taking over in this instance from Reebok while the Hammers' old shirt sponsors JobServe are now replaced with XL, an Icelandic airline company.

The shirt is officially launched on June 16th but you can pre-order it via the West Ham website should you feel the need to do so. Price: £39.99.

Speaking as a West Ham fan, I must be honest when I say that this is rather disappointing, but then I've said that about most of the other Umbro kits we've seen lately, so it must be just an Umbro thing.

What I dislike about it is it's too fussy. Too much going on, too many colours in all the wrong places and too many bloody Umbro logos everywhere. I feel like this could have been a really good design, but somewhere something went wrong.

Well that's just my opinion, but what do you think? Another in a long line of Umbro successes or another in a long line of Umbro failures? Leave us a comment or cast a vote using the facility below...


The final results were as follows:

Excellent: 60 (31%)
Good: 48 (25%)
OK: 34 (18%)
Poor: 23 (12%)
Terrible: 26 (14%)
