Long live 'The Temptations' ...
I may love The Temptations' music but I am not about to give in to one (er..temptation) when it comes to buying shirts these days...times are bad, so you have to be mindful when deciding to buy or not to buy..

It is then that I proudly announced that in my recent 2 weeks trip in UK, I only spend some of my British Sterling notes to buy 3 shirts.. They are :

1) England current away shirt by Umbro. A nice, clean red top, made in China and all. A real snip at GBP 4.49. That works out to about RM 24 in my country's currency. Now that's what I call a bargain. BTW, in Malaysia at the Studio R sports shop in Sunway Pyramid, this very shirt is tagged at RM 249.

2) Leeds United FC current home shirt featuring its main man, Jermaine Beckford's name & number. On sale at the club shop at GBP 20, I added the name & number for some additional Pounds. May we see Leeds in the premierships again someday. That's a nice statue of Leeds legend, Billy Bremner outside the club shop.

3) York City FC current home shirt by Nike. This is an actual shirt worn previously by its former player, Jimmy Beadle (now at Whitby Town FC). Note the signature on the number at the back. Infos came straight from the club shop's manager. Note of thanks to my Garmin sat-nav for guiding me to this club in the city of York, not far from Leeds.

Sheffield Wednesday home shirt from 1997. Nice collar work from Puma. Des Walker was one of the Owls' most loyal servant, played many times for England too. An all around hard working defender, that's Des!

Kop's 'God' white away shirt from 1998/99

The away shirt from the 98/99 season worn by the likes of Fowler, Owen, Matteo, Riedle etc. Number 9 is worn by of coz' probably the greatest living striker of the Reds squad...Robbie Fowler.

Simple V neck design from Reebok, and nice combination of Red & White to make this one of my faves of Liverpool's away shirts.
