10 thoughts on “Change/goalkeeper kit double-ups – missed opportunities

  1. Benfica in 2006/07 is another example.

    They had an adidas Teamgeist style away kit in cream, with red and black trim, black shorts and socks. The first-choice keeper kit was the exact same colour scheme, but using the Teamgeist goalkeeper template

  2. Everton had a couple of very close shirts between 3rd / away and keeper with umbro in the early to mid 2000s

    1. On the subject of Everton, Richard Wright wore a long-sleeved white away shirt at Plymouth Argyle in a televised FA Cup tie in 2005. Everton’s two goalkeeper kit choices that season were black and green, but neither was suitable against Plymouth’s dark green shirts under floodlights.

  3. And for possibly half a point, I could perhaps nominate Real Madrid from 98/99 too… they had an all-navy change strip with some fine white horizontal stripes on the front, whereas the first choice keeper kit was the adidas Save template in navy with three white horizonal stripes and appeared to use the navy outfield away shorts too.

  4. Seeing how close some of the outfield players’ kits were to compared to GK kits make me think why not just make same kit that both outfield players and GK could wear when needed. Leeds this season is very annoying too, although the template of GK shorts wouldn’t look great on outfield players if they wore that kit

  5. At the start of the 2002/03 season, Everton keeper Steve Simonsen wore the all black third kit in goal away at Manchester City
