    Still not a fan of the lack of change shorts these days. West Brom could have worn them – the trim colour is the same after all – as could Sunderland. The worst one though IMO is this past week; Man City v Burnley. OK, Burnley had dark shirts against City’s light, but white shorts against light blue, light blue socks against white, the light blue trim on the sleeves…I accept it may just be me being picky, but I didn’t think it was ideal.

    Hi I was wondering who does the graphics for the kits they look amazing?

    So it seems that the Liverpool ‘toxic’ (official name, not opinion!) strip joins the long line of ‘cursed’ strips – the draw at Old Trafford yesterday one of the few times it’s been worn to anything other than a loss. Still don’t know why NB are resisting the red home / white away / yellow third that makes sense AND would be a hit with the clubs supporters. This is set to continue next season apparently, as one of the strips will be dark grey, according to leaks.

    Whilst this isn’t from the Premier League…. Sheffield United’s goalkeeper clearly forgot the rules on goalkeepers’ kit changed a good 109 years ago.

    How did the referee let this go by?

    ^
    And the decision to let Walsall wear an identical GK strip to that of Sheffield didn’t help either! I’m surprised the referee didn’t wear yellow to complete the set!

    New Juventus crest : Oh dear. Like, redesign the crest and the best they can do is a black ‘J’ ??? Poor, very poor.

    Recalling when Opel-sponsored clubs met in Europe https://museumofjerseys.com/2017/01/17/how-bayern-munich-paris-st-german-ac-milan-and-sparta-prague-dealt-with-having-opel-as-sponsors-when-they-met-in-europe/

    Interesting, Denis, thanks. I often wondered why those particular kit anomalies occurred; now I know. Didn’t even realise a ‘same sponsor’ rule existed. I have seen occasional pictures of the Bayern 97/99 kit with Zafira on instead of Opel. Am I also right in thinking that sponsors were banned in the Cup Winners Cup final before 95?

  9. Denis Hurley Says:

    I think 95 was the first time they were allowed in Champions League final – they were allowed in ECWC and YEFA Cup finals from 96 on.

    In the first season of the Champions League, 92-93, sponsors weren’t allowed in the group stage!
