Josh Widdicombe – Denmark

Denmark, hummel, 1986

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

Ryan Giggs in 1991 Manchester United away shirt

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.
