Hint of Everton blue in Liverpool kit has Anfield fans fuming

By Ian Herbert

Liverpool insisted last night that they would proceed with the marketing of a new third kit which includes a blue trim, despite the indignation of fans for whom the slightest hint of Everton's colours is anathema.

The club said that the use of the light shade of blue, which is cyan according to the kit's manufacturer Adidas, is not a response to the fact that Liverpool's sponsors Standard Chartered include a twist of light blue in their logo. They also denied the club's new American owner, Fenway Sports Group, had influenced the decision as the predominantly white kit had been over 12 months in preparation.
