Could live with this as our shirt next season. With the current round badge it would be close to perfect.

I like that alot. I just hope villa fans are not gonna start moaning that we are promoting sugary drinks.  We all know cokes not good for you but you have thw choice not to drink it.

Gambling understandable and im board with the protests on that

Why is that then? We all have the choice not to gamble, too.

Is that a serious question? Do you not know the implications of gambling is?

Yes, I do, as it happens. The vast, vast majority of people who gamble do so responsibly.

I am not making any point pro or anti gambling, but I'd guess that if you wanted to suggest something as not as bad as gambling, then I wouldn't go for sugary drinks, which without a doubt contribute to way more deaths, and way more load on the NHS than gambling does.

If you wanted to be really pernickety on moral standards, you could also look at some of our recent owners, Wes Edens and the origins of his fortune (sub-prime mortgages), Tony Xia (fraud) and Randy Lerner (predatory high interest rate lending).

Why do England have blue in their kits? The last time I looked the St Georgeís Cross doesnít have blue in it.

To represent the cross of St. Andrew and annoy the Scots.

FWIW, I've always thought the nicest England kits are the red shirts and white shorts, as worn in the World Cup final.

The Dutch don't have orange in their flag, the Italians don't have blue, Germany has no white. It hasn't held them back!

Back to Villa kits, I hope that they come up with something better for us than the new Scotland kit and leaked Yanited one.

The orange and blue are the colours of their respective royal houses, and the old German Imperial flag was black, white and red*.

*One of the main reasons the Nazi flag had those colours.

I guess back in the late 19th century, there wasn't the 'marketing' that you get now. Apparently the first kits England played in were cricket whites, which is why the tops were white. I think back then, possibly even more than now, England and the United Kingdom were seen as more or less the same thing, so English people were far more likely than those in Scotland and Wales to use the Union Jack.

And blue, sir, is the sainted blood of our dear rulers.
