From Hot! to What? We rate the best and worst shirts of 2021/22
Inter Milan and Barcelona may be among Europe's elite but when it comes to kit design they are lagging way behind the likes of Hull City and Atletico Mineiro.
Here at Planet Sport we do love a good kit launch, from the cinematic masterpieces to the simple 'oh yeah, this is our kit this year'.
Here are the best, worst and 'who are TeamViewer' jerseys we've seen so far.
Good: Liverpool (Away)
What a way to start off this list. Well done Liverpool.
Gorgeous. Classy. Elegant. Absolutely stunning. Instant classic. Enough said.
Bad: Barcelona (Home)
Who is this? Like seriously, who is this? Because this isn't the Barcelona look.
It's the Barcelona colours and it's Barcelona players in the kit. But that's not a Barcelona-looking shirt.
Good: Forward Maddison FC (Beach/ Club)
The USL League One team have become known for their unique alternate kits, and this year is no different.
For this season, they have come up with a fully reversible jersey that they have dubbed the Beach/Club kit. One side is a flamboyant pink that is beach ready, the other is a slick black with a hot pink flamingo pattern, ready for a night out.
Bad: Inter (Home)
A new-look badge that has no identity. Black and blue snakeskin shirt. Are they mad?
No grazie, Inter! No grazie!
Good: Atletico Mineiro (2021 special)
Atletico Mineiro wanted a design that celebrated the team's 113 years of existence and turned to their supporters for help, resulting in this beauty.
This is, quite honestly, the best kit we have ever witnessed. We are not exaggerating.
Atlético Mineiro organised a competition with their supporters to design the club's new kit.— Football Tweet (@Football__Tweet) July 14, 2021

Bad: Greuther Furth (Home)
Why are there weird, poorly drawn green bats all over this?
Neue @Bundesliga_DE Saison, neues @PUMA Trikot, neues Hofmann Personal Hauptsponsor-Logo: wir sind gerüstet!— SPVGG GREUTHER FÜRTH (@kleeblattfuerth) July 2, 2021
Unsere Hauptsponsorin Ingrid Hofmann hat heute unserer Mannschaft das neue Bundesliga-Heimtrikot offiziell überreicht. 🙏#kleeblatthttps://t.co/Lox05hUQNZ
Good: Southampton (Home & third)
Saints' new kit supplier, Hummel, decided to go with a DNA theme, taking aspects of the club's history and what makes them Southampton to come up with these kits.
Hummel has become shirt manufacturer for a number of clubs this season and what they are putting out this year is straight out of top bins.
Bad: Chelsea (Home)
There's a reason why Chelsea didn't wear this in the Champions League final, and it's not just because they had already suffered an FA Cup final defeat in it.
Our new @nikefootball Home Kit... 🤤🔥— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) May 13, 2021
Inspired by the '60s Op-Art movement made famous in London 🎨 The yellow trim, coupled with a more vibrant blue, injects a youthful feel that we can't get enough of. 👊 pic.twitter.com/znNIRc5NtP
Good: Hull City (Away)
Unbelievably nice kit from the Tigers. Whoever designed this deserves the biggest of raises.
Only the Atletico Mineiro shirt has had as much universal love as Hull have had for this cracking piece of kit.
Bad: Preston North End (Away)
Good and bad: Manchester United (Home)
Paying homage to their past, you get real prime George Best vibes from this one. Manchester United have done right.
We just can't get past their new TeamViewer sponsor. It's putting us right off. It's not even that big or bad-looking. It just doesn't seem right on it. Sharp would look, er, far sharper.
