Presenting pretend Liverpool fan/minority shareholder and NBA supermercenary LeBron James’ new Nike ‘9 Low Liverpool’ basketball trainers – but can you spot the ever-so-subtle error (aside from them being hideous) in the various Liverpool-themed livery?

Here’s a closer look…

Spotted it? Granted, it ain’t exactly a yawning mistake but the devil, as they say, is in the detail.

Give up?

Cast your eyes sole-wards if you will. You will see Liverpool’s 18 league titles, each clearly represented by a Premier League trophy. Number of Premier League trophies won by Liverpool? None.

Oopsy daisy.

    They’ve also got what looks like a griffon on the back instead of the liver bird, which I assume is for copyright reasons or as nike aren’t the kit manufacturer

    other than the reds have won something and lbj disappears when it matters most…

  3. Pete says:

    The douchiness of Lebron makes Luis Suarez look like the most humble and sensible man on the planet.

  4. Gaudi says:

    Danny De Vito’s Chelsea themed underpants.
    Wide open space at the back
    Big skidmark up the middle.

  5. Mr Sensible says:

    What’s with green being used with Liverpool since their crest was changed a while back?

    I’m sure back in the 70’s and 80’s the only colours ever used were red, white and maybe a bit of yellow.

    Also, does any Liverpool fan actually like their current crest, I know you’ve had it for a few good years now but I always thought their old one was great and their current one a pointless OTT disaster.

  6. JM says:

    The Reds have won the league 18 times, regardless whether or not is was called the “Premier League”, a win is a win.

    “…the devil, as [they] say, is in the detail.”

    I love irony. Especially when you Brits get at it.

  8. Mr. Chopper says:

    Dems looking like summat I seen in Asia.

    Big fan of Christmas myself

  10. danny says:

    maybe that liverbeast on the back is warriors new logo for us. eep.

  11. packy says:

    The Griffin is because LeBron typically puts a Lion on his shoes, and the Griffin seems to be a hybrid of a Liver Bird and LeBron’s Lion. Regardless, LeBron is a massive twat.

  12. Jarren says:

    I thought they were chewy sweets to be honest

  13. Mr. Sparkle says:

    Who cares, he`s a bloody bellend anyway.

  14. KJ says:

    @JM well yeah, but I think you are missing the point. It was a completely different looking trophy to the Premier League trophy (which is the one on the shoe).

  15. Mr. Sparkle says:

    Fucking ugly shoes one way or another.

    For the record, Lebron James or not Suarez is still a fucking cunting idiot.

  16. big mean bunny says:

    I think its one prem trophy for everytime Liverpool fans have said “next year we will win the league.”

  17. Khairo says:

    @big mean bunny
    That needs another extra pair!
