    It might be a devious psychological trick.

    Hans Kirschstein painted his Fokker triplane with stripes that were a bit 'off-line', with the intention of making its track less 'visible' to attacking pilots. The idea was that it would make it look like he was going a bit to one side of his actual trajectory.

    [​IMG]

    He almost survived the war, dying in a flying accident in June 1918, in a different plane flown by another pilot. The plane went on to be flown by Ernst Udet, who survived WW1.

    So, let's see if these shirts work, eh....

    He would definitely be better up front, he was remarkably successful in his few months of aerial activity.

    If the paintwork on the plane was successful in confusing the pilots of attacking aircraft, would this suggest that players in the strip might have difficulty in making accurate passes to each other?

    So a friendly as opposed to a competitive cup competition means more then?

    You were extremely lucky to beat Leeds yesterday and with defences like yesterday it bodes for an interesting season.

    It could be an entertaining season if nothing else :)

    I’ll admit I know very little about football but I can’t help feeling that this may have strayed slightly off-topic.
