New, comments

We have been told about the new kits yet to be revealed for the 2015/16 season, and were sworn to secrecy. Oops.

DISCLAIMER - THESE ARE UNCONFIRMED REPORTS FROM AN UNVERIFIED SOURCE

We had an email last week from a source who has let us know a few details regarding the as-yet concealed away and commemorative kit for the 2015/16 season.

The third kit as we already know will be blue and hooped, with the names of the 33 victims of the Burnden disaster of 1946 embossed onto the shirt, a lovely and appropriate touch to remember the lives lost some 70 years ago.

However, we can tentatively reveal now that the club crest will be adapted, with a further tribute to the football fans who didn't come home on that day in 1946.

Moving onto the away kit, we have been told that it will be...black and gold.

Macron's policy of giving each team their own identity with their strip means that speculating about the kit's design would prove nigh on impossible.

Wanderers, of course, last had a black away kit in the fateful 2011/12 season - and debuted the strip in a 4-0 demolition of Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on the first day of the season. All seemed rosy in Owen Coyle's Wanderers garden.

However, as we all know, this was the year in which our glorious stay in the Premier League ended. Let's hope that we don't suffer a repeat this time around.

I'm personally a believer that the Bolton Wanderers away kit should be a red shirt, with blue shorts and red socks. I'm not including that God-awful infrared number that was donned in 2013/14, I'm thinking more 2003/04 or the 1988 Normid classic away kit. What do you think?

Should Bolton stick to tradition, or are you looking forward to what Macron has to offer?
