13 Worst Football Kits of All Time

Now, we're not saying that having to design a whole new kit (well actually two) every year or so isn't difficult. It must be incredibly hard to keep coming up with new ideas whilst trying to stay true to a particular home colour scheme. Having said that, there is absolutely no excuse for some of the catastrophes that have shown themselves in the past years! 

Here are some of the most shocking kits, ever:
