A pleasant surprise.

It still winds up disproportionately that they call the colours red, white and green when 1) that is not the order of the sodding stripes 2) the colours as Stopsy has it are scarlet, green and white! Which is also in the right order!!

Sorry Stuart - I was just trying to point out that they've actually gone out of their way to get it wrong!

Scarlet? Why nor crimson, carmine, vermilion, fire engine or another form of, well, red?

And red white and green is the correct order if you're going upwards.


First World problems, eh?

Well because they're different shades and when they evoke "traditional colours" the traditional shade of red used is scarlet.

If you've ever come across anything that has its colours described from the bottom up let me know, I can't think of any time anyone would do that.

Its basic branding, and this confusion is what leads to the club getting the stripes in wrong order on little things like graphics and re-usable cups all the way up to the shipment of supporters shirts they couldn't sell because they'd got the stripes on the sleeves the wrong way round.

And I admitted it was a disproportionate annoyance in the first post!

Disproportionate plus completely OTT don't add up to proportionate, you know. This could be fun.

Red. red, red, red, red.

Oh, and red.

Now. A little dispropotionate challenge. If you can demonstrate to me conclusively that the red element of the hoops has always been "scarlet" - preferably quoting the relevant Pantone number - I shall consider whether scarlet isn't red in common parlance. And then continue to call it red.

By the way, and perhaps marginally more seriously, why not complain about the fact that the green is now a dark shade?

Interestingly although the green has changed shade many times over the years, the Scarlet has remained fairly consistent in shade throughout -

Well because they deliberately changed that. I'm not against things changing, I'm just annoyed when they sloppily get things wrong. I'm sure they used to be more consistent with these things in the amateur era.

I don't care too much when people call it red rather than scarlet, scarlet is a shade of red after all, its just easier to be consistent and better branding to use the specific shade as there is one! The the "Llanelli Reds", "Captain Red" or the "Red pimpernel" just don't sound as good!

Blimey, I have always called it Red, never Scarlet.

That's kind of my point. Branding is one thing, and what people actually say is another, and when what people say is "red" instead of "scarlet" for something that isn't the club's actual name, or saying "red, white and green", as per the very widely used and rhythmic "red, white and blue" of the flag, rather than "scarlet, green and white", getting wound up about it seems just a trifle pedantic.

there's a difference between the fans doing it and the club. And, once again, never claimed my view was rational or proportionate. Its just a bit weird when the fans are more consistent in their terminology than the actual "professionals" at the club.

I'm one of the 8% of people who are red green colour blind. Or is it scarlet green colour blind? Anyway it the order doesn't really matter to much to me.

Well Liverpool airport is rammed with scarlet, green & white. In fact you canít see any other colours in the square metre I am occupying. Hope the flight isnít too interesting although I landed in Japan just ahead of a typhoon a couple of weeks ago, that certainly got my attention
