Kit colours can be a bit of a minefield.
You wouldn’t want to wear red to a Spurs game, or sport white at the Nou Camp. Getting your footballing colours mixed up is a big no-no.
But what would happen if, in the words of the great rapper Kenzie, we flip reversed it? Cover your eyes or read on if you dare.
How do you say ‘absolute sacrilege’ in Spanish?
Would Madrid fans wave blue and red hankies to show their disapproval at getting dispatched by Barcelona again?
So many questions, so few answers.
Man United/Man City
Is it wrong of us to quite like City’s kit in United’s colours?
United look terrible in sky blue which is reassuring for both sets of supporters.
The Sky Blue Devils versus The Reds. Can’t see that catching on.
Would Spurs have won the Premier League by now if they played in red? Probably not.
Would Arsenal Fan TV exist if they played in white? Almost certainly.
Harry Kane’s worn both colours… just saying.
AC Milan/Inter Milan
They share a stadium. They’ve shared plenty of players down the years.
So it’s no surprise that you can’t really tell the difference when you swap Inter and AC’s colours.
Fabio Borini is distinctly average whatever kit colour you put him in.
‘Come on you Bhoys in blue’ doesn’t really have the same ring to it.
We’re sure the Old Firm derby would still go off, but the fireworks would just be a different colour.
Plus, blue doesn’t really suit Scott Brown.
Boca Juniors/River Plate
Diego Maradona, Juan Roman Riquelme and Carlos Tevez. Just three players to wear the famous red and white no.10 shirt of Boca.
On the other side you’ve got Pablo Aimar and Ariel Ortega wearing River’s famous blue and yellow no.10 shirt.
Feel weird yet?
