Josh, Chris & Michael from the Quickly Kevin podcast did a special recording for our Your First Football Shirt campaign about their favourite football shirt with some pretty bold choices. Denmark x Hummel, Arsenal’s bruised banana and 1990’s United shirts.
Josh Widdicombe – Denmark
I love that Denmark one from the Eighties, the Hummel one, it’s absolutely beautiful. I haven’t done it as a drunk-eBay purchase because it’s £200, I’ve checked. I don’t know how I’d smuggle it into the house.
Michael Marden – Manchester United
I’ve got two, if that’s allowed. Number one is the Manchester United away, the sort of herringbone ’90-’92 era, the long-sleeve version of that one is a work of art. My other one is the West Germany 1990 international kit. Two hall-of-famers for me.
Chris Scull – Arsenal
Weirdly, I think it was the 1992 England red away. I think we might have worn it for Euro 92, that was the best England kit I think we’ve ever had. Really deep red with the blue collar. My other one, I liked the Arsenal ’92 yellow-and-black away kit. People hate that, I love it! I saw Dennis Pennis [played by Paul Kay] once at Highbury wearing it, and that really cemented in my opinion that it was one of the greatest shirts of all time.
