      Apparently every teal shirt has it's own design on the front. That was the sh*te Nike PR guff I read.

      I read somewhere too that the teal shirt was also apparently inspired by "Liverpool's musical heritage". I think they just come out with any old sh*te & hope it sticks!

      It'll stick like sh*t sticks to a blanket, and like the blanket, will be binned.

      Going off some of the recent monstrosities of the last few years I'd say we're probably only about a decade away from a literal shitty blanket inspired Liverpool 3rd kit

      Based on figures for the U.K;

      Home shirt is currently down on last year by 12%.
      Keeper shirt is down by 30%
      3rd shirt is down by a massive 57%

      Surprisingly the away shirt is up by 34%.

      Definitely not the best of starts with Nike. Underwhelming designs and the price hike make it understandable.

      Has more to do with Covid than anything.

      If it was more to do with that then I doubt the away kit would have had the increase it has.

      Supply issues haven’t helped - been many people complaining that they have been unable to order due to stock. Also shop itself not been busy , also lack of matchday fans buying from shops etc

      It's difficult to get anything at the moment.
      I'd say it's possibly a supply problem.
      Let's be honest though, the Nike stuff is not as good as what NB provided last season.
      Wonder how the training sales are doing...

      As noted, probably a combination of Covid & folk just not liking the shirts.

      I was sent that promotional press release as well a couple of days ago.  It's pure fingers in the air stuff.

      Having said that, sales probably are down due to a whole myriad of factors such as stadiums closed, financial aspect to it all, probably supply and the fact its not quite as good!

      Also its quite impossible to compare sales when we're in the middle of September yet some kits have been out for a couple of weeks when they'd normally be out for three months.

      Basically a company is trying to drum up interest in their app, released these 'figures' as a press releases and the Echo will print anything to get a few clicks.  That's the top and bottom of it.

      Struck me as odd because the 3rd kit is literally only out.
      Of course it's selling less its 2 months vs 2 weeks.

      I would say there is an increase in sales for the training gear due to it being, quite frankly better although still overpriced by around £20. First season for Nike though so let's see if they actually listen to the fans about design, drop the crazy price and improve material quality and I'm sure Nike will not only sell more, but make a much bigger profit.

      Don’t know why people are so down on the quality of the kit, how many of you have actually seen/touched one? I saw the home kit in a store a couple weekend back. It’s absolute class. Material and fit and finish is better and the colors are spot on. Yea the price is steep, that’s for sure, but this is the first time in about 5 or 6 years I’ve considered buying a top. Probably won’t but I’m at least considering it.

      Seen it a few times now in store, and the quality is absolute gash, it’s a stunner of a kit to look at and looks great in person, but the quality once you get your hands on it is less than desirable, but tbf, the last kit I actually properly had my hands on was a Warrior kit and it was majestic, so maybe it’s the new standard now.

      The white stripe on the home shirt is a bit sh*t, had they changed that to a slighty different shade of red, the home shirt would of been sound, as it is that white stripe lets it down a bit.

      Please just bag the away kit and use the third kit from here on.  Not crazy about the 3rd either, but it shows the difference between the poor and the god-awful.

      Yea, this green kit is pretty rough on the eyes. I really like the home kit and think it looks fantastic, especially after last season's kit which was our worst in years. Just god awful.

      I actually like the teal top, just not as part of the full kit.

      You know what kit I really liked was that all white with red trim we had a few years back. Keep it simple and sharp. Really like this years home strip. Still considering picking that up.

      First time I'd saw the shorts last night - don't understand why they're a different shade to the top. Don't think it would look so bad if it had black shorts, or at least if the shorts were the same colour as the top
