Liverpool Fans' Outrage at 'Cyan' Kit

  As the new football season comes ever closer, more and more new kits are being released.  Nice ones like Leicester City's new collared home kit and Manchester City's sentimental away kit have been welcomed by fans but it's Liverpool's third kit which has been the most controversial.

Liverpool's new white, cyan and black kit.
  The new kit, to be played against teams with red or very dark home kits, is, apparently, "white, cyan and black" but fans all over social media have blasted it as it adopts the colour of fierce Merseyside rivals, Everton, blue.  The club maintains that the cyan colour is a throwback to the original kit from 1892 and the design, inspired by the tracksuits of the famous teams of the '80s but, if I were a Liverpool fan, I wouldn't be too pleased.

  It's just as with Leicester City's tops of old which were block red, the colour of Nottingham Forest, but this Merseyside rivalry is far stronger than that of the East Midlands teams.  If Liverpool continue to succeed further than Everton, however, I'm sure the colour won't be a problem especially if worn by the winning team at Goodison Park one day next season...
