  In this home shirt (big UMBRO logo) Liverpool first played in

  In a season 1976-77 the design home shirt has changed. Liverpool used home shirt two seasons, 1976-77 & 1977-78. Liverpool used home shirt how in all home, as and in more away matches. In season 1977-78, Liverpool used with home shirt different kits:
  Home shorts and home socks
  Second home shorts and home socks

  In 1976 the home kit changed slightly with a V-neck replacing the collar and the embellishments on the kit becoming yellow. For some reason yellow was a very popular colour in football kits in the late 1970s. Almost all scarves at the time included a yellow stripe, irrespective of the club colours. Although it has also been said that the yellow appeared to commemorate the winning of the European Cup.

  This standard design of a home shirt, Liverpool used it with some changes seven seasons with 1976 on 1982. In 1978 logo Umbro has changed Umbro logo size some small, In 1979 on shirts has appeared big letter HITACHI, in 1980 small letter HITACHI.


  This image with home match Division One versus Tottenham Hotspur (02.09.1978), show Steve Heighway (small UMBRO logo) and Graeme Souness (big UMBRO logo) in different shirts in one match. Why Graeme Souness has put on this shirt, success or for other season, can be and in some other matches, shirts of old design - with big UMBRO logo have been used. This was and in seasons 1978-79, 1979-80 & 1980-81, may be & 1981-82.

  In season 1977-78, Liverpool used home shirt with special embroidery, for match League Cup Final (18.03.1978) & for match European Cup Final (10.05.1978).

  In League Cup Final Replay (22.03.1978) match was used simple home shirt (photo in top left page, Ray Kennedy H 1.2), in shirt not was special embroidery to this match. The special embroidery as was absent in matches League Cup Final 1981, 1982, 1983 & 1984.

Second home shorts (embroidered yellow club emblem & Umbro logo), Liverpool will used with 1978-79 on 1981-82. With season 1977-78 on home shorts have club emblem.

   How to distinguish a home shirt of a season 1976-77, from a home shirt of a season 1977-78, very difficultly, I not know how.

  This yellow stamp, text and Umbro logo which have on home shirt, which are on a shirt in a bottom, on the right. This stamp only black, have on away shirt. Main other, not all player shirts have this stamp, why as, I now not know. This stamp only black color, I to see on home shirt in season 1970-71 (on FA Cup Final shirt).

  Home shirt seasons 1976-77 & 1977-78 was made of fabric nylon. as and was made of fabric bri-nelon.

  Funny moment: In home match Division One versus Manchester United (25.02.1978), after atack on United gate, at Emlyn shorts on the right side have torn. On a photo on the right, you see the moment of disguise of shorts. Emlin Hughes is helped with it by Ronnie Moran. As was in football!

  According to my observations on the widely available (and highly priced) replica shirts, the Liverbird on the replicas can either be felt embossed or embroidered. But the UMBRO logo and letters on the replica shirts I have seen are felt embossed. And only on a players shirt you can find it beautifully embroidered.



  All player shirts must have the Umbro logo and Liverbird fully embroidered into the shirt. However, there is a mix of official replicas either with felt-velveteen Umbro motif and Liverbird, or embroidered ones.



  Player's number on backside is a piece of machine-stitched cloth.

  Note that Liverpool FC did not release any replicas shirts prior to season 1978-1979.
