The Football Attic Kit Podcast 11 - Very Nearly A Christmas Special

"It's Christmastime, there's no need to be afraid." So sang Paul Young, but then again Paul Young didn't have to listen to two wizened men in their 40's talking about football kits for nearly two hours.

Yes, it's the Football Attic's 'Very Nearly A Christmas Special' episode, and have we got a festive treat for you! (Well not necessarily... 'treat' is a very nebulous word...)

This time around, we're looking at the kits worn by those teams that found themselves at the top of the Premier League table on Christmas Day from 1992 through to 2016. And it's not all Man United and Chelsea, you know... There are one or two surprise inclusions that you may have forgotten about with the passing of time. Tune in and be reminded of the good, the bad and the ugly of modern British kit design...

There's also another Kit Off vote (details below) plus the latest Kit News. Have a Merry Christmas? Of course you will, if you download Episode 11 of the Football Attic Kit Pod!

To hear Episode 11, you can subscribe to us on iTunes or you can download the podcast here. Thanks for listening!
