Chiang Mai United

A crest so good it convinced me to part with some hard earned cash and buy the jersey of a team from Thailand.

No randy goat crest would ever do that.

Also Chiang Mai is awesome. And Koln is average at best. You don't hear talk of backpackers going to Koln to see goats, you definitely hear of backpackers going to Chiang Mai to see elephants.

Thus the association is much greater, thus the crest is greater.

Elephant for the win!!!

She doesn't. Koln's crest has the record, not anything else.
If my aunt had a world record, she would still just be my aunt. It wouldnt make her a better aunt.

An elephant is a magnificent creature of war, and parading one about a football pitch would be beneath its dignity. Goats are a dime a dozen, often found in petting zoos, and produce cheese. Saying "look at my magnificent goat" is akin to pulling a beautiful woman with your Honda 50.

Baggly and Skylinehead doing some unreal canvassing with their profile pics/avatars. The Mackdaddy sees you and approves.

Skylinehead got my Juarez vote excluded in the semis so inclined to go Changmai to get revenge although I have a history of disagreeing with Bagglys choices.


Hmmm what to choose?

I respect your choice but it's hasty given you didn't ask skyline the same thing.

Changmai - voting for this and not just because i nominated it, i find it very unique and a beautiful crest, which has inspired people to use it as an avatar and even buy the jersey(the jersey is amazing too and i'm considering getting it myself) It has eliminated some of the greatest crests ever to get to the final, including Valencia and Roma, please vote for the big beautiful elephant

I am all aboard team goat. FC Koln

If I absolutely have to make an argument based on the actual crests and not actual livestock, pachyderms and water retention constructions as interesting as that i.

Both teams feature a three colour palette, Black, White, and Red. Koln have opted for a more striking and attention grabbing red than the more subdued crimson of Chiangmai.


Koln have a distinct shape and outline, that breaks the boundaries of typical Shield/Circle/Square shaped crest to establish a uniqueness similar to Inverness Caledonian, Bristol Rovers, and Bambi Football Club amongst others. Chiangmai have opted for the far too common emblem in the middle surrounded by a ring of text on the outside.


And for all of the reasons that Skylinehead mentioned in their Opening Statements.

Really surprised to see how this is progressing. Chiangmai is class, Koln is grand, ive voted for it a lot but really Chiangmai is brilliant, the jerseys are cracking too. For a new club and crest, they've nailed it. Chiangmai has tonnes of elephant sanctuarys aswell so it represents the city brilliantly.

Chiangmai crest is better
