TTU Awards 2009/2010: Best Kit

The best shirt goes to West Bromwich Albion for their home number, and not just for the lack of sponsor. Understated, traditional, no colours totally anathema to the club, unsullied by ugly panels, manufacturer’s logo and crest in alignment across the chest, a t-shirt style collar … it’s practically perfect. It stood out from the template kits elsewhere in the league (yes, that’s you Middlesbrough, Peterborough, Plymouth Argyle, Bristol City, et al.)

Honourable mentions to Swansea, Sheffield Wednesday and QPR, each for their home strips.

    Totally agree on the subject of template kits. It's insidious how the likes of Adidas attempt to impose their latest design on all and sundry, with only the colours changing in each case. Baggies' lack of sponsor isn't perhaps entirely by choice but it's still refreshing to witness.

    It's an alright kit, I suppose, speaking as a Baggie.

    But I dislike the big blue panel on the back, designed to encourage more £££ to be spent on the buyer's favourite player's number and name.

    And I still haven't got over the bizarre decision to ditch our traditional badge, because it didn't have the club's name on it, for the clumsy current version: http://www.ltlf.co.uk/forest/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/west-brom-logo.gif
