Episode 30: Goalkeeper kits

Published: 21 October 2020. Special guests: Rich Johnson ( and Jay ( Duration: 1h 53m.

Goalkeepers. They're a merry bunch of 'characters,' aren't they? Well you'd think so, judging by some of the brightly coloured kits they've worn down the years. But it wasn't always like that...

On this episode, Rich, Jay and I take a look at the history of goalkeeper kit design and wonder whether it's all actually been in vain. Two of us are somewhat apathetic about the notion of 'special kits for goalkeepers' and the other is still undecided. So why are goalkeeper kits such an important part of every new kit launch these days?

As we try to work out just how much we like goalkeeper kits, Rich crowbars in as many long-forgotten 80's pop culture references as possible (again), Jay contemplates the inner peace that comes from maintaining a zen garden, while I do the decent thing and read out your feedback and lots of Kit News. Hey, it's what I do.

A crib sheet, I hear you cry? Why of course - it's here. Enjoy...
