Flashback Friday – Let’s celebrate Football Shirt Day
To celebrate football shirt day we have compiled our 10 best football shirts.
Football shirts have been a staple in British society with such classic kits like the 1990 England kit, 1990 Arsenal kit and the 1994 Manchester United Third kit. A lot has changed during the 25 years of the Premier League. We’re taking a trip down memory lane to remember some of the best kits to ever grace the Premier League.
West Ham 1999-2001
Claret and blue is a curiously popular traditional colour scheme for football clubs. While West Ham, Aston Villa and Burnley have all had plenty of stabs at it during their time in the Premier League, the Hammers’ turn of the millennium effort from Fila did it best.
A smart kit that gets its shades of blue and yellow spot on without too much else going on, it was a darn sight prettier than they football they used to play.
A classy effort from Spurs here, which combined a retro collar and retro sponsor in Holsten with a few modern whistles and bells to create their best home kit of the Premier League era.
This kit is only synonymous with one of Sunderlands best performances in the Premier League with a top 10 finish and top scorers in Darren Bent and Asamoah Gyan with the help of future England player and current Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.
Happier times for Fratton Park’s loyal fans, and their greatest kit, only enhanced by having a nice little heart on the front courtesy of Beanie Baby manufacturers Ty.
Probably one of the greatest football shirts ever. The Newcastle 1995-1997 Home Kit is iconic in many ways with it’s bold design and the large Newcastle Brown Ale sponsorship logo on the front. Needless to say if you say Newcastle United you think of this shirt.
Liverpool has always had some of the best kits especially throughout the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s but it was the 2013/2014 kit that stood out. The simple red with gold logo’s features throughout the kit but significance about this kit is that Luis Suarez did all he could to help Liverpool win a title and ultimately fell short.
Leeds United 2000-2002
One of the best shirts in this era but it was only made famous when Leeds stormed into the UEFA Cup with such legendary players like Harry Kewell and Mark Viduka
The half-and-half design can be a hard one to pull off. This Blackburn vintage keeps it nice and simple, with the dash of red at the top putting it over the top.
Alway a controversial one with the change of colour to the burgundy. Arsenal is to me has always been a red and white colourway but the change to burgundy looks slick and modern just like the 2005-2006 Arsenal team.
