Why was that jumper with the dog design taking up nearly half the front, worn last week against the Southern Saints? It is great that we have got rid of the 'Yawning Cat' from the jumper, but this new form of dog just trivialises the club again.

We will never be taken seriously as a club until we stop this infantile behaviour of wearing jumpers that should be worn by the kiddies playing in the little league at half time.

Yes,  we have the best colours and jumper in the league and it should always be shown off in it's best advantage.  Last week's jumper was completely below par.

It is a trick to sell more jumpers. Here in Europe the soccer teams now often wear a different shirt when they play in the European competitions. Way back in 1999 Lazio of Italy won the European Cup Winner's Cup wearing yellow instead of their traditional (and much better) sky blue. In America the baseball teams have a bunch of different uniforms and caps (away batting practice cap, etc.) that are all available for sale.

Now we have the "be more Bulldog" jumper. I don't agree with this trend, not everything is about money.

Yes your right.

 

As for the "Be more bulldog' catchphrase/campaign, why isn't it

 

"Be more Western"
