WHO Poll

Not the goalie, not the golf course component, but the colour.

This is just a "Hmmm..." moment while awaiting the traditional Xmas Early away nod from the office manager; nothing to get too excited about.

I've noticed that green is becoming a more "popular" colour in the kits of the top teams these days yet I'm struggling to recall more than a single incident of it among the colours of teams home & away kits in the pre-Premier league days. The shorts of Norwich is about as far as I've got.

It's obvious to me that I'm suffering a severe and terminal memory loss, so can anybody help remind me who had green as a component of their outfield kit in the days prior to the Premier league being formed?*

* - no shiny new sixpences for the winners, I'm afraid - cook's stuffed them all in the Xmas pud.

Re: Green.
Team called Celtic seem to like green
Plymouth Argyle have usually been green I think
Probably a Premier league era thing but Liverpool often have a green away kit
And of course Newcastle now sport Saudi Sportswash Green away

Re: Green.
Villa had a crazy red & green striped away kit back in the day.

I don’t understand fans who are protective over away kit colours. I’d happily have a green, not an Irish green mind you.
Khaki or British racing green.

Re: Green.
Green is popular throughout Asia. (Especially is East Asia.) Makes sense from a business perspective.

Re Zico. 1980 Cup Final. There was a toss of a coin to decide first choice for the kits a couple of weeks before the Cup Final. West Ham won and chose to play in all white as it was deemed to be their 'lucky kit' that they wore several times during the 1975 Cup run.
The sleeves on Arsenal's red and white shirts were deemed to be too similar so they played in their yellow and blue kit instead. Subbuteo released a special FA Cup double team set which had the colours completely wrong. Pictures are easily found on the net.

Liverpool had that dark green away one (Candy sponsored I think) in the mid nineties.
I remember a fat bloke who used to turn up for our five a sides wearing one and looking somewhat like a poor man's Razor Ruddock.

Newcastle away kit in the 70s had a splash of green, in a Norwich meets Brazil kind of way.

Yeah Chelsea early 70s. Quite cool and very contrasting Red shirts, white shorts and green socks .

Re: Green.
Not green but a kit question anyway. Anyone know the reason as to why both West Ham and Arsenal both wore away kits for the FA Cup Final in 1980?

Ah! Green & Black stripes!

Had a Subbuteo team in that kit - always thought it was a "made up" strip.
