Yesterday, Leeds United unveiled their newest kit. It’s the shirt in which Leeds fans are hoping to see their side return to European football with expectations high ahead of next season. But what is the general view of Leeds’ new home shirt?
It’s safe to say not everyone was impressed.
Has there been a more disliked Leeds home kit? Saw the @AVFCOfficial Kappa away kit yesterday and had pangs of jealousy.

Meanwhile, fans argued over how far the traditions of the shirts should be pushed. One person wanted more leeway whilst others criticised his view. They pointed out that the new kit at least ticks the box of being all white whereas his pitch didn’t even meet that basic requirement.
That is not a @LUFC shirt in a million years. Fans would go mental saying we play in all white!
Adidas can't win here.
I think the shirt looks decent now I've seen it on actual players and people

Despite the fact not everyone was that impressed by the new jersey, fans admitted they’d get it anyway.
Shit kit but will probably end up getting it anyway

The new shirt caused plenty of division. Older shirts where used by some to demonstrate the depths the club has sunk to in the past only for other supporters to hit back in defence of those kits.
I actually didn’t mind that kit

Others immediately turned their attention to what they hoped the away kit would be only for fellow supporters to warn them against high expectations. After all the away shirt could have similar problems.
Sadly it'll probably have the same weird collar lol. This looks dope tho

Speaking of the away kit, some fans demanded it now to make amends for the disappointment of the home shirt.
Announce the away kit to make up for this catastrophe

Others claimed that the new shirt made them feel ill.

One fan seemed to think adidas don’t put the appropriate effort into Leeds shirts claiming that other sides get a far better deal than the Yorkshire club.
Worst home kit in years. It was leaked weeks ago. Hopefully the away kit is out soon and that's better. Adidas don't seem to put any effort into Leeds kits. Look at how classy the Germany kit looked a true Euros and we get this. More effort needed.

My favourite response however simply has to be this comparison to cruise ship uniforms.
Old kit, the new one reminds me of uniforms worn by cruise ship staff. I think it’s the yellow epaulettes🤔
