Albion will be in their “unlucky” yellow shirts at Leeds tomorrow.

But the club’s Twitter account quickly pointed out they will also don their “lucky” blue socks.

Albion initially planned to retire the yellow tops after the recent midweek defeat at Manchester City.

News that they will be worn at Elland Road was met with dismay, some of which appeared to be light-hearted, by fans replying on social media today.

The club’s razor-sharp social media admin responded: “Well that went down as well as expected. Remember: 100% record in blue socks!"

Albion wore yellow in defeats last season at Everton, Arsenal, Manchester City and West Brom, where they missed two penalties.

The shirts also saw the light of day in a fine 0-0 draw at Chelsea.

They donned yellow this term in a show of solidarity with the people of Ukraine – and suffered defeats to Newcastle and Liverpool.


Albion were able to wear their home shirt when they won at Elland Road last season as it was predominantly blue.

The Seagulls were in a Nike shade of yellow called Volt when Bobby Zamora scored late to give them a win at Leeds in 2015-16.
