We've had that image of Andy on our banner since the start 6 years ago but as one user on Facebook suggested, is it time for an update?

In one respect, it's part of our identity but then again, maybe it makes us look outdated as a website. This is the dilemma.

Yeah I think it looks amateur but you've always known I think that. Smile

When I brought this up a few months ago, you said it had always been that way and you didn't want to change it.  If you've changed your mind, what would you have instead?  Smile

I suppose it got to the point where after enough people bring it up, you realise it's something really worth thinking about.

I think based on the colour scheme of the banner and website, we'd need to go for another Andy with white clothing... so probably Wimbledon this year.

IMO you should have three, each reflecting the time of the tennis season (i.e photo of Andy on clay, hard and grass). C'mon Mark, mix it up a bit.

So, you'd prefer to have the same colour scheme?  I can see the merit in that - recognisable.  But, if, at the end of the day, you decide to change it, my vote would be for a clean shaven Andy Murray Smile

It might not be that simple as I want it to suit the colour scheme as much as possible. Will have to experiment.

You can tell a guy made this website, the green is pretty horrific and does not relate to Andy what so ever. It should be blues or navy. :P

The green is nice, subconsciously positive, makes us stand out from the crowd and it's Wimbledony.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

I've been thinking the site is ready for a refresh for some time. It could look a bit more dynamic, use more images, a fresh colour scheme, maybe some video on the home page. You up for all that, Mark?
