Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

New Liverpool 2013-14 kit available in Manila this May 30

Following the landmark success of Warrior’s inaugural Liverpool FC home kit – the fastest selling in the Club’s history – the brand has revealed its new design for the 2013/14 season.

Headlining Warrior’s new and electrifying ‘Rise Up LFC’ campaign (#RiseUpLFC), the home kit is a modern take on the 1984 version, worn during the Club’s fourth European Cup win.

“The new home kit pays tribute to the renowned success LFC is built on, but it is also a nod to the future,” said Richard Wright, head of Warrior Football. “With high performance the top priority, our design team has further developed what was loved about our last design and lifted it to a new level. The result is an innovative take on the iconic red jersey.”

Liverpool FC manager Brendan Rodgers has applauded the new home kit.

“It’s distinctly Liverpool which the players and I love. It exceeds what we need it to do technically while also delivering a strong visual statement,” said Rodgers.

The 2013/14 Liverpool FC home kit includes a number of fresh design features.

Giving the familiar a contemporary overhaul, a white three-piece collar set upon a striking red colour scheme is complemented by mirrored details on each sleeve. Historically worn by player greats such as Alan Kennedy and Ian Rush, the bold white accents define the overall look.

Embraced by fans following its re-introduction in 2012, the Liver Bird crest has been incorporated into the new design in two key ways. Running alongside the embroidered emblem, a new pinstriped sublimation print on the front of the shirt showcases the iconic symbol with the words, ‘Liverpool FC’. Interwoven using a darker red hue, this eye-catching detail strengthens the kit’s visual depth. 


The new Liverpool kit will be available for sale here in Manila this May 30th at Planet Sports at the Power Plant, Alabang Town Center, and Trinoma at the price of Php 2,450!
