LFC and Warrior have officially unveiled our home kit for the 2013/14 season (pictured right), and they look relatively smart.

As a matter of fact, I really like the home shirt – classy with a touch of retro. The squad will look sharp playing at Anfield, which is a necessity.

And now onto the reported away and third kits for 13/14 from Warrior – unless my eyes are deceiving me, these things are the height of hideousness.

If I were a player, I’d be kind of embarrassed to play in these terribly unfashionable, 90’s era designs. These shirts are a stone’s throw from being sold on the same rack as crazy pants [see striking similarity below].

I mean, am I right or am I right on this?

If these are the actual shirts as is suspected, Warrior obviously won’t sell jack all when it comes to the away & third shirts.

Of course, you’ll have the nominal amount of 90’s aficionados and those who just don’t care and will purchase anyway, but they’re going to see a severe drop off in the number of away and third jerseys sold.

Some Twitter responses…

For goodness’ sake, back to the drawing board, Warrior! The shirts are the definition of terrible! Just see the results of my completely made-up survey below…

Hopefully this is just a massive joke that Warrior and LFC are playing and we’ve all jumped the gun. Or, maybe they’re just training tops for the new season, which would be a small miracle. That being said, I’m turning this article into a petition of sorts in case they do attempt to unload this shite on us…

If these are actually our shirts, we’re going to be stuck with these disgusting away and third kits forever, and I think we have the right to challenge. Speak your mind below in the Facebook comments – I’m setting this up as a petition. Let’s speak out and save our players from having to walk onto away pitches in embarrassment.
