Things to note from last week’s fixtures:
- Wolves wore change socks at Bournemouth, having previously donned them in the Europa League. Unfortunately, the shade of gold doesn’t match that of the shirts
- Once again, Liverpool wore plain white socks with their change shirts, though this use was justified as Crystal Palace have blue home socks
- Norwich City wore their red change kit for the first time
- Manchester wore off-white socks with their third shirt and matching off-white alternative shorts. It’s the sixth different combination they have worn in the league, with a seventh appearing in Europe
As usual, Matt Smith has the updated Away Kits Table:
This week’s scores:
Manchester Utd 3
Norwich’s crimes have been well publicised. Despite this, an away victory may see a repetition and to hell with the criticism. Clubs get silly like this when superstition is involved.
Manchester United’s remarkable ability to bring out alternative shorts and socks to match change shirts was on display at Bramall Lane again. Can’t think of any other team which goes to such lengths and detail.
Wolves were fine in their black shorts and old gold socks at Bournemouth, but it would have been nice to have seen the latter colour in an entire ensemble.
