Image for Birmingham City: Fans react to images of third kit being released

Birmingham City fans have been reacting to images that have emerged from the club releasing their third kit for the season.

The Blues have already announced and worn their home and away shirts this season, going with the traditional blue for the home kit and yellow with blue pinstripes for the away strip, but they have now announced another design for them to wear this season.

The club released images of their third kit on social media, which features a tiger-print style shirt coloured in what the club have described on their website as ‘Safety Orange’ and ‘Noble Green’.

However, the images did not go down well with the fans on social media, with plenty of them not shy in letting their feelings known when it came to the new shirt:

“That is grim”

“That’s horrific”
“This is hideous! Moving forwards please just let the players and fans vote for their favourite designs from 3 or 4 options for each kit and launch the ones that get the most votes after all they are the only people that wear them!”
“Ruined it with this one blues”
“Ruined my birthday thanks”
“Relegate us now”

Do you think Birmingham can be a force this season?

Yes, with Bowyer we could be

No, the squad isn't good enough

Quite why they are releasing it so far into the season is a bit of a mystery, but judging by the responses, the timing of the release doesn’t seem to be the most important part of the announcement.
