Liverpool released their home kit for next season on Thursday morning, with the latest effort from New Balance heralding a return for the collar.
The Reds’ home kit for 2018/19 has a smart and minimalistic look, with white trim and logos throughout.
For the most part, fans were happy with the effort…

Look at van Dijk in the deep new Red.
'Christ, Virgil, you look awesome, terrifying. You look 7ft tall.'

“Fully expect Moreno to have the collar popped whenever he’s in this jersey” – Bri10 on the forums.
And some just love it!

For a section of supporters, the collar was divisive…
Not a massive fan of the one button collar, other than that looks good! pic.twitter.com/KjObwqN7eL

I love the dark shade of red (my fav kind of red) on Liverpool's 18/19 home kit. However, I have never liked the ideal of having collars on jerseys. Also, the white line on the shoulder also feels unnecessary.

“Like everybody else the collar is a mistake. Looks like a pyjama top. Don’t they do any market research ?” – walterwhyte052 on the forums.
…and, of course, you can never please everybody…
I’m not buying that new Liverpool shirt ??

“There’s something that makes it look cheap. Really loved this season’s, I wish we could have kept a similar vibe.” – Sim on the forums.
…but most importantly, many fans are focusing that this could be the kit the Reds lift significant silverware in!
“I quite like it. I’m not totally sure on the collar though but I feel it could be one of those things that I just get used to. This could be our title winning kit! No this will be our title winning kit!” – Chris on the forums.
* The new kit is available to pre-order from the official Liverpool FC store, here.
