I can confidently predict:

Some will love it.

Some will hate it.

Some will have no opinion either way.

Hardly Mystic Meg I know but slow news day.

Please give your (hypothetical) reasons for your opinion.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.

Interesting Story...

As a juvenile offender, the first time I "visited" Stevenage was during my incarceration at Her Majesty's request at Shepalbury Manor, an "Open Borstal" if you will, I digress... Anyway, the club, our club, offered myself and fellow misunderstood individuals tickets to a match, sandwiches, crisps and a cup of pop, wonderful!


Point being, I remember sitting on a fence and getting a splinter in my arse.

Moved to Stevenage as soon as afforded the opportunity, no regrets.

Please don't take the town and club for granted, nothing is perfect, smell the roses and look forward, learn to love.

As alumni of Barnwell, me and Wasp would have been forced to play sports on the pitch in front of the manor. If you recall a tall and slim athlete, with a natural ability on the ball, then that would have been me. If you can recall a 15 year old Bob Todd lookalike, that was Wasp.

There are two things people of my age should not wear: 1) replica football shirts and 2) Ramones t-shirts. Saying that, I'd wear a replica football shirt if it was a classic Adidas design. Maybe something like the Germany shirt from 1990.

I always assumed the Ramones were a fairly modern band. Like the killers or something. Didn't realise it was just a fashion thing for younsters. Did wonder why I see lots of t shirts but never heard any songs on the radio or in the charts.

Blitzkrieg Bop gets played quite often (but in places like 6 Music, etc), but I guess most of the youngsters who have Ramones t-shirts probably don't have a clue who they are.

Perhaps I should redefine my original response to say that it’s ok for middle aged men to wear Ramones attire, but not ok for anyone under 40. Whilst I’m being a clothing Nazi, can I also ban the wearing of super skinny jeans, boot cut jeans, jeans with tears in them, jeans with piping down the seams, and Crocs (on anyone over the age of 8).

If they are under 40 and can recite the lyrics to Sheena is a Punk Rocker, then in my view they can wear the shirt. The same goes with The Stones T Shirts. You should be able to recite the lyrics for Sympathy For The Devil at least

I really like this new concept - vertical stripes on the front, horizontal on the back with zig zag stripes on the arms.

The little bambi appears to be peering through the red bars on the vertical stripes.

It will be a marketeers dream to work with...Premiership here we come.
