Football Kits Ranked 'Work Of Art' To 'Burn It'
It's Football Shirt Friday in aid of the Bobby Moore fund, so we decided to ranked the best and worst football kits of all time, from 'work of art' to 'burn it.'
Everyone loves a football shirt, whether it's their own team's kit from the current season or an absolute classic from elsewhere, the right kit can be a thing of beauty.
Of course the wrong kit can tarnish your club forever, especially the season it belonged it. Can you even remember a terrible kit winning any silverware?
We ranked some of the best, and worst, kits of all time. It's not going to be perfect, and you'll no doubt have your own very strong opinions of what we've picked but please be kind...

Quick explanation of that middle tier, in case you were somehow confused, just wanted to give a shout out to some lovely kits from League Two and non league football in England from this year that you might not have seen.
Fiorentina have managed to pull off what should be almost impossible, as they released a kit in the 'work of art' and 'burn it' categories from the same year, 1992.
Whilst the first kit is a thing of beauty, and could have been joined by other shirts from the same team, their away shirt had to be pulled because the zig-zag shapes in the shirt accidentally made a swastika, oops.
The rest of the 'burn it' pile are generally some modern shockers with shrimps, muscles and a tuxedo all gracing the front of the shirt.
Broccoli and a Simpson meme have also featured on teams' shirts in recent years but there wasn't room for every bad kit!
