As the game itself ended 0-0 the real winners to emerge from Crystal Palace and Barnsley’s goalless draw at Selhurst Park on Saturday were Palace’s shirt sponsors who enjoyed double exposure thanks to referee Kevin Stroud ruling that Barnsley’s black and blue-striped away kit was too similar to The Eagles’ red and blue-striped home kit and therefore forcing the Tykes to play in their opponents’ change strip…

What this really serves to highlight is just how naff Palace’s “it’s fun to learn primary colours” kits are this season.
