TTU Awards 2011-12: Worst Kit

Brighton have basically been immune to any sort of criticism for a couple of years now. Their League 1 team of 2010-11 was wondrous; they’re gradually becoming one of the UK’s foremost community clubs; the easy transition last season from the Withdean to Falmer was the kind of move that the majority of football supporters will only get to realise in their imaginations … the list goes on…

Rival fans given to feelings of envy must have been indebted, then, to the person who rubber stamped 2011-12’s away kit, The Two Unfortunates’ Worst Kit winner this year. One word that has been used to describe the lime green and black outfit is ‘striking’, the adjective adopted by Albion’s official site upon launch, although we’re not so sure that others will have been as polite.

Honourable mentions go to Gillingham’s gaudy pink away strip, highly visible on shots of the Rainham End during various highlights from the Priestfield; Forest’s uncomfortable-looking collar; Sheffield Wednesday’s slate grey number and Yeovil’s Stabilo Boss tribute.

2010-11 winner: Southampton (home)
2009-10 winner: Newcastle (away)

    You know it’s bad when it looks like someone has coloured it in with a highlighter pen. :)

    ‘Easy’ transition from Withdean to Falmer? 3 public inquiries, countless demos, campaigns, etc, etc. Didnt feel that easy tbh !

      Sorry, John, I should have clarified that I was referring to this season rather than the years it took to get the green light. I was really taken by how quickly BHA fans had warmed to Falmer on my visit back in September (the 3-3 against Leeds) and how it already seems to have acquired a bit of an indentity.

    Couldn’t agree more. Swarfega green I call it. And they seem to wear it even when there’s no colour clash

    So this is the worst kit, yet it actually does its job as it stands out ?

    See you voted the “Best Kit” a plan red Cheltenham Town shirt, despite it being plain and boring. Wacky kits are always the best.
