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

T 1.1 - Third shirt with home shorts & home socks.
* * - Unknown me now which kits used in this matches,
but I assume used away or third shirt.
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 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.

(31.01.1988), Liverpool used third shirts with short sleeve and with sawed on shirt player
numbers. Only Steve Nicol<,played in this match in third shirt with printed number №
The reason on which he played to this shirt, most
likely is banal.
How to distinguish a away shirt of a seasons 1985-86 & 1986-87, from a third
shirt of a season 1987-88, very difficultly, only for design player number.
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.

double-lined version as shown above. Once again, no long sleeve replicas were ever
released by Adidas. I not to see replica shirts with long sleeve in season 1987-88.
