I like it. Fresh, historic, not too cartoony, but will look nice on sky sports ;-)

I like it too. I hope an enamel badge could become available.

Don't mind the design although, from a technical point of view, the castle seems very dark against the outline even on a computer screen so I'm not sure it will stand out on a badge.

The Supporters' Club logo and mascot outfit might also need changing now that the yellow/orange elephant has gone??

I was unsure, but, having now seen it, I like it. Seems to have the right mix between historic and contemporary.

Not sold on the red and green. Red and green being coventry's civic colours doesn't really mean much to your average coventrian, whilst blue and White are recognisably cov's colours.

Itís already been put onto the home page of the club website and looks pretty good to me.

Still maintain that the castle is way too dark, you can barely make it out on the website and my tablet's on full brightness... It's not growing on me yet.

I like it.
Iíll continue to like it as long as the primary shirt is dark blue and white hooped, and the numbers are on a plain patch, either dark blue or white, with the numbers contrasting clearly.
I found this seasonís red and gold was good to photograph, standing out well from dark background colours, so while Iíd prefer a red and white hoop, Iíd be happy if the club stuck close to last seasonís colours for the change kit.

It looks a lot like my Freeman's crest and I like it. Coventry United play in those colours. Maybe an away strip could be developed based on red/ green ?

Tradition is great.

Sky blue would be better. For the Cov supporting city fan market.

You might have your wish... almost.

The proposed away kit for next season is predominantly red with a thin line of green on the seams. It looked very good on the graphic shown at the Fans' Forum, hopefully the actual kit will look even better in reality.

That's good, mind you I am a bit thick because it never occurred to me why COV and CCFC's away colours were often red. My research since suggests it is because of the red in our civic colours, or not ;-)

Not to mention that red and green are Leicester Tiger's club colours.
