Liverpool Unveil New Purple Third Kit – Bad, But Not Nearly As Bad As We Hoped It’d Be! (Video)

By Chris Wright

Liverpool have finally gotten round to unveiling their new Warrior third kit for 2012/13 and, while it’s really quite bad, it’s not nearly as horrendous as we all collectively hoped it was going to be.

Steven Gerrard - Liverpool Third Kit 2012/13

It’s more ‘unusual’ than it is ‘absolute pigging eyesore’, which is a bit of a let down once you consider who fantastically shite the various waves of mock-ups we’ve been treated to over the last few months…

It’s still awful, but then that was kind of the point all along. Saying it’s just a third strip, Warrior had been riding a fair old wave of buzz off the back of the will it be?/won’t it be? rumours for yonks. Will the furore help them shift a few more units? That remains to be seen as, after all, the finished model is still pretty terrible.

What say you Pies fans? Love it/like it/don’t hate it/burn it with fire?*

    It’s not as hideous as the mock-up, but I’m not a fan. That orange collar spoils it. Oh yes, the official LFC site description for that colour is “Nightshade” :/

  2. C says:

    The tribals scream white trash.

  3. plops says:

    It’s almost as if Liverpool want people to laugh at them! Especially considering the laughable season they’ve just had.

  4. Fernando says:

    The fact the real one is less awful than the horrendous mock-up makes it worse. If you’re gonna go bad, go big! (cf Everton’s pink away kit).

    This kit looks like it’s being serious (and I like the nightshade & orange), but the tribal pattern suggests it’s a bit of a joke. Just not *enough* of a joke to be truly shiteously amazing.

  5. usrick says:

    Much less bad than the mock-ups. This “nightshade” is actually tolerable, so long as the side doesn’t actually wear it for a game or anything.

  6. Milkchew says:

    Does it warrant actually being a third kit considering our second kit is black and this one is virtually black?

  7. tenblackalps says:

    For all its worth, i.e the bashing of the kit mock ups by everyone (including me) over the last couple months, it is actually a pretty OK shirt. Wouldn’t be too fussed as they will only wear it a handful of times

  8. Toz says:

    Would have been better if the purple was the colour of Fiorentina.

  9. Anonymous says:

    To be fair the “tribal” aspect is meant to be the Shankly gates, not random Mauri insignia.

  10. Marquette Jer says:

    Grape Jelly.

  11. redman5772 says:

    clearly not the best looking kit but the so called tribal patterns on the arms are taken from the shankly gates abit of class from warrior

  12. Peter says:

    Compared to what we thought it would be, not bad. Compared to anything else, burn it, burn it with hot fire!!! That said, I wouldn’t hate it so much if it wasn’t for those tribal tats on the sleeves. Bur ^ Milkchew has a point, the 2nd strip is already black, so whats the point?

  13. jon says:

    For a rugby shirt, it’s really quite nice

  14. D says:

    This kit was never going to be liked. After they stupidly thought that the really crappy mockup was going to be a genuine kit… dicks!
