With just days left until the start of the Premier League season, our very own artist Ted Carter has been continuing to amuse himself by deciding unilaterally what the kits of the divisions clubs should be look like, and he has allowed us to share these with you. The artist would like it to be remembered that he is colour-blind, and that you can see Part One of this mini-series here. For those of you that are concerned by such things, Mungo will return for another series on the thirtieth of August.

Why are Wigan sponsored by that odious fucker Morgan? Is he friends with Whelan. I bet he is. The arselicking twat.
Didn’t do the research for Reading. We’ve never had red and black hoops as an away kit, and never had the word ‘Reading’ as even part of any of our sponsors.
1982-83: Reading Chronicle, but just appeared as ‘Chronicle’.
1983-84: Radio 210
1990-92: HAT Painting
1992-99: Auto Trader
2008 on: Waitrose
You can probably discount 1983-92 as the team were mostly in the third or fourth tier for that period, except for two years in the lower half of division 2, and we were pretending to be Coventry at the time. Only ‘Chronicle’ appeared on a hooped shirt. The first time we competed at the upper levels of then-Division 1 and got to a play-off final (1994/5) was in the Auto Trader shirts.
I’d like to say that the away strip should be yellow with blue trim, as the most-commonly-used colour, but unfortunately that was mainly the era I’ve just said we should disregard! Red or salmon is the other major colour used, usually with yellow as the detail colour. In the Auto Trader era, again I’d have to go with 1994/5, this one, plain red with shadow hoops. Kit Classics indicates it came with red shorts.
