Beyond Awful Football shirts


Despite the fact that selling football shirts makes clubs a huge amount of money there are some truly hideous ones out there. The Guardian of all people set the ball rolling in 2013 with these photos and they highlight a curious kit sponsor entitled POOH Jeans

Some of these are beyond belief, and it can be envisaged that colour blindness or even total blindness can be the only mitigating factor in their selection. It equates with the Latvia entry for 2016 Eurovision winning, and you need to go and hear this. The Norwich kit is particularly curious as it is their third kit, the only saving grace, but when you consider in fact that all three kits are yellow and green, it makes you wonder what they will wear with a real kit clash.

A few examples of awfulness can further get us going

For this season The Mirror trawled through  a few dreadful kits being worn and posted their most awful selection, however it has to be said that the awfulness imposed on us for 2015-16 is in fact rather less than that back in 2013. With one exception, the kit worn by Japanese side V-Varen Nagasaki.

The one I feel is under rated in its awfulness is Swansea City away kit 2015-16

Swansea away

But we should not under rate other entrants into this fascinating competition.

But the winner of the most awful kit of all time must go to this one:

Woking 2 Wrexham 0


The nearer one gets to the end of the season the more certain matches matter. Woking are safe in the conference and in fact are the most successful part-time club in the UK. Wrexham are a full-time club striving to be back in the football league where they belong. The reality before this game was that their most likely channel would be the playoffs and after this game this is now a certainty. However it is worth just thinking how much football needs to be played by the better sides that are successful in the cup competitions and in fact Wrexham won at Wembley the FA  Trohpy a few weeks ago. They looked tired and most likely were tired having played 48 hours before. Woking were on top for most of the game and always looked the likelier team to score and they duly did twice in the second half in front of 1500 supporters. Jayden Stockley scored both goals and missed a simple chance for his hat-trick. He was the best player on the pitch. The other player to impress, mostly in the first-half was Dele Adebola, who is still a physical handful at this level.
