Another season, another shirt. White across the shoulders instead of blue tells it apart from the others. Still no badge.
The new design didn't get its first outing until October. Instead the blue and white collared version from 1976/77 appeared on the opening day against Aston Villa and subsequent games.
The new shirt was the first Adidas one to be readily available to buy as a replica.
Nothing new for the away colours this season. The red and white design was the usual first choice for a change of kit.
Umbro's strange design from the previous season was still hanging around though, and was worn at least once - again at West Ham, in an FA Cup tie.
This rare away shirt even has its own modern replica - even though it may have only ever been worn twice in competitive football.
