Ranked! The 17 worst kits of the 2018/19 season

Arsenal home shirt 2018-19

Eurgh – these horrors aren’t getting past FFT’s style council this summer. Greg Lea gets his Gok Wan on...

17. Wolves, away

Wolverhampton Wanderers home kit

In our humble opinion, Wolves should always have a black away kit, preferably with splashes of gold dotted around the design. This white number is bland and dull, exacerbated by the jarring shades of grey used in the sponsor’s logo.

16. Brighton, away

Brighton away kit

There’s a reason green is an underrepresented colour in football kits. Brighton have disappointingly chosen to ditch last season’s yellow uniform in favour of this pitch-friendly camouflage top, which should at least allow Lewis Dunk to hide more easily when he’s conceded another own goal. (Sorry, Lewis).

15. PSG, home

PSG home kit

We get what PSG were trying to do here, but it doesn’t really cut the (French) mustard – particularly when you observe it up close. The central red zig-zag may or may not be a print of the sound wave produced by one Neymar squeal after a slight tap on the ankle.

14. Roma, away

Roma away kit

When will clubs learn? Grey isn’t a good colour for an away kit. Roma should have got Alex Ferguson on the blower.

13. Arsenal, home

Arsenal home kit

The Marmite of 2018/19 kits. Arsenal’s home offering has fiercely divided opinion both among and outside the club’s fan base – it’s essentially the new Wenger In/Wenger Out. For our money, the faded red sleeves look naff and the subtle shade change around the chest is superfluous, blud.

12. Manchester City, third

Man City third 2018/19

Disclaimer: this is just a leaked version for now. But there’s bold and then there’s reckless, and this combination of purple and orange is far too much to stomach. The graphic print only adds to the messiness, which is a shame given that City produced a beautifully clean claret away kit last time out.
