Though I’m ashamed to admit it, coming from a scouse family it was the 1986 Liverpool home shirt. It’s a classic to be fair, simple but effective, with three Adidas stripes on the shoulder, a v-neck and crown paints as the sponsor. Retro is cool.
It has to be the the 2010/11 sponsor free ‘sash’ Saints kit. Simple yet brilliant design, and a symbol of Saints rebuild back to where we belong. Any shirt that doesn’t have a sponsor has a touch of class about it.
I’ve been incredibly lucky to witness many Le Tissier classics, but in terms of symbolism, timing, skill, passion and pleasure inducing it has to be Marian Pahars goal against Pompey at St. Mary’s in 2003. He turned their defence inside out and then curled one if from 25 yards before celebrating like a lad who had grown up in Eastleigh, not Riga in Latvia!
