Club Classics

Club: Birmingham City

Home or Away: Home

Years active: 1971 – 1975

As worn by: Trevor Francis,  Bob Latchford, Gordon Taylor, Tony Want, Roger Hynd and Stan Harland.

It’s not often we should take fashion tips from Birmingham, but the early to mid 70’s was an exception as City looked positively resplendent in this famous ‘blue penguin’ kit.  The kit was the one worn by Brum when they won promotion back to the top flight in 1972 and sported the popular intertwined lettering club logo.

In fact the kit was so popular the club have revisited it in modern times, with updated versions for the 1997-98 and  2007-08 seasons and indeed for this coming season.

How do you rate this kit..? Tragic or classic..?? Vote now!
