The latest chapter in Ipswich Town's kit fiasco rather summed up a season of inconsistency from a mix-and-match team.

The Blues sold plenty of their 'Barcelona' away shirts last summer, only to realise that it clashes with most of their opponents' home strips.

It's been worn just twice so far, while a hastily assembled off-the-peg orange kit third kit (not available to buy) got its umpteenth outing of the campaign in the Tractor Boys' defeat at Cardiff on Saturday.

Then, just as Bartosz Bialkowski was walking to his goal following the coin toss, referee Andrew Madley said he had to change his shirt because both keepers were wearing all green. As a result, he ended up having to quickly whip off his gloves and pull on a yellow top. Yes, a Town player in yellow and green. You couldn't make it up.
