    Hi everyone. I am sure someone on here will know. Was there a specific 1974 shirt or was it one that carried over from previous years. My son was born in ‘74 and wanted to get him one. Thanks. Did we have one for the LC Final that year?

    Just realised it was ‘that’ Law goal that year. :)

    The LC Final had the M/cr coat of arms on the left chest. Normal kit had round badge central was only difference I think.

    looks like this was it. Before my time. What year did official replica kits become a thing?

    I got my first kit in 1977

    Umbro did it well then, it came in a box, thing it was orange with the umbro diamond and name in white

    Not like now, just thrown in a bag which you also have to pay for

    Have a look here

    http://www.historicalkits.co.uk/Manchester_City/Manchester_City.htm

    Links to kitbag and 3retro from that page, think you can get the shirt in the club shop too, note that the kitbag shirt is long sleeved and the 3retro is short sleeved.

    Deffo had the blue with red top socks in Derby match in ‘74, (‘73-‘74) . Unsure if they switched to sky socks at start of ‘74-‘75 season but I think they did. Peter Barnes played 3 games in ‘73-‘74 but I don’t remember him with the royal blue/red socks, only the sky blue.
