This collection craze was sparked off by the promising class of 2007/2008 squad, as long as watching United games with my buddies at ManUtdSG (hey folks!). 99 jersey: Special jersey just for Champions’ League games. No sponsor nor jersey manufacturer logos. Sharp, which is a very fitting word to have as a sponsor. In time for the new season, many other clubs have followed suit including Arsenal, Glasgow Celtic and Inter Milan. Inter Milan 09-10 away jersey. A little trivial: I wore this jersey – complete with a custom-made black armband – to stand with our lads in remembrance of the Busby babes. To mark the occasion, United wore a replica kit similar to one the Busby Babes wore (a 1950’s design). The new kit brought United good luck as both Eric Cantona and the Premiership title came to Old Trafford. Have to give it to the Liverpudlians for winning the Division 1 title and European Cup though, it’s considered quite a magnificent achievement.
I’ve loved since 1992 (yes, the season before Cantona joined the Red Devil revolution and catalyzed the winning of the first-ever Fremier League championship). Eric Cantona retired at the end of the ’96/’97 season and one of his signed Number 7 shirts later reached over £14,000 at auction. I’m backing the Arse to put one over perceivingly-great overachieving Poo. Not too sure if the crest above is the Manchester United crest, manchester united new jersey as compared to the one below. Previous crest with the “Football Club” still visible. The blue shorts had the club crest on the centre of the waist as well as a tiger skin pattern. That we’re not longer a football club. Still, it’s amazing we managed to wrest the FA Cup from the (then) giants of English football. In our continual quest for football dominance (and pursuit of the Treble II in honour of the Busby babe’s 50th anniversary), spotlight now shines on the FA Cup.
The famous nickname The Red Devils was introduced by Sir Matt Busby. However, just like the red kit, the AIG sponsorship logo dominates the shirt. Umbro’s design for the 1996-97 season saw a two tone darker red with a button up collar. Must say that I’m really touched by the gestures of respect accorded between the players from two supposedly fierce northern rivals. United jerseys worn by blessed players who had graced Old Trafford throughout the generations. Which means our boys just have to play it tight, with cool heads and get a very decent result – as we are playing at Old Trafford in the first leg before heading to the Italian capital. Or should I say, the mafia capital (referring to the thugs in the Roma’s stands, not the city itself). Manchester United reached their first ever FA Cup Final in 1909 against Bristol City. You have a replica of the ’68 European Cup Final jersey.
An on-and-off away jersey colour for United. The kit is produced with a double knit structure and a dynamic fit to give it a sleeker appearance whilst offering 10% more stretch than the previous jersey. They lost the game 3-1. Ironically, 93 years later, United ditched their ill-fated grey kit at half time (for other well-documented reasons). Umbro, aware of public disatisfaction but happy to be given the chance to gain more sales nonetheless, released the replacement to the grey away kit at a reduced price. The color of the away kit is black. Worn with white shorts and black socks (white in Europe). In fact it wasn’t until 1928 that Man United switched permanently to the red, white and black colours they have become so famous for. Worn with black shorts and white or black socks. An adaptation of the Admiral black and white away kit from the previous seasons.
The 1986-87 third choice all blue kit was only worn at Southamnpton. First, the ’68 jersey is in blue! This is a replica of the jersey United lads wore against Bolton. The Away jersey View gallery Manchester United’s David de Gea The speculation suggesting Manchester then is he guaranteed the No. 1 jersey? Sales were also down on previous years with United’s lack of success on the field and David Beckham moving to Real Madrid, who as a result overtook United in shirt sales. And of course, the one and only Ryan Giggs’ breathtaking solo goal – scored while we were 10 men down against Arsenal’s 11, that gave us the semi-final win en route to our historical Treble. The bottles are cleaned, disinfected, reduced to tiny flakes and melted down into yarn and spun for fabrication. Roma hurdle first. Feet on the ground, just like I hope our lads’ are. Still, it looks like gonna be a Barcelona – United semi-final match-up.
