Impossible Is Nothing ;-)

 
  1. Roger Foden

Yes it is .....its imposible for Adidas to come up with anything thats not bland.

 
  1. Jay

Nike may go with this sort of thing for the away.

I&#039;m not a fan of &quot;V&quot; design, but I think it fit this kit and I like it, expecially its colours. You have only to change &quot;1988&quot; with &quot;1888&quot; on the collar in both kits! :wink:

 
  1. Paul - curswine

Ha the man has a good eye!<br /><br />I like it too, nice design, I can see myself liking nike&#039;s new V range.

 
  1. GEISER MENOIA

sorry for the 1988. =(

Most celtic fans would worry that the V looks a bit too much like a sash to be honest... :none:

Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the <br />simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just <br />do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing <br />without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back <br />to get more.
