We here at Club 25 abhor gambling-related sponsors and always cheer for their departure from football clubs, but when Mansion’s contract with Palace ended following the 2016/2017 season, we were greeted by yet another Chinese betting company; ManBetX, who remain on the shirts to this day.

Although, in our case, the sticker has two small puncture holes; just our luck, if it hasn’t peeled yet, it has holes in it. A very simple, stretchy affair on the face of it, the Italian designers went the distance by rendering one half in red and one half in blue, lining up perfectly with the stripes down the centre of the chest.

This crucially followed the excuse that ‘there’s only so many things you can do with a striped shirt’ which attempted to explain why the home shirt was so naff, with Parish finally blaming the fans themselves and those filthy continental fellows by saying ‘we take a lot of inspiration from the fans and look at kits around Europe’. Christian Benteke, Wilfried Zaha, Scott Dann, Jason Puncheon and … It features the five boroughs at the heart of south London that converge at Crystal Palace – Bromley, Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark - on the back of the shirt. Crystal Palace have launched their eye-catching training wear ahead of the 2020/21 season, with recent signing Nathan Ferguson modelling the first items from the newly revealed PUMA designs. Now, Macron could have been forgiven for truncating them halfway up/down the shirt to make room for the squad numbers and player names, but to not even make an attempt is really poor form – and just a wee bit lazy.

Same crest as last week, this being the current mark worn by Palace players on the chest (outside of societal lockdown anyway).

Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish has penned the below article for the Sunday Times, republished in full below with their permission. What’s worse than having the tag in the neck peel off? We professed to not being enamoured with this design, much prefering the previous crest introduced in the 90’s.

Change ). No wonder, then, that the club has used a sash in some way, shape, or form for its alternate kits every single season since – a practice we expect will continue for a few more years still.

General Palace Discussion Our mantra is to focus on quality over quantity; as such, expect our contributors to bring in-depth looks at players, shirts, clubs, manufacturers, sponsors, designs, and all other elements that make up the modern footballshirt as we know it. The Premier League has released the below statement, republished here verbatim.

Called an ‘entertainment heavyweight’ by Palace chairman Steve Parish upon the signing of the contract, Mansion were a convenient part of the club’s strategy to rekindle its relationship with the Chinese market, which was originally struck by the signing of players Fan Zhiyi and Sun Jihai back in the 90’s.

Inside, a stickered tag is found reading out the sizing info (European XL, no sizes for other regions is given, which may have led to some guesswork across the world) besides the club crest and the now antiquated Macron logo (since replaced with a slightly better ‘javelin’, as the Italians describe it).

Even Steve Parish could barely avoid admitting that the away shirt was the better design between the two of them, mentioning during the launch that ‘I think the two shirts we’ve got this year, particularly the away shirt, are fantastic’. The 2016–17 season was Crystal Palace's fourth consecutive season in the Premier League and their 111th year in existence. Please bear with us as we grow and cultivate Club 25 from its humble inception into a hotbed for new and exclusive content for the beautiful hobby that is collecting footballshirts. Today (Friday October 16th), the Palace Club Shops (in-store at Selhurst, Croydon and Bromley and online) are stocking the classy Cup Casuals range at 30% off. Still, Macron’s tenure with the club coincided with some pretty decent football (a tenth placed finish in the Premier League and a FA Cup Final outing), so we expect the rosy memories to make up for what some of Macron’s designs lacked in charm. Macron, Italian purveyors of passable/mediocre sports gear, were signed with Palace from 2014/2015 (replacing Avec) through to the end of 2017/2018 and introduced two kits ‘inspired’ by the sash; a competent if, again, mediocre yellow effort in 2016/2017 and the shirt we are featuring today. Worse still is that these are stickered on in much the same way as the Mansion logo and the tag inside the collar, meaning that one trip too many to the laundromat will see them washed away.

Taking this risk was a bit of a callback – perhaps unintended – to the ways in which TFG Sports in ’99/’00 and Errea in ’07/’08 decided to reposition the red and blue on a white base.

The Crystal Palace theme month continues unabated at Club 25 Football as we turn to a rather recent fan favourite away shirt today – one that deftly combined the club’s home colours with a interesting take on the stereotypical sash that crops up at Selhurst Park from time to time. With a points total of 42, the Eagles remained somewhat comfortably ahead of Newcastle United, relegated in 18th place with 37.

Sure, they lost the trophy to Manchester United in extra time, but with the scalps of Southampton, Stoke, Spurs, and Watford dangling from their belt on the way to Wembley, it was a cup campaign to be very proud of. View basket for details. And when we say constantly, we mean it; since the turn of the millenium, Crystal Palace have had nine different brands supply their shirts and all but one of these firms introduced a sash at some point during their partnership with the club (the odd one out here is Admiral, who lasted just a single season and designed a yellow-blue away shirt). This meant that the brand was responsible for four home kits, four away kits, and a single third kit (’17/’18). 2015-2016 Shirt Size SMALL BNWT!

Crystal Palace FC has launched its new home kit for 2017-18. A lovely extra flourish that really goes a long way in making these colours stand out well. Ah yes, Macron, we meet again; a generally well-liked brand amongst kit collectors, we’ve personally never understood what the appeal of these guys is. The embroidery used here is slightly different compared to that seen on the Avec shirt, but it really doesn’t sway our opinion.

Hello… This is my favourite football shirt. Well…. It features the five boroughs at the heart of south London that converge at Crystal Palace – Bromley, Croydon, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark - on the back of the shirt. As said, Macron signed Palace to its stable of customer teams ahead of 2014/2015 and lost the South London side to Puma following the 2017/2018 season. Macron’s proprietary MPerformanceSystem gets an outing in the bottom corner of the front, opposite an ‘official team equipment’ jock tag; both are flanked by insets of stretchy fabric along the sides of the shirt, which mirror the function of their cousins on the sleeve cuffs; improved durability by virtue of stretching rather than tearing when being pulled. Make offer - Crystal Palace (The Eagles) Macron 2014/2015 Training Top Sweatshirt Longsleeve CRYSTAL PALACE football SHIRT 2015 Slim Player Shirt S/S EU 5XL (UK 4XL) - BNWT £16.00 Not that Macron needed to leave much space on the reverse of these shirts; no back of shirt sponsor was ever signed by the club, so instead you had the squad numbers awkwardly float in the middle of the shirt, with the names in their usual position on the upper back. Bring back the old bird, we say! You betcha, the club managed to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, putting further pressure on Jose Mourinho, and reached the FA Cup Final.

Not the most inspiring of launch adds, but we’ll take it; these away shirts were paired off with the rather mediocre home shirts of 2015/2016 (albeit both shared the odd bottom hem, where the stripes are cut off in favour of red on the home and white on the away), which may have played a small part in the popularity of the design. Bournemouth and Sunderland finished 16th and 17th, adding a further buffer between Palace and the relegation zone. It’s a shame Palace were drawn as the home team in the final versus United, because it meant the home shirt was worn.
