What EPL team should be wearing as their away and third kits

Recommended Posts

I won't do all 20 in one go, but here is a visual run down of what history and my opinion suggests all 20 EPL teams should be wearing as away kits with the odd third kit thrown in where needed.

Arsenal

Yellow shirts and royal blue shirts as of the late 70s.

Aston Villa

All white a la the 1981 European Cup final

VILLA-82A-ECF.jpg

Third kit of light blue shirts with claret 'candy stripes' a la the 1957 FA Cup final

(Claret shorts and light blue socks that can be worn with each set also produced)

Birmingham City

red 'Penguin' shirt

May not be EPL at the moment but I'd love to see Newcastle get rid of the Mustard Away and bring back the Green from 05-06.

I've always liked Spurs' away kits from 1966-69.

Chelsea

All yellow

Everton

Salmon pink and navy stripes from the early 90s (possibly controversial choice, but plenty of teams will have yellow away kits, so this will protect the identity of the club, and is based on an early kit of the clubs.

That's happened a lot. Red is one of their traditional change-kit colors.

When I was a lot younger I had a Red & Black Man City shirt.

It was given to me as a present because my Aussie team are Red & Black.

And I'm old. So they must have had it for a very long time.

It didn't have sponsorship on it, but was bought from the club, so it pre-dates sponsors.

PS here's a link I found when I was trying to work out dates of when I had that shirt:

You want us wearing one of the least popular away kits in our history? Are you by any chance a Liverpool supporter?

Actually know, but its very distinctive! When I was at Uni I lived with an Everton fan, and he was always wearing that shirt! I appreciate its controversial, but I do actually like the colors!

Oh...That's news to me. I'd think they wouldn't wear red because it's United's color. Seems like some teams don't like to be associated with the colors of their rivals. A lot of Tottenham fans don't even like having a red sponsor logo on the shirt.

Red & Black are Lancashire colors. That's why a few of them use them in their clash kits

One of the hardest to choose for, they have changed away kits as often as anybody, but I liked last years blue stripes

Last two team from the Premier League

Wolverhampton Wanderers

All white

(I'd prefer old gold or black trim but couldn't find a picture of one like that)

Third- all black

Wigan Athletic

The Latics have much less tradition than most premier league teams, so I think this seasons orange kit would give them an individual identity.

I might add in a few more classic away kits from time to time if the mood strikes me.
