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.
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.
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?
