Here is the first hall of Fame made by Maire Ofeire.
Following last week’s first Hall of Shame with some true horrors in it, in this episode you’ll see some of Maire’s favourite shirts of all time
Next week Hall of Shame again.
10. River Plate (home) 2006-2007 adidas
The Argentine side are one of the world’s most famous clubs. The design of the 2006-2007 home jersey where the red diagonal cuts through the white shirt has become part and parcel of the club’s history.
9. Chelsea (home) 2008-2009 Adidas
The London side have become one of the world’s top clubs in the 2000s. To go with their current classy side they have this classy home strip.
8. Cork City (home) 1984-1989 Adidas
Cork City are one of the biggest sides in Irish club football. Between 1984-1988 they adorned the turf of Turner’s Cross wearing their famous green and white stripes bearing the sponsor of favourite Irish beverage, Guinness.
7. Barcelona (home) 1996-1997 Kappa
From Romario to Messi and Ronaldinho to Henry, famous names have worn the famous stripes of Barcelona. The shirt does not bare the name of a sponsor and even today the space has been given over to charity, UNICEF.
6. Holland (home) 1984-1987 Adidas
The team that brought us total football brought us a totally cool jersey. The Oranje shirt is one of those stand out shirts in international football.
5. Arsenal away (3rd kit) 2007- 2009 Nike
In 2007, Arsenal launched an away kit that was a subtle tribute to famed Gunners manager Herbert Chapman who brought glory to the club during the 1930s. It is currently the club’s 3rd kit.
4. Argentina (home) 2008- 2010 Adidas
The blue and white vertical stripes of Argentina’s home jersey is one of the world’s most recognisable. It will always be a classic.
3. West Ham (away) 1980-1983 Adidas
West Ham had a series of highs and lows in the 1980s. The arrival of their away kit in 1980 most definitely counts as a high. A simple design that contains the classic Adidas logo, this jersey shows that simplicity is best.
2. Sao Paulo (home) 1975
From the club that brought us Kaka is this week’s number two. Again another team that live by the motto that simplicity is best where the club’s jersey has become renowned for its horizontal red and black stripes. This 1975 effort is a prime example.
1. AC Milan (home) 2006-2007 Adidas
The Italian giants are home to some of the world’s greatest players and greatest kits. The Rossoneri are instantly recognisable worldwide for their black and red vertical striped home jersey. The 2006-2007 shirt is a sublime example of how to make a retro model modern.
