Is this Manchester United kit the worst the Premier League has seen?

Manchester United have had some iconic kits during a Premier League era in which they’ve largely dominated …

Some were screaming classics…

Like the simple, but beautiful, SHARP-sponsored strip Sir Alex Ferguson’s 1999 Treble-winning team donned


Or the Hipsters’ Choice Award-winning 1990-92 away shirt. Phwoar.


Or the sponsorless kit they wore in 2008 to commemorate the 50-year anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster in a Manchester derby at Old Trafford (which they lost, thanks to goals from Darius Vassell and Benjani).


Some have received a mixed reception…

Like this gingham number they wore in 2012-13.


But this one, according to a 2013 Manchester Evening News poll, is the worst one ever…


You guessed it. Manchester United’s third kit in the 1995-96 season wasn’t just a dour, grey assault on the eyes; but Ferguson once binned the kit at half-time when the side were 3-0 down at Southampton, complaining the players couldn’t see one another. He said: ‘The players couldn’t pick each other out.

They said it was difficult to see their team-mates at distance when they lifted their heads.’ Sure they did, Fergie. Here’s a reminder of the ‘invisible’ kit.
