So is the 'new' new badge going to be for the 150 year anniversary only, or the new badge for the foreseeable?

Seems like the club already have a pretty good idea of what they're going to do anyway, they can just pretend that the fans were involved.

Yeah, I have always had the feeling that their preferred option would be the 'gas lamp' shaped shield design.

The lamp looked like some PES West Midlands Village style shite.

Aye. If it's a choice of that or the modified Lerner badge, it's the Lerner badge every time.

I wish they would just fuck off with any references to a gas lamp.  If it's a shield, fine.  But gimmicks will just turn me off.

The correct answer here is that we should adopt the Punjabi Villans badge. Not even close.

is there any point in saying that the gas lamp story is almost certainly as fictitious as George Ramsay - manager?

Then someone with historical knowledge should advise them before they make a terrible mistake. Get it wrong once then fine, it can be rectified, get wrong a 2nd time and we will be a laughing stock

The gas lamp story will almost certainly never be proven to be right or wrong. Doesn't really matter, it's a story that's been around for yonks and is a great story, I doubt anyone really cares if it is or isn't.

They don't listen. The tours are apparently full of fiction but as PWS said, no-one seems to care.

At least it's not like the actual date we were formed which is a new invention. The gas lamp thing at least has been around since well before I was born.

The main problem with the current new badge is that, displayed smaller, it doesn't really work very well on digital, as all those little details get lost.

I bet the new one is very clean and minimalist. If there's a 'surround' to it, ie a circle or a shield, it won't be a thick one with writing in it like the current round one.

It'll be, as discussed before, a design that can be used in differing formats, ie like the Liverpool one.

Have to say, and i hate to do this as they're wankers, but the Wolves badge is very good. Very clean, distinctive, works well in all delivery formats.


You're not wrong.
