Memorable Football Kits: Liverpool 1989-1991

Liverpool home kit, 1989-1991

When I was a lad Liverpool ruled the world, as did nasty flecked-print on football shirts. I suspect this classy little number was the inspiration for the bird-poo kit, so for that reason alone it deserves a mention in my sporadic recollection of classic kits.

If memory serves this was the strip the Reds wore when they last won the league, so maybe it (and it’s even nicer grey/red sister) holds a special place in many a Scouser’s heart. Or maybe not.

  1. We, Liverpool, had some shockers. The one that replaced this was the worst though with 3 thick stripes underneath each arm.

    I remember being in a club when this first came out and my mate was wearing it. Jan Molby was sitting near us and he asked if that was the new kit, he didn’t look that impressed.

    I only wear adidas trainers because I’m nostalgic for the early 80’s but there football kits are pretty poor.

  5. What a beauty! This was my first Liverpool kit and you can imagine the pride for an eleven year old lad wearing the jersey which won us the league too many years ago!
    Bring us back to those days!

  6. I loved the grey kit from this age! Its an omen we’re greying up this season and result against city indicates good fortune and good football is on our side. It can onl mean we’re winning the title again!
