Manchester United have always been one of the beacons of English football. Well, for the 20 odd years prior to now anyway.
The Red Devils have been lauded for the number of great teams, not just individuals, but the collection of top players who have been fielded all at once.
As much as neutrals probably hated their dominance of domestic football, and are enjoying the pitfalls currently, there’s few would deny their superiority of much of the last decade.
So many great players have worn the famous red shirt over the years. The Busby Babes. The Class of ’92. Cristiano Ronaldo.
But has it really always been such a great shirt?
The answer is no.
Though they’re a mega global brand, the Manchester giants haven’t always got it quite right when it comes to designing their shirt.
Perhaps it’s never got so bad as to reach the levels of the infamous grey kit worn in the loss to Southampton all those years ago, but there’s certainly a few that comes close.
