From “good to see something different” to “worst kit ever” – Liverpool fans split on new away kit

Liverpool have unveiled their new purple away kit for the 2018/19 campaign, and as ever supporters are divided over it on social media.

The Reds will be fighting for success on the road in the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup in the upcoming season in an all-purple number.

A departure from last season’s white-and-green chequered shirt, this is more reminiscent of the third kit from 2012/13—albeit significantly more tasteful.

Liverpool can hope for better prospects than six years ago, however as Jurgen Klopp builds on last term’s fourth-placed league finish and defeat in the final of the Champions League.

Unsurprisingly, supporters have taken to social media to express their delight and disgust at the new kit in equal measure.


Many gave it a thumbs up and felt it was different from the norm…

“I love the new kit! Good to see some colour come into the kit, something different.”

Shauni Young on the forums.


Others simply can’t bear it, however…

“I’m in my 50s and old school. Home is red with white trim. Away is white with red trim. If that was good enough for Shanks it’s good enough for me.”

Michael Gibson on Facebook.

“Wtf…… NOT Liverpool colours. Just saved me £45 by not buying it for my son. He loves the orange top.”

David Linder on Facebook.

“Orange > Purple”.

A few were in the middle, with some admitting it has grown on them…

“I initially wasn’t a fan but looks good on the players.”

“Looks so much better on the players than I thought.”

“Not bad … it’s away kit so not as important but I don’t mind it.”
