Season 17/18 St Mirren Kit

Recommended Posts

Last seasons top was paying homage to 87 cup winners. it was a good marketing ploy. if you don't try these things you'll never know. as we all know at St.Mirren every penny is a prisoner and it's hard to come with a different top every year when you play in stripes or hoops.

I know the rationale behind the kit - I just did not initially like it. And I am all for trying out new ideas. Some work better than others and some are a total disaster (the Bib!). I doubt if I am the only supporter that has not liked every single strip that the Club has produced over the decades.

He's right though. The strip last season, when it was finally unveiled was done so to almost unanimous praise from the supporters. 

Not by me it wasn't anyway , hated it ! Hated it back in the 80s too. One of my biggest regrets is that we won the cup in 87 wearing a strip that wasn't really a St Mirren strip !

Absolutely correct. 

Won the Cup wearing an Ayr Unitit top. 

Disgraceful. 

Should have worn a traditional black and white striped top, especially made  for the Cup Final.

Phoned the club yesterday afternoon and spoke to reception who advised that the strips might be in end of next week if not then start of following week.

With regards to the farce of yesterday's tweets I just wish the club had put out an update saying that the strips would be here within a week or so and on sale for say the 4th of July. Wait til the proper photo shoot has been done before releasing crappy photos of wrong strip.

I wish the club had been updating the website giving fans an update rather than silence with regards to strip release date. I would imagine practically every club in our league has their strips on sale by now. Shoddy!

The fans 'closed' day is also a farce. We still seem to be struggling with doing the basic PR stuff right.

Correct ! Although you wouldn't have thought that at the Smisa quiz  , last night. Great night , Directors/ex players team , management team , current players team (including new signings) and around 60 fans. Shame there wasn't a bigger turnout of members , I would hate to think that some of the current agendas flying about was the reason behind some supporters non-attendance !

All we needed last year and this Season was a copy of the 2012/13 Strip with very minor changes, if any.

Infact, a different Sponsor is good enough change.

Last years top should have been the Third Top just like the 135th anniversary one.

Traditional Black and White Stripes only for 1st Kit.

3rd top ? Would have thought you would have that down as ripping fans off .

For special occasions, like anniversaries only 

And hopefully at a reduced rate.

If only 


I believe that would be a top seller (No pun intended)
Not so keen on the white panel on the shorts, keep it simple and traditional. Latest version I'd say is the best strip for a few seasons though.

I seem to remember that in 1959, another cup winning season, we played in virtually all white!

Correct although they changed to stripes for the final. Played the 62 final in a white shirt. Won the 67/68 league with a white shirt with thin black stripes.

There have been plenty of seasons when the team haven't played in a "traditional" shirt.

Like it or loathe it, at least the new kit is bespoke.

Here is the Saintees kit for the forthcoming season

and this is Breadalbane Amateurs, who play in the Perthshire Amateur league, from last season.

How are St Johnstone going to get on in away games at Rugby Park? Sometimes you have to wonder at some people's thought patterns. For example....

1. We've got millions of people looking at Glasgow for the opening ceremony - I know, let's blow up some shitey tower blocks.

2. Our home kit is blue and white - I know, let's make the away kit white and blue.

3. Let's have an open day - I know, let's restrict it to season ticket holders.

 

In all seriousness, what the fcuk went on at those meetings? Class A substances?

The away shirt being a negative of the home kit apart, I was highlighting that the kit supplied by Joma to the Saintess is, quite literally, a pub league kit.

In 93/94 when we had this as an away kit

A1993-94.jpg

at an away game v Dunfermline the ref wouldn't allow Saints to wear that so they had to run out to a local sports shop and buy a full set of all sky blue kit.

Have you seen Sellick's change kit?

what are they going to wear away to Hibs?

Yeah, one of the Aberdeen clubs pre 1903 merger played in a kit that colour.

I am assuming thar this was in their pre utter hatred of Rangers/The Rangers period.

I agree, it was a great night but it crossed my mind too that the incessant criticism of SMiSA that is going on might have affected the attendance.

60 is about the normal attendance at SMiSA events, (the legends night being an exception)  half a dozen or so posters asking for more openness about matters which should be made clear is hardly incessant criticism. I want SMiSA to succeed more than anyone i know, being more open could help recruit more members. The SMiSA board agreed at the AGM that communications could be better and promised to improve on that, they are working on it. I would doubt that the debate on here regarding SMiSA had anything to do with the attendance, more likely that it being held during close season/summer holiday period and having an entrance fee for those not contributing £25 a month or more would have had an adverse affect on attendance.
