    As a Wolves fans, all I have to say it “Mkijis”?
    How drunk where you?

    As a football fan, all I can say is “Who cares about the shirts?”
    Ooooh, all white….. ooh, all black…..oooh, red with a patch…ooh, look, the socks have lines.

    Seriously, this is the kinda stuff that you canre about if youre into figure skating.

    Although it’s not super important I like the different kits from year to year. I don’t run out and buy each new one but I find them interesting. Not too many outlandish ones here. I think I’ll go for the Portugal one since it’s a little different. I also see that Slovenia is keeping the giant zigzag from EURO2000!

    Brazil and England look pretty much like they always have.

    US shirt looks like its been designed with a beauty pageant sash on it.

    I like the Potugal one too, I also like the simplicity of the England kit. Why are Slovenia playing in Aussie colours? Or do Australia wear blue for footie?

    Australia away jersey is typically navy blue i believe.
