Special permission given for team to wear retro kit

6 years ago

Special permission has been given by the Premier League for West Brom to wear a retro kit instead of their usual strip(s).

On April 11 the Baggies will pay tribute to their legendary striker Jeff Astle who sadly is no longer with us, wearing the strip against Leicester.

The team will wear the style of strip worn in the 1968 FA Cup final when Jeff Astle inspired the team to success at Wembley.

This is only the second time in the Premier League era that this has happened, with Manchester United in 2008 commemorating the 50 years anniversary of the Munich air disaster in similar fashion.

A great idea and  a special day for all concerned, especially in terms of bringing the memories flooding back.

What about Newcastle fans though?

What strip would you like to see the United players wear as a special tribute one day?

The Milburn strip of the 50s?

Keegan playing days?

1990’s ‘beermat’ one?

Or is there another that would be your choice?
