  The 1989/90 season has stuck with Liverpool fans worldwide for longer than any associated with the club would ever have imagined at the time. As the team celebrated lifting the League title, little did we know that this would be the last time that Liverpool Football Club could ever be classified the greatest team in England.

  The kit changed from the 1989-90 season, although again fundamentally the new Adidas kit showed relatively slight changes, with the collar style and trim remaining the same on the new shirt. However, advances in technology meant it was now easy to incorporate patterns in the fabric and the Liverpool shirt gained faint white streaks, This shirt is commonly known as the "Fleck Shirt".

  The shorts changed, gaining a broad white stripe down the sides with the three Adidas stripes in red on this stripe. The away strip remained silver grey with red trim, but again the fabric gained a pattern, this time two subtle shades of grey in this fleck style, The badges stayed fully embossed on the replica shirts and stitched on the players shirts, thus keeping the traditions for determining the difference between the replica and players style shirt.

  Although the size of the wording "Candy" altered tremendously from replica to payers shirt, also altering in size on the different players shirt in each competition, as you can see from the picture below the candy logo takes up most of the chest of the shirt, considerably larger than on the previous home or away shirts.

  Candy continued to sponsor Liverpool in the 1989-1991 seasons. The grey away shirt for this era has significant changes - instead of adopting plain red colour like the ones from 1985-1989, this piece shows a specky-red pattern colour. For the shirts from season 1989-1990, there are no patches on the sleeves and sewn on numbers are stitched on the backside. For the season 1990-1991, Division One Football League patches are stitched on the sleeves and velveteen numbers are ironed on the backside.

  In 1989 Charity Shield match was used simple away shirt (photo in top left side page, Ian Rush A 1.1), in shirt not was special embroidery to this match. The special embroidery as was absent in matches Charity Shield 1971, 1974, 1979, 1980, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1992 & 1994. Liverpool also played in 60's Charity Shield matches, but and this matches used simple shirt, without special embroidery.
