Liverpool have today announced a new purple away kit for the 2018/19 season.
Kits like this always seem to divide fans, but the general feeling with this one seems to be pretty negative.
Let’s be honest, once Salah and co. are running rings around opposition defences in it, we might start getting some pretty positive associations with it.
Away from home.

For the time being, however, it’s little surprise that everyone’s making the same joke about the colour, Ribena, and James Milner.
In case you’d forgotten, Milner professing his love for the purple juice drink went viral after the Champions League semi-final win over Roma.
Is the purple kit a tribute to our midfielder’s love for Ribena? We’ll never know for sure, but it’s nice to think so anyway.
Predictably, fans on Twitter have been all over it with the Ribena jokes this morning after the club officially announced the new away strip for the 2018/19 season…
James Milner will be happy with the Ribena theme! 😂 https://t.co/ordWtr4Ywd

Nice of the club to dedicate the away kit to James Milner's crippling Ribena addiction 💜💜💜 https://t.co/JfHfcX7C0q
