It's a matter of opinion, alright

Any self-confessed football nerd knows the importance of a decent kit. To be honest, if you don't take time out of your day to examine every crux of a variety of random club's strips, nitpicking them to the finest detail and discussing your thoughts about them with your mates, are you even a fan of the beautiful game at all? Probably not. You probably are a lot cooler than us if you don't do that, though, but thankfully this isn't a popularity contest.

From the famous white and purple jersey of Real Madrid in the late 90's, sponsored by German kitchen supply company 'Teka', to the florescent green of Barcelona's away strip in 06, you know, the one Ronaldinho did so many cool things in. From Bayern Munich's red and white striped 'Opel' shirt in 00-01, to the ever-recognisable navy and red combo donned by cool & the gang Paris Saint-Germain, some kits just stick in the memory.

Away from foreign shores, though, and to the English top flight, where since the rebranded Premier League came to fruition in 1992, there have been an array of top class kits on show. Too many, in truth, but after much deliberation we've managed to compile a list containing ten of the best.

Of course, this is all a matter of a opinion, so don't get too angry with us if you disagree with our choices, but as always we welcome your thoughts. It's @FootyAccums on Twitter, but you already knew that.

10. Coventry, Home 96-97

Number 10 in this list is Coventry's home strip of the 96-97 campaign. Though slightly different their traditional all-sky blue and white, this kit, partnered with a deep navy is incredibly easy on the eye. Le Coq Sportif haven't aged well as a brand, with Manchester City's kits of the mid-noughties firmly left behind in the Joey Barton era, for good reason. They did well with this one though. The West Midlanders have since reverted back to sky blue and white, with navy never to be seen again, fun while it lasted. Yes that is Peter Ndlovu.

Coventry

9. West Ham, Home 99-01

Arguably West Ham's most iconic ever kit, this strip absolutely stunk of Paolo Di Canio. It was the kit the Italian wore when he scored one of the Premier League's best ever goals against Wimbledon in 2000, and epitomised everything great about the east Londoners. The collar, the sponsor, the white shorts and sky blue tip of the sock - it's all just quality. Heritage stuff.

Di Canio

8. Leeds United, Home 02-03

Lee Bowyer, Alan Smith, Mark Viduka, Ian Hart, all names you instantly think of when you see this Leeds United kit from '02. The simplicity of this strip is what makes it so cool; Real Madrid-esque. Elegant. Subtle, yet effective. Nike got it oh so right with this one. It is hands down one of Leeds' most iconic kits, possibly even the most recognisable to the common fan. The all-yellow away kit was a bit of alright, too. The Strongbow sponsor is something that will never die for as long as Leeds are playing football, even if they haven't sponsored the club for over a decade. Goes so well with that Premier League number font doesn't it, and look at Lee's Predator's there too, next to one of the best footballs ever made, beautiful. Nostalgia to the highest degree.

Bowyer

7. Southampton, Home 01-03

For years, Southampton went rogue and made their own kits. A questionable decision which would be laughed at in the modern game, but back then it worked for the south coast side. In their first season at new stadium St Mary's, this beautiful kit worn by the club between 2001-2003 will go down in history as Southampton's nicest kit (in our humble opinion). James Beattie did the business in this kit, while big Claus Lundekvam tirelessly patrolled the defence, smashing anything in his path. Good times.

Dodd

6. Wolves, Away 18-19

These days, kits can often come across too boring, or designers can try so hard creating something that will be remembered that it just ends up being a complete shit show. Wolves however have got it bang on with this one. One of the classiest strips to feature in the Premier League in the last 20 years, it just looks so clean and neat, especially when you've got handsome bastards like Ruben Neves wearing it. Wolves have been a breath of fresh air this season, playing some tremendous football on the pitch and have looked incredibly cool while doing it. Home kit is also very, very smart; massive shame about the ridiculously ugly sponsor, but we'll look past it.

Wolves (a)

5. Arsenal, Away 03-04

Yellow and blue is one of the best combinations going when it comes to football kits, that is a fact. Over the years, Southampton have combined the two colours perfectly, creating a series of phenomenal away strips, as have Leeds United. Birmingham City's away kit this season is great, check it out if you've got a minute. Back to Arsenal though and to this sublime kit from the early-noughties. Everything about it screams nostalgia - the O2 sponsor, the old school Premier League numbering, Thierry Henry doing what he does, finessing everything into the bottom corner in those godly early edition Nike Mercurial Vapors. The Gunners created a fantastic remake of this iconic kit in 13-14, but this one.. this one was pure beauty.

Henry

4. Newcastle, Home 95-96

Black and white stripes, check. Round-neck collar, check. The word Adidas just written above the club crest without a logo, check. Newcastle Brown Ale logo splattered across the front, check. Alan Shearer volleying one home from 30 yards so f*cking hard the net nearly breaks, check. This iconic strip epitomised Newcastle. 95% of fans would agree that this is the club's best ever shirt, unbelievable stuff.

Shearer

3. Liverpool, Home 95-96

Rumour has it, that if you look up the word 'retro' in the dictionary, this picture of a young John Barnes wearing a pristine pair of white Puma King's, dribbling an old school, perfectly pumped Mitre football in this magnificent Liverpool shirt will appear. The white V-neck partners the vibrant famous red, while the club's former long-serving sponsor, Carlsberg, takes pride of place on the middle of the jersey. The white tipped socks with Adidas' famous three red stripes circling just below the knee cap compliments the stripes on the side of the shorts so well. Absolute quality from start to finish. The yellow and green third kit from that season also deserves a mention, that was well nice.

L'Pool

2. Manchester Unitd, Away 93-94

While Manchester United have had some extremely cool home shirts over the years, it's one particular away kit that's made it into our list here. The Red Devils' second strip from the 1993-94 campaign partnered black and orange beautifully. A simple concept executed to perfection, Umbro did well with this one. The famous 'Sharp' logo on the front was iconic for United back in the day, with the likes of Eric Cantona and Roy Keane the first players that spring to mind when looking at this kit. United weren't half good in it, too, winning both the Premier League and the FA Cup whilst finishing runners-up in the League Cup that season. Show offs.

United Cantona

1. Tottenham, Home 97-99

So here it is: number one, top dog. Tottenham's iconic kit from the late 90's, sponsored by the ever-faithful Holsten with their old school logo and oversized collar is effortless on the eye. The white compliments the navy perfectly; the three stripes trickling down the side of the shorts, the retro-ness (is that a word?) of it all is just bloody brilliant. When Mark Corrigan said: "Darren Anderton, figure of ridicule due to repeated injuries", this is the kit we all instantly think of (apologies to all you non-Peep Show lovers, both of you). David Ginola wouldn't be seen in any old tat, so Spurs had to be on the metal here, and my god they were. 11/10.
