This Liverpool away shirt will make you want to throw something at the TV

Liverpool have had some iconic away shirts over the years.  The Candy grey and red, the gold and black adidas monstrosity and the iconic 1995-96 Liverpool away shirt.

The shirt was so garishly 90s.  It was made by adidas with 4 green and white squares on the front.  It had a button up grandad collar, huge Carlsberg sponsor and the 3 black adidas stripes on the shoulder.  The shirt was the inspiration for the 2017-18 away shirt made by New Balance.

Its most famous airing came at the 1996 FA Cup final where Liverpool faced Manchester United.  Pre game the Liverpool squad donned their famous creme “Spice Boy” suits before getting changed into the green and white number.

The game was 0-0 and creeping into the final 5 minutes when David Beckham played in the corner, David James punched it out to Cantona, who adjusted his body and volleyed through a crowd of green and white Liverpool players to score the winning goal of the match.

A heartbreaking end to the match for Liverpool.  Although the 1995-96 Liverpool away shirt will make Liverpool fans want to chuck something at the TV we think its a banger.
