CX+ Sport production method is to print as much as possible directly onto the material (with the exception of the crest). This included the Fyffes logo so I imagine the Harp jersey will be no different. Those early iron-on patches were never really fit for purpose.

Out of sheer curiosity, I wonder would permission need to of been sought from Diageo for the use of the logo?

Any copyright experts among us?

As if Diageo are going to complain about the free publicity this gets them,

Ah I know OF, the CX+ gear is very good quality in general and the sponsor logo was almost as good as being stitched in to the shirt. I just have memories of the massive Harp logos on the replica shirts back in the day and after one wash it was like wearing a lump of sandpaper inside the shirt....not so comfortable for wearing actually playing football lol

There will probably be a bit of craic in the overnight queue on Sunday for the 10am scramble for the retro jersey

This is absolutely bonkers. Just take names with sizes and deposits. Once again no forward planning from club in this regard.

Should there be a queue formed for the taking of names and deposits?

Ezeikial what point are you trying to make exactly? They are limiting the number of jerseys they are manufacturing incase they are left with excess stock. People queued up 2 weeks ago for the jersey and it sold out leaving people empty handed. The exact dame scenario could transpire again with this release. So as I say to avoid all this, simply take names, sizes and deposits in advance of the release of jersey. Problem solved quite easily. Or do you not agree??

I’m not sure excess stock is the issue. Could be supply chain, might be all their supplier would commit to deliver on time. Might also be a (misguided) attempt to avoid excess stock of some of the other merch already bought in.

Relax a little, I was only having a bit of a laugh at the farce that might well reoccur.

But, if the jerseys are limited and deposits were being taken for Xmas delivery, would this not lead to a queue too and disappointed fans?

But ezeikial that's the point i am trying to make. If they took deposits and names sizes etc then the club won't be left with surplus stock and there will be no fans left disappointed. Christmas and Santa lists put extra demand on items...

Jerseys may not be delivered in time for Christmas but this would imply that at some point in the new year there will be opportunity for people to get their hands on this retro shirt among others.

"In the new year we hope to explore a new range of classic retro jerseys and will seek input from supporters into these designs".

As a wannabe football hipster the thought of some of our older shirts being reproduced is exciting and marketed correctly could be a nice little earner for the club. White with various black trims is both timeless and iconic.

The red away jersey from 91 is a classic. As well as the double winning jersey from 79. With a history such as ours every decade has a classic jersey that can be identified with a piece of silverware nearly.

One that might be a little obscure isn’t a jersey but the white cup final tracksuit top worn in 79 with a hood. Black, red and white trim on the sleeve if I recall correctly. Nice, stylish and timeless.
The natural balance of Irish football has returned for good.
