Classic Cut

The 2005/06 season didn’t suit any of these teams – but their kits most certainly did

WORDS Tayler Willson | PHOTOGRAPHY Chris Ower-Davis

RANGERS

Following a season under Alex McLeish that saw them win both the league and the League Cup, Rangers joined forces with a new sportswear label for 2005/06. This famous white away strip features a thick red column down its centre – with the club crest and maker’s logo on either side – and red-and-blue piping. The team, led by Barry Ferguson, lost just one game in the Champions League that season, but ultimately six draws and one win meant they went no further than an away-goals defeat to Villarreal in the first knockout stage.

MANCHESTER UNITED

This wasn’t a great Champions League campaign for Manchester United: Alex Ferguson’s side finished bottom of their group behind Villarreal, Benfica and Lille, scoring only three goals in the process. At least they were wearing a much-loved strip. It’s that traditional vibrant red with a centralised logo and club crest, completed with strikes of white across the neck and arm. Regardless of the outcome that season, it’s a kit that will always be fondly remembered.

PSV EINDHOVEN

PSV’s 2004/05 campaign saw them reach the semi-finals of the Champions League. But 2005/06 wasn’t quite as impressive: Guus Hiddink’s side – boasting the likes of Phillip Cocu and Michael Reiziger – fell short in the first knockout stage. However, they were at least sartorially superior this time around. The away strip was a crisp white effort, with flashes of turquoise appearing around the collar, sleeves and hem, not to mention a centralised club crest.

SPARTA PRAHA

The Czech side came rock bottom in a group containing Arsenal, Ajax and FC Thun, garnering only two points from a possible 18 – but at least they looked good doing it. Their traditional burgundy home kit was reworked into a thing of beauty for this campaign. It was decked out with a clean, white crewneck collar and matching trails down towards the armpits, with the sponsor’s logo sitting eloquently beneath the colourful club crest.
