Fantasy Kit Friday – Liverpool/Manchester United 1980s swap

Back in late September, we did a Liverpool version of the 1996-97 Hamburg kit and Nicholas Young left a comment:

How about a swap of Liverpool and Man United adidas kits from the 80s? Home and away of course.

A big undertaking, so we decided to leave it until Christmas. Obviously, there is a challenge in that for the latter half of the decade both clubs had adidas kits so you’re trying to avoid having them look like themselves. In that regard, a small bit of poetic licence was necessary but we’ve tried to be faithful in terms of swapping the real-life kit-launch years.

Feedback is welcome on how successfully or not we’ve done that, comment below or tweet us @museumofjerseys.
