Impressed with the new kit. It's fitting that out final season at the Boleyn should be marked by something traditional-looking (indeed James Tomkins looks ready to play in the 1923 FA Cup Final). It was inspired by the first kit worn at Upton Park in 1904. You could also imagine Billy Bonds, Alan Taylor and Graham Paddon playing in this. Like the fact it's got the dates 1904-2016 on the badge too.
