Liverpool Launches New Third Shirt For 2008/2009 Season

liverpool third shirt Liverpool Launches New Third Shirt For 2008/2009 SeasonNo, Steven Gerrard isn’t wearing a goalkeeper’s jersey in the picture. It’s Liverpool’s third strip for the 2008/2009 season, which was just officially unveiled by the club.

Designed by Adidas and sponsored by Carlsberg, the new third strip will be worn in select Champions League matches. The shirt features a black collar, white trim and aqua green shirt color.

Voted the second worst design of the 08/09 Premier League shirts, the new shirt will be available as of August 14th but is available for pre-order now.

Last season, Liverpool wore their attractive black shirt for European matches, but this new green design has to go down in the history books as one of the worst Liverpool shirts ever.

With the release of Liverpool’s third shirt, the club has now unveiled all three kits for the 2008/2009 season. These include the gray away shirt and red home shirt, which features the unique red checkered design inside the shirt that’s inspired by the flags of the Kop.

What do you think of the new shirt design? Click the comments link below and let us know.

    The shirt will be used a third kit also so most probably used on the opening day at Sunderland and a couple of other occasions during PL season. It will be worn in away CL matches.

    Its not that bad. Obviously the writer is a ManU or Chelksi fan.
    The Chelski luminous yellowy thing they wore last season was one of the worst shirts in memory.
    Liverpool have played in green before, in the early 90′s the did have the absolutley disgusting Adidas kits with the three thick stripes under the arms. Now that was ugly. This is much better in comparision.

  3. Craig says:

    I am afraud that this is, for me, quite possibly the WORST kit we have hgad for a VERY long time.

    What were Adidas thinking, the players hated the collar on the last home kit and this green is putrid. Bring back the Black top, that was awesome.

    Why do we seem to be swapping designs with Chelsea. Come on Adidas, get some originality going (Chelsea’s new away strip is now black)

  4. roders says:

    The colour isnt actually that bad-certainly not worse than the mustard yellow kits of the past, but what totally lets it down is the bloody awful collar…i mean what were they thinking? for a start it looks out of place, and secondly its black and doesn’t compliment the green at all…i bet it was designed by a chelsea or man u fan….
