  * * - Unknown me now which kits used in this matches, but I assume used away or third shirt.

  Apart from the new away kit for the 1987-88 season changing colour from yellow to silver grey it really only showed only a few subtle changes from the previous season. The Adidas stripes on the shirt now extended all the way down the sleeve and the collar was changed to a curious wrap-over design seen for the first time on Liverpool shirts, Although the away shirt is a plain grey colour there is a very faint stripe that runs through the shirt in almost the same colour, Within the stripes of the shirt the Liver bird and the Adidas badge are repeated and can only be seen on close inspection.

  The major change on this shirt being the badge design that was also changed, with the Liver bird now placed in a new shield design with the words Liverpool Football Club written below, This is the same badge that would be used for a number of years after this shirt, The badges stayed an embossed material with the players shirts badges being stitched, This embossed material was extremely prone to fading and colour change after washing the shirt, With this shirt and other liverpool shirt its very common to see a rather unsightly pink stain to the embossed badges.

  Although by now we thought that Crown Paints had finally decided on the best way to display their logo on the front of the shirt as the logo was not seen again on only the one line as had been the case on previous shirts, But Crown Paints obviously decided that the "White" coloured logo could still be difficult to see on TV and whilst the matches are being played, (although this seems obvious) So after an initial period the shirt changed once more, This time the sponsors logo was changed to a more visible red colour, This shirt can be seen on this website also.

  This was last year deal with firm Crown Paints (1982-88), with next season Liverpool will played in shirt with Candy logo (1988-92).

  In 1988 the agreement with U.K. firm Crown Paints has ended six-year and Liverpool has signed three-year the agreement with Italy firm Candy. The agreement with Candy will end in a season 1991-92.
