Answer to the question

Came across the following explanation to why our recent shirts have had solid red backs....what a pile of crap!!

Supporters of teams who play in striped tops and are supplied by Adidas are wondering why the back of their new shirts are plain and several have asked if [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]this is a new EFL rule. In fact it is the result of a policy decision by Adidas whose spokesperson made this statement after the launch of the new Sheffield United kit had attracted negative comments on social media.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]"Our current design direction for the upcoming season sees us providing a plain reverse shirt treatment for Sheffield United, and our other partner clubs, who have stripes within their identity. In combination with more tailored and bespoke detailing throughout the kit we believe this will allow us to create more standout designs for our clubs in the UK and we're looking forward to seeing the shirts on pitch in 2018/19."
So you see the stripes are not "missing" but undergoing "plain reverse shirt treatment" as a result of "design direction," so that's all good.

Was interesting during the Grimsby game when Barnsie could not help himself telling us how Grimsby had stripes at the back with a white panel for their numbers.

I agree OBC - marketing speak at its utter worst. Taking people for fools . What they mean its cheaper to produce a plain back and therefore more profit for shareholders.

Speaking of which seen the price of the latest Man Utd shirt? Shocked 

An adult home jersey is for sale on the Adidas website for £64.95, where an equivalent shirt cost £55 four years ago according to the BBC Price of Football study. Had that increased at the rate of inflation it would cost £58.54 today.
And it's not just the shirt that will set fans back. Shorts cost £42.95 while socks cost £29.95m and if fans want an actual replica of the shirt worn by the players with 'climachill technology' then the price of the shirt rises to £109.95.
That means if you wanted the full adult kit, with the more expensive shirt, it will set you back £182.85 and that's without any players' names being printed on the back or the new shirt sleeve sponsor.

TBF most United fans living in the stockbroker belt around London can afford it
