Another rumour is it's Warrior, not a fan of their kits but would help us financially.
Warrior is owned in part by Liverpool's owners so definitely not. Pretty much liked every Nike kit we have had, but if the club is having problems with them then not that bothered if we change

Anyone else heard the rumour that the Nike deal will be cut short, and this will be our last season with them?

I saw someone mention Adidas on Twitter tonight? I'd love that, myself.

Can't say I've been impressed by Nike - the home shirts in particular have been horrors.

I think Nike's kits have been OK. I liked all of last seasons, and the away and third this season are spot on. The only one I don't like is this years home, and that's mainly because of the stupid rings on the sleeves and that fucking badge!

Give me Nike over Warrior any day! Adidas would be a nice change though.

It 100% isnt warrior - they are affiliated with LFC owners more so than the club directly.

We originally signed a 3 year deal with Nike. We were going to try and pull out of said deal as EFC were furious with Nikes treatment of the club.

But were staying with Nike for the next season at least and if they actually perform for us, id imagine we will continue to work with them for a while longer.

It was Moyes who wanted Nike bringing in as he seen LCS as minnows.

I think the Nike kits have mostly been better than the LCS kits. I never really liked them.

Adidas is probably my favourite possibility.

I agree, Le Coq kits were great, I particularly like the 2009-10 home kit, but I also like last season's kits, this season's not so much

I dunno, I just feel they haven't aged very well. They looked dated when they were released. The Nike kits are a bit boring for my taste but they have a modern look to them.

Just guess work I assume? Warrior are trying to get into football in the UK, and whilst Fellaini was still here, he agreed a boot deal with them. Warrior are not only in the UK to make kits for Liverpool. Warrior is a realistic possibility, albeit one I'm not too keen on!

They are owned in part by Fenway, be uproar if we sign with them

Nike kits are terrible, but then again there is only so much you can do with a plain blue jersey! Bring back Le coq sportif

Biggest problem with the big brands is that they take the piss with the designs if you're not a major major club. Last season's home kit is being used as Athletico Bilbao's away strip for this year. If the Nike deal's still in place next year then there's a chance we'll end up with a spin off design from another club's kit. Unless you're Barcelona or someone like that Nike don't care about how much they have to market a club. Even City are struggling to get their deal with them off the ground commercially. They might be a big brand in footy but they couldn't give a shit about putting the legwork in cos they reckon their name takes them places and they're not wrong like

I'd take Adidas or even having Puma back. Umbro have sold out too much for me to bring them back even with the club's history with them. Think Reebok got out of the kits game a while back. Le Coq's kits were really smart especially the ones with the old fashioned collars like the 3rd kit from a few years ago and their last home shirt. As for Warrior - FUCK THAT! Everton shirts should be as traditional as the club. Don't want them being sold out to include a pattern of Cherokee shit or whatever was on the other lot's away kit this year

Umbro are part of Nike now anyway, so I guess that's not an option.

I'm pretty sure Adidas bought out Reebok too, so that would rule them out.

I'd be happy with Puma again.
