Ranking every Championship home shirt for the 2019-20 season
The Championship is underway, meaning all 24 clubs have released their home shirts ahead of the 2019-20 season – but which is your favourite?
At Planet Football Towers, we individually ranked the 24 shirts ourselves, with each kit then given a point depending on where they came in each ranking – i.e. one point if it was ranked first, two if it was ranked second etc.
We then added up the scores, with the lowest score coming first, and the highest score coming out last. If we’ve still upset you, tweet us at @planetfutebol.
24. Nottingham Forest
Forest’s effort didn’t actually come bottom of anyone’s ranking, but it featured consistently low enough to record the worst average.
23. Sheffield Wednesday
It looks like it’s still loading, and not in a good way.
This picture doesn’t do justice to the brickwork effect on the shirt, which makes it much better than the reality.
Have you ever seen a more ‘Reading’ shirt?
Don’t really have anything interesting to say about this tbh, which sums it up.
19. Cardiff City
We may have marked this down because those jeans are all sorts of wrong.
18. Birmingham City
As high as ninth in one ranking, as low as 23rd in another.
17. Swansea City
Have you ever seen a more ‘Joma’ shirt?
Plain is not necessarily a bad thing, but this is maybe a bit bland. Like their manager.
15. Wigan Athletic
Green on a kit is meant to work. It doesn’t really here though. This was given one vote of 24th.
14. Leeds United
Leeds may have scrapped that horrendous new badge idea, so instead decided to just ruin their current one by making it far too busy.
13. Bristol City
Speaking of badge redesigned, Bristol City have nailed theirs.
Another polarising shirt, receiving votes of 20th and fourth.
11. Stoke City
Our resident Leeds supporter tried to get the Whites’ shirt higher than Stoke’s in a pathetic attempt to get one over on our editor. It didn’t work.
Most definitely a QPR shirt.
9. West Brom
Once you look past ‘Ideal Boilers’ this is good.
8. Charlton Athletic
Good shirt. Worthwhile sponsor. Nice one.
7. Preston North End
Looks a bit tight, which might be a problem for the dads.
Huski Chocolate feels like a classic sponsor from the 90s and we’re well into it.
5. Luton Town
Yes. Lots of yes.
4. Hull City
The ‘tigers, tigers, ra ra ra’ thing can stop but we’re still into this.
3. Huddersfield Town
Probably should have been marked down after the whole Paddy Power thing, but they’ve ended up with a banger nonetheless.
2. Blackburn Rovers
Blackburn were fourth last year with a much nicer shirt, which maybe doesn’t say a great deal about this season’s efforts.
1. Derby County
A perfect score with ones all round. Congrats,
Frank Lampard’s Derby County.
