Manchester United 2007-2008 Away Jersey

This kit is only used for one season, so this is a very rare kit, even though its still being used very recently!

Unlike the home kit for the most recent season which is plain red, this black jersey have red seam running down from the collar to the armpit on both side.

Other than that, it has the same features as the home ones. For example, the "The Red Devils" patch and the "NikeFit" embroidery at the bottom of the jersey.

At the back ,the same line with the devil silhouetteat the top and MUCF at the bottom can also bee seen, with the only difference is the colour combination.

Inside the jersey, you can also se the devil's silhouette op top of the shirt's size label.

Here's a picture of Rooney in this kit:

Manchester United 2006-2007 Away Jersey

This jersey is the 2006-2007 jersey, and is also the 2007-2008 third jersey, especially for European cup matches.

Just like the 2006-2007 home kit , the away kit is also designed to look retro. The club crest is also located inside a shield.

As for the sponsor, the word "AIG" and the box is outlined with gold colour.

The sleeve and collar part is also coloured gold for the retro look.

At the back of the jersey is the nameset RONALDO 7.

As all Premier League clubs have to use the league's style of lettering and numbers, the number 7 has the old EPL logo, which is only changed for the 2007-2008 season onwards.

Just like the hom kit too, this jersey is the NIKE SPHERE DRY version of Nike's jersey.

Here's a picture of Ronaldo in this kit:

Manchester United 1993-1994 Home Jersey

This is another vintage jersey i have, the home shirt for the 1993-1994 season. This jersey is used during only the second season of English Premier League.

As usual for old Umbro Man Utd kits, the club crest is located inside a shield.

One unique thing about this jersey is that you can see the watermark of the Man Utd stadium, Old Trafford, on the jersey itself.

On the back of the jersey are also the watermark of the stadium.

And here's a pic of Roy Keane in this jersey:

Manchester United 2006-2007 Home Jersey

This is the jersey Manchester United used for only one season, which is also the first season Manchester United was under the sponsorship of AIG.

The club crest is put inside a white shield just like in the past, something that Man Utd had not done in a long time.

The collar and end of sleeve are white in colour on the outside and gold colour on the inside.

There are gold seams running down the jersey, plus the white collar and sleeve giving it a very retro look.

The initials "MUFC" can be seen at the bottom left of the wearer, while at the back bottom part, is the "NIKE SPHERE DRY" patch, indicating the type of fabric and design by Nike.

This is the jersey Manchester United finally win the league title after failing for the previous 3 years. Here's Ronaldo in action using the long sleeve version of the jersey:

Manchester United 1992-1993 Away Jersey

This is arguably one of Manchester United's most decorative jersey.

As you can see, the whole jersey is blue in colour, patterned with tigerskin-like lines. On the left side of the wearer, there is a large Manchester United crest printed in the same style too.

Unfortunately i cannot find any picture of the players in action using this kit, the only one i can find is this one:

If you do spot one, do tell me and i will edit this post!

Manchester United 1998-2000 Third Jersey

This is the third kit Manchester United used for the 1998-1999 and 1999-2000 season.

Nothing much about this jersey, this is about all you can see. The one thing extra is that the word "UMBRO" is at the bottom back of the jersey.

Here's Becks in the long sleeve version of this jersey:

Barcelona 2007-2008 Home Jersey

For your info, this is my first non Manchester United jersey. The reason i get it is because it is offered at a very cheap price from an online store, and also i believe that this jersey looks very classy and nice. Ok, i will continue on with my review.

Around the club crest there is an embroidery which shows "CAMP NOU" and "1957-2007", referring to their 50th anniversary using their stadium Camp Nou.

Instead of companies sponsoring the team and the team put the sponsor's logo on the shirt, Barcelona actually gave US$1.9 million per year to UNICEF and putting the logo there as a charity act.

The customary NikeFIT on recent Nike jerseys are there on the right side of the wearer.

On the other side, there's another patch also commemorating the 50th anniversary at CAMP NOU.

At the back of the shirt are the "HENRY 14" nameset.

Unlike English Premier League teams who have to use the name and number font set by the Football Association, Spanish League teams can choose their own font. Thus you can see the Barcelona crest at the bottom of the number.

Near the sleeve, there's a Catalonia flag, as Catalonia people are proud of their Catalan traditions and tend to disassociate themselves with Spain itself.

On the inside of the collar, there's the Barca motto reading "Més que un club ", which means "more than a club" in Spanish. This phrase can be seen at the Camp Nou seats too.

On the right sleeve there's the La Liga Patch, LFP stands for "Liga de Futbol Profesional".

And here's a picture of Barcelona playing against Manchester United at Camp Nou for the semi final match for UCL, which ended in a 0-0 draw, MU winning the second leg at Old Trafford, and booking them to the final, and finally winning the European Champions League:

Manchester United 2008 Champions League Final Jersey

This is the jersey which is used just for the Champions League Final 2008 in Moscow.

As you can see, this jersey is the exact same one they used for the normal season home jersey, with a couple of differences. The most notable one is the special embroidery between the club crest and jersey sponsor, which reads "FINAL MOSCOW 2008 21ST MAY-LUZHNIKI STADIUM".

And instead of the 2 league badges, the Starball is used, placed on the right sleeve of the wearer. This starball is also special, because a normal Champions League is only a ball with white background, but if you look closely on this one, there are smaller starballs inside the big ball. This is a special starball made just for the Champions League Final.

And as usual, a pic of our hero in this one-off jersey:

Manchester United 2007-2009 Home Jersey

This is the current home kit for Manchester United.

This is the second season Manchester United is sponsored by the American insurance company, AIG.

At the bottom front of the jersey, there's a patch that reads "The Red Devils" with the crest devil silhouette on the background on the left side of the wearer, while the normal Nike's NikeFit jerseys are embroided at the right side of wearer.

There is a stripe running through the top and bottom part of the back of the shirt. The top stripe have the devil's silhouette, while the bottom one have the word "MUFC" on it. A black line runs through the middle of the stripe.

For the coming 2008-2009 season, Manchester United will hold the right to wear the gold coloured league badge as they are the current champions. Other clubs will wear white coloured badges on the sleeves.

Here's a pic of Man Utd's Asian star Park Ji Sung in action:
