I don’t get all the hate for NB... I’ve liked them making our shirts and the move to the darker shade of red was genius.... personally I don’t want us going back to the lighter shade.

The away and 3rd kits are always a bit hit and miss but that’s what away kits are supposed to be isn’t it. Totally different to what we would normally wear - ie red!

Does anyone know the likely changes in squad numbers?

I seem to recall Alisson's getting the no.1 and AOC is getting Sturridge's no.15.

What about TAA, is he going to get the no.2?
Alisson and AOC's change of squad numbers has been confirmed:


I expect the others will remain the same otherwise the club would surely have said...

Those two numbers were free for next season. I don't think they'd take the #2 off Clyne while he's still here (you never know what can happen in the next month). Maybe one or two still decide to change (and do the refund for fans) when we sell a few more players.

Anybody got this season home shirt in the long sleeve option.

Been waiting for the L Champions League shirt to come in for ages now and may just bite the bullet and get the long sleeve version

Yeah, the club obviously don't count on him anymore. He's still on a 2-year loan at Besiktas and then next summer we'll sell him (when he'll have a year left on our deal). On the other hand, I don't think the club would use Grujic's #16 (maybe only in a special situation) if they have it as a possibility that he might return next summer to be part of our first team.

If it is the 2018/19 Klopp's cap that you are looking for (see link below), it's listed as out of stock from the store. I cannot find it anywhere else on eBay, Amazon, Sport Chek, or a few other online stores :-(. I'm looking for one as well.

Thank f*ck they changed our socks today, plain red. Obviously we told them that they're not only awful looking (they were already last season, but this season they took it to a new level, I don't know who had that bloody idea), but could create issues with the ref as taping needs to be the same colour as the socks for a good few years now, almost a decade. Created a bloody mess, some players looking like they have red socks, other in white. Don't know if they do it with the other two kits, but I don't care much about those. That huge white bit was a punch in the eye, now our home kit is gorgeous from top to bottom.

Hopefully they change their socks everyday ;-)

Thank you! I've always been a gear junkie and I wanted to post a similar thought, but didn't want it to sound petty. The white bottom socks made me absolutely crazy and looked ridiculous. Even if the club was set on having 2 color socks, White bottom matches no design principles in history. Just an awful look on every level imaginable. Glad to see they were all red today. Rinsola Babajide, on our LFC women's team, wears hers so low that it was only red anyway, looked so much better than the rest of the side.

Strange....I swear that I saw some players still wearing the socks with lots of whites, while some looked pinkish, as if the red dye came off and made the whitey bits pink.
That's because some players cut the red sock pretty high, leave their normal sock below (which is usually white) and then use tape to keep it nice and tight between the red and white. In a friendly it's more relaxed, it might happen in official games sometimes probably depending on the ref, but the main thing is that our sock is back to being plain red (of course, we don't mind a bit of white detail, but use it at the top of the sock, not at the bottom).

Back to the half-white socks last night. Not a fan.

Does anyone own the "Elite" jersey? I know it supposed to fit tighter, but how much tighter are we saying here?
