new design ...

Then give us your opinion.
anyone come out and said they really like the new badge ?? There is
only one here who definitely likes it !
that there is little to commend it as a design and how Daniel Levy comes
up with it supposedly "expressing our ambitions", I don't
know. Does it have a speech bubble coming out of it's mouth saying
"Get us into Europe Martin" ??
hoping for something a bit more unique rather than making it something
resembling that bird that they stick onto a concrete orb in the Thomson
advert in the programme.
Don't mind the new badge
really, just think we might as well have looked at the top of the Shelf
and West stands as we have a perfectly good cockerel and ball symbol
there. Why not use that, save on paying someone to come up with a
Haven't seen the new kit
yet but I suppose Spurs in their infinite wisdom will say that if you
don't like it don't worry we'll change it next year ... which they will.
I'm not sure why everyone's getting so
het-up, I think it's a good design with some nice touches, it stays true
to our history and previous badges - look how far the designers of the
Gooners took their badge and what did they end up with ? A Sunday league
clip art design that will date incredibly quickly where as ours will
still look fresh in 20 years. Also they lost their balls and we've
gained ours back !
I'm more distressed at next seasons shirt ! What the F*£^ are the
club playing at letting Puma put claw marks on it ? - and how many
makers logos can you fit on one shirt ! This over everything else is
going to undermine our image - not the new/old badge.
Love and hugs
By the way - I'm a graphic
designer so I have the eye!
What I want to know is
how much did the club pay some marketing guru to come up with what is
nothing more than a variation on a theme. Cut out all the
corporate baloney Levy. What we want is some success to go with
all these changes to show us they are for the better.
The money shelled out to
some arty-farty medja type could probably have bought us a new player !!
way of getting us to spend our money ! What was the print run on the "limited
edition" (new badge) silver programme ?
answer is, until it sold out!
agree with East Stan !
What's all this fuss about. Does it really warrant a "special
limited edition programme" with a four page spread ? It's not
as though it's that radical.
a bit disappointed when I first saw the new badge, but no doubt I will
get to like it. I don't suppose it matters that much what it looks
like as long as the team continue to perform the way they have been (Leicester
away not included).
The whole dumbing down of
the motto and the corporate claptrap about how the new badge links with
the club's tradition and the fact that Daniel Levy "feel(s) that
reflects the youth and dynamism of the Club, as well as expressing our
ambitions and aspirations" and "We have sought to reflect our
traditions as well as our reputation for style" really gets my
It's a badge for goodness
Tradition would be
keeping the Latin motto and some semblance of honour about why the
change is being made in the first place.
There is a slim-ness about it, which some
of the other cockerels haven't had.
Will Chirpy feel jealous ?

I think the new crest has a
real retro look about it. It harks back to the Glory Days, which,
with any luck, are about to return to WHL.
My first thought was meep-meep ... we've
got a Road Runner.
I think it needs toughening up a little.
I don't like it.
I quite like it.
Looks reasonably sleek and stylish.
Not quite 1960s cockerel on the ball style, but not bad.
I was just wondering what
people think of the new badge ? Me and my mate think the clubs
actually come up trumps.
I quite like the new badge and crest as
released to the public today. It is simple in line,
uncluttered, yet states a lot.
