Ahhhhh
Fantastic. The one with the round badge is even better imo
The very one but I disagree about the badge. An absolutely superb shirt. Also the claret and blue version which I loved too and I still refer to as a “Lionel Martin” shirt

Agree with you Al, beautiful badge

I've still got my original of this somewhere, I think I have the home one as well. And definitely have the yellow away. I doubt many of my old shirts fit these days though as i'm a tad bigger than the medium/large I used to wear.



I'm lucky that I use to wear things baggy in the 90s. Can just about squeeze into mine now.

If memory serves me right we first wore this under Tommy Doc in a pre-season friendly in 1969 against an Italy under 21 side.
The team came out in yellow and blue and were roundly booed ....until everyone realised  it was US in such a flamboyant kit. Anybody else remember this?

I do. I remember Dick Edwards looking up at us booing and realising the mistake.

I see you can't get any XL sold out of them already.

I’m sorry but it’s time for the now traditional rant about that yellow and blue Brazil style kit. It was an absolute fucking abomination. It was a cheap crap Ellis cash in when we’d just got through to our first FA Cup Qtr final in over a decade and we had to wear that hideous piece of shit in the game at Anfield. What should have been remembered as a valiant if somewhat fruitless attempt to break our Qtr final
Hoodoo is now remembered for that absolute travesty of a kit. If it was up to me I’d buy them all, put them in a pile in the Holte End car park, douse them in petrol and burn them to a crisp, every single last fucking one of them. A shoddy, cheap, classless, tacky pile of crap that is a stain on the history of the club. The only good thing about it is the club only wore it I think 3 times in competitive fixtures and it was quickly shelved along with other shit early 90s marketing ideas like Gary Penrice. Fucking hell I hated it, absolute bollocks.

I liked it, but I'm hugely impressed by this rant and I'm now fully behind the cause.

I bought my lad the Umbro Mita lace up collar jobby from JD Sports as he's always borrowing my Nike Acorns one. As soon as I see that shirt I see Saunders, Houghton, Atkinson, Townsend in it.

I've got it and an original, perfect replica

Are there any differences you can see between the original and the rerelease?

£56 is a decent price in this market. I bought that yellow third for £9 on eBay in 2010. The retro kit game has gone crazy since.

If anyone this shirt in a M/L in good knick and wants rid then let me know!
