In the A-League’s 14-year history, we have come across some scintillating jerseys, but which five make the cut?

This is sure to divide opinion and raise some eyebrows, but hey, we either love a football kit or hate it.

Let’s get the ball rolling.

Newcastle Jets, 2007/08 season

The infamous gold home jersey. One that definitely resonates with those who support the Jets.

It saw the likes of captain Jade North and potent goal scorer Joel Griffiths represent the shirt in what turned out to be a historic year for the Newcastle side.

Griffiths collected the golden boot award with 12 goals before the team secured its maiden A-League title against the Central Coast Mariners in a 1-0 win at Allianz Stadium.

What makes it a cracker is that it is so unique when comparing it to kits worn by other teams during the league’s short history.

The Roar made up for their horrendous kit during the 2010/11 season by producing their black coloured away outfit with stripes across the shoulder and shorts. A very classy design from Puma.

It matched the beautiful style of football that Ange Postecoglou adopted when he coached Brisbane, which saw them claim back to back championships in 2010/11 and 2011/12.

Producing the same jersey for two years running showed that the template was a successful one as teams normally conjure up a different design every season.

Remember the Melbourne Heart? Now known as Melbourne City, the club constructed a classic and effective home strip six years ago.

The white stripes breaking up the predominately red colour on the front of the jersey and socks create a fine balance.

On the pitch however, the heart suffered 16 defeats in 27 matches as the side finished second last, so maybe it’s a jersey thrown away in the trash?

Yes I know, Melbourne again.

Keeping with the theme of the round collar shirt as well who would have thought?

This jersey can be associated with one of the best players to wear the Socceroos jersey in Tim Cahill.

The sky blue colour takes centre stage. The idea of placing the Nike tick centrally below the neck as a pose to the more traditional left or right side of the jersey works in it’s favour, especially with the other logos and sponsors displayed on the shirt.

Last but not least, a jersey from this season funny enough.

This jersey has received a lot of praise and it’s clear as day to see why.

Black and Gold. A deadly combination that the Wanderers have pulled off.

A great piece fashion, while keeping it so so simple. A very stylish jersey, which has not managed to get caught up in the overdoing nature of most football kits we see in the footballing world today.

It is the type of jersey you would buy purely because it looks so damn good. Regardless if you support them or not.

Which jersey do you view as the best we have come across in the A-League?
