Back in March I posted these pictures of what looked like the new Liverpool away shirt, looking at further pictures today it looks like the photos were genuine.
The club will officially launch the shirt on Thursday and today the web is buzzing with photos showing Liverpool players wearing the shirt. The one below shows Liverpool’s Dutch Master Dirk Kuyt wearing the new away jersey. The popular site www.footballshirtculture.com is showing off the pictures of Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Dirk Kuyt in the new shirt. I must admit I do like the shirt, the stripes remind me of the classic shirt from 1984.
The new away shirt launch comes as many Liverpool supporters are calling for a boycott of the club’s official merchandise. Quite honestly I really do not know how I feel about the whole boycott thing but there is a lot of chatter that Adidas and Standard Chartered are getting nervous. They would really get nervous if Stevie leaves us, last year the club was showing Xabi Alonso in the black away shirt and then he left us after many fans bought the shirt with his name and number on it.
