I’m not big into football but know enough to know that some strips are things of great beauty. I’ve had a thing about claret and blue ever since wearing it as a fully paid-up member of Fulham Gymnastics Club as a kid (I used to tell people I was either a West Ham or Aston Villa fan as a result). I remember Fulham FC wearing ‘Harrods Green’ and yellow back in 2010 in honour of club chairman Mohammed Al Fayed, despite critics saying that its players blended in with the turf and the colour choice therefore signalled strategical disaster. I don’t think it was long before they binned it. Have you ever chosen a team for its colours?
