With Graeme Souness at the helm, Liverpool Football Club recruited a number of
big name players who were expected to regain the Division One League title. Dean
Saunders, Mark Walters, Mark Wright, Rob Jones and Jamie Redknapp all made debuts
this season as the club struggled to keep pace with the runaway league winners Leeds
United. Liverpool finished an embarrassing 18 points behind Eric Cantona and his
chums from Yorkshire.
There was a radical development in the production of Liverpool shirts in 1991/92
as Adidas opted for a green away shirt. In the first 100 years of Liverpool’s existence,
the Merseyside team had never worn a green shirt, usually opting for the colour white
or yellow when playing away from home. The colour, known as ‘bottle green’, was seen
as a big step at the time but seemed to be popular amongst the younger fans.
This shirt was worn by Rob Jones in the 1991/92 season.
The long sleeved green away shirt is one of the hardest-to-find match worn shirts of the
modern era (1990-present day). The jersey, which was used for just one season, is
estimated to have been worn on only five occasions (verses Nottingham Forest,
Manchester United, Southampton, Arsenal and Sheffield United). The shirts rarity is
highlighted by the fact that one of our favourite Liverpool collectors, Michael Yip, is only
able to display a short sleeve substitute #14 shirt in his impressive collection.
