The WORST Liverpool Kits of our time?
In light of the big debate as to whether Fulham’s new away kit is one of the worse the Premier League has ever seen, I have taken the time out to assess the worst Liverpool kits of our time.
There’s something unsettling about a multi-national sports manufacturer managing to botch the simple task of designing a football shirt. However, whilst Liverpool have had some decent kits over the years, some of the shirts Liverpool fans have been cursed with would have been more at home in an avant-garde fashion show for Vivienne Westwood. However, we haven’t got all day, and so here are arguably the top five worst Liverpool shirts…
5. 1981-82 3rd strip, Umbro
Perhaps this pinstriped number has a sense of wistfulness about it for some Liverpool fans. They did, after all, win Division 1 and the League Cup the season this shirt was worn. Further, the legendary Bill Shankly tragically died of a heart attack at the age of 67 at the start of the 1981/82 season.
However, nostalgia aside, this shirt looks more like a school PE kit than a professional football team’s jersey. The shimmering, shiny material looks cheap, and that shade of yellow is wrong on many levels. Shame on you Umbro.
