  In a season 1996-97 the design away shirt has changed. Liverpool used away shirt one season, 1996-97. In season 1996-97, Liverpool used with away shirt different kits:
  Away shorts and away socks
  Second away shorts and away socks

  A 1.0 - Away shirt (patches THE F.A. PREMIER LEAGUE & big Carlsberg logo & player number № 1) with away shorts & away socks.
  A 1.1 - Away shirt (patches THE F.A. PREMIER LEAGUE & big Carlsberg logo & player number № 1) with second away shorts & away socks.

  A 1.* - Away shirt with away shorts & away socks.
  A 1.* * - Away shirt with second away shorts & away socks.
  A G 1.* - Unknown me now which goalkeeper kits used in this matches, but I assume used Away goalkeeper shirt with away goalkeeper shorts & away goalkeeper socks.
  A G 1.* * - Unknown me now which goalkeeper kits used in this matches, but I assume used Away goalkeeper shirt with second away goalkeeper shorts & away goalkeeper socks.

  Liverpool player shirt comes without a sponsor logo Carlsberg on the crest position owing to ban of beer sponsoring in countries like Norway and France.

  In Liverpool Youth teams players shirt without a sponsor Carlsberg logo. Reserves and Youth teams not have family name players in back side shirt. Number player (start line numbers only with 1 on 11) in Reserves and Youth teams in back shirt not how shirt 1st team.

  In left away shirt (no REEBOK letters & small Carlsberg logo), may be I mistake, but in this shirt not was used. In one away Cup Winners Cup match when  Liverpool can used this away shirt was match versus F C Sion, as how home color club was all red. But in this away match Liverpool used home kits, why as I not know, may be forget away kits in England.

  Why Liverpool used for Cup Winners Cup matches shirt with small Carlsberg logo and no REEBOK letters in REEBOK logo, answer simp. The rules of UEFA has established the certain size of advertising on a shirt and consequently some changes have been made.

  Reebok's first kit design for Liverpool incorporates several features intended to recall Liverpool teams of old. The home kit is plain red with little trim. The current Shankly gates and Hillsborough flame badge is set into a large oval, as in the kits of the 50s and 60s. The turn over collar is more of a break with tradition however, and is the first to appear on a Liverpool kit since the bad old days of Second Division football.

  Again the shirt sported the extra badge on the bottom of the shirt on the outside, This time the badge said simply "Reebok, Official Merchandise" along side a smaller version of the same Liver bird badge as seen on the chest of the shirt, The collar was all white apart from a red stripe that ran through it, This strip also appeared on the white band at the end of the sleeves.

  The badge was a curious design as the oval badge was a completely separate piece of material that had been sewn onto the shirt, the badge was stitched and not embossed in any way, The shirt did not display a stripe for the first time in a while, instead a very faint image of the Liver Bird can be seen running through out the shirts material, whether this was great attention to detail or a way to make it harder for the shirt to be copied by the fake market remains to be seen.

  In 1996 Liverpool changed their kit manufacturer after a long association with Adidas 1985 to 1996 & will again sign deal with 2006 to 2012. In 1996 was signed deal with kit manufacturer Reebok 1996 to 2004.

  Distinction between a player shirt used in matchs Premier League and used in matchs European Cup in seasons 1996-98

  Player shirt used in the European Cup ties differs from the standard Premier League player shirt in having small Carlsberg sponsor logo as well as the simplified manufacturer motif REEBOK on the chest.

  In European Cup matches in Liverpool shirt rubber embossed "Carlsberg", have small size, not how in Premier League shirt. Also in shirt for Cup Winners Cup not have the "Official Licensed Product" tag (right side).

  The Reebok era shirts are very unlike the Umbro era ones in respect of size tags differences, player shirt and replica shirt.

  Attention! If you wish to buy a player shirt Liverpool on the Internet auction, be close. Be careful of a fake or purchases of a player shirt a semifinished item. The semifinished item is when on a game shirt add stripes (Premier League or other tournaments), a logo "Carlsberg", a surname and number of the player. One of large collectors of shirt of Liverpool Michael Yip warns about unfair sellers from Hong Kong. It concerns shirt not only last decade, but also 80 and 90 years. If you cannot distinguish a player shirt from a replica or a semifinished item, consult to Michael Yip (www.liverpoolkits.com).
