When you have ‘concept’ kits popping up on social media, it means one of two things.
Either the club is doing incredibly well, so fans aren’t being bogged down by the thought of relegation and can afford to have some fun, or the person designing it just has nothing better to do.
The first part of that statement is undoubtedly true, given the Blues are currently on a ten-game unbeaten run in all competitions. As for the second one, I’m not going to be the one to judge the person behind the idea, and it has to be said, it does look beautiful, although what inspired them to release it on to the world, only they’ll know.
Birmingham City fan @LiamsGraphics released his potential design for the Blues’ shirt next season, taking inspiration from the ‘penguin’ style kit that the club has had at various points down the years.
And it seemed the fans on social media really liked the idea, even if it is just a concept rather than the official deal, with some only having rather minor complaints about it.
Looks amazing but ruined once you get a horrible Boyle sports logo across it

I love the Penguin but I feel the Nike logo doesn’t suit it. Diadora worked very well with it

The penguin has to have the BCFC (letters on top of each other) badge, doesn’t look as good with the ball & globe badge. 😉

Were you a fan of the 'penguin' kits?
Just a shame these kits never get put into production and we usually get left with some abomination.
