The first moment was the title win at Anfield.  Arsenal needed to beat Liverpool by a 2 goal margin to win the league.  They were winning 1-0 when Michael Thomas collected Alan Smith’s pass to calmly slot past Bruce Grobelaar in goal.

That shirt is part of the memory for Arsenal fans.  As East Lower says;

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 year

It was also worn by Arsenal away in the 1989-90 season, when some bright spark thought it would be a good idea to put a microphone on David Elleray for the Arsenal trip to Millwall.

When Adams has a goal disallowed when it all kicks off.  In an impossibly shrill voice, Adams screams at Elleray for minutes before committing the cardinal sin.

Adams calls Elleray the C-word. Not that C-word; he called him something that all refs are bound to hate. He called Elleray a ‘cheat’.
