Eternal Magpies style  By Classic Football Shirt

It is Wednesday, so it is time for a new appointment with the most beautiful shirts in the history of football, realized in collaboration with Classic Football Shirts, the greatest retailer of football shirts in the world.

In 1995 the European Court of Justice creates a revolution in football with two unprecedented sentences. Now the European clubs can sign an unrestricted number of foreign player (if they Europeans). The players, by their side, are now free to move at the end of a contract. Meanwhile, England is ready to watch one of its beautiful story… even if without the happy ending.

"Remembered fondly on Tyneside as one of Newcastle United's greatest ever shirts, the home and away shirts from the 1995-96 season bring back great memories but heartache too for the Toon Army. The entertainers that we're comprised of Toon legends such as Les Ferdinand, David Ginola, Peter Beardsley, Philippe Albert and the Colombian maverick Faustino Asprilla pushed Manchester United to the wire for the title that season before finishing in second place. Manager Kevin Keegan would have loved it if they beat them. 

The home shirt was also worn in that famous 4-3 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield in which Stan Collymore snatched a last minute winner. It will also be remembered as the Alan Shearer homecoming shirt, big AL went on to become Newcastle United's all-time top goalscorer. Made by adidas, the classic style with grandad colour and iconic Newcastle Brown Ale sponsor can still be seen proudly worn around St James Park today".
