Are you fed up with paying £70+ for your teams newest replica shirt? I know I am. It seems like every month a new version of my teams kit is released, home, away, 3rd change and now a bloody training kit too! Well, I’ve decided enough is enough. I don’t want to pay a small fortune for a football shirt that is out of date in one season and if I’m brutally honest many of these new kits are just plain hideous.
Modern shirt manufacturers seem to take enormous pleasure in mucking around with a clubs traditional image. The new Southampton shirt doesn’t have any stripes! The new Liverpool away shirt looks like a jumper your Nan would give you for christmas, and Cardiff fans had to suffer the humiliation of changing from their traditional blue shirt to a red one on the whim of the clubs new owners.
Footie fans are already being fleeced at the turnstiles, and paying through the nose for a new shirt every season only adds insult to injury. So what can you do about it? well, for a start you can say no to new shirts! Instead you can show your support with a timeless Retro Football Shirt. They cost half the price of a new shirt and instead of looking like an overpaid, diving whinge bag like Ronaldo or Suarez you’ll be paying homage to your clubs legendary players. If you can still remember a time when footballers didn’t cry, goalkeepers played with broken necks and a pre match warm up consisted of a few pints before kick off then a retro footie shirt is definitely for YOU.

Our featured shirts come from the decade when football was truly class – the 1980s.
The first shirt is my favourite England kit. Worn by Captain Marvel himself – Bryan Robson. Robbo and the lads made a fantastic start to the 1982 World Cup beating France 3-1 in Bilbao.
The second shirt is a classic French top. Worn for the 1986 World Cup Finals in Mexico. France made it all the way to the semi-finals but Germany proved too strong for Platini and his team.
