It has been a busy summer for West Brom as they appointed a new manager and they have finally revealed the kit that Valerien Ismael’s side will be playing in next season.
The shirt’s central blue stripe carries the first verse of Psalm 23.
The words are woven into the fabric of the football club and now, for the first time, they are woven into the fabric of our home shirt 💙

The Baggies have always had similar home kits over the years, with the club known for the blue and white stripes that they play in.
And, whilst the colours obviously remain moving forward, it’s fair to say that the new home shirt is different to previous designs, with a bigger blue block dominating the centre of the shirt and white down the sides, with no stripes as has been the case before.
Are these 10 facts about West Brom actually true?
That decision hasn’t really gone down well with many supporters, who were not pleased with the new release, that was shared on social media this afternoon.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the new kit from a section of the fans on Twitter…
Looks alright on the players but the lack of stripes makes me uncomfortable. Doesn’t really look like a West Brom shirt

The more I look at it, the more I hate it. This is just not albion at all

Add the extra stripe down the middle then maybe it’d look alright

It’s quite a smart shirt, and having the lords my shepherd in the shirt as well is a great touch!
