What our Facebook fans think about these shirts:

“The best ever home shirt. Bulldog Bobby wasn’t a good idea for a mascot though.” Trevor Arthur

“A cracking kit, I did like the Admiral one before it as well. Great players as well, proper England team and probably not a Bentley between them.” Mark James

“Best ever England shirt.” – Steve Smith

“One of the best kits for England, and the players then are a lot more recognisable than the England players now. I could name more of them in a picture than the current England squad.” Philip Salkeld

“Think that pic of the line up in the red strip is before the France game in the 82 World Cup. The FA or Admiral didn’t know if they were allowed their logo on the shirt so didn’t put it on. Bryan Robson scored after about twenty seconds.” Alex Piper

    Admiral did a sweater of this design in blue. It was pretty bad material though.

  10. United!!!

    @9 it says there… Danny Thomas …yea, very short guy! LOL

  11. Rooney Is Soooo Ugly

    who is the 9 year old in the team photo , on the far right ?

  12. Rooney Is Soooo Ugly

    classic home kit . one of the best ever

    design doesn’t look as good in red

  13. Crunchie

    Would be great if at the next World Cup all the countries could wear their best all-time shirt as voted by the fan i.e. England ’82, Holland ’78, Argentina ’86, France’84, Germany ’90 etc. Really like this shirt. Infact there were a lot of nice shirts at this tournament: Germany, Poland, Scotland, Northern Ireland and New Zealand.

  14. Marvin The Paranoid Android

    Really good kits, arguably the best home kit England have ever had. (Although having said that, there are several other worthy candidates; England have had a lot of good kits over the years.)

    A modern remake of this is definitely overdue. I wonder if Admiral own the rights to an extent that a new version would have to be changed so much that it wouldn’t be similar enough to be worth it?

    Anyhow, copyright permitting, England should definitely have kits styled on these again.

  15. Roybot

    I loved these shirts and I was trying to track one down, and then came across the fact that admiral are releasing a retro range inspired by them.

    Decent enough kit. I agree that the Umbro 86 & 90 kits were the best ones to date.

  17. Vern Fonk

    I have the home shirt and the Don Revie admiral tracky top. Great shirts. The moody ones you can buy online are better than the originals.

    I liked the Bulldog Bobby mascot.

  18. Vladimir 'Charles' Brown

    Very fond memories of this shirt. Wish I could have one… are there any retro kit stores that have a replica? Anyone know?

  19. Tonesterwolf

    Must admit i preferred the Umbro efforts that followed these as worn in the 86 world cup, in fact the first England shirt i owned. A bit more classy and not so in your face!!

  20. SwfcAH

    love a similar colour scheme for the next England shirt, unfortunately it looks like its gonna be a boring white and navy nike templamte

  21. Augustus

    Time has been kind to this kit. I quite like it now, but the one before this with red and navy trim down the sleeves was better.

    Moving to Admiral was very controversial at the time, and I think I’m right in saying it was the first time red appeared on the kit except for the numbers. From memory I think Don Revie had his sticky fingers all over the deal but corruption in football is not rare, then or now.

  22. Charley Johnson

    too young to have but wish I could get one now instead of the crap nike shirt.
