What is your first football shirt?
It was the scrambled egg, dazzle ship horror show from 1992, clearly designed by people who’d had a lot of fun in the acid house years. I’ve supported Arsenal since 1980, but that was the first shirt I ever had and I bought it as a joke – that’s how eye-stingingly foul it was. I could never have guessed that 20 years later it would gain cult status.
What is your favourite football shirt?
It’s the yellow and blue Adidas / JVC away shirt worn in our title-winning season in 1989. I never had it, so no, I don’t have a photo of me wearing one. Although *in my mind*, during idle moments, I often wear it as I am bearing down on goal to score the goal that wins us our first title in 18 years.
What is your favourite football moment?
It’s a straight fight between ‘Thomas, charging through the midfield, it’s up for grabs now’, and ‘Would you believe it, that sums it all up’. Bit of a cliché, I know.
I was present at the latter, but the specific moment has melted into a blur with the passing of time. Thank god for YouTube.
