I’ve had a soft spot for Roma with a long time, and I still occasionally wear my 2000-01 Kappa home shirt.

That kit was their first after joining forces with Kappa following a spell with Diadora, and last year I wrote a piece on how well the various elements interchanged.

All told, Roma and Kappa have had three different spells together – 1983-86, 2000-03 and 2007-13 (incidentally, they’ve been with both adidas and Diadora twice).

Ed Moynihan, who runs the excellent Forza 27, is also someone with a deep affection for the giallorossim, and when I offered him the chance to come up with a Fantasy Kit Friday suggestion, he proposed an alternate history where Roma had Kappa in the early 1990s.

Barcelona were Kappa’s big contract at the time so it makes sense to utilise their templates. The home is two-tone dark red:

Roma Fantasy Home-01

The away is a simple transposition of Barca’s aqua away:

Roma Fantasy Away-01

And the third also borrows from the home style but with halves rather than stripes, referencing Roma’s 2001-02 European kit.
