  1. Were any of the long sleeved versions employed for the 1988/89 game? If not it would suggest the long sleeved versions were a second batch where the matching stripe material was applied. The first batch were presumably more of a rush job and just used the existing away stripes.

    This may also partially explain why the 1989/90 version was the old template and not a whole new design – the material being quite different in 1989/90 on the home and away shirts from the shadow pattern of 1988/89.
