This Newcastle Home Shirt rated most iconic in history of the Premier League

7 years ago

A certain Newcastle home shirt has been rated the best ever Premier League design in the 25 year history of the Premier League.

The last few decades have presented Newcastle fans with the very best of replica shirts to buy and wear, or just admire, right through to some monstrosities.

FourFourTwo magazine took on the challenge as neutrals of going through the various clubs and their design, before arriving at this top 10 below.

In third place is the Chelsea design of 2001-2003, whilst the runner-up is the West Brom shirt of only two years ago, which was replica of their 1968 design.

However, way out in first place were NUFC and the superb Newcastle home shirt of 1995-1997.

A tremendous design, perfect sponsor, brilliant football, charismatic players, the only thing missing was that 1995/96 and 1996/97 saw Newcastle United finish as runners-up twice, instead of champions.

FourFourTwo rate the best Premier League shirt designs of the last 25 years:

Ranked! The 20 best Premier League shirts EVER

10th SOUTHAMPTON, 2001-2003, HOME

9th LIVERPOOL, 2013/14 (HOME)

8th WEST HAM, 1999-01 (HOME)

7th LEEDS, 1995/96 (HOME)

6th ARSENAL, 2005/06 (HOME)



3rd CHELSEA, 2001-03 (HOME)

2nd WEST BROM, 2015 (1968 REPLICA)

1st NEWCASTLE UNITED, 1995-97 (home)

“Probably the greatest shirt of the Premier League era, and certainly the most Geordie item of clothing ever: with a Newkie Brown label plastered over the top of the magpie stripes.

“It’s an adidas masterpiece that can perhaps provide a little solace for fans who still rue the fact they didn’t win the league while wearing it.”

What is your favourite Newcastle home shirt design, or is it an away one that ticks all the boxes for you?
