Manchester United Retro Football Scarf 1975-80 Away Shirt

Fans Favourite

This scarf is inspired by an all-time favourite amongst United fans, an away shirt worn between 1975-1980.

This admiral kit has become one of the most iconic kits in United's history. Several versions of this kit were produced, including a shirt with four stripes in 1975-76. This was supposedly due to a legal battle between Admiral and Adidas, down to the use of three stripes, which Adidas claimed to have trademarked. The legal battle was lengthy and a compromise was reached, with Admiral agreeing to pay a small annual fee for the use of the stripes. 

Another variation was introduced for the 1978-79 season which featured the centenary club badge. 

In this period, United gained a reputation for playing generally dull football under Dave Sexton, who was not popular with the fans. But they did reach an FA Cup Final in 1979 and finished league runners-up in 1980. Other highlights included the signings of Ray Wilkins, who established himself as one of Europe's finest midfielders, and Joe Jordan, who scored more than 50 goals in three years.
