No, no, it’s fine, despite what you might think from the picture, the shorts are going to be purple, not orange. Oh, and white socks that’ll make a difference…maybe. Excuse me, did I say “purple?” I meant to say “nightshade.” More like nightsoil if you want this writer’s opinion. In some pictures it looks a little darker, but with those sleeves on it I don’t think it makes a bit of difference. As you might expect, the addition of the “tribal” pattern on the sleeves will have some “spillover” as players will now have to carry empty water bottles while they play so that they have somewhere to spit their dip. The only player that’s going to look “right” in this is Andy Carroll. Really, I don’t know what else to say about this…I think I hear small children sobbing. And to think that until I saw this kit I was going to make fun of…
I don’t know who the player is, but I think his facial expression says it all. The “pale violet” color is meant to evoke the color that was part of the club’s kit until 1913. Maybe there’s a reason that it hasn’t been worn in almost a century. Luckily nobody in Barnet will have to see this on a regular basis.
Seriously, scroll back to the top of this post. This is a LIVERPOOL kit, not the “Jersey Jam” of the Arena Football League 5. This Liverpool kit has to already be near the top of the all-time worst kits list.
