Football kit ID challenge
English

I hope this may be of interest to one or two.

My son posted me a link last week to www.thebeautiful92 which poses the challenge of can you identify the 92 English league clubs from their football kit. They also give the year the club was founded and a hint/clue.

I have found this very interesting, the subtle differences in some of the kits is very intriguing. I gave Match of the Day and The Football League show a serious coat of looking at on Saturday night although I did not cheat as my computer was off and have so far identified 59. I have not used any hints or clubs websites so I think i'm doing pretty well.

Please lets not post any answers in case someone wants to try it.

I'd be interested to know if you can get your teams kit first go, it's not as easy as you'd think unless you have one of the obvious ones.

I didn't get Liverpool (not my team) first time but it's my only failure so far.

Have fun.

Thanks, must have missed that off when I typed it in as it would not copy from Word for some reason and I was getting naffed off.

So far I've got six right and two wrong. It's harder than it looks as I'm looking at some of those kits and I have not got a clue. Probably not going to do very well.

Well I give up as I can only get 30 kits with 3 wrong answers. I do not believe that anyone got all 92 without cheating.

Finally got all 92 today so I

Finally got all 92 today so I can now be officially classed as a football anorak. No cheating but did give the Football League show 2 good coats of looking at. As they don't show sleeves it does make it difficult in places, the all red kit for one. I found it very interesting though. I did get three wrong and had to re-do although 2 were spelling mistakes- oops.
