Or have them in red at least. The gold was a really nice touch and looked lovely in pictures and close up but from any distance away it was totally unreadable.
Found the red used by the youth sides just as difficult to read tbh.tmesis Some would even go as far as suggesting the radical idea of having a white square where the numbers go, that meakes them readable, without the whole back of the shirt needing to be a single colour.
Good point, that's better than looking like Leeds (although a blue panel is fine).
I'd rather they enforced a strict easily differentiable haircut policy than did anything with the numbers.... they're unreadable most the time no matter what.
It wasn't an unsolveable problem 50 years ago, so I just don't see how it's become one now.
