  During the 1983/84 season the FA somewhat relented to club pressure when it was decided that clubs could display sponsors logos on the front of their shirts in certain televised games as well as English competitions, However the size of the sponsors logo could not be more than 7cm in height, This presented a problem to Liverpool whose sponsors logo seen in image 2 was around 10cm, To overcome this obstacle Liverpool decided to order a new stock of shirts from Umbro with a new smaller CROWN PAINTS logo, This is seen in image 3 and as can be seen is quite a bit smaller than the original logo.

  This was then worn during some of the early part of the 1983-84 season, When it was then decided by Crown Paints and Liverpool that the logo on the front of the shirts was so small it just could not be seen on TV or by the fans, And the words could not be read by anyone watching, Crown Paints were worried they were not getting the best from the deal, To overcome this new obstacle the only choice left open to Liverpool and Crown Paints was to redesign their logo once more, One way around this was to write 'CROWN PAINTS' across one line of the shirt instead of two, Thus the letters could be a lot taller and the company name could then be read much easier by anyone at home watching TV.

  However as Liverpool had just taken delivery quite recently of a whole new stock of shirts with the small logo seen in image 3 there was not the funds to order and produce a complete new stock of shirts once more that season, To get around this the logo was printed onto a thin piece of similar red cloth, This was then stitched onto the front of the plain type of shirt seen in image 1, The end result was the classic one line CROWN PAINTS shirt seen here in image 4. It was first seen in the winter of 1983 and was used up until the shirt was changed in the summer of 1985.


  The shirt shown here is a number 9 Ian Rush players issue shirt from this era, This can be seen by the fully embroidered badges shown below, As you can see this issue of shirt has the CROWN PAINTS logo on one line as opposed to two which can be seen top. As you can also see the way in which the CROWN PAINTS logos are attached to the Liverpool shirts was extremely crude, It was literally another piece of material stitched right across the front of the shirt.

   How to distinguish a away shirt of a season 1981-82, from a shirt of a seasons 1982-83 & 1983-84, very difficultly.

  BEWARE: Once again do not be fooled by those sellers who claim that they are selling a match worn shirt because the badges are embroidered. Many replicas sold in the shops back in 1982 had both embroidered CROWN PAINTS logos and embroidered Liverbirds. A genuine player shirt should have embroidered badges, but also WORDED sizings on the neck label.

  I now not know have away replica shirt with small CROWN PAINTS logo, two lines or CROWN PAINTS logo, one line, used in season 1983-84.
