Something a bit different this week.
Recently, when we covered Southampton having to wear last season’s third kit as an emergency fourth strip this term, Jonathan Bean left an interesting comment:
As a Saints fan who is overly keen on colours fitting together nicely, I’d really like it if we had a yellow kit that worked with elements of the home kit. So rather than have the ‘1976’ yellow and blue, we’d have yellow with red, white or black trim. Yeah, it would be a little bit Watford, but I think it would look good.
In fact, MoJ, is there any chance of a FKF with any of Southampton’s previous yellow away kits with trim recoloured to fit the home colours? Perhaps the 2018/19 season’s?
As well as the one from last season, we decided to do the 1976 one – the success in that Admiral strip leading to the popularity of yellow and blue – and the 1995 Pony offering. The real kits are on top, with the fantasy versions on the bottom.
