    Not too sure what peoples' opinions on this is but seeing Man yoo playing in an almost Chelsea kit made me think a little in regards to clubs' traditions etc. being eroded away in chasing the dollar. Man City play in an almost Manure-esque red kit for their away strip which makes me beg the question - where would you stand on the issue of Wolves ever taking on a kit which might lean towards Albion's kit (or indeed them leaning towards our colours) would you welcome it or would it even bother you?

    Away kits don't really bother me. The closest we'd come to an Albion kit is probably similar to United's away kit, really.

    If, however, our home shirt had "BOING BOING" on it, I might be concerned a tad.

    Still dark blue though isn't it? City's is Red & Black so not exactly a Man yoo kit but not something that's traditionally associated with them either is it?

    Although the respective kits do have an element of Chelsea/United about them they're more similar to inter and AC Milan - if we had blue and white it'd scream Albion whereas these ones are a bit more wide ranging. But no I wouldn't like blue and white... Didn't Albion have a gold ish away kit a year or two ago?
    I'd quite like dark blue, black with a little gold for our away kit actually!

    The red and black stripes are one of City's most iconic kits, as worn during 1969/70 when they had great success.

    Do keep up, Dewsbury.

    Dark Blue was always United's change strip - they wore it at Wembley in 1968.

    Manchester United won the European Cup in 1968 wearing a dark blue kit.

    Man City's red and black away kit is because, history – the black and red shirt worn in 1969 and 1970 during which time City won the FA Cup, League Cup and European Cup Winners Cup.
