In a season 1968-99 the design home shirt has changed. Liverpool used home shirt
eight seasons, 1968-69 to 1975-76 (time of use shirt is probably inexact). Liverpool used
home shirt how in all home, as and in more away matches.
|| 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
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.
|| As it is written on a
site of the collector of Liverpool F.C. shirts Mr. Colin Wright, the shirt № 12 Jimmy
Case (red printed UMBRO logo) was used in a season 1975-76.
Have information, what this red printed UMBRO logo, which was
paint red felt-tip pen. For what purposes, most likely, that it is not visible this white
printed UMBRO logo on a shirt.
May be Liverpool in season 1975-76 used home shirt without a UMBRO logo, I
now not know.
In UEFA Cup Final (23.04.1976 & 19.05.1976) matches was used simple home shirt
(photo in top left page, Kevin Keegan H 1.1), in shirt not was special embroidery to this
match. 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).
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).
This UMBRO logos which was used on Liverpool shirts in
seasons 1972-73 to 1975-76.
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).
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.
