The Lost World of Football: Curious Kits Special!?!

Football fans of a certain age love nothing more than a weird, confusing or downright kaleidoscopic kit…
a weakness which is lovingly pandered to in the latest Got, Not Got: Lost World of Football books, stuffed with fab York Y-fronts, matchworn yellow Admiral Wales away with Rasta tramlines, sock tags and… we could go on.

How much would you pay for one of these 1976 Admiral Man U pyjama tracky jobs today? The book is considerably cheaper!

    Just finished reading one of Garys kit articles from ’91 (in WSC ‘Offside) when this post popped up! Can’t wait to get the new book, my copy of Got, Not Got is getting quite dog-eared already;)

  2. I used to have that Coventry 1970 green and black striped shirt as a lad – I loved it, and still do. Didn’t Plymouth Argyle play in that too? As for the all-brown, you have to admire its turd-tinted daring, though I can’t quite decide if it’s a thing of fecal beauty or a joke at the expense of some poor sod who showed up for training one day and got caught short with the stomach flu.
