All this talk of Liverpool kit unveilings throws our minds back to a beautiful day on the Melwood training ground in 1996 when rocking horse people ate marshmallow pies and Reebok had Steve McManaman, Rob Jones, Stan Collymore and Jason McAteer dress up as The Beatles to plug Liverpool’s new beige away strip…


Stevie McManamacartney and Stango Starr are into it; George Jones and John McAteer? Not so much.

Indeed, the look on McAteer’s face is screaming: “Who signed me up for this sh*t?”
