So the wait is almost over.

Umbro have announced their intention to reveal our new home shirt for this season tomorrow, and it’s already very clear that it will be a commemorative design to honour our final season at the Boleyn Ground.

After dozens of different mock-ups have done the rounds over the last few months, we’re now just hours away from learning it’s true identity and, if Umbro’s tweet above and the club’s official shirt is anything to go by, the design will be a throwback to the first shirt we ever wore at the Boleyn Ground in 1904.

This description of the home shirt can be found on the official site…

The hoop around the neck is interesting, but it’s the commemorative gold crest that is an interesting feature.

West Ham’s homeshirt in 1904 looked like this…

Which means our home shirt ‘could’ look a little like this…
