Although the post-Kenny Dalglish era – and even Graeme Souness’s tenure – had begun at Liverpool during the previous season, it’s the 1991-92 campaign that feels like the seismic change.
There was much overhaul of the squad – Peter Beardsley, Gary Gillespie, David Speedie and Steve Staunton were sold in summer, and were followed out by Jimmy Carter, Glenn Hysén and Steve McMahon during the season, while in came Dean Saunders, Mark Walters, Mark Wright, and later Rob Jones, István Kózma and Michael Thomas. The new era was summed up with a new set of kits, as Liverpool became one of many to wear adidas’s bold new Equipment design, with three large stripes coming over the shoulder. The away kit, which had the same template, was in dark green, a colour not before seen on Liverpool outfield players.
The season saw Liverpool return to Europe, and a decent run in the Uefa Cup – along with multiple replays in the League Cup, and on the way to winning the FA Cup, made for a mammoth 64 game-campaign. Throughout this, the team was never settled – while this series is all about changes to Liverpool’s squad, it has so far been evolution, but in 1991-92. a combination of transfers, poor form, and a huge number of injuries led to constant churn of the first team. The main plus was the emergence of youngsters, with Rob Jones, Mike Marsh and Steve McManaman becoming first-team regulars and Steve Harkness, Don Hutchison and Jamie Redknapp making their first breakthroughs.
