New 08/09 Liverpool Away Shirt Revealed

Liverpool’s new away shirt for the 2008/2009 season will definitely be gray. In March, EPL Talk shared a leaked picture of the new Liverpool away shirt, but now – thanks to our friends at Football Shirts – we have distinctive proof. Here’s the most recent leaked picture of what will be Liverpool’s 08/09 away shirt:

As you can see, the shirt is designed by Adidas and features a red trim (not orange as shown in the previously leaked picture). What’s bizarre however is that Liverpool has decided to go with gray for the shirt. Gray is hardly inspiring and we all know what happened when Liverpool’s arch enemies Manchester United wore gray against Southampton many years ago.

  2. Shaz says:

    You are a bloody fool. This is not our away kit. Geal real fools!

  3. Paul says:

    Nobody wins anything in grey? Short memories – perhaps Liverpool’s greatest football was played in the era of Barnes and Beardsley (and Aldridge) and what colour was our away shirt? Oh yes, it was grey……..

  4. G Man says:

    Ha ha ha!

    Its hung on a market stand!! Isn’t it just Pepe’s keeper shirt faded in the sun…..?!?!!

  5. weller says:

    Is that GrAy as in Andy Gray or GrEy the colour.

    If you can’t even spell the colour mate don’t bother writing a post.

    Oh and the strip is rank by the way. Can’t see too many reds splashing out there hard earned on that one.

  6. Wouldn’t want too many reds buying it anyway.

    A petition has been started on the issue of boycotting sales of the new kit.

    The petition reads

    To: The Liverpool Football Club Board, and Potential Financial Backers of Tom Hicks

    We, the loyal supporters of Liverpool Football Club, have had enough of the boardroom saga for control of our club. We have staged protests and we have made banners, but the time has now come to take our efforts to the next level.

    As we were made aware by the club this week, Adidas and Liverpool plan to unveil the new 2008/2010 kit next Friday, April 25, 2008. The undersigned of this petition have agreed to boycott this item, and refuse to purchase it until Tom Hicks and George Gillett are out of our club. We understand that the loss of potential millions of pounds will hurt the club in the short-run, but it is also true that this will hurt the current owners in the only place that matters to them – their wallets. We will always support our team, but until Tom Hicks and George Gillett are out of club, we will not purchase this item.

    We refuse to accept the role of being a money-maker for Tom Hicks and George Gillett’s entertainment businesses. We refuse to accept the debt placed on our club despite promises to the contrary. We refuse to accept the owners’ ineptitude and incompetence regarding our new stadium. We refuse to accept the spin coming from Tom Hicks’ PR department. We refuse to accept the disgraceful public image these two have given our club in the global press. And lastly, we refuse to accept Tom Hicks and George Gillett as custodians of our storied, and beloved club.

    Let’s be honest, this kit is not very appealing at all!!

    Weller, do you really think you are in any position to be judging someone’s spelling?

  8. The Gaffer says:


    Both gray and grey are correct. Look it up in a dictionary.

  9. ss says:

    That is fckn disgusting!!! Lets hope this report is a load of crap cos I thought the home strip was poor, this is an abomonation!!

  10. wanderer_abroad says:

    At least it mirrors the grey situation (and weather) at Liverpool these days.

  11. FLETCH says:

    Pretty grim isn’t it?

    Haven’t bought a shirt for years though. Total waste of money, but that’s just horrible.

  12. Simon says:

    Love this kit. Is almost identical to the ‘Candy’ emblazoned shirt we wore at the end of the 80s and have happy memories of Barnes, Beardsley, Nicol, McMahon etc doing their thing on the way to number 18.

  13. AFC 4 LYF says:

    that is minging where’s the bright colours, u wanna stand out not “crouch” in the dark

  14. jake says:
