What on bloody hell is THIS? - Kits 2012-2013

http://www.footballkitnews.com/6909/...me-away-third/

Please tell me this is not what I think it is

Even the banconi in any mercato can do better than this.They look like - no, not quite - they look effortless. Any of the Curva groups could do better than THAT!!!

Holy christmas eve... I want anything OTHER than Kappa!! :frustrat:

Every energy, smile, blink, inbreath, heartbeat skip, gesture of longing in my life comes from you,Toro!

The stars are the eyes of all our beloved and departed fellow Granata, reflecting their love upon their kin... us.

Yeah I have to say the shirts look cheap as hell, not just the fabric, the design as well.
Hopefully they'll be cheaper than usual, I haven't bought an original shirt since the nineties, guilty as charged. I reckon if it's less than fifty euros I'll buy it, otherwise they can keep it, I already make it to most home games anyway and have spent enough on beer there.

I didn't think it was possible to ruin such a beautiful colour but I was wrong.

Atleast sponsor is small and takes up little space...

I like clean shirts...that being said yeah they probably could have done a little more...

Uninspiring to be certain.

The thing that annoys the most is not just the design, it's the material, I mean they do look cheap as hell, yet they charge top money for them as usual.

For the future I hope we go for a Retro look, given the club's heritage and history, we could have a modern interpretation of the shirt Grande Torino wore, in terms of colour, cut, neck and so on. It would be stylish as heel.

It's more the sponsor placing on the shirt than anything else.

No, the blue away kit is simply punch-in-the-face ugly. The others are painfully disappointing in light of the return to Serie A. Something more classic and powerful was really in order.

These kits look like someone at Kappa finally opened their email about "some order from Torino" at about 23:58 the night before the press conference.

Seriously, they would have been better off by simply re-cycling one of their past efforts (two of which are ably modeled by my kids to the left).

Why would a sponsor allow its logo be in a position easily obscured? "a" missing if you move hand a bit, etc.
