Unparalleled is that rush of blood and excitement that engulfs you as you try on the kit of the club you support.
Liverpool Football Club boasts some of the best supporters in the world. From Merseyside to Down Under and Boston to Jakarta, you name it and there they will be, members of the red brethren keeping the Bill Shankly spirit alive.
Barring those fortunate folks who have been on hand to witness Liverpool making history, the rest of the lot express their support in various ways. On matchdays, this is usually at the local pub along with fellow sympathisers, sporting the club colours, holding the beer glasses high up and singing Kop-famous songs sitting before a widescreen television.
If you’d noticed the “sporting club colours” part from above, then you’ll also understand why kits are a little bit more important to these supporters sitting miles away from Anfield.
It is the only way that they find acceptance and recognition, even as it allows them to feel connected to their beloved club.
Thus every year when the new kit releases, there is interest from these off-shore fans as much as the local supporters.
So, when Liverpool decided to reveal their choice of kits for the 2013-14 season earlier this month, certain sections of these “off-shore supporters” were in for a shock. A look at the team’s away kit and you’ll know the cause behind the shock.
Over the years, Liverpool have managed to release such shocking kit designs among the many good ones that have gone down well with their supporter base.
So, here we rank the best of Liverpool kits, donned by the best of players for the best part of the last decade.
