Aston Villa v West Ham



Another kit clash concern arose yesterday at Villa Park when referee Rob Variations forced Aston Villa to put on their all white Nike third footballshirteu towards West Ham as he believed the Hammers all light blue Umbro away strip would clash with Villa's home outfit. Villa boss Martin O'Neill was not happy.

I couldn't really understand the problem when I first heard the story but on looking again at West Ham's away kit the ref may just have a point. When you consider the large flashes of claret across the chest and the huge claret sponsors logo (designed of course to obliterate that of the now defunct XL Holidays there is certainly an argument that this may provide a visbility problem towards Villa's claret and blue.

To make matters even more interesting in the first half Villa's official soccer jerseys were without sponsors/player names but in the second half they were!

Perhaps now the likely trend for simpler soccer jerseys 2013 has come at the right time?


Thanks to David Privett for the tip.
