They should be selling us overpriced new brand calendars, mugs, kits, badges, and assorted tat, right away. What the heck is wrong with the commercial department? Don't they want our money? It's a DISGRACEô️

It is; I want my new tat on Sunday!

I wonder if there had been plans, but given what we need, that they have shelved it so that instead of focusing on new flags and scarves and shit, we focus on properly supporting the team.

I doubt that very much indeed.

Do uou reckon it just isn't ready then?

Not a peep about it today. I guess there was still an awful lot of stuff to sell off with the old badge mind.

Not sure how long it's been there because I live in Perry Barr and get the train into town, but I saw the new crest/badge on the Barton's today and thought it looked fucking great. Much better when it's large.

We drove past on the way back to the Expressway. They've just put 'Barton Arms' haven't they?

They must be rebranding too, it'll have the traditionalists up in arms.

My adopted home town of Luton is buzzing. Very happy to see the old badge gone and this one showing up a lot. Looks good, happy with it. Just in time for back in Europe. I could put it on a bunch of threads but how lucky we are with Unai. May we go farÖ

You can see the star less on the new one than the old one. That's good.

Wasn't there some talk of the club doing something around the new badge launch on the last day of the season?

Its the colours and the new lion that does it.

The colours are way more vibrant and the lion has more detail.

In a few years the star will be removed and then it'll be perfect.

Yes that's it, even in the 70s badge the colours were a bit more 'washed out'.

Looking at that array of badges, our new effort is clearly one of the best, but outside of the overly detailed old fashioned numbers such as Luton, Newcastle and Burnley, HOW BAD does West Ham's badge look - Typography is all over the place and the hammer iconography looks shite!

Also love the way they've tacked on 'London' at the bottom, just to tap into the tourist market - There would be absolute uproar if we did something similar, adding 'Birmingham' to our crest!  😂

Love our new badge - Just need to ditch the star. 👍🏻

Yes, it will start to look messy adding another star every year from 2025 onwards ;D
