Third kit flamed online

West Ham have launched their third kit this morning which has seen plenty of negative feedback on social media.

The club announced their third addition of the season by saying:

“The Third Kit’s striking design features a White Shirt with a vibrant spark – inspired by the Club’s roots deep in the heart of London’s East End at Thames Ironworks.

With Coral Shorts and White Socks to complete the look, the Third Kit is not to be missed for Hammers everywhere as David Moyes’ men get set for another thrilling campaign at home and abroad. The Third Kit brings a slick and modern design twist to the Club’s proud industrial heritage” 

Supporters have been quick to share feedback on social media with a selection of comments below:

Is this a Blackpool kit with our badge on it? For next season why don’t you do a poll before they go into production?

Another abomination that disrespects the club’s colours. Who is responsible and who signs off on this crap. Criminal

Orange, ORANGE really. what are we a southern Blackpool.

Looks like been in a car crash

Worst set of kits we’ve had in a while

Who has been designing these kits this season they are terrible

this kit has got nothing to do with West Ham, could be any team’s third kit.

Why, just why?


In the words of late England, manager Graham Taylor ‘Do I not like Orange’ 

Time will tell whether this kit grows on the supporter base or it is sold off cheap at the end of the season for a tenner.

  1. Current kits are crap with a capital CR.

  2. isn’t this a few days to late?
    How on earth did we play against Forrest, in temperatures of 34 degree’s in blazing sunlight, in an all black kit? Surely in these days of fitness coaches and medical science somebody would have raised this issue? How was this allowed? Our players must have been a few degree’s higher than the opposition. Surely the common sense thing to do, was to wear the new, pure white third kit. It’s NOT rocket science. This is stuff we learnt at junior school.

  3. Bloody Moyes again. Can’t even get the kit right. He’s got to go 🤣

  4. Oh how I agree with you Rik.

  5. It’s not a West Ham kit……… I can accept the modern claret and sky blue home kit. The one change kit should be all white for when we play teams in red or Aston Villa/Burnley.
    A third kit isn’t necessary and I especially hope no-one buys this orange mess. (They’ve called it ‘coral’ but it isn’t)

  6. West Ham easyJet yuk!

  7. I know I’m going to cop it, but I don’t mind it.
    The orange shorts are a bit much though.
    Remember we had that teal, claret and yellow number a few years ago 😆

  8. I had to chuckle blaming David Moyes for our kit, I think he has slightly more important matters to think about!
    Looking at most premier league team kits this year, they are all dire and similar in their awfulness! Probably a conspiracy of sponsors and shirt makers. My polo shirt from 2015 still fits and being pure cotton is comfortable in current heatwaves!! I’ll save my cash for winter fuel bills!
