In a bid to encourage more people to dig out their old shirts rather than fund the Glazer’s latest United shirt, RoM will be giving away old shirts for you to wear in place of the new jersey. What better day to launch this than the day United’s new kit is revealed in Chicago!

The first shirt on offer is our home strip from 96-98. This was the shirt Eric Cantona wore when he scored his brilliant goal against Sunderland and this was the last shirt he wore as a Manchester United player.

Question: How many appearances did Eric make in his last season for us?

To get your hands on this shirt, simply e-mail your name, full address and shirt size to republik_of_mancunia_competition@hotmail.co.uk. A condition of entering is you have to take a picture of yourself wearing the shirt and send it back to me to publish on the blog. Entries accepted from anywhere around the world.
