    Compared to the Liverpool away at the time and it shows how much better the shade of Green makes of it.

    Yeah, it was the Albanian one that was done up for them. Full story here. It's well worth a read - lots there that I didn't know about, such as the Albanian government changing the crest the previous week and only faxing the design through to the kit makers in Cork the day before the game.

    And we also kitted out Lithuania in the same campaign, which I never knew, as they arrived with one jersey and it clashed with ours. Again, story in that link.

    Our tightest match so far just finished - with the last vote, the 85/86 kit pips it 5-4. I'm slightly surprised by that to be honest.

    While I'm here actually, I'll chip in with a vote for the 04-06 kit over the 92-94 one for the same reasons John83 gave.

    More retro action now as the 86-87 kit takes on the Father Dougal kit from 94-95.

    86-87. I explained my reservations about the Fr Dougal kit in the previous round.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    Seems to be. I have always remembered that we kitted out Latvia though. Adidas/Millfield/Whoever in Cork may have done all three sure!

    I vote for the 95-96 kit as it's the first one I ever owned and I don't much care for all-green kits.

    Comfortable win for the 92-94 kit there, 6-2. Slightly surprised by that one too if I'm honest.

    86/87 v 94/95 still open for business, as we move on to match 5, and a proper battle of new v old. It's the new 2021 kit against the "We woz robbed" kit of 78-83

    Oh, and while I'm at it, I'll throw in my vote for 94-95. Like Bonnie, I don't really like all-green kits - though the 86/87 one is an exception to that for some reason. Maybe it's just because we had a player like Liam Brady back then! But Dougas aside, I do like the 94-95 kit and the bit of background design, so it wins narrowly for me.

    86-87 and 78-83 for me. Maybe I'm just a sucker for a bit of retro.

    I think the popularity of the 92/94 kit would be down to it being released during our formative years for those of us in our mid-to-late 30s.

    I barely recall 1988, remember 1990 just, Euro92 qualifying passed me by, but WC94 qualifying is still vivid to this day.

    ---

    I'm voting for the 2021 kit as it is a beautiful homage to probably our best ever (non-Italia 90) shirt.

    That's not the 2021 photo you used before? That one is very unflattering. I'm going to sit out this round.
