Something I've talked about in my blog and has also been discussed at length on TrueColoursFootballKits.com is the issue that Tottenham Hotspur don't really have a suitable kit to avoid a clash with their hosts, West Bromwich Albion, at The Hawthorns, on 2nd February 2013.
Various solutions have been discussed, including West Brom changing to navy shorts and socks, Spurs wearing their full navy Away kit with West Brom wearing white baselayers, Spurs wearing one of their goalkeeper kits outfield and, finally, Spurs releasing a yellow Fourth kit for that game.
It wouldn't be the first time it has happened so I'd like to see what DF members could come up with. Spurs have a great tradition of wearing yellow Away kits, which you can find on HistoricalKits.co.uk.
Looking for designs of yellow kits, including shirt, shorts and socks and, if you see fit, baselayers - perhaps with elements interchangeable with the other kits. The manufacturer should be Under Armour and the sponsor Aurasma.
As is standard with DF competitions, selected entries will be featured on the DF facebook page and tweeted and designs already uploaded to Football Shirt Culture's Fantasy Kit Designs or the DF galleries are both eligible and welcome so please don't hesitate to include them.
The competition will close at 23:59 on Saturday 5th January 2013 and the winner(s) - chosen by me - will be announced shortly afterwards.
Update - 8/1/13: The competition is now closed and I have chosen my winner.
This competition, despite being relatively short, has been one of the most difficult to judge from those I've opened. The standard of entries was extremely high and one of six or seven designs could quite easily have won.
It was fascinating to see how different designers approached the challenge. To make things easier, I ruled out entries which contained a significant amount of black/navy. As the purpose was to avoid a clash with West Brom, the light/dark approach could have caused problems so, despite there being some great efforts in that style, I looked elsewhere.
Several people looked to specific kits from the past, and denishurley, Steevo and Fenton brought the memories flooding back. Another tack, which we've seen on fantasy Dortmund kits recently, was to use different yellows together as giannakakis - incorporating a gradient - arius85, DJoletino and matte1897 - with an existing Under Armour/Spurs template nicely adapted - demonstrated expertly.
The most Under Armour-like entirely original design was surely that of Taggo. If Spurs do release a Fourth kit for the West Brom game - fingers crossed - then it wouldn't be too much of a surprise if it ended up looking quite similar to Taggo's entry.
In the end the competition was so hard to judge that I decided to simply choose the shirt that I'd be most likely to buy and wear. Whilst so many designs would look great on the pitch, erikwinterburn's classic take on a Spurs yellow kit - particularly the shirt - was one that had that timeless quality without being boring.
So congratulations to erikwinterburn, as the winner of the competition, but also to all those who took to the time to buy into the concept. Well done.
