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!

Bournemouth's is the worst. It looks very MLS, like something the 'Houston Headers' would come up with.

And he looks like he doesn't know what day of the week it is. Maybe he thinks it's 2006.

The new badge is class... The claret is still too pink for my liking, however.

Do we get the proper star outside the top of the crest when we play in Europe?

Or is that only if we play in the Champions League?

I wish they'd have fucked the star off, at least to above the badge. It's gonna look daft in a few years when we've got three.

Well our small time core of fans chose to have one inside the badge so we won't have one outside the crest as is the norm because then that would mean we have two stars on the shirt to mark one trophy win. It's the sort of thing I'd hammer other clubs for.

Me too.

Someone in the 00s must have planted it in their heads by suggesting it with the idea of having it outside the badge like some trendy European club, it gathered momentum then the club shoehorned it in to make them happy and now they don't want to go back on it or admit they were wrong. Once it wasn't able to be put above the crest that should have been the end of it. I have tried and tried and tried to explain why it's a bad idea but the reality is there is a depressing amount of our fans who just haven't got a clue and want to copy European clubs.

We probably could have had it outside the crest in the Conference League next season but we're stuck with what we've got now, because people just couldn't help themselves and wanted to shout about a past glory any way they could.
