Poor Liverpool!

4 Jun

pepe ReinaPurple must be in the ‘in’ color for keepers this year, eh? Lordy. Poor Pepe Reina. Want to see the rest of Liverpool’s new kits? Are you SURE? Because you may need some serious brain bleach. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya!

LAjiiQVBL3GQNVCQAACESCBL3GKx6CIAAcN3HSo every time we think about complaining about the font on our new kits, take a look at these pictures, okay? Their font is about the only good thing about these! (Via bbcsporf and 101 Great Goals)

    i think of pepe reina as a pretty happy go lucky kind of guy. this isn’t even his SERIOUS face, this is his,”i really f’ing hate this awful kit” face. poor dear.

    What IS that pattern? Can you even call it a pattern? It looks like there was a glitch in their printer. Correct me if I’m wrong but, .clubs do want to make money off of their jerseys right?…

      That is what I have said. Jersey design DOES determine sales. How many people do you see on the street wearing Barca’s Tequila Sunrise jersey?

        just found this picture and immediately thought about your comment- looks like there are people (well, at least this really cute kid) who actually wear it 🙂 https://twitter.com/JackWilshere/status/341520702161174529/photo/1

          Hahaha! The poor kid doesn’t know any better. It probably went on sale!

          But Jack Wilshere has just gone down a few points in my esteem list.

        • headbandsandheartbreak June 5, 2013 at 12:24 pm #

          That really cute kid is Jack Wilshere’s son Archie. Isn’t he adorable? Jack’s girlfriend (and Archie’s mum) is apparently preggers again as well.

          • ola June 5, 2013 at 1:43 pm #

            whoa I didn’t know they are together again after they broke up before Archie was born…

          • ola June 5, 2013 at 1:49 pm #

            And it is great to know Archie will have little brother or sister 🙂

        I actually saw one, in a shopping centre near Birmingham. I had to stop myself from asking the man wearing it whether he should be out on his own or needed directions back to the sanatorium.

    Haha, I’d already seen this kits, but I still need the eye bleach. It never gets better.

    On the white ones it looks like some sort of shit awful tetris. I don’t even know whats going on with the others. As we say in Wales, ach y fi

    • jellyace June 5, 2013 at 12:15 am #

      Hahaha! The Liverpool Tetris jersey! I love that but hate the jersey!

      Can you imagine Luiz Suarez in the Tetris Jersey? All my hates combined!

  5. la-la June 4, 2013 at 5:55 pm #

    Apart from that I’m digging the pink, purple and mauve colourway. Can’t wait to see those scallies decked out in that!

    This doesn´t top the Barca tequila sunrise kit for me but it´s still pretty bad. As someone who loves to paint the pattern really is head- scratch worthy.
    I heard ( don´t ask me where and everyone I know heard it as well) that purple means sexual frustration. That makes it funny to me that so many goalies lately are dressed in purple. I assume that it doesn´t make too much sense in Reina´s case though hehe.

    • la-la June 4, 2013 at 6:03 pm #

      Really?! That’s hilarious…your avatar tile (sorry, don’t know what else to call it) is purple too….sumthin u want to share SR 4 ???
      😉

      • SR 4 June 4, 2013 at 6:10 pm #

        Hahahah I wasn´t even thinking of that. Can you select one though? I got this one and have no clue how to change it. I actually do like purple and wear purple clothes once in a while and then laugh at myself.
        Well since you are asking… You can send Sergio over anytime ;)!

    • Mehreh June 4, 2013 at 6:10 pm #

      fairly safe to say pepe’s getting it on the regular. lucky wife.

      • SR 4 June 4, 2013 at 6:13 pm #

        I´m pretty sure he does. He always seems to be in a good mood and relaxed ;)!

    • MissLadya June 4, 2013 at 9:40 pm #

      Isn’t purple also the color of gay pride … ? Sexual gay frustrations! Someone get some hidden cams in the locker rooms, stat! XD

      • headbandsandheartbreak June 4, 2013 at 10:21 pm #

        The rainbow is the symbol of gay pride, not just purple, but hey, I’m all for the man love! 😉

        • SR 4 June 5, 2013 at 8:54 pm #

          Now we know why Nando wore the rainbow shorts last summer ;).

  7. caivallon June 4, 2013 at 6:16 pm #

    Really??? Are they serious??
    That is horrible… I don’t want to imagine anybody wearing /this/… >_<

    Really puts the Madrid kits into perspective. As I keep telling myself “my clubs just want to save me some money this year.” No new shirts for moi.

  9. ola June 4, 2013 at 7:01 pm #

    What happened to all the kits’ designers this year? They are all like “and remember, we must make it weird. Or at least add something weird on it. Like strange font . Or colors. Or anything”

  10. Akemi June 4, 2013 at 8:30 pm #

    I think the design on the purple looks like a cool incorporation of the Standard Charter logo on to their kit except just barely bearable, but gawd, that white one is hideous!!! What is that argyle-slash-houndstooth-slash-confetti-bomb monstrosity?!?!

  11. Mandi June 4, 2013 at 8:35 pm #

    Warrior, you’re not doing yourself any favors here. I love the new home kits but the away and third kit? Blech. I planned on getting an away one this year, guess it’ll be another home kit.

  12. MissLadya June 4, 2013 at 9:37 pm #

    Oh god … and the red-white one makes it look as though the player’s suffered extensive knife-wounds to the stomach O_o

    Is it Throwback Thursday?

  14. Lexi June 5, 2013 at 10:47 am #

    I support Liverpool and in recent seasons they’ve seemed to be inspired by old vintage kits but this is not something I’m keen to buy in a hurry. The purple and black shirt is horrendous and the red and white one reminds me of the ski print on Christmas jumpers

    This really needs to be purged

    […] of “fashion” have you seen Liverpool’s new training shirts? I thought their kits were bad enough, but OUCH. The hits keep coming. Still not as bad as Barca’s training shirts […]
