I've just been looking at a feature in yesterday's match programme and it is of the away shirt worn in the Waddle (1997/98 season).

The shirt featured is the white one shown on this pic of Kurt Nogan. Can anyone confirm we wore this during the 97/98 season, I thought we'd worn yellow with claret shorts but I suspect now I'm wrong.

That was earlier. I am pretty sure we played in green and black. Halves but at least not blue and white.

The green and black halves was a Mitre kit, worn in 93/94.


The one above was definitely worn in 1996/97 but I didn't think it had also been worn in 97/98.

I've still got that shirt, may have been the season after.

If you look at the program for 27th Jan 98 it show's Glenn Little wearing Claret and Yellow for the AutoWindscreens game against Notts County.

I can remember having the Claret aboard car thing during that season and it was the Claret and Yellow one. - view external link (http://www.clarets-mad.co.uk/feat/edw4/programmes__season_199798_743067/index.shtml)

Gentile wearing a yellow and claret number. Pretty sure I saw a pic of Lee Howey in it as well.

Wasn't the Green and Black in Jimmy Mullins time. It wasn't the season in the First Division because that season we had yellow with black stripes but if I remember rightly it was the season when we lent the "Jade and Black" shirts to Southend? and thumped them 5-0?

Was it the season we were promoted to the 1st Division under Jimmy?

I certainly remember that some of the pre-Season games under waddle were played in that white and blue shirt seen being worn by Nogan(who is incidentally celebrating an equaliser at the Den).

I think there might have been a delay in the arrival of the yellow one.

DiB calling Dib (:) ).
I reckon the yelolw and black stripe you're thinking of is the (for want of a better word) celebratory shirt for when we got to Wembley in the '94 play-offs, although oddly enough, we played in our usual claret and blue.

For the Waddle season, it was definitely the yellow shirt and claret shorts.
If I could be arsed (I've had a couple of glasses with Sunday lunch), I'd dig out a picture of my then 9 year old son asking Chris Woods for an autograph

Do you have a picture of the reply?

I thought it was the green/black quartered effort - wasn't it Adidas at the time?

As above, the green/black halved shirt was Mitre and was 93/94, the Wembley season. We only won once in it and it was 21 years ago today in the FA Cup at York.

Re: TuftyBeamish post 8 - it was Nogan at Millwall.


I've now looked at the progs and we played Man City at home in a friendly. The front cover was a pic from the Gremio game when we wore the away kit.

This year we get a say on the colour of the away shirt which i think is a brilliant plan by the club

Not heard that but not surprised. That's how David Baldwin did things at Bradford. Despite all the claims from the club, this years black and tin foil kits have not sold very well at all.

Yellow and Claret together is just lovely. B)

Daz bentley tweeted it earlier.

White for me

Personally I don't like yellow but I accept it is one of our traditional away colours so yellow, white or sky blue would be more than OK with me.

Interestingly we've not played in a sky blue shirt since Wembley in 2009.

I had the White one but I thought it was the third kit.

This tin foil kit- can you actually buy it??

'Despite all the claims from the club, this years black and tin foil kits have not sold very well at all.'

That doesn't surprise me.
First and foremost we are Claret and Blue and the away kit is a matter of taste.
I'm guessing the r*v*rs supporting geezer from the shop had a say in the black and silver nonsense.

The bloke running the shops told me about three weeks ago that the black shirt was the best ever selling away shirt and he had the figures to prove it.

When I said the white shirt in the last Premier League season blew it out of the water he said he only had figures for the last three years.

I laughed and left.

i thought the white one nogan is wearing was a third kit with the claret and yellow being the away kit. i had both and thought i got them around the same time.

last seasons white/claret and the white/black PL kits have been our best away ones.

the one off argentina kit was a belter and should be resurrected.

The White one Nogan is wearing was the away kit from the previous season when Heath was the manager. This then changed to the yellow one for the next season whilst the home quartered one was retained. I think I'm right in saying that it's the last time we wore the same shirt for two consecutive seasons.

"I think I'm right in saying that it's the last time we wore the same shirt for two consecutive seasons."


The quartered one is definitely the last home shirt we wore for two seasons.

I'm pleased we've cleared up the away shirt one.

Didn't we batter Southend when they wore it at the Turf after forgetting theirs?

With the yellow one I remember looking over to the Jimmy Mac on the first game of the season and it seemed every other person had one on. Think people bought it 'cos it'd been a while since we'd had a yellow away shirt.
