You serious? The English champs jersey is terrible, if only because the print has nothing to do with England.

Hey, it's pretty cool that Holland and Luxembourg have the same flag, let's use it as well!

Lol, you just annoyed a whole bunch of Scots and Welsh! If they did separate champs' jerseys for England, Scotland and Wales the jerseys would probably ALL be way better than the British one though.

I agree with Pisti, Movistar and Leopard/Radioshack 2012 are making some of the absolute worst national champs jerseys known to man.

Some of my recent favourites:

It's me who doesn't remember very well. There was a jersey one year, where the colours weren't in the right order, but now I can't remember which one :(

Agreed. (although its British Champ, not English);)

Its time there was a re-think as the jersey really has no British identity whatsoever. Although historically, our track and field athletes etc have worn the same jersey (no idea why).

(much like the German pre-Radioshack, I didn't know you could make a bad Norway jersey until Katyusha proved me wrong)

When I mentioned it many people said that it has a strong history in British sports etc. That might be true, but they should improve it somehow. Maybe not make the lines horizontal. At least the Aussie jersey doesn't look like a different country's flag... (or maybe Brazil?! still...).

EDIT: This is one of the best I think. They did a terrible job of it afterwards at Leopard/RSNT...
