    How will it reduce counterfeiting? Are they gonna change it every season or something? I highly doubt it. I don’t get it …
    Anyway, I like the new look (numbering/lettering/sleeve patch). Can’t wait to get new Liverpool jerseys with the new look =p

    at first i didn’t like the new writing, but i do like it now. much better than the old writing. i have the new united shirt with rooney on the back and its class. only problem is the writing peels off and needs to be ironed back on but apart from that its brilliant
