Western United Thread


#158

lame, they just went with Western United.

It sounds like a new Perth club.


#159

Athletic made a lot more sense. They’re talking about building the whole precinct and I’m sure they could engage other sports. Even if they didn’t Athletic, although still using European names for our ‘culture’ is new for the league and some point of difference. Western and United are both already used. It also takes away a logical use of United for the MSWS bid.

Would honestly prefer “cringey” names that are our own over just recycling names like Unite because Manchester United.


#160

Should just wear red and called themselves Melbourne United.


#161

I’m waiting for the day someone comes up with a club name including the word divided. Berlin Divided perhaps?

too soon?


#162

That’s pretty Cold there


#163

Sounds like Rudan is almost certainly going:


#164

Get in the fucking sea


#165

I didn’t know that western somewhere was the only place in Australia with roads and trees.


#166

Parking lines painted on the jersey please.


#167

Im really interested to see what type of logo they go with. Will it be a crest with a devil in it? Will it a tree with a road in the background?

Hopefully they go less generic


#168

They could just rip this off really:

#169

Dunno why they would want to copy the logo of some shit hockey team from New Jersey.


#170

Love the trees coming off the bitumen. Reminds me of what’s truly special in this world.


#171

Looks decent to be fair.


#172

I like it too.
And I really like green and black.
But “United” as a name is so tired it’s depressing.


#173

Yeah, it doesn’t make sense. In it’s true sense, clubs with United in the name were the product of merging other clubs in the same area together.

Wests United would be more befitting of Wests Tigers, because they merged Balmain and Western Suburbs together (albeit, not exactly the same area).


#174

Horrendous name. So generic and doesn’t really sound like a team from Victoria. You would think it’s a WA-based team instead.

On the topic of green and black, I think Sassuolo’s crest and kit are pretty snazzy

#176

Top boy Jim looking good :joy:


#177

Yeah the Sassuolo kit is the way to go.

I seem to remember a green and black second kit in the premier league recently that I really liked. I just can’t remember who it was.
