Liverpool Unveil New 2011/12 Third Strip – It’s White And Blue! (Photos)

Adidas has just this very minute (quite literally!) released the first batch of photos of the new third strip that Liverpool will be wearing throughout the 2011/12 season and, as you have probably gathered, it’s both white…and blue…

For what it’s worth, we like it – though the cyan blue trim is sure to raise more than a few eyebrows on Merseyside.

Apparently the colourway is a nod to the club’s original Blackburn-esque home strips at the tail-end of the 19th century, long before Shanks waded in and turned the whole shebang completely red back in 1964.

What, pray tell, do all the Kopites out there make of all that then?

Fancy bagging yourself one? The kit is available for a cool £50 (£40 if you can squeeze into a child’s size) from Liverpool’s official online store.

    ugly. kits not too bad though.

  2. owen says:

    love it, although I may buy it from a certain chain store owned by a certain newcastle owner to save myself a few quid.

  3. theredflag says:

    I like it, especially the socks.

  4. Rich says:

    blue’s way too bright for me

  5. angry red says:

    burn it, its city blue not navy which was the colour of the shorts 120 years ago.

  6. buster says:

    I’m a L’pool fan, but this is an ugly, ugly kit! Thank God we had the red and especially the black (away) that was released in May. I just hope we’ll never play in this one.

  7. redhed17 says:

    It’s not Everton blue, but it shouldn’t be blue at all. :-(

    You’d think that Adidas would have wanted to make some money before the contract passed to Warrior. I can’t see many people buying this. It will sell because it’s Liverpool, but not in as many numbers as if it was another colour imho.

    With the two stripes it looks more like a Man City away kit.

  8. dfg says:

    the away kit is better. i dont know who in their right mind would pick this over the away kit

  9. KingEric7 says:

    Has Stevie G been having fisticuffs again? Looks like he’s sporting quite a shiner there. Also, why would someone choose Dirk Kuyt to model ANYTHING… EVER..?

  10. dc says:

    Adidas’s compression shirt and hammer pant combo has baffled me since they introduced it around the World Cup. Do they honestly believe it will improve a player’s performance? Do they think it looks good? Do they have their head up their asses ALL THE TIME? no wonder the france players didn’t want to play for their country– and why they switched to nike asap after their debacle.

  11. Pooky says:

    I like the socks!!!

  12. lordrt says:

    Kit looks more suited for Chelsea rather than Liverpool, but I think its better than MU’s

  13. kkate says:

    do i like it … not sure
    will i buy it … most probably
    now for the tough decision on who to get on the back???
    Carroll, kuyt, agger or meireles

  14. Manolo Garnix says:

    Obviously the sponsor had some ideas about the colours, at this point they could have even added green to it. I hate it when sponsors want their colours on the away or third shirt, but as it is liverpool, I don’t care much.

  15. Fernando says:

    I’m thinking “Allez l’OM”, which, as a Liverpool fan, is a shame. Good thing there’s no European competition this season, and fewer opportunities to field this one.

  16. Linek says:

    The shorts look a little like the Real Madrid’s old ones.

  17. martin says:

    Liverpool Fans Outrage at new kit colour!
    “I’m not buying it” said one upset Liverpudlian.

    Yeah, we know you won’t be.

  18. Chris says:

    @kkate – Wouldn’t get Meireles just yet. Not until the summer window closes at least…

  19. Gav says:


  20. C says:

    Eww. Just… Eww!
    So wrong on so many levels.

  21. Markell says:

    Everyone wants to be City these days!!!

  22. fergusonA lanjiau says:

    very veru ugly! i will not buy even free for i also dont want!

  23. DJ says:

    Getting Dirk Kuyt as a model is like asking Brian Blessed to work in a library.

  24. TravisKOP says:

    as a kopite i rather like it, even though its blue. I’d buy that kit for sure

  25. nickooo says:

    Not a bad shirt.

    How gay does stevie g look.

  26. Lady B says:

    Hideous :/ I mean, bright blue? Really?
    I for one will certainly NOT be buying one!
    Thank goodness for the awesomenessity of the away kit!

  27. C says:

    I just saw Blackadder, so I actually got the Blessed reference :)

  28. Lady B says:

    *sigh* at least Kuyt’s boots match the socks..

  29. karliieee says:
