Manchester United's bizarre stunt in 1996

1 year ago

Manchester United pulled one of the most bizarre stunts in Premier League history by changing kit at half-time... here's a flashback to their grey day at Southampton

Twenty years ago Manchester United lost 3-1 to Southampton

Sir Alex Ferguson made his side change out of their grey shirts at half-time

United boss claimed his players couldn't see each other during first half

League leaders emerged for second half in changed blue-and-white strip


Full story here and lots of photos: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/footba ... z45qIHZIal

In case the younger fans, or older ones, didn't know!!

Cheers, daibo ....

Except it was in 1996...

Oh yes, the grey kits... I had a job in England in the summer of '96 and was considering buying that grey jersey long before as I supposed there would be tons of them at cut-price. Unfortunately, they were all sold-out at that point. At cut-price, of course.

Edited.

Apparently it really is more difficult to pick out grey in your peripheral vision, so there is something to this.
