     Disappointed. The quality of Puma kits so far has been terrible. I bout last seasons and I had to return it. that’s how terrible the quality was.

  • We are stuck with the crappy stick on crest again! Completely spoils the shirt. Bloody tacky!!
    Have some respect for the badge, other clubs have their embroided. At 59 quid its a disgrace to have a stick on after thought!!

    I like the colour.  However, the extremely poor quality of fabric and the way it is put togethere belies the HUGE price being charged.  Puma I suuggest you take a look at Addidas, who are far superior to your shoddy goods. 

    Also, why have we still got an ‘ironed on’ crest?  Again, says it all about cheapness, Addidas had embroidered ones, much classier.
