thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com's global team of editors select their favourite jerseys of the past season. Read on to find out our choices plus your chance to win a shirt from the Kitbag range


And so another football season draws to a close, but the images will live long in the memory once the dust settles on 2010-11.

Those memories will be stirred in future years whenever we see the iconic moments of the season - and the iconic strips too.

Here, Goal.com counts down the top 10 that caught our eye this term...

10) Blackpool (Home)

The Tangerines brought a much-needed breath of fresh air to the top flight. Ian Holloway's team were all about brightness in their ultimately doomed first Premier League campaign. Blackpool played with a fearless style, they had a straight talking manager, optimistic fans and best of all was their shirts. Blackpool's were the brightest in the league which made perfect sense.

9) Penarol (Libertadores)

Uruguay's Penarol opted for a minimalist approach for their Copa Libertadores kit. Minus a sponsor, their famed black and yellow stripes stood out all the more in this simple but hugely stylish shirt. See the shirt here.

8) Sanfrecce Hiroshima (Home)

J.League meets Jimi Hendrix was the approach from Sanfrecce Hiroshima in their psychedelic Paul Klee inspired shirt. Nobody knows if the Purple Haze was designed to hypnotize the opposition, but one thing is for sure, it has quickly become a collector's item.


7) Marseille (Third Kit)

Marseille have always been a club that have done things their own way. To celebrate their return to the Champions League as Ligue 1 winners the French side paid tribute to their heritage of blooding young African players as well as the multicultural city of Marseille with this colourful third kit.


6) PSV (Away)

PSV and sponsor Philips are synonymous with each other. For their away effort the Eredivisie club plumped for a daring black design with a dint of red and white blocks in honour of the Noord-Brabant region which they represent.

 

5) Inter (Away)

Replacing Jose Mourinho and repeating the treble is no easy feat. In order to do so, Inter injected some bite into their away shirt with Biscione the Italian serpent featuring on the sleeves and down the side of the kit. The shirt was first seen in the 2010 Scudetto celebrations and featured during the 2011 Coppa Italia winning campaign.

4) Man City (Third Kit)

Perhaps City were trying to convince Carlos Tevez he was playing for River Plate in this eye catching shirt. No doubt influenced by the Argentinian club the white with a red and black sash design will go in history as City won a trophy for the first time since 1976.

3) Flamengo (Away)

One of Brazil's greatest clubs went back in time to recreate an 80s classic. After failing to land a new sponsor the South American giants opted for a clean approach complete with fetching black, red and white sleeves for their away shirt. With Ronaldinho now onboard perhaps they can recreate their best form on the pitch too. See the shirt here.

2) Valencia (Japan Tribute)

March's devastating Japanese earthquake and tsunami had a massive effect on the global game. Tributes were held around the world and none were more fitting than Valencia's offering for their clash with Sevilla in the aftermath of the disaster. They had the names of their players translated into Japanese in a fitting gesture which was widely applauded. See the shirt here.


1) Kaiserslautern (Fritz Walter Special)

German legend Fritz Walter was remembered by Kaiserslautern on what would have been his 90th birthday. One club man Walter was honoured with a retro shirt which his old club wore against Borussia Monchengladbach last October. Fans got two shirts for the price of one as when you turned it inside out there was a replica of the 1954 West German jersey which Walter captained to glory. The shirt (right) had the message: "The key to success is friendship and the will to give everything for each other."
