    The Yellow away strip is really popular which is in contrast to our famous Brown one which was ridiculed at the time but is now an Iconic kit. We've had some naff kits over the years but I guess it's all down to taste.
    So what's your favourite ?Mine is the plain old Sky Blue one we first had under Jimmy Hill,which I wore with pride playing over the local fields as a kid.

    For me it is the Purple and Yellow Pony kit.

    Amazing!

    Best Home: 87-89 - Speedie in his pomp, great side.
    Best away: 89-91 - Yellow with the black stripes at the top. Reminds me of Big Cyrille terrorising top flight defences.

    That's the one I said is my favourite.
    When you see the pictures of Curtis,Hudson,that's the kit they're wearing.

    The Sky Blue with white and dark blue 'tram tracks' from around 75-1980 ish has to be the best Cov kit of all time, I just wish one day when we play back in the City, they bring it back. The old type material and quality of the shirt { Probably made in England} was fantastic.

    The 'Egg timer' home kit was the first one I ever owned (a 6th birthday present). Didn't and still don't like the Chocolate away one, much prefered the same design in red.

    Green and Black away kit from the mid 90's. The retro affect from a couple of season back was the best home one for me.

    I liked the one with the big t, late 70s was it. the time you lot were been sponsored by Talbot. brown kit was cool but my favourite would be the blue version of that.
