COVENTRY 1978-81 AWAY KIT

NORWICH CITY 1992-1994 HOME KIT

📝 Kit Review

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Norwich City

🗓 92/94

👕 Home

➡️ Frowned upon by fans due to its outrageous looks & abnormal design. It’s now seen as THE holy grail for Norwich fans because it’s so different to any other shirt. The design is sleek and the collar is👌

Verdict: Anyone got a sudden craving for a raspberry ripple?

Verdict: Any Brazil shirt is a banger. But this one might just top the bill. And the Les Bleus one wasn’t half bad either.


NEWCASTLE 1997-98 HOME KIT

#RandomKitOfTheDay

Newcastle Utd 97-99 home

This classic shirt has become a classic with Magpie fans and around the shirt scene wth the Newcastle Brown Ale sponsor, centralized manufacturer and club logos and round neck becoming iconic pic.twitter.com/TTTeYVdW9O

— Upper90CustomJerseys (@CustomUpper90) April 15, 2020

Verdict: How Toon fans would love to go back to the 90s. Just on the kits alone.  


READING 1991/92 AWAY KIT

Verdict: A shirt that actually provides a decent potted history of Reading’s recent fortunes.


LIVERPOOL 1989-91 KIT

Verdict: The Candy years really did hit the sweet spot kit-wise.


MAN UTD ‘GREY’ KIT

Verdict: So rarely spotted it’s probably worth millions on eBay.


OXFORD 1987/88 HOME KIT

#Oxford United wore this Umbro kit the last time they were in the top flight in 1987/88. They would stay with Umbro for one more season (in Div. 2) before switching to Scoreline in 1989.

Yes I can hear some of you having some schoolboy titters about the name of the sponsor 😉 pic.twitter.com/Rg91G1pYHZ

— Jon 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🇮🇹 (@chiefdougster) July 27, 2020

Verdict: Let’s be honest, we’re just including this for the now (defunct) sponsor name. Sorry.


CAMEROON 2002 WORLD CUP KIT

Verdict: An audacious early ‘00s effort that may still not be topped this millennium.


PLYMOUTH 1995/96 HOME KIT

Verdict: Far too much going on here. All the better for it.


WOLVES 2003/04 HOME KIT

Verdict: Kudos to the sponsors on striking this deal. It’s making us hungry.


ARSENAL 1991/92 AWAY KIT

Verdict: The Gunners have tried replicating this since, but this remains the gold standard. 


EVERTON 1997/98 HOME KIT

You can see what they’ve done here.

— 𝗣𝗮𝘂𝗹 𝗦𝗺𝗶𝘁𝗵 (@paulisbored) November 19, 2019

Verdict: Remember when you used to phone people in the late 90s? Phone them! 


WEST HAM UTD MID 90’S HOME KIT

Verdict: Julian Dicks! ‘Arry Redknapp! Local Sponsor! What a time to be alive.


LEEDS UTD 1993-95 HOME SHIRT
