Top Of The League?.

Top Of The League?.

With supposed leaks of our new kit, what was your favourite shirt of all time?.

Is your selection based on what we won in said era of the shirt?, is it because of the style?. What about the emblem, does that play a part in your selection?.

A link to jog your memories...

Oh only joking! The 81 fa cup final shirt is my favourite. Still have it ready for my son to wear in about 8 years. Here's some good pics to jog the memory from our last season!

It's like anything cider. I think if the lads like it, it's easier to wear with pride! We need plenty of that! The new kits look grand to me. But without googling, how many know what AIA is, and what they do? Not just spurs fans but everyone! Mansion was a bit like that! We do find some great and wealthy sponsors, but a lot of folks have never heard of them. Great marketing to get that awareness, but they need us to perform as much as we want us to!

I like the tops from the 60's, totally understand the shirt sponsorship these days, but a top does look so much nicer without it on. Understated classics from the 60s for me.

Like Dublin - 1981 Shirt takes pride ... simple and the famous cockerel in the middle ... GREAT; As for away love the yellow one as in 1982 final... for me it relaunced the Spurs!!! Of the modern era - the home shirt of two years ago - another classic...

Simply dislike the sponsors on shirts - never got used to it - the least worst is the Hewlett Packard of 1998-99 season.

I love the club's approach of wearing a different brand to most of the others - why wear nike and adidas ? when there is only one Hotspur !!! UnderAmour is great!

I remember one April a few years back. Spurs were due on Sky, Sunday afternoon 4 o'clock kick off.

So I get up in a fashion (Sunday morning hangover) and realize that I had not washed my Spurs top. (Have a few but stored unworn). So, in the washing machine it goes.

After getting it out of the washing machine, time is rattling on, and I was meeting my mates for a pre game drinky poos, with the top still damp, and myself pressed for time, I thought it wise to dry with the lasses hair dryer. All was going well until I placed the hairdryer inside the shirt.

The back of the hairdryer sucked the shirt into the hairdryer itself, end result big hole. Gutted!. Only one thing for it, don a jacket over the top, the front still being all good. Downside was the spring sunshine making an appearance, I was roasting, but could not take my jacket off. Only one thing for it...A few ciders to cool me down... and a Monday hangover.

Why do the colours of the second /third kit change so much and why do we the fans so willing to being mugged by paying such an extortionate prices... it used be just a 50p scarf to show your support.... then a £30 shirt once every two years ... then 3 shirts every year at £50 to 4 shirts at £60 every 7 months.... Are we mugs ?!!! (Hopefully that's a queue Dublin.... ) No more expenditure on merchandise I say!!!!!

Highgate, I think you've answered your own question about the constant changes! I stick to the Spurs shop clothing lines and avoid purchasing the jerseys because the material doesn't really suit a large sweaty flame haired adonis like me...

I did then have a little chuckle to myself, wondering how some will be able to turn the article into just that...who's the next manager. LOL!.

Dublin, you have come with a another gem yet again.... just BRILLIANT!!!!! I wonder what price is the black/grey halves shirts...

I always used to wait till the close season to buy the shirts at about £5 - £10... think they've cottoned on.... I bought the dark blue one this year (first one in 5 years) as I thought we were going to win the League!!!! (as well as the FA,EL, Capital cups of course!!!)

I love the Spurs memorabilia myself - but those shirts/ clothing line of Spurs Shop are so limited compared to others... anyway at the last count I have about 800 lapel pin badges dating from 1972!!! Programmes 1974 - 1996 (i think) and plenty of capper cuttings and from Shoot! and Match.... and pictures from training sessions!!! Misspent youth aye!!!

Di Canio should have been arrested for indecent exposure. Defoe said: “The first thing I noticed about Paolo was how tight his shorts were. “I am not lying – he had size small. If you go to the West Ham shop, it is the kiddies’ size..... “I said, ‘Paolo, why is your kit so tight?’ He said it was because when his kit is tight and he gets in certain situations in the game and players try to pull his shirt, because it is so tight to him, they cannot pull it and he can get away from people.

Highgate, the grey and black halves was another favourite of mine! My sons first baby grow also! Enjoyed walking him out with us both wearing the same!

Like Dublin, I'm partial to the Le Coq Sportif tops from the early to mid eighties, and the hummel 1987 home gear. Pure nostalgia!! I still like the 1991 FA Cup Final jersey (although was slagged mightily for the long shorts back then!) and also the sky blue adidas away one from the early 2000's.
