Everyone’s a critic.
You pour your heart and soul in trying to create something beautiful yet stylish, innovative but classic, unique and still timeless, and this is the thanks you get.

Ah, not really.
We think it’s time to give something back to the fans – namely, the sacred shirt of their favourite team – so we’re un-sponsoring Huddersfield Town’s shirts this season.
That means they’ll go sponsor free this season thanks to Paddy Power’s Save Our Shirt initiative to clean up kits, though we wouldn’t have really had a choice if the kits were real after the reaction our atrocious duff jerseys received.
Now we know what it feels like to be Donald Trump for a day!
Terriers fans were loud and clear in their opinion that we must to slash the sash from the club’s new kit:

And pretty much everyone else thought the same.
You ruined their kit

If Ebola was a kit, this would be it

Though some thought we were too subtle
Wish the sponsor was bigger

And others saw an extraterrestrial significance
I like the little nod to #MoonLanding50 by being the only shirt able to read the sponsor from space

Constructive criticism was that maybe we could’ve added some shorts

While some doubted it was real until Huddersfield Town played a game in it… so it must be legit, right?
HOLY FUCK IT’S REAL ?♂️?♂️?♂️?♂️?♂️

Good god, they’re wearing it! They’re actually wearing it!!

The FA certainly thought so.
Huddersfield Town have been contacted by the Football Association about the large sponsors' logo the Championship side have said will feature on their kit for the 2019-20 season.

Though Newcastle stole some of our thunder with an even bigger joke
When Paddy Power were brainstorming this embarrassing Huddersfield Town kit launch to get them loads of attention and mockery, they weren't banking on Newcastle announcing Steve Bruce as their new head coach about quarter of an hour later.

Never change Mike Ashley, never change.
But then we revealed it was all just an elaborate ruse.

Some took the news better than others.
@phildelves they’ve genuinely mugged us all off.

fair play PP gone from the worst to the best shirt overnight

THANK FUCK FOR THAT.

And some took it a bit too well…
— Lewis Hall (@lewisjhall2002) July 19, 2019
While there were others keen to join the #SaveOurShirts campaign.
Fair play ??wish @BurnleyOfficial could of done this

That’s sick I wish paddy power sponsored Liverpool

Inspired by the perhaps unrealistic #SaveOurShirt thing from Paddy Power at Huddersfield, here's a rough impression of how this season's #bhafc shirts would look without the sponsor logo pic.twitter.com/K7vu3LC4p1

Find out more about Save Our Shirt here and maybe other clubs will clear the sponsors from their kits too.
