When we ask Arsenal fans what their favourite ever football shirt the most popular choice is the 1989 Arsenal away shirt.
The vintage adidas shirt an absolute banger. V neck collar, Blue sleeves with yellow stripes. Classic adidas logo and JVC sponsor. It was also worn in 2 of Arsenal’s most iconic moments.
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’.
