Allegedly we did the same for palace but in the 70’s they changed so they looked more like Barca.

Quote

In 1901, Henry Gillman, now General Manager of the Crystal Palace Company proposed forming a professional football team but this was rejected by the FA who frowned on the idea of the owners of the FA Cup final venue also owning a professional team. A later attempt by Dr WG Grace to set up a new football club collapsed in March 1905 and it fell to a new board of directors with the help of Edmund Goodman, who had five years experience with Aston Villa, to incorporate the Crystal Palace Football & Athletic Co Ltd. Although the Crystal Palace Company invested heavily in the new venture, they did not control the football club.

Trabzonspor always stood out to me for 2 things - the Villa connection with the colours and the fact they used to release about 7 kits every year.

Oh and the away goals loss.

The history of kits is quite interesting. I think our very first kit in like 1874 was chocolate brown and sky blue but when we reordered the same next year there was like a cock up at the tailors and they came back claret and blue and a legend was born
