The most hipster West Ham away shirt known to man

West Ham had some banging shirts throughout the 1990s.

Few were as satisfying as their away shirt during the 1996-97 season.

The Pony-manufactured, ecru kit with the navy trim was nothing short of exceptional.

The team who played in it, however, were anything but. That season, although the club finished in 14th, they were just two points above the drop zone.

Sunderland, Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest were relegated, but Harry Redknapp’s side weren’t much better.

After a pretty dismal season, an end-of-season run kept West Ham up, as they lost just two games in the final 11.

The likes of Paul Kitson and John Hartson were brought in to save the club’s season, after Florin Răducioiu and Paulo Futre failed to deliver.

But there was promise that season, with a young Rio Ferdinand breaking into the first team.

It was far from West Ham’s greatest season, but it was one of their finest Premier League away kits.
