Liverpool have unveiled their new home kit for season 2012/13, their first with US sports manufacturer Warrior.
The kit features a redesigned club badge, which reverts to a a simple liverbird with L.F.C beneath it, a throwback to the seventies.
The Hillsborough memorial flames now feature on the neckline alongside ’96?.
Here’s a selection of comments in our forums…
Warrior has always pushed the envelope a bit with their other sports jerseys (hockey, lacrosse), and I was worried that they’d go too far with LFC jerseys… but this has a really solid, classic look.
Don’t know about you guys, but I love it. Great kit design, hope the away and 3rd strips are good too.
The goalie kit looks very old school. The material on the kits looks like a heavy duty rugby kit material. Impressed with reverting back to a liverbird.
Love the design. Nice and simple, no funny stuff. The yellow Liverbird looks classy.
Hope the second and third kits will be just as classy.
’96’ on the back is a great touch.
As the kit was unveiled at midnight the official LFC website temporarily crashed and the kit immediately became the number one worldwide trending topic on Twitter – showing Warrior the strength of the LFC brand.
Meanwhile, Man United‘s new home kit has been labelled as looking like a ‘tea towel’ by their own fans.
