    not only was this kit part of my youth and as a result, in my recollection, the complete opposite of ‘shit’! it is also one of the only (few?) examples of art created by world renown artists to have graced a football league shirt. and it’s not comparable to something like the ‘artist’ quentin cook plastering some bollocks advertising garbage on brightons kit. the chupa chups logo was designed by Salvador Dali – who is surely only comparable to chris waddle in terms of pushing the boundary of their respective areas of expertise – and the overall aesthetics of the shirt would surely make dali proud that his design had graced it.

    in summary the hate for this early 2000s masterpiece is misplaced
