If so - why would anyone buy the full kit? (Other than due to a sexual peccadillo)
That's kind of like asking why Toys-r-Us sold Ghostbuster costumes.
should have made an exception for kids.
stop being purpusely thick
as a sort-of emulation/dressing-up thing. but for a grown-up - a bit weird? I guess if you play 5-a-side/pub football then you need a full kit of some description but surely you'd look a bit of a prat in full replica kit?
When, as a kid, you were wearing your team's full replica kit; did you also incorporate shin-pads?
b) They are buying for a child (hopefully for non-sexual reasons).
c) They aren't all quite 'there'.
that's probably why they sell them.
'remember getting your first ever football kit?'
arsenal 1990/91 away kit. epic birthday. wore it at my birthday party. the whole kit of course.
Spurs home shirt, wanted one with Holsten on it so my had to get an adult size, it was far too large.
With matching shirt birthday cake.
The grey one (http://www.offthepost.info/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/england-away-1996.jpg) and the one that looked like a kids' TV show (http://www.offthepost.info/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/england-goalkeeper-1996.jpg)
Unfairly maligned designs, imo.
Almost like the kind of stuff you might get a fancy dress costume made out of, but with an inner lining a bit like the kind you get in swimming trunks.
It was incredibly itchy, which was annoying because I was usually the goalie in the playground and had to wear it a lot.
Think I was 6. Got an adult one for my birthday just gone an' all.
There's another sub-thread, actually. Did people used to get their own surname, a player, or are you one of those who decides to pledge their allegiance with something like "geordie" above a number 4, and "life" under it?
This was because the guy doing the printing talked me out of getting Greening, 34 which I had initially requested.
I was an idiot of a kid.
I was considering getting a shirt this weekend for when I go to matches, but my girlfriend talked me out of it. I probably would have committed the heinous crime of getting Dalgish 7 on the back of a new shirt.
first football shirt was a Liverpool one I was given when I was about 8 and hadn't settled on an allegiance at the time. (It was the old Crown Paints shirt). Actually, thinking about it, that's the only football shirt I've ever owned. (I did have an AFC Bournemouth tracksuit though, for shame)
Amazing kit. AMAZING
my dad, a celtic fan, went bonkers. it was exchanged for a scotland strip.
I must admit that I recently bought some NUFC shorts and socks to go with my bilion shirts. It was a "megasale" where they were flogging all of the old adidas stuff for stupdly low prices (i.e. 50p) and I needed some new stuff for kickabouts etc.
Obviously don't wear them all together when I'm playing, but I did spend the day I bought them showing off to my girlfriend in the full kit. And I felt fucking great. Cheers
I went up Mt Snowdon a few weeks ago and was greeted at the top, absolutely knackered by some fat prick who'd got the train up in a City shirt with the Champions League badges sewn on. It nearly made me throw up in my mouth.
(The same applies to Utd fans who have the gold Premier League badges sewn on as we're champions)
