#TBT is back and we are inspired by our recent trip to Old Traford for the Manchester v Liverpool match. “The Theatre of Dreams” got that fuzzy nostalgia going back to a golden era for Manchester United. Back when Umbro was king and back when and The Red Devils reigned supreme. 

 

 

The kit: Manchester United 98/99

Brand: Umbro

Sponsor: Sharp

Worn by: David Beckham, Ryang Giggs, Paul Scholes, Dwight Yorke and Gary Neville

The story: One Man United’s greatest side. The class of 92 golden boys were all in their prime and so was the great, Sir Alex Ferguson. This historic squad side would win the League, League Cup and Champions League in dramatic fashion. Though they’d wear a special kit in the UCL final the classic Umbro kit seen below became legendary. Man U’s trademark red was accented by large white with black trimmed collars and those nostalgia tickling Umbro tri-diamonds flanked the sleeves. The Sharp sponsorship logo became synonymous with the kit and blended seamlessly with the overall look as well. 

Where to cop: Unlike many of the kits we feature on this segment this bad boy is not only inexpensive but also easy to find. Classicfootballshirts.uk has a stout collection ranging from short to long sleeve and from various players.
