  In a season 1985-86 the design away shirt has changed. Liverpool used away shirt three seasons, 1985-86, 1986-87 & 1987-88. In season 1987-88, this shirt was used how third shirt. In season 1985-86, Liverpool used with away shirt different kits:

  In 1985 Liverpool changed their kit manufacturer after a long association with Umbro. The new kit supplier was Adidas and the new kit was actually in use at the end of the 1984-85 season for the fateful Heysel European Cup Final. The first Adidas Liverpool kit was plain red with the three Adidas stripes in white on the shoulders and the sides of the shorts. The stripe effect also carried on through the V-neck of the shirt along with the end of the sleeves, Within the stripes of the shirt the Liver bird and the Adidas badge are repeated and can only be seen on close inspection, The club sponsors remained Crown Paints.

  In season 1985-86, Liverpool starter in shirt CROWN PAINTS on two lines, but after New Year, the design CROWN PAINTS logo was change, written on one line. Why was change sponsor logo, I not know (may be with problems with TV).

  In season 1986-87, Liverpool again starter in shirt CROWN PAINTS on two lines. Written on two lines so it became larger (and easier to see on a TV screen), The shirt badges upon the replica shirts are an embossed material where as they would have been fully stitched upon the players issue shirts, a trend that has been seen through the majority of Liverpool shirt since.

  In season 1986-87, Liverpool used away shirt with special embroidery, this was in match League Cup Final (05.04.1987).

  This fragment of photo witch away Division One match versus Watford (06.12.1986), you to see Liverpool players, one of riddles, why on back side shirts different design player numbers. Standard player number on Liverpool shirt for season 1986-87, this stitched cloth number on shirt, Paul Walsh ? 7. But how you to see, in this match some Liverpool players have felt numbers, Jim Beglin ? 3. This was not only in this match in season 1986-87.

  I think what in sale, home replica shirt with Crown Paints logo in one line, not was. One interesting, I have some photos with season 1986-87, when Liverpool Reserves played in away match versus Leicester City (26.08.1986), in home shirts with Crown Paints logo in one line (photo in left John Durnin). Was this only in one or more matches in Central League, I not know.

  In top left page, away player shirt long sleeve № 10 (CROWN PAINTS logo one line), may be this shirt was used Reserves team in some Central League matches in 1986-87.

  If will other information, I change page. Can in this away № 10 (CROWN PAINTS logo one line) shirt used in away Friendly matches versus Denmark Select XI (30.08.1986) and Motherwell (03.11.1986), why not.

  If who has information on it, shall be glad. Write to me contact us.

  How to distinguish a away shirt of a season 1985-86 from a away & third shirt of a seasons 1986-87 & 1987-88, very difficultly, only for design player number (below).

  Once again there were two different types of sponsorship logos worn by the players; a double-lined version (shown above) and a single-lined version. The general consensus amongst collectors is that the single-lined sponsored version is slightly rarer; however I only seek one of the designs as the two shirts are otherwise identical. Genuine match worn shirts feature an embroidered Adidas badge (with two registered ® trademarks) and an embroidered Liverbird. No long sleeve replicas were ever released. If you cannot distinguish a player shirt from a replica or a semifinished item, consult to Michael Yip (
