Liverpool have revealed their impressive new kit ahead of the 2019/20 season, with positive reviews from supporters the order of the day.
The new strip was officially unveiled on Thursday morning, which pays homage to legendary former manager Bob Paisley OBE, who oversaw such huge success between 1974 and 1983.
Sir Bob would have celebrated his 100th birthday this year, so the kit is a tribute to one of the most important figures in Reds history:

Paisley’s signature is printed onto the inside of the neck of the shirt and the design is the same as the 1982/83 strip that saw Liverpool win the First Division title.
Here’s how supporters reacted to the kit on social media.
There was generally overriding positivity from fans….

I really, *really* like about 80% of this kit but don’t understand why the pinstripe stops. Makes it look a bit like a panel they’ve just stuck on. The goalkeeper kit is ??? though https://t.co/LlgxHiTphW

“Keeper kit is brilliant”
– Mohamed Yousry on Facebook.
When I grow up I want to look as good as Alisson in that new kit.

There were a few who weren’t wholly convinced, though, or felt slightly old…
Not 100% taken by the two different reds on the front but sure it'll look great in real life https://t.co/C64COTP5Pg

“The new home shirt looks like they pressed on my red striped tea towel on the front.” – Maria on the forums.
“I think I would love the new one if it had that V-neck. Total class look. The neck on this new shirt looks unfinished to me.”
– Neukolln on the forums.
