2008-2010 Home Player Shirt
|Since Liverpool returned to Adidas brand kits in season 2006-2007, this is the second home shirt released, and spanned two seasons from 2008-2009 and 2009-2010.
This shirt looks a bit like the 1995-1996 home shirt (the last home kit of the "earlier Adidas era"), with special Red and White Kop checker squares on the inner neck collar as pattern.
Shirt also bears Liverbird on backside.

|Fake Alert! Hong Kong based DIY " Carlsberg" added on plain stocks!|
|Be cautious when surfing through the internet auctions and meeting with Hong Kong sellers' so-called "player issued" shirts with the Big Carlsberg or Small Carlsberg.
They are not officially the same thing as the genuine player shirts. In fact, what is cunningly done here is that they bought some plain non-sponsored stocks from ebay, and then make use of some computer CAD programs to cut-out the guesstimated "bigger" Carlsberg transfer sponsor, as well as the "small" Carlsberg.
No matter in texture, actual details / dimension, actual positioning measurements of such counterfeit are pathetic. (Of course they thought they did a great job which no one can tell the counterfeits from the genuine, but this is not the case when you held two shirts side by side)
Whenever you look for a genuine Liverpool "big-Carlsberg" player shirt, always avoid the Hong Kong sellers.

|Up to June 2009 (the time of creation of this page), the flooding of long sleeved red home 2008-2010 plain player stock shirts has not yet occurred, so you are temporarily expected to see those DIY big-Carlsberg home short sleeved shirts only.
Sooner in the season 2009-2010, once eBay is full of long sleeved red home plain stock shirts, you will see the Hongkongers cloning up loads of so-called big Carlsberg player issued shirts with pathetic DIY Carlsberg sponsor.
