Ultimately it’s what an individual player can accomplish in tandem with the talent on the team that determines their level of success, but their kit (the uniform they wear) can also have an impact.
Dressing in a sharp, luxurious suit, is empowering; it also puts them in the right frame of mind to tackle whatever comes their way, and to make smart decisions.
But not every team has got it right. Over the years there have been some absolute shockers; Every team currently in the Premier League has a jersey they’d like to forget.
let’s take a look at the worst jerseys of some teams in premier league.
6. ARSENAL: AWAY SHIRT 1991-93
Bigger stripes in a kind of “z” like fashion; Although fashion’s a bad word to describe this shirt.
Quite a few teams around the world ave used these colors and style; God knows how the Arsenal fans managed to put up with it for two years, forced to watch their favourite players in such embarrassing jersey.
5. CHELSEA: AWAY SHIRT – 1994-96
The saying” people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones” applies universally to people judging fashion from the 1990s. Everybody made some bad choices back then, but this monstrosity of patterned panels should be judged among the worst. it’s three shades of grey with orange highlights. There is nothing good there.
4. EVERTON: AWAY SHIRT 2010-11
A touch of punk is acceptable, perhaps a darker shade of pink, but Everton’s away kit during the 2010-11 season was a tad overboard.
Luckily it was their away kit and we didn’t have to see the team at Goodison Park in that shirt.
3. CRYSTAL PALACE: GOALKEEPER JERSEY 1994-95
This Eagles kit is a good example of a bad shirt design. Coming from the 90’s, it was a LSD-esque jersey with yellow, orange, purple and black colours combined together. You need a magnifying glass to discern the colours.
2. HULL CITY: HOME SHIRT 1992-93
Hull city are known as the Tigers, so in this respect at least the shirt’s design had some relevance, but they definitely went overboard with the whole tiger theme. The 1992-93 home jersey looked like some form of fancy dress; it’s as if they actually skinned a tiger and printed the stripe patterns on the jersey.
1. LIVERPOOL: AWAY GOALKEEPER JERSEY 1995-97
We’ve seen some pretty awful goalkeeper jerseys, but this one has to be up there. Spnsored by Adidas and Carlsberg. Perhaps the kit designers had a bit too much of their sponsor’s product, because this jersey looked as if it was designed by a child. Yellow, orange, white and black, different patterns in different areas of the shirt.
