After our recent CL and Prem games with City in our green strip, which was "first change kit for Champions League", how many first team games have we worn the Navy away shirt this season? If I'd bought that one I would be really miffed as I can only think of us wearing it in the following games

Fulham PL
Tranmere FAC

Which is particularly poor if you ask me

Its a shame because IMO it’s our nicest shirt.

Glad I bought one for £10 at the market 🤣

I bought the elite one because it's nice(est of the 3) and I'm not overly fussed who we did and didn't beat in it.

I have thought it is a nice shirt too, and was tempted to buy it for the same reasons. I was just thinking that for a supposedly 2nd strip we have worn it very little which seems a little off bearing in mind the price and that it is "The Mens Spurs Away Shirt 2018/19 is the official replica shirt the Spurs players will wear on the pitch". I'm not precious about the who against etc but we've worn it half as much as our 125 special edition shirts that were made for one 1st team match.

The elite ones are much nicer shirts than the replicas

I don't buy spurs shirts anymore but if i did it would be more for how they look rather than how many times they were played in. The training tops were usually my favourite.

I wasn't gonna buy any. The home shirt is piss ugly, all the normal repica ones are badly fitted. But the blue was was on sale for the test events at £50 for the elite. Much nicer fit and material, even on my non athletic torso lol.

Wore it away to West Ham in the cup too. We've done this before though, one if my favourite kits was the navy UA one with gold bands and we repeatedly chose to wear the yellow one over it despite the navy one being the 2nd kit and fully suitable.

Good shout, forgot about that game. When checking I assumed we would of worn the home strip as we did in the league game. Still, 3 times is not a great deal for a one season shirt.

Not a big deal, just think it is a bit off and highlights the pointlessness of 3 kits a season.

Does anyone know roughly how the shirt sizes have differed from UA to Nike?

I'm interested in getting one of our Nike shirts from last year (because I'm stingy and won't pay full price) but not sure if the sizes are the same

I'm sure the emboldened above is ALL about making money, nothing more than that.
For certain we could have 2 sets and cover every option

Not to mention that the green kit, if anything, caused more of a clash with City's kit than either of our other ones would've done.

Last seasons away and 3rd kits were utterly pointless as if one clashed, so would the other.
I didn't see the clash that City fans were bleating on about tbh.
Ours has dark upper with green all the way down. Theirs is single tone top, white shorts. Theirs has dark socks, ours doesn't.
Just a petty excuse.

I didn't know people had been complaining about it but I can kind of understand.

I did notice when watching – not up close like that, but with the camera at the typical high level for a match – that the two kits and the pitch created a weird kind of strobing Predator effect. Our kit is almost an exact midtone between the City blue and the green of the turf, and this sometimes created an optical illusion that people weren't where they appeared to be.

Not sure if that would have had any influence at pitch level though.
