Liverpool's 5 Worst Ever Away Kits

Next0 / 5

Liverpool FC's home kits, steeped in history and pride, follow a simple formula: make it red. And it works. But when given the license to break away from that iconic red, the minds behind Liverpool's away strips haven't always done themselves proud. 


Which is the very worst in Liverpool history? Read on to find out.

5. 2013 - 2014: The 90s Flashback

What is going on at the bottom of that shirt? Arrows? Flames? Feathers? Perhaps even the good people of Warrior Sports don't know. This away kit comes in at number one for sheer nonsensicalness.


If they absolutely had to revert to random 90s-era patterns, they should at least have committed to it. Instead, it seems Warrior's designers realised their mistake halfway up the shirt and just stopped. And as if the arrow-flames weren't bad enough, in this photo at least, it seems Suarez's sleeves are inexplicably a different shade to the rest of his shirt. Unforgivable.


Liverpool may have finished second in this year's thrilling season but their away kit surely finished last.

4. 1905 - 1906: The Altar Boy

Granted, this away kit was designed over a century ago but that still doesn't make it right.


No, these men hadn't forgotten to remove their towels after being to the barber for their pre-photo shave. Neither were they members of a choir.


That strange shoulder mat thing on their shirts isn't a joke; it's a yoke and it formed part of Liverpool's second oldest away kit – a kit that saw them crowned First Division champions in 1906.

3. 1995 - 1996: The Duvet Cover

Great for playing a game of four-sqaure on your torso but not so great at striking fear into the enemies' hearts, this Liverpool away kit leaves a lot to be desired.


But perhaps this kit's most worrying feature is that it looks as if the designers initially forgot about the much-loved Carlsberg logo and at the last second, cut it out within a white rectangle and simply slapped it on to the middle of the shirt. Poor effort.

2. 1999 - 2000: The Green Monster

It was 1999 and Y2K was coming, bringing with it the end of the world as we knew it. So you can't really blame the designers at Reebok for thinking 'stuff it, let's just make the whole thing green... with three-quarter sleeves'.


Not even the shirt's broken, diagonal stripe can save Robbie Fowler from looking like he's stolen a Leprechaun's poncho.


It doesn't seem to have hindered him though, as we see him in action here. Then again, perhaps the defenders simply couldn't differentiate between Fowler and the pitch.

1. 1984 - 1985: Yellow There!

Yellow appears perhaps a little too often throughout the history of Liverpool away kits. This, however, is the most yellow of them all.


No doubt on a sunny day or under floodlights this kit would have been fairly distracting for opposition players. Add to that the undersized shorts of the era, displayed here by Sammy Lee, and the distraction only becomes greater.


As displeasing to the eye as it may be, this kit was part of a highly successful, treble-winning campaign for Liverpool. And it's making a comeback this upcoming season. Good omen? Liverpool supporters will hope so.
