    I agree with you on pretty much all of those – particularly the mess they’ve made of the Powerpoint-slide French shirt and the insultingly corporate Puma kits – all except the Italian one. I saw it live yesterday and found it’s actually two fabrics – one solid and one mesh – and the gold sets it off just dandy. I was going to buy it. Then I realised I’m blonde and would look ridiculous in it.

    Those gratuitous Puma shoulder logos are awful.

    All those plain red jerseys are boring. Croatia, Greece, Spain, Romania, Holland all look good.

    Christ, they’re all a bit dull aren’t they? Croatia wins, as always.

    French change shirts should be white. Ever was it thus, ever should it be.

    Did you know that the Puma kits are a sort of funny mesh with rubber logos (maybe 3mm thick too) stamped on them? This certainly adds an extra dimension to the subject.

    Or they were for the African Cup of Nations. Maybe we Europeans have less futuristic fabric. But it surprised and intrigued me when I found this out (I was in a Paris sports shop trying to decide on a souvenir shirt and left empty handed after an hour of umming and arring).

    Anyway, my friend Martin and I have Sweden shirts for the Euros, having decided to support them in England’s absence. They’re very comfortable shirts, for whatever that’s worth.

    There is a secondary logo on the Polska jerseys because they took the Polska off of the top section that has the Polish White Eagle. It is not supposed to be a EURO 2012 logo, they had that on the jerseys in the 06 WC as well. I don’t like that Puma hasn’t screened any designs on the jerseys anymore as they did for the 06 WC.
