    Hello people :)

    Yesterday many witnessed the usual thing - Germany winning everything as usual (Germany vs Cyprus 4-0), but they have got a new jersey for the Euro 2008 matches.

    Oops it looks kinda old school to me... and when I say 'ugly' I meant slightly ugly lol

    and for one of them, it's 70Eur (102usd)... even the children size are 50eur (73usd). I could potentially buy... er... an ipod shuffle?

    anyway what do you guys think?



    Press is here in German: http://www.press.adidas.com/de/DesktopDefault.aspx/tabid-11/89_read-8351/
    In the pic are Podolski and Schweinsteiger. Lukas, you forgot to pull up your socks!!!

    I think Podolski has it right because Schweinsteiger looks like a kid


    What are you talking about ;)

    Lukas Podolski is on the left, Bastian Schweinsteiger is on the right, if that's what you're implying. Or you meant you're suppose to pull your socks down :D



    omg, for clubs, it's Chelsea all the way :D


    that's just the shirt, so the shorts will cost you some more bucks... They're milking my pocket dry!!!

    When I first saw those shirts I thought they were just their training shirts, they are so yucky! I have an old Fifa world cup one, that one was nice!

    I was going to buy the old (2006) one, but like buying a mac, I checked on many sites beforehand, so I didn't buy any...
    It will probably be really cheap now since many sites will be clearing their stock.
    But I don't want to buy an old one.

    as long as they don't go over the elbow.

    as long as it's Germany or Chelsea winning.

    it's not that ugly...but i agree the older one from 06 is better. i bought one for the world cup, haven't worn it since. i wonder what the rest of the gear is going to look like because I want a new adidas track jacket. and i'd probably buy that and wear it more often than a jersey.

    70€ is a lot, so I'd buy it only if I were to regularly wear it instead of just letting it sit in the closet...

    It looks kind of retro, not as good as their '06 jersey. But I kinda like it.

    The worst this year has to be Chelsea's Day-Glo yellow jersey - gag.

    lol, many people look dorky when there's press and cameras flashing around :D


    And by the way, who here is actually a German football fan??? and Jasonbot, is this your favourite team, or actually, did you watch the match on Saturday night? I've heard of something called the Kaizer Chiefs when I went to South Africa few months ago, but I didn't see local football on TV. Oh well.

    Those guys need big glasses and PC laptops/PDA's, then tehy'll look dorky & nerdy.

    So, I just got the shirt because My parents went to Germany at the time of the world cup (but didnt actually watch any games :O)

    Kaizer Chiefs is just a noob soccer (not football, in RSA its called that coz its so much more rural) team. Their biggest rivals are the Orlando Pirates and the Mamelodi Sundowns. I don't watch local soccer much anyways..

    Hornets are my second team, stand up if you're top the league stand up if you're top the league.
