Then you can go back to where you buy your shirt and put the sleeve logo on for free.
Without a sleeve sponsor, we can put BPL Champions Patch, the Champion's League 6 patch and the World Champions Patch all in the same jersey. For the Champions League, if you win it, you can put a patch with the year your team won it. So that is the 2019 patch. However, if your team wins it 5 times at least, you get to wear the special patch with the Champions League trophy and the number of times your team has won it. Basically our patch with a number 6 in it.
But doesn't mean we will get a patchy season ah...
I think we will do fine this season. Every team will be subjected to the 3 substitution rule in a shortened EPL this year. Our quality in squad depth will show in the 2nd half of the season.
Interesting information on the badges and new jersey, thanks!
I am not a jersey collector but the badges and new jersy have piqued my interest. Do you know roughly how much it would cost for a new jersey together with all the badges for both 18/19 and 19/20 seasons?
As for our team and how we should now do with VVD out for the rest of the season. I generally agree we should be ok but would be good to have Alisson back soon and both Matip and Gomez remaining fit. CL should be even better since we are allowed 5 substitutions.
