For sheer aesthetics - the white ones win every time - hands down.
But the darker ones are less distracting to the eye and easier to see through. I reckon if I was sat right behind the goal I'd prefer blue nets.@Bally
- fans forum idea: paint the back of the nets blue so that it is easier to see the game from those seats and paint the front of the nets white so that it looks better from the rest of the ground and for the cameras.
Everton Firsts: 1891 - The first football club to have nets in goals to prove the ball went in.
Everton Firsts: 2021 - The first football club to consider the effect of the colour of the nets on the fans experience and alter the colour of the nets to give optimum visual experience based on where in the ground you are viewing the game from.
