But, lest we forget, there was a rosier time in United’s history. Remember when they dominated English football for two decades? Yea, wasn’t even that long ago.

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.

Made by Adidas with the glorious blue-and-white print, completed by the red Sharp sponsor and trim, they’ve never come close in terms of away kits.
