Worst football kits ever.: That would be: Football = soccer. Kits = team uniforms. You have got to see these. Did you see Hull City's (1992) tiger stripes? My eyes! My eyes!

Some of those are pretty abysmal. How they missed this one though is beyond me. Ladies and gentleman, I give you the fashion errr statement that is the infamous Villa Muller shirt.

Rowwwr. This is doomed to become the most image-heavy and slow-loading thread ever. Perhaps we should move back to links, and not images. But I can't help myself!

Ow squealy, I'd managed to repress that. I've been hunting for the Chelsea orange away kit, but all images have been removed from the internet to protect the innocent.

LOL! FB, you sod. Even so, the dog pic and this googly-eyed one are terribly funny. Hahahahahahahahahaha. C'mon, SF and bill, help me find one really bad one for Birmingham!

Were they making fun of Graeme Souness (Reds legend and current Blackburn Rovers manager) in that pic?

Wot's this? "Odd shirt this one, based on the German flag and worn for two matches in the 70s. Very popular with the Birmingham City fans." wtf?

Sorry, WC, but that one isn't tragic, not nearly bad enough to make up for FB's slur!

Mmmm, loved that german flag kit, despite the fact that they bombed our chippie. :-P Explanation for you wannabe scousers.

worldcup2002, Rather than Souness i think it is them dressed more as Harry Enfield Scouser characters. "DON'T TALKH TO ME LIKE DAT, OR I'LL BREAKH YER FRIGGIN' NECKH" See ; Brookside fans hold Scouse demo for another bizarre usage :-)

Ta, squealy and stuart. Now what is the origin of "Scouse" and "Scouser"? What do they mean?

posted by worldcup2002 at 11:19 AM on April 30

Scouse seems to be a shortened version of lobscouse, which is some sort of sailor's stew that I presume they ate in Liverpool. Of course, no one knows where that came from. This kind of half-assed answer is the reason why "Ask Dr. Samsonov" went off the air after two shows.

lobscouse: A sailor's stew made of meat, vegetables, and hardtack (a hard biscuit or bread made with only flour and water. Also called sea biscuit, sea bread, ship biscuit.) From dictionary.com:

scouse Scouse (skous), n. (Naut.) A sailor's dish. Bread scouse contains no meat; lobscouse contains meat, etc. See Lobscouse. --Ham. Nav. Encyc. Source: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, © 1996, 1998 MICRA, Inc.
Check out the translators at whoohoo.co.uk [WARNING: Popovers and popunders galore!] "Translate your English phrase, email or text message into a variety of different British dialects including Geordie, Cockney Rhyming Slang, Irish, Brummie, Scottish, Scouse, Posh and Ali G." "Good morning" translated in Scouse to "Awright" and, in Brummie, to "Bostin mornen." Awright!
