Never walk alone in retro Liverpool football shirts

The past is another country, where Liverpool won titles and European Cups with remorseless regularity. Times are a little tougher these days, but loyal Reds fans can revisit those epic successes by pulling on authentic Liverpool football shirts from yesteryear.

The Old-Fashioned Football Shirt Company (www.toffs.com) is your first point of call for lovingly-made cotton replica shirts from various eras in the club history, costing £34.99 each.

There you will find the classic round-collared shirt of the late 60s and early 70s, when Liverpool became a formidable force under Bill Shankly, with players like Steve Heighway, Kevin Keegan, Emlyn Hughes and Tommy Smith.

They also offer the V-necked shirt from the 1977 European Cup Final, the first of 5 Liverpool successes in this competition, when the team overcame Borussia Moenchengladbach to be crowned champions of Europe under Bob Paisley.

When Kenny Dalglish was a Liverpool player, rather than the manager, his number 7 shirt became synonymous with imminent danger for every opponent across Europe. His classic shirt with his name on the back costs £44.99.

Dalglish was manager in the last of the Liverpool glory years dominating the English league in the late 80s. The 1987-88 shirt comes with the Crown Paints sponsor logo across the chest.

For more recent football shirts, notably the ones from the 2005 and 2006 seasons when Liverpool won the Champions League and FA Cup under Rafa Benitez, head for ebay (www.ebay.co.uk) where you should be able to find replica shirts for under £10.
