Ranking every Liverpool home shirt of the Premier League era

Quick Reads

There really isn’t that much you can do with a Liverpool home shirt – yet their kit manufacturers over the years have still managed to produce the good, the bad and the ugly.

We’ve ranked each and every home shirt Liverpool have worn in the Premier League to date.

Note: We actually took a vote on this in 2017, so if you’re unhappy with the order, you’ve only got yourself – or at least your 2017 self – to blame. If you do want to slag us off, tweet @planetfutebol.

20. 1993-95

Admittedly it might be Ian Rush’s moustache that’s putting us off this.

19. 2000-02

Even Didi Hamann looks annoyed to be wearing it.

18. 2002-04

A shirt that stinks of El Hadji Diouf and missed opportunities.

17. 2010-12

This is the first picture we found when searching for this shirt, which is enough to explain why it’s so low.

16. 1995-96

Potentially good, but that collar is insane.

15. 2014-15

There’s really not much positive to say about Steven Gerrard’s last season at the club.

14. 2012-13

Sometimes it’s hard to say anything of note about a plain red polo shirt. Sometimes that’s okay.

13. 2013-14 

Possibly the best of the Warrior Sports era, which is the definition of being damned with faint praise.

12. 2006-08

Templated Champions League final defeats are the worst kind of Champions League final defeats.

11. 2015-16

New Balance were a welcome change from Warrior Sports, but they stayed loyal to recent designs for their first couple of seasons.

10. 2008-10

This shirt looks good to us, but in searching for it we found it was mostly worn by forgettable signings – we’re looking at you, Philip Degan – which seems quite apt.

9. 2020-21

This would be a very, very basic shirt were it not for the green trim – but that’s enough to make us immediately love it. We’re always wary of placing new kits too high – let’s see how we all feel about this 12 months from now – but unlike the 1993 version, we’re fans for now.

8. 1996-98

This is good but…what the f*ck is going on with that badge?

7. 2019-20

This was sexy. Oh, and it doesn’t harm that Liverpool won the league in it.

6. 1998-00

If it wasn’t for the baggy 90s fit this would be great.

5. 2018-19

There’s going to be a very popular retro range of these shirts with ‘Origi 27’ on the back in 20 years.

4. 2016-17

We have a soft spot for the slight grandad collar on this.

3. 2004-06

ISTANBUL.

 

2. 2017-18

So much yes. The return of the white v-neck in a simple and slick design. God bless you, New Balance.

1. 1992-93

We just can’t stop looking at that shoulder.
