Football League Classics – Division 1, 1990-91 (part 2)

Manchester City

City’s home strip is unchanged but they’ve had to update their change kit as last season’s maroon and white striped shirt was troublesome in terms of solving clashes. For the latter part of 1989-90, a plain maroon shirt was worn and this is based on that, albeit with a different collar.

While the 1989-90 yellow third shirt has been abandoned, a plain white effort is available if required.

Manchester United

For the first time since joining forces with adidas ten years ago, Manchester United do not have a white change shirt. Instead, the new home kit, which features a wrapover neck and a zig-zag tonal patter as well as red-panelled shorts, is joined by a patterned blue away strip which is likely to be too much for the traditionalists but could prove popular with younger fans.

The previous away shirt is retained as a third option, with the shirts slightly different to those used for the last two years.

Norwich City

The Canaries are unchanged from last season, with the white change kit unlikely to see any game-time in the league.

Nottingham Forest

A new home strip for Forest which is a slight evolution of the previous style, though the black panels on the shorts do look somewhat out of place. The away kit launched last year – which is very similar to the Derby County home – remains for a second season.
