I think we can all acknowledge that Liverpool’s kit choices reached their peak with the purple away number they unveiled this summer. Unfortunately, no one told the powers that be that they should quit while they were still ahead. A few weeks later, we got the ‘throwback” third kit — if you need to be told what a throwback kit is meant to be evoking, it’s not a throwback kit — which is terrible and unnecessarily reminiscent of dishwater.
And now, just in time for the holiday season, Liverpool have unveiled a new series of retro shirts that look almost right.
With the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Dominic Solanke, and Xherdan Shaqiri modelling the new offerings, you can almost ignore the really weird collars that most of the kits seem to be sporting. Almost.
