  Since a season 1968-69 the design of an emblem of club has changed, it became more simple, embroidered Liverbird and under it L.F.C.. Home shirts of this design with a round collar and the embroidered emblem of club with some changes were used since a season 1968-69 on 1975-76. One of the main distinctions, this occurrence on a shirt of a trade mark of factory of manufacturing "UMBRO". The trade mark "UMBRO" was several variants. In home shirt, Liverpool players used how in home, as and in away matches.

  In season 1972-73, the first time there was UMBRO logo, factories producing player shirt, it has been embroidered. In first shirt with UMBRO logo in home match UEFA Cup Final 1st Leg versus Borussia Moenchengladbach (10.05.1973). In this design shirt with embroidered UMBRO logo Liverpool also played next two seasons, 1973-74 & 1974-75. But may be in first this was on Liverpool shirt, on goalkeeper shirt in 1971, to watch picture in right Ray Clemence in match FA Cup Final versus Arsenal (08.05.1971). What color the middle of a rhombus, in this photo or others, it is difficult to define. It is precisely possible to write one, that in matches UEFA Cup Final, May 1973 and Charity Shield (10.08.1974), was used home shirt with embroidered black-white-blue UMBRO logo.

            

  Home player shirt (big white embroidered written UMBRO logo) Short story about this shirt. Else some time we known what have this design home shirt and photos Liverpool players dress in this shirt. After we know what this design home shirt was used in season 1974-75.

  Now have interesting information.
  1 - In May 1974 (may be this photo made 20 April 1974), before FA Cup Final match was made team photo when on more Liverpool field players dress home player shirt (big white embroidered written UMBRO logo), photo in right. Was this presentation new home shirt or was simple prezentation team before FA Cup Final match.
  1 - In end January 2016, I to find on site eBay photos Liverpool weekly news publication "The Reds to go in Wembley", for May 1974. On cover (left image) we can to see in red circle Alec Lindsay and Steve Heighway. They in home player shirt (big white embroidered written UMBRO logo). Else one, I now know think in 20 April 1974, in home match at Anfield versus Everton, Liverpool field players played in home player shirt (big white embroidered written UMBRO logo).

  More about this design hone shirt with embroidered black-white-blue UMBRO logo & embroidered black-white-red UMBRO logo, read here.

  In left image, Phil Boersma in home shirt with embroidered black-white-blue UMBRO logo, in right image, Ray Clemence in home goalkeeper shirt with embroidered black-white-red UMBRO logo (now only this color photo I have with this Umbro logo).


  In season 1975-76 on Liverpool shirt was a Umbro logo of new design, white printed UMBRO logo. In first white printed UMBRO logo used in season 1973-74 in one match, on shirt as and shorts. In FA Cup Final match versus Newcastle United (04.05.1974).

  24th January 2014, I have e-mail from my friend Michael Yip (www.liverpoolkits.com), his written to me what have information what in end season 1974-75 in some matches (2-3), Liverpool played in home shirt with white printed UMBRO logo. Information was right. On this moment I to find some photos with home match Liverpool-Carlisle United (12.04.1975), when Ian Callaghan (photo left below) in home shirt with white printed UMBRO logo.

  In my head to go one idea, home shirt with white printed UMBRO logo was made for season 1974-75, but after beat in FA Cup Final 1974 match, was made new shirt with big white embroidered writer Umbro logo (only my version).

  Why I as think, if you visit on this my page,
here, you can to see, what home shirt with white printed UMBRO logo have two variants, Shirts different not only design size UMBRO logo (read below), but how I think, was made of different fabrics.

  If you have other information please contact us.

  Now have home shirt with white printed UMBRO logo, two variamts (below). ohly fofferent in UMBRO labels. For 1st UMBRO label, question not, this home shirt (white printed UMBRO logo) was made for season 1975-76. 2nd - 3rd UMBRO label, big question, shirt can made for season 1974-75 (this only my assume).

                


In Charity Shield (10.08.1974) match was used simple home shirt (photo in top left page, Emlyn Hughes H 1.1), in shirt not was special embroidery to this match. The special embroidery as was absent in matches Charity Shield 1971, 1974, 1979, 1980, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1992 & 1994. Liverpool also played in 60's Charity Shield matches, but and this matches used simple shirt, without special embroidery.

In Testimonial (29.04.1975) match was used simple home shirt (photos in top left page, Tommy Smith H 1.6).

  But the most important, that in one match the most part of players played in shirts of one design (with a Umbro logo) and one or several players played in shirts another of design (without a UMBRO logo).

 

  This UMBRO logos which was used on Liverpool shirts in seasons 1972-73 to 1975-76.

  Which matches in season 1974-75 Liverpool used home shirts without a UMBRO logo or home shirt with embroidered UMBRO logo or home shirt with white printed UMBRO logo or home shirt with big white printed written UMBRO logo, I not know, it is difficult to establish precisely as I have not many photos of this season, and video not better quality. It concerns also home shorts.

  But the most important, that in one match the most part of players played in shirts of one design (with a UMBRO logo) and one or several players played in shirts another of design (without a UMBRO logo).



  This fragment of photo with away Division One match versus Tottenham Hotspur (07.09.1974). Here Tommy Smith in home shirt with embroidered black-white-blue UMBRO logo, but Phil Boersma in home shirt with big white printed written UMBRO logo.

  How to distinguish a shirt of a season 1968-69, from a shirt of a season 1975-76, very difficultly. Certainly, were for this time of change in design of a collar and cuffs, labels UMBRO, and certainly since a season 1972-73 it is various design of UMBRO logo.
