Fans want to tear their eyes out looking at Huddersfield’s third kit

The Terriers' black and red affair has to be one of the least saucy kits the Premier League has ever seen

Sometimes we wish football was still in black and white.

Especially when we sit down for a lovely bit of mid-week football and see Huddersfield in their third kit.

Maybe they haven’t been on TV that much or maybe we have been too occupied with David Wagner’s brilliant beard to notice this atrocity before.

Who thought that would look good?

And it’s clear that everyone watching Chelsea play Huddersfield were of the same opinion when they laid eyes on the red and black number.

It must have been the jersey that the designers rejected.

But no, not only have the Terriers been wearing this kit at away games all season, but it’s not even the first year they have plumped for this design.

Truly terrible.

Firstly there is not a single colour which is linked to the club, no sign of white or blue anywhere on the kit.

When you accept that it’s a red kit and that is fine, you suddenly see the front of it and are welcomed into a whole new world of horrors.

There are thick black stripes blazed across the chest and midriff with a radio static style fuzz along either edge.

Think Dennis the Menace meets football shirts.

I guess it doesn’t matter if they are playing in a horrible kit as long as they get results right?

Well the third kit is not helping on that front, Huddersfield have already equalled the Premier League record of failing to score in 13 away games this season.

To be fair, it really doesn’t matter to the fans what they wear – a point at Chelsea and the Terriers secure their Premier League status for another season.

And what an achievement that would be.
