Even though we are only in December, and therefore not even halfway through the season, it is somewhat surprising that we are already hearing about kits for next season.

But that is the case in regards to Liverpool. There has been a leak in the last few days in regards to their third kit for the 2020/21 campaign, which is said to be created by Nike. So far, it looks as though it will be with black squares in different shades, with a fair dose of pink as well.

It certainly seems to have got the fans talking, and they seem to be torn on the new design. Some fans absolutely love it.

Indeed, at least Nike have tried to do something different by adding in some different colours, even if it is a kit that is unlikely to be worn too often.

For every fans that likes it, though, there is one that doesn’t. Some of the club’s supporters have been scathing, and they haven’t held back in their criticism of it.

It is not too much a surprise to see the fans dislike it, as it is a new design and a new colour that they aren’t used to. Having said that, maybe they should be more open to change: nothing stays the same forever.

That seems to be what some fans would like. New Balance are currently the kit manufacturers, and portions of the fanbase have taken this as a chance to praise the US company.

Whether the fans like it or not, it makes sense for the Merseyside club to pursue a deal with Nike. The fee they will receive per season is said to be lower than what they are getting with their current partnership, but there is plenty of hope that they will receive a lot more over the course of the deal.

Will Liverpool beat Everton on Wednesday?

Yes

Yes

No

No

This, of course, is all in the future. For now, Liverpool fans should be enjoying the current season, as they lead the Premier League table by eight points.
