Excuse me being brief today, but I'm really not overly well at the moment. Here's a video of Liverpool modelling their brand new Warrior home kit for 2012/13 and it's a bobby dazzler...

Like it.

Apparently, the kit has caused a ripple of consternation among the Hillsborough Families due to the two flames of justice being removed from the newly streamlined crest though the keen-eyed among you may have noticed that a direct tribute to the 96 (including the twin flames) has been stitched on the back of the neck on the new kit.
