Lecce 3rd 2011-12

My favourite Italian team here, purely based on the colours and the fact we (the royal we, Watford FC) are both a bit crap ;)
This is last seasons third shirt made by long term kit supplier Asics. The collar is rather snazzy with the yellow and red stripes from the home shirt. The compass on the front of the shirt displays the location of the town of Lecce in the south east of Italy.

Celta Vigo Home 2001-02

Blast from the past here with a classic Celta Vigo shirt from Umbro. This template design was the same as the England shirt at the time. I can't even remember where I brought the shit from, think it was subside sports, can't be sure but I do remember wanting the dark blue third jersey but wasn't able to track it down anywhere, now classic football shirts have it in stock I might have to make a purchase. The quality of this shirt is immense, the thick fabric and attention to detail, one of the best shirts Umbro have produced in my opinion.

FC Lorient 3rd 2012-13

One of my favourite shirts from last season, although technically this shirt was first used two seasons ago as the away, it was then pushed out to the 3rd shirt last season with the introduction of the white away.
The shirt features the usual Macron "boys" on the shoulder and the Bretagne flag on the back of the shirt, paying homage to the region Lorient hail from. Another one of many of my shirts purchased from Classic Football

RSC Anderlecht Away 2011-12

Anderlecht away shirt made by Adidas, same template as most Adidas teams that season, but in a very nice colour scheme, the purple and gold is a very nice touch. I was hoping to get the shirt numbered up with Sacha Kljestan, the USA international but finding the official name sets have proved difficult.

Deportivo La Coruna 3rd 2011-12

Nice and bright one here from Lotto, which I brought from classic football It's identical to the QPR away shirt from the same season, but much better 'cos it doesn't have a QPhahahaha badge ;) I think the only thing that lets this down is the red felt lotto badges on the sleeve, the felt looks really dated and the red doesn't go with the orange at all.
Looking forward to next seasons Deportivo shirts, the mock up designs look really nice, hopefully somewhere in the UK will stock them.
