I've seen all of these before. Surely you can see there's a difference between what is essentially a typo by someone ironing letters onto a top and getting someone's whole name wrong on a big marketing campaign. Closest comparison is probably 'Mike' Smalling!

Just as an aside, I don't know who was responsible, and I'm sure a lesson has been learned, but it does give the impression (rightly or wrongly) that the Women's team is a bit of an afterthought. Especially in the wake of Casey Stoney leaving.
The point was that human error can happen when humans perform manual tasks.

Anyway, the marketing material was posted on Adidas' website, presented by Adidas, and created by Adidas. It was all Adidas. And Adidas knows her name very well, so they made a human error.

There's lots of things to harp on about the club, but they have literally nothing at all to do with this incident.

When, in any of my posts have I said it was United's fault?

Having said that, I know these campaigns are done in collaboration between Adidas marketing department and United's sponsor servicing departments, with the assistance of United's in house design team. I know this having worked for United.

Surprised by the Sunday league comments and negativity…. Monotone logo on a shirt that harkens the days of 1960’s United…. Modern classic.
Will look amazing too when Maguire lifts the PL trophy wearing it too

Goalkeeper shirt looks naff, but the player home kit is definitely one of my favourites for a long time.

For any of you fellow tubby feckers, please let me know what the fit is like for the authentic home shirt, cheers.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the keeper kit either. Reminds me of this:

I’ve seen the short sleeved authentic kit for sale, but not the long sleeved authentic kit. Has anyone come across that?

Hopefully that GK kit pattern will give headache and nausetting feeling for oppsition team.
Home kit though, classy, clean, neat as you get. The subtle pattern is a nice touch

The new PSG away kit looks good.

But what is it with Nike and that little bit cut out at the back of collar on all their designs lately?

Goalkeeper pattern reminds me of the planet jupiter.

Players home kit is one of the nicest for years but that isn't saying much.

Should be wearing the yellow kit in our upcoming friendly.

Happy to get stripes back on the sleeves on the home but would prefer a bit of black on the colour.

i think the new kit looks minimalistic, with a hint of retro vibe, classy, and elegant.Tremendous imo

Only thing holding that back is the sponsor imo. It looks weird. I wonder if anyone's done a mockup of the kit with the Aon sponsor. Bet it would look really clean.

I like it a lot more after seeing it Saturday than I did when it was just leaked images. I think it's the design of the socks tbf

Why can’t adidas do that for us :mad: Is that the away kit??
Because (unpopular opinion incoming) unless you're Bayern specifically, Nike kits are usually better, more modern designs than adidas kits. Switching to adidas was a mistake imo

‘It’s the same wood grain as the first tree cut down to make the stands at the North Road ground, home of Newton Heath, a nod to United’s heritage, and also wood.’

- Adidas, probably

Our home kit actually looks....... really good? I didn't think I would want one, but I'm really tempted now.

Only bit I don't like is how short the stripes are in the shoulder, but understand that it's due to sleeve sponsor requirements. Can't help it

Have you seen the shit they've been serving up for Liverpool? I've been disappointed by some of the Adidas stuff, and I've really disliked a few of them, but Nike have made some awful stuff since we switched. For a few seasons they gave all of their teams the exact same template home and away kits, with only the colours being different. The third kits have been much more experimental, and there have been some really good ones, but on the whole, I don't think they've been any better than Adidas.

Hate how good PSG shorts are. Reminiscent of iconic Chicago Bulls jerseys from the 90s.

Just me or does the kit look a size too big on all the players? The sleeves look so baggy.

Based on aesthetics - sure, it was a baaad mistake. Adidas is so vanilla most times. But when signing these kinds of deals, the board couldn't care less about aesthetics. It's about cold cash, and Adidas offered more than Nike. We would be sponsored by Warrior Sports, Diadora, or Kelme if they offered the most, as would any other team in the world.
