An interesting request from Ben Joyce today, seeking to make Chelsea’s association with Nike 13 years older than it actually is:
I’d love to see Chelsea 04/05 or 05/06’s centenary year but in Nike’s Total 90 template of Euro 2004 fame. Adored those kits as a kid and would love to see how they’d look. Away and thirds, too! #fantasykitfriday

The Total 90 template was a versatile one, with two neck styles and two different piping formats.
Essentially, the home here is a recoloured Arsenal away with the Arsenal home used as the basis for the awyay
Chelsea’s actual third kit in 2004-05 was the change kit from the previous season, but rather than using a 2003-04 Nike style we felt uniformity was better and so have utilised the Paris Saint-Germain design.
