    Heh. I should have said I was looking for a normal, non-spandex, white cotton one. Like this:

    £50 🙁

    Yeah, they have the 2011/12 shirt for £30 – cheapest I can find in the size I’d need (large). M&M have them for £20, in every size BUT large. Typical. (Link, for those that might be interested.)

    Sorry for the slight hijack, but does anyone also know anywhere I can get a cheap Lions shirt?

    I met an old timer in New Zealand who made a good argument against replica shirts, basically if you haven’t been picked to play for your country you shouldn’t wear one. They should be sacrosanct. Fine to wear a training top or some other garment that shows your allegiance but not the shirt. I agree with him as well.

    This doesn’t help you support england or find a shirt, sorry.

    Can we extend that to team cycling tops as well please?

    That is an argument. Not sure I’d agree that it’s a good one.

    I’ll try to pop into town at the weekend. Thanks all.

    The current England shirt has two versions for sale, the cheaper one, £50, or the replica of what they play in. Tighter fitting cut to it and a very large area on the front to help grip the ball when carrying it/catching. That’s about £90 I believe but pretty rare in the shops. The cheaper does look like the actual one they wear but isn’t.

    Should keep the old timer happy!

    The tight fitting players shirts are the equivalent of wearing team sky kit on the road, no no no (especially if your belly stick out the bottom, and the ball carry area is only being used for holding your moobs in)

    The difference in wearing the supporters shirt is the motivation that a sea of white provides at Twickers.

    I only buy new shirts in World Cup years FWIW. My 2003 is still wrapped in plastic (unwashed, with celebratory beer stains ) upstairs. I’m convinced it’ll be worth a lot one day. 🙂

    I think you need to have a word with yourself….

    Do you? Some players get quite a bit of motivation from having 60000 supporters in-house wearing the team strip and cheering them on, others don’t.

    “Twickers”

    Oh dear.

    A sea of replica shirts going back 20 years are an intergral part of matches as is the noise and do provide motivation to my team anyway. Massive flags, drums, stupid costumes, mascots and other artifical rubbish to create an `atmosphere’ etc at other grounds I can’t stand, but each to their own.

    😆

    I’m not a fan of the following at rugby grounds;
    Booing
    Fireworks
    All that showbiz tosh such as the music after a try is scored

    However, I do love me a bit of singing, look you!

    And the bull-fight trumpet call followed by the Olé, which make sense in some parts of southern France but not at the world cup in NZ.

    A couple of years ago at Kingsholm they tried to introduce music after Glaws scored a try, converted penalty etc. Very odd hearing the crowd boo when Glaws had just run in a bonus point try 😆

    The atmos at Twickenham has been a bit iffy in recent years, but seems to be getting better.

    I used to share this view but my mind was changed when I went to the 2003 World Cup. The thousands of England fans taking over the stadium miles away from home was pretty awe inspiring – so I bought one for the final as it seemed the right thing to do.

    The Australians were so spooked that they were giving away free gold T Shirts to their supporters at the main station.
