Your favorite football strip.

With clubs changing their home strip every season now as opposed to every 2 seasons like it used to be, our respective clubs have had many-a-strip over the years, but which one is your favorite? I can't really decide over these 2 really, both really simple and in my opinion the 2 best stripes Arsenal have had, our 2004/05 & 2005/06 kits just missed out, they're nice as well but not as good as these.

I actually bought this whole adult sized strip from eBay a couple of years ago for just £6!

Christ Ryan, you've got some goppin' taste in shirts :P. That Henry-modelled one is cheap and nasty and looks like something you would buy from a knock-off footy-shirt stall in Bangkok. The Cesc-modelled one isn't too bad though.

 

Arsenal have always had horrible kits it must be said, save for the maroony-red grape centennial effort from our last season at Highbury, and this season's red & blue sleeved one.

 

I'll post some images when I'm at work :P but my favourite kits are:

 

Real Madrid 1996/97 (I think), the Kelme made white one with purple paw-prints down the sleeve.

 

The Borussia Dortmund one from 1997/98 (I think, when they won the CL), that was very very bright yellow with black sleeves and a big "C" on the belly for a sponsor. Every bit as disgusting-looking a kit as anything I've ever seen, but to me it's an iconic kit, and that means a lot.

 

The 2001/02 (I think) Roma third kit, skin-tight, dark blue with orange details.

 

2010/11 Wales home kit. Just beautiful!

 

Cheers!

I always thought the paw print strip was lame, but I agree with you on the Dortmund CL one. It stood out in a good way.

Yeah i know exactly what you mean it does look like Arsenal bought a joblot from eBay, but just looking at it brings back the memories of the invincibles, and that kit Fab is wearing is just sex, football sex.

 

And i do apologise to everyone for this, especially Boyo.. but, when i was younger, i had this.. for no other reason other than i loved it, i loved it so much i didn't care about the badge, I'm sorry.. I'll leave. (And because I'm a massive Schmeichel fan, and i was just as awesome as he was between the sticks, so i deserved it)

Ryan's going to go mental, but I think Spurs had a fantastic art-deco home kit a couple of seasons ago, the one with the dark blue triangle-ly stripey block across the top of the chest.

 

In the mid-90's, Man Utd had some nice kits too: the home kit with all the legends names embroidered in the background; the green & yellow heritage strip, and even the black & gold "Viewcam" strip.

 

Edit: omg. Mind = blown. :lol

 

Cheers!

Ah my dads a Yid, i actually quite like Spurs, apart from when we play them. I actually love their away kit for this season, classy. Yeah United had some nice strips back in the day, i quite liked this one. (Infact i think i had the full goalkeeper strip of this one?)

I've always been a big fan of the Dutch national kit just because of the whole, "Yes, we're wearing very, very bright orange and we'll still drop kick you in the heart" vibe of wearing a colour that ridiculous and unique with that much pride. I like the history of it too; it's the colour of rebel flag in the wars with Spanish Imperialists, it's the flag of the Empire, still represented in the flags of the boroughs of New York City and the counties of Long Island, it's the flag of the Royal Family, it's the armband of anti-Nazi resistance. I think there's a lot to be said for having a kit where, if you lined up every country in the world, from a distance, you'd recognise the Dutch one first, and they manage to do it in a way that's shameless and timeless and serious and not particularly tacky.

I don't think there's any other one country that so co-opted a specific colour as their own, and I think that's a really awesome thing. Everyone plays in white, everyone plays in blue, everyone plays in red, the Dutch play in orange. It's an instant association that also allows for awesome adverts like this one, the greatest football promo of all time;
