Come on you Ironworks

West Ham have launched another kit for the Juventus game, a tribute to the all navy blue outfit worn by Thames Ironworks FC. The Union Jack isn't a nod to Brexit, it was actually worn by the Ironworks side at the insistence of patriotic owner Arnold Hills. Our lads certainly look well hard in it and might be able to get some extra work as bouncers outside the Boleyn. Do think it should come with a stick-on moustache though for that authentic 1895 Thames Ironworks look.

Normally third kits tend to leave me cold, but for reason I actually like this. Maybe it's just so left field it's brilliant, although I'm not sure how historically accurate it really is. But who cares - it's not 'West Ham London' and the branding is discreet. Who knows - if I find £55 that's not earmarked for beer or curry, I might just buy it.

It's pretty accurate as far as records are avaiable, the badge is authentic too, there are pictures if grainy, of it. A great looking kit. Though its Oxford blue rather than the navy as some persist in calling it.

It's certainly not bad in an Oxford Blue polo shirt Pub Landlord kind of way. And distinctive from other kits… will be interesting how it looks on the pitch at the OS.
