What is your favourite football kit from the team you support? & what football kit would you flat out refuse to buy because it is breathtakingly hideous? So, Leeds United:

Best Home: 2000-2003 Kit. Simple. Classy. White.
Image

Best Away: 03/04 Kit. Really liked this. The recent Macron away shirts have been very good too.
Image

Worst Home: 06/07 Kit. Doesn't look spectacular, but my main gripe was that is was very crappy material.
Image

Worst Away: 91/92 Kit. Hideous.

Remember those 2003/04 kits, very very nice actually. Especially the away one!

Best home was 2010/11

Image

Red with white sleeves. Very understated, very classy.
Best Away was 2003/04.

Image

Yellow and Blue, doesnt try to be anything else. Great material on this one IIRC.

Worst home was 2008/09
Image

Sleeves must always be completely white, we're not LFC/MUFC. And white must never ever be anywhere but on the sleeves. Complete **** up on both counts.
Worst away by far was 2008/09
Image

Since whe do Arsenal play in entirely white shirts?

Yes, that dark blue away was very smart. Noticed that the two best ones were made by Nike & the two worst ones were made by Admiral. I really like Nike kits, think they're the best about. They make these understated simple kits that just work well. What I hate most about that Arsenal away is those hooped socks :puke: Although I did like that Burgundy away in 05/06? I think, wasn't it the last year you played in Highbury? But yeah, that was a very classy design.

Yeah I considered that one, especially since its synonymous with highbury but Burgundy isn't Arsenal colour. I do remember watching Arsenal that season and feeling that something just wasnt right with the colours! It was a lovely touch though and was very subtle.

In general understated and subtle kits are the best by far, problem is that every club has its own colours and so an understated kit has to be changed for the manufactures to make money!

My cousin is Leeds fan(bizarrely since he'd Dutch...) , although I havent seen him in donkeys, so I remember most of the Leeds kits from the early 00s.

What about these ones? Quite nice.

Yeah, the Nike Strongbow were the best kits I think. Although I think Macron are doing a good job on their current kits. I love the Leeds home kit this year (in my avatar), I also bought this a few months ago:

Another simple Leeds Kit. Yellow & blue band across looks mint. I'm actually going to buy this jacket from 1972 as well soon. I do like my retro stuff.

That tracksuit looks sick tbf

Think almost everyone prefers simple, old fashioned kits rather than some of the modern shockers!

Oh dear, I remember that pink kit. Well, it was certainly different. I'm sure I read somewhere that Everton will have Puma kits from next season?

No it's Umbro apparently. I like Umbro, and Nike were the ones behind the badge change so they can get to ****

I meant Umbro, I've just been looking at some Puma football boots Yeah, I think Umbro are quite decent, I really like this England kit:

I know it wasn't too popular, but I thought it looked quite unique & modern.

Probably the only England kit I've liked

Always thought England looked better in red than white, probably because of 1966.

Very nice. Everton have generally had very smart kits over the years though. Your latest one is perfect in its simplicity imo but obviously the badge has been controversial

If you're talking about retro kits though, Holland 1974 takes the gold

Something very special about it. Timeless class and elegance. Johan Cruyff looking bored out of his skull in a world cup final

Obviously technology moves on and the material used now is much more sleek and better fitting, but I do miss the baggier kits that used to billow a bit like a sail when the likes of Baggio ran at full speed.

Best Liverpool home kit has got to be the 1998-00 one for me - as made iconic by a young Michael Owen. Worst home will probably be the one following that which we won the treble in.

Best away would be the 1989 grey one, or the 2009 grey one, with the worst being either of this season's.
