Is this Manchester United shirt the best in Premier League history?

Manchester United fans are constantly banging on about their long and trophy-soaked history.

They’ve won it all multiple times at club levels and have had some of the world’s best ever players in their ranks.

So it was no surprise that, back in 1992, United made the call to design a shirt that nodded to the club’s roots.


Before the club became known as Manchester United, they were formed as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878.

Newton Heath played in green and gold, brought into modern football in scarves worn by fans protesting against the Glazers’ ownership of the club.

The club would stay as Newton Heath until 1902, when they reformed as Manchester United FC.

In 1992, United referenced their heritage with the green and gold kit, and it was an absolute delight.

At the time, it was thought of as a bit of an eyesore. But time is the great healer, and looking at it now, it’s a mystery to us as to how anyone didn’t love it.

The shirt was worn by some truly wonderful players, like the one and only Eric Cantona.
