Let's talk about...

THIS 1991 CHELSEA THIRD KIT:

The yellow kit! The egregious red sponsor! The blue lines and patterns that look like a damn screensaver!

The website OneFootball had a different take. They ranked it the 6th worst Chelsea kit of all time, adding:

“I want whoever designed this jersey re-hired as a consultant for Chelsea. And then immediately fired. The material is gross, the yellow is ridiculous and that weird stripe design? It’s a firm no from us.”

They are wrong. Fuck OneFootball. This jersey rules lol.

Overall, 1991 was a great year:


In addition to the yellow third kit, Chelsea also wore a red and white diamond away kit, and a blue home kit, of course.

In related news, this is our new favorite book cover:

BLUE IS THE COLLAR
THE BOOK OF CHELSEA KITS AND MEMORIES

"This is a must-have book for Chelsea fans of all ages. An integral part of fan culture, football kits are a reflection of the times. Changes in design, colour, logos, badges—all supporters have their own favourites. 'Blue Is The Collar' takes fans on a journey from the very first Eton Blue strip in 1905 to the famous Royal blue jerseys of today, featuring some wonderfully colourful away shirts along the way."

Too much blue, white, red and yellow? Here are a few stunning black and white photos from Stamford Bridge in 1991:

ONE MORE YELLOW THING:

This yellow "Champion Sports Size 5 EXTREME All Weather" soccer ball, which was designed by Balenciaga and retails for $315.

OK, RANDOM LINKS TO REASONABLY PRICED GRAILS?

Random links to reasonably priced grails! A bold 1990s Umbro Chelsea Drill Top (M). A nice Umbro Chelsea adjustable hat (OS). A goofy non-Umbro AUTOGLASS-era Chelsea bootleg kit (L) without any patches for some reason.
