Ciao tutti e benvenuti to my blog. As you may know, I have a passion for Italian football, a passion that was kindled by it being available on Channel 4 in the 1990’s and early 00’s whilst the Premier League was hidden away on Sky.
As part of channelling this passion, I have decided to create a tournament to decide the most important question of all, who had the best kit in Serie A at the time? I appreciate that I may sound like a pure anorak at this point, but I think it might be interesting.
There are some ground rules before we start however, and these are.
- Home kits only – If more people other than me and my girlfriend read this maybe we can do away kits.
- In order to qualify for this tournament, clubs have to have been in Serie A for at least 5 of the seasons from 1990-2000. Clubs that lose out on this rule include Zdenek Zeman’s brilliant Foggia side and the Vicenza team that won the Coppa Italia in 1997.
- The third rule of Best Serie A Kit of the 1990’s is, please talk about Best Serie A kit of the 1990’s.
Thanks to rule 2, and my calculations, there are seventeen teams that qualify for this prestigious tournament. First there will be a qualifier between two teams who spent five years in Serie A in the decade, then a straight knockout tournament with no seeding, kind of like what the Champions League should be now. Ciao for now.
