Can anyone tell me when the thing with home/away kits really came to be a regular thing as I seem to remember teams playing in their colours home and away unless there was a clash of colours, then one team changed into white but someone is telling me there's always been different away kits which I strongly disagree with Um

I strongly disagree too.

This might amuse you for a few minutes (might be what Reg is up to these days(???)): http://hullcitykits.co.uk/kit-archive/
This collects first team kits on a page: http://historicalkits.co.uk/Hull_City/Hul l_City.htm
Or perhaps this: http://www.oldfootballshirts.com/en/teams /h/hull-city/old-hull-city-football-shirt s-t30.html

We've had loads of blue kits.

I like the third kit, mainly because they obviously haven't realised it's in the Hull City Council colours.

Red and black stripes, that's all I am saying.

Actually, it's not all I am saying.

Agree with Psycho, it's a relatively new phenomena. White strips a plentry unless you were Leeds or Millwall, or Real Madrid I suppose. Man City did the diagonal strip in the 70s I think as a departure from their red n black. Interesting that Man U played in blue for the European Cup final (Benfica in red of course).

The commercial end of it probably only really started when replica kits became the must have for the tiddlywinks, at a bargain £49.99 a throw, only to be redundant 9 months later.

Third kits are a joke. What, teams play two games on the same day now? That shit started with the United original yellow n green halves, and ended up with puffs pink for City last year, fookin disgraceful event that.

Red n black stripes. That's all I am saying.

Man U played the European Cup Final in blue as in those days for European Cup games the home team had to change and they were drawn out first and were therefore the home team. When they played in Benfica three years previously in the game which made Europe aware of George Best they were the team that played in red and Benfica changed.
Liked City's red and black away kit. A few teams used it as no teams had those colours as a home kit.

Before all the replica kit shenanigans historically Notts County as founder nembers and Preston as the first league champions had the right not to change kits in the event of a clash. Only ever recall seeing an instance of it once. I wasn't aware of the dispensation at the time but remember seeing Notts County playing at Newcastle in the FACup and Newcastle were playing in a plain kit. Don't know what colour it was as it was very early seventies so saw it on a black and whiteTV.

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.

Was working in Leeds at the time and went to this game. Scroll down a bit and it gives a good example of a kit clash debacle.

You change...No,you change...

A sign of the times was the tannoy announcenents asking Leeds fans to remember on the way out that it wasn't their fans fault. My main concern was pubs shut at 10.30 in those days.
Memorable for Danny Blanchflower, who was commentating on TV, declaring "Here come Standard Liege, most of whose names are foreign to me."

I always thought it was Preston and Reading who had that right. 

Now then...

Reading never had that right, it canecabout because Reading was in the supposed royal county of Berkshire. People now say it was a myth about Preston and Notts County or anything relating to it has disappeared over time.

Arsenal at one time always wore their change kit against Nottinghham Forest As a mark of their thanks for Forest donating a kit when they were still Dial Square.
