When they said "You need to rehabilitate your team's image", I don't think they meant with Photoshop  
Usually I show up to post egregious modelling from the Bayern Munich catalogues, but this time I cannot contain the shock and awe that is the Spring/Summer 2012 Liverpool FC catalogue. We are not here for the awkward modelling or horrendous casual wear, we are here for the scary waxen disease and cranial enlargement that seems to have befallen the team.




This feels a little Boston Red Sox-y to me, minus the letter style.




Is Maxi's head really this large? Is he just disproportionate? Are we copying and pasting his face onto someone else's body?


The tilted head is killing me.


I pray every day that you'll score in the league sometime soon, Andrew.


I find this one genuinely frightening. You seriously need to go to the online catalogue and view this one full size.


Head also seems a little large on this one.


Photoshop > Filter > Facial Hair > Stubble > 10%


I wish they'd make him pose with teddy bears in LFC kits or something.






There is literally nothing real in this picture, not even the feeling of joy that Kels usually inspires in people.

And in case for some reason you haven't yet been convinced that there is some horrific Photoshopping going on in this catalogue, I give you the woman representing the women's clothing section:


MY HEAD IS PASTEDE ON YAY.




The clothing collection itself is the usual combination of hideous graffitied and ornament-laden graphic treatment, although some of the more minimalist pieces may be okay. My favourite in the collection, though, is this men's polo shirt which at first I thought was horrifically ugly but now I kind of love the more I look at it:



It's already sold out on the website!

OMG LOOK AT THESE BEAUTIFUL MEN


I dont even care about the ugly photoshop, I love everything about this. I really wish I could get it :(

i'm glad they found a shirt to clash with skrtel's tattoos. that's how it's done best.
Zilchrobinsparkle on January 24th, 2012 04:57 am (UTC)
My goodness, I never found Skertz attractive until recently. It must be because he's a flawless player but looook at him with his arms all folded like a softy

Is that lens flare effect behind Suarez? So it's not just the PR team that needs to be sacked god I love Liverpool

Was the budget so small for this project they all had to share the same pair of jeans and trainers?

Also, that polo shirt that Coates is wearing is very similar to the new home shirt if the insiders are to be believed.

No Dagger ? Stupid LFC

Bloody awful clothing

The photoshop is seriously appalling. I don't even know what happened to Maxi's left leg.

I'm not sure about the last shirt, hmm maybe it will look better on a person. I love that white jacket Hendo is wearing though! I wish they come in women's sizes.
xue: kennyrapsukha4 on January 24th, 2012 10:55 am (UTC)
Oh and this shirt's design looks very like the supposed new kit we will have next season. It's not bad, but I worry our kit will look too much like a polo shirt.

elf_mdelf_md on January 24th, 2012 11:19 am (UTC)
Too bad there's no Daniel. But apparently scruff was a requirement and I sincerely doubt the boy can grow any kind of facial hair. ;)

Love the green hoodie on page 40, btw.

OT but I can't believe how many tickets against man utd are still left.
I'm very tempted but last minute plane tickets and hotel are going to be so expensive. *must stay strong*

i looked at them but they're all restricted view so it's kind of naff :/

Ah. Fulham use that design to. 'Fulham is my religion, Craven Cottage is my church.'
Wish Suarez wasn't on the cover...
Lydialexia269 on January 24th, 2012 12:44 pm (UTC)
lol it really is the worst in years. the past few haven't been that bad but I cringed so badly at these. The one of Hendo outside the gates is just terrible.

and carroll is ugly as fuck
and kelly looks so much like those hollywood stereotypes of the-popular-football-player-that-starts-the-movie-with-the-female-main-character-but-eventually-loses-her-to-the-nerd that is uncomfortable

Let's be real here. Most Liverpool players need photoshop. I was going to say sans Kelly but then I remembered what the situation is like when he opens his mouth/smiles. Such a shame.

ngl, lfc has some of the best merch most of the time. many times i've wanted to buy polos or hoodies from them. they seem to have a better design sense than just clothing with the team's name slapped on it. stuff that i would wear regularly and not just for sporting events or gameday

with that said, that last shirt is baaaaaaaaaaaad
Susie Carmichaelsumrndmgrl on January 25th, 2012 01:18 am (UTC)
they couldn't clean up the white around the shirts when they pasted them on a black blackground? sheesh.

not fond of the Chanel looking shirt though

that little black boy has some swag haha

that room is a bit scary though. reminds me of the fanatical boyband fans that covered their walls in posters and magazine clippings and had a giant Justin blanket and pillow

Seriously though, who put Carroll in that shirt? Trolling much?
