As far as we can see, St Pauli have never had adidas kits – too mainsteam, perhaps – so Matthew Ashcroft came up with suggestion for today’s edition.

Obviously, the style he refers to is one close to our hearts, given that it was also worn by Cork City, and it’s a template which is quite versatile. A shame, perhaps, that it wasn’t utilised more, but maybe if it had been it wouldn’t be so special.
St Pauli did have predominantly white home shirts back at the turn of the 1980s into the 90s, and Jack Daniel’s were not the sponsor until later in the 90s, but there was a guy wearing a watch in Ben Hur and that’s still rated highly.
