    Another whitewash as the Kerr kit defeats the Euro 2012 hoops 10-0, and installs the hoops as an early favourite for worst kit, which we'll be voting for later on...

    The rugby kit holds an early lead over the 2012/13 kit (which I'll cast my vote behind btw - there's some decent 80s efforts on the way now, but I'm not gone on that particular one). Votes taken all day.

    But - more 80s? Here we go. There's the 86/87 kit which was the one we wore when qualifying for a finals for the first time ever -



    And it's up against a novel design with white and orange pinstripes running down it, worn from 83 to 85.

    I’ll go 83-85 as the Liam Brady one is basically Italia 90 without the boomerangs and the orange stripe in the collar

    Tough one, made my decision based on which kit I'd like to wear myself now. 86/87 by a hair. Other one pretty cool too

    That “kit” - an important distinction - is probably my favourite kit on the whole. It’s the only time we’ve got the all green exactly right.
    It’s kind of strange that we went from that to thenEuro 88 kit which is weak IMO compared to other Adidas efforts at the same championship.
    The 86/87 kit gets my vote.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    That pic is taken just before Brady releases Stapo for the penalty foul iirc.

    I love that kit but I do wish it was an orange stripe instead of a gold one. Although that might not work.

    The 86-87 is very nice too. It's a close one for me

    86/87 for me. It may be sacrilege, but I prefer it to the Italia 90 kit. The 83-85 one is awful.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    I make that a quieter 5-3 win for the 85/86 kit, and the 2012-13 kit goes into the repechage.

    Still taking votes on the 80s derby, but two more kits now for your consideration. First up is the WC2002 qualifying kit, modelled here by Steve Finnan actually scoring a goal -



    And it's up against the Euro 88 kit, which carried over into Italia 90 qualifying as well -

    2000-2002 Steve Finnan for me. Reminds me of the great performance in Netherlands.

    An unusual jersey in that I never saw that material in another jersey. Nice collar too.

    Never understood the netting in the sleeves of the '88 jersey. To keep your upper arm cool?

    Finnan kit because I had it as a kid. Great shade of green and comfy to wear.

    Euro 88, and that’s the bottom line, cause Stone Cold says so.

    86-87 the winner for me.
    That 83-83 effort … ye gods! Pinstripe pandering to the Hooray Henrys of the era. The prawn sandwich brigade before there were prawn sandwiches.

    Euro 88 in the late kick-off. The sleeve hoops were a little weird, but iirc drop shoulders were in round then and that showed off the look. Only thing was you needed square shoulders to pull it off and I was a scrawny wee runt with, as père Grise often noted, a chest like a hen's forehead, and no hope of filling the jersey!
    Hello, hello? What's going on? What's all this shouting, we'll have no trouble here!

    88 for me too. I like both pretty well. Both designs incorporate a little orange well. I guess the shamrock crest swings it.

    Euro 88 kit - finding it hard to separate the kits from the success or lack of success that was achieved in them. Still though, much prefer it to the 2000/2001 kit.

    86/87 for the first one.

    I'm torn over the second..McGrath adidas is an almost perfect jersey, destroyed by the sleeve choice. The Finnan one was the perfect shade of green, proper now-vintage collar, but was a horrible baggy mess too. McGrath just shades it.
