I've just got another four (including a sweet one from 92/3), but this is about as trainspottery as you can get for a relatively recent Leeds shirt:-



So, you're thinking, what's the big deal, Grind?

A clue: the shirt was worn by Brian Deane in a preseason game with Benfica.

Still got glazed eyes?

Well, it's a 94/95 shirt with 95/96 PL patches (for the new season) and it also has the black Asics logo on the numbers.

Totes unique for the style - and only impressive if you're a shirt wonk, obviously.

Leeds should never have worn Green, it's just wrong.

The first team wore (at least) four distinct versions of the green/blue shirt.

In addition to the one above, we wore a weird "trial" version in a game at the end of the 1993/4 season, the "regular" 1994/5 league shirt and a modified UEFA cup version.

I have all four.

Anyway, I quite like it (the yellow/blue version is definitely one of my faves), but it is certainly "of its time" as a few other "Asics" teams wore very similar styles.

I know Stoke City had one that was practically the same.

Wonk, wonkety, wonk.

This is one of a batch I'm after.

Quite rare and never available as a replica - unfortunately it's not a first team example (no #16 back then), but still a neat shirt to add to my somewhat pointless collection.

Here's another more modern unreleased shirt in the same batch.

I'm attempting to look into the specific history of a couple of my Hunter shirts (one from 72/73 and one from 73/74) and have been alerted to the fact that the club wasn't averse to sending out teams wearing shirts from different seasons.

Here's a humdinger from a game against Birmingham City:-

I can't claim any credit for finding it - my main man Dave spotted it - here is a later pic which shows three different shirts simultaneously being worn in the same game.



Tight Yorkshire fecks!

Not the easiest to spot - smiley, "inverse" smiley and nothing at all.

I became interested in this again after watching the Palace game on Monday - for those who didn't see it, Scott Dann got a bloodied nose and had to change his shirt and I was a bit surprised there was no match ready spare available for him. To my eye, it looked like he simply put on a blank (possibly even fished out from the club shop?).

I think our boys get a couple of shirts per game and, at least in the immediately prior seasons, it wasn't uncommon for these to "disappear" and not be used again (sold to mugs like me).

Even quite recently, match shirts never left the kitman's sight until the last game of the season.

I got in touch with a man who should know the answer - my old man.

He didn't.

LOL

I can only think that as they didn't have that many spare shirts back then that maybe even a spare wasn't available so they had to dig out another with a number 7 or 9 on the back of it

As long as they got the basic colours right I think they were satisfied.  Remember when we beat scum away in the 70s, with Brian Flynn scoring the goal, and the team had Man U black shorts on.

What a shower of fcking shit, that sort of crap really pisses me off.  

Still, me being a spelling pedant, allegedly, that advertisement sort of makes me feel my role in society is more justified now.  But the price they're asking, that's a disgrace, I hope no one even considers buying one.  I feel almost compelled to write to the dealer or even report the bastards.
