This is a replica of the shirt it is based on:

You only need to look at the crest on the original to see why I am uncomfortable.

I can't make out the crest all that well, and I'd like to know more about that shirt.

The symbol is the facses, Inca, with the St. George's Cross reflecting its presence in the Milan Coat of Arms.

The crest is a version of the central element of this:

 -

which you will probably recognise as one of the primary symbols of Mussolini's Fascist party.

Spangles can quote you chapter and verse, but a after Mussolini came to power, the Fascists forced all of the major football clubs with names that were not sufficiently "Italian" to change them: Internazionale became Ambrosiana (after Milan's patron saint), Milan (briefly) became Milano, Genoa became Genova, etc. By the time of the formation of Serie A in 1929, popular resentment at the whole campaign succeeded in Inter being able to play under the name of "Ambrosiana-Inter", which they were saddled with until the war.

In keeping with some of the economic aspects of their ideology, the Fascists were also big on forcing mergers among smaller clubs in order to make them larger and theoretically stronger. Roma, Fiorentina, Napoli and Bari are all the products of such "suggested" mergers, but Inter were not immune, as they absorbed U.S. Milano, which had been the third club in the city for most of the first quarter of the 20th c.

US Milano played in black and white halves, and their incorporation led Inter to wear this bizarre kit for a season or two (in addition to the collar, note the imposed additon of the fasces to the scudetto):

Having seen our new Topps Tiles/jako disaster I hid under a stone but have just come out (of the stone).
At least we'll be playing it on the floor this season. Suicide inspiring.

Much better than anything we've had in years. Frank might need to lose a few pounds, though.

Agreed, a huge improvement.

Now only if you could get your old crest back.

Those Fulham tops look like polo shirts.

But as you say better than most of your recent offerings. It takes a special kind of creativity to completely fuck up a white shirt.

i don't think there'll ever be a more amateurish crest than the current Fulham job. it's just not possible.

I don't think that's ever going to happen, to be honest. Too many of the young supporters like it - it's only the old fogies (and young fogies like me) who want it gone. It's not like the old crest was that amazing, anyway, just that the new one is so unattractive. In my perfect world, we'd playing with this:  -

(not the wembley 1975 bit), but that won't happen either.

Wait until you see North End's latest effort.

Kudos to Fulham and Nike for a nice cleanly designed kit. Doubly so for not switching to white shorts like everyone else as well.

I had forgotten about Bullard, will he be fit for the season's start (and will he fit in with Sanchez's football)?

He's training hard to be ready and the last check-up with the doc in the USA was positive, apparently. I'd be very surprised if a fully fit Bullard wasn't part of Sanchez's plans, particularly as Brown appears to be on the way out.

Latest from Coventry - voted by 66% of fans who responded to the competition

Not a lot to get excited about - or angry about.

PS - Like the Fulham kit, nice and clean

That grey on the Coventry kit makes it look like my kettle. The colour is making a worrying advance in to current kits.

Speaking of which Mr Tottoh, are you referring to your current black/grey trimmed and bisected monstrosity or have they managed to design an even worse one?
