I fear my Whoosh may not have been that obvious, sorry . £75 is scandalous, c£55 seems to be the norm in the UK, which is now almost as much as Europe, Asia and US prices, but is still a scandal.
As for the term 'replica' you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference from a few paces, the changes are subtle but the design is basically the same. Originally the players specification shirts were never for sale, that made them special, and a sure sign that they were the real thing. Now anyone can buy a player specification shirt, get it badged and numbered, and the tout it around as a real players match shirt, a lot of people are getting ripped off.
Something to bear in mind though, if you give a kid the kit of his/her favourite team he/she will live in it. They wash up brilliantly, stay brightly coloured, and will probably outlast plenty of cheap an nasty items you might pick up in Primark etc. You could argue it’s the best value clothing you can put a kid in. As for adults, with their home team shirt, it could well be worn to every home game, and probably some away games, again, they wash brilliantly, and you won’t be using, or looking to buy, any other tops to wear to footie matches.
I know we are talking about an England shirt here, of course that is a bit different, and it is both unpopular and extremely overpriced, give it six months and you’ll probably be able to find it for half price or less in JD Sports etc.
My daughter ordered the grand kids shirts and shorts on a ‘dodgy’ website I think from China
£15 for the set and they look as good as originals, apparently all the parents at the school use the site..
took 3 weeks to arrive..
If anyone wants the link DM
I wouldn't buy it even if it was £5
