  1. The eight year kit almost had a Premier League life as well. To ‘celebrate’ having Glenn Hoddle as manager, the design (without Adidas markings) was one of five choices that us Southampton fans could vote upon in the early 2000s to be our new kit. Someone in the Saints marketing team purchased the shirt, crudely took off the markings and put a Saints badge on it, and a photo appeared in the match programme and the local paper, while a mascot dressed in the fudged shirt modelled it at an end of season game, accompanying four other mocked up and more traditionally looking potential Southampton shirts. The Monaco version was widely jeered at, and despite a voting campaign by Portsmouth fans, it finished well down the list. This was fortunate; the man who the shirt honoured soon left to take the managers position at Spurs.
