The Liverpool Shirts Museum
1989-1991 Home Player Shirt
Candy continued to sponsor Liverpool in the 1989-1991 seasons. The red home shirt for this era has significant changes - instead of adopting plain red colour like the ones from 1985-1989, this piece shows a specky-red pattern colour. For the shirts from season 1989-1990, there are no patches on the sleeves and sewn on numbers are stitched on the backside. For the season 1990-1991, Division One Football League patches are stitched on the sleeves and velveteen numbers are ironed on the backside.

In the 1980s, Adidas did not produce any long sleeved replicas. So a genuine long sleeved Liverpool shirt must be a player shirt.
The effect of embroidery is more conspicous if we view from the inner side.
