we don't need the third kit to take on any of the teams in the prem - any side with red or blue we play in yellow, and any sides with yellow/orange we play in our stripes. We need to play clubs that have red OR blue AND yellow in their kit - so unless we play Partick Thistle, Shrewsbury Town or Bradford City (maybe Luton and Oxford) we won't need to revert to our 1861 kit - but I'm sure we'll see it even if we don't need it, marketing innit.

Not strange, there's just technically no such thing as home and away kits, you'll have your first kit then your second kit that you play in if the colours clash, home team decides so you're only going to use your alternative kit if you're away. Chelsea always play in blue against Liverpool, utd, arsenal regardless of where it is, derbys especially Liverpool vs Everton, rangers celtic, Madrid barca they would always play in their 1st kit.

I know that you only change if thereís a clash. You could try arguing they arenít home or away kits to the millions of football fans. It is an away kit because you never wear it at home. Anyway, pointless argument. We agree on the rules.

There are several arguments here.

It is possible to acknowledge that the original Crystal Palace club only has a tenuous link to the current one, but does share the name and the area.
The relevance of the shirt can be judged on that basis.

The more important question is whether one actually likes the shirt.
Since I find Red and Blue to be the best colours in the league, the idea of light blue and white is decidedly dull and uninteresting. I really don't want to see Selhurst Park full of it, especially since we will hardly ever play in it.
I was attracted to claret and blue pinstripe with yellow cuffs as a kid because it was unique at the time and attractive on the eye. There is nothing exciting about this Blackburn Roversesque thing.

Rollo, I had this kit as a kid, but at one stage did it not also have a think yellow (pin) stripe incorporated?
would make a nice home kit.

 


Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?

Not that I recall.

There was the '69 blue cuff and neck version and the later yellow cuff and neck with the gold 'Crystal Palace' across the stripe.
I have a reproduction which is a mix of the two with the yellow cuffs and neck but with the badge between the stripes.

100%.

We will not play a competitive fixture in it.

fascinating excellent historical knowledge thanks

There are two clubs: Crystal Palace 1861-76 and Crystal Palace 1905 to present day. Every football historian acknowledges this. The reason why Palace won't change the date on the badge is because it would be rejected by the FA. The affiliation with the FA stopped in 1876 when the team disbanded.

I'm assuming that this 3rd will be a once off, and as a modest collector (80+ Palace shirts incl. many match worn/ prepared), I can foresee that this will become a valuable and much sought-after shirt in the future.

People are very enthusiatic about it in Argentina... Palace just gained a lot of new supporters. I'm sure Jules Speroni would approve !!!

 


Mine's a light and bitter.
