2. Invisible Kit
It was 1996 and Manchester United played Southampton in the Premiership. United went 3-o down before half-time and their legendary manager Sir. Alex Ferguson wasn’t happy. He remarkably blamed their uniforms for negatively affecting their play. Usually ‘The Red Devils’ wore red jerseys with black or white shorts, but this time they had a drab grey away kit.
Ferguson forced his players to change their uniforms during the break. They managed to pull a goal back but still went on to lose. The manager ensured that his team never wore the grey uniform again because he believed that it affected the speed of eye muscle reactions. Actually he may have had a point, but excuses aside, his team was just rubbish against ‘The Saints.’ To the day, this is an iconic moment in league history.
