History of Retro Arsenal Shirts
Arsenal FC Stadium
For many Arsenal fans, the two stadiums of “Highbury” and “The Emirates” separate out two very different generations of football. The nostalgia of Highbury is strong amongst the Arsenal football fans community. Those who were lucky enough to experience watching “The Invincibles” with the likes of Patrick Viera, will recognise instantly some of the stylish retro arsenal shirts that have come out of that sublime footballing period. The move to The Emirates, which is a very impressive and modern stadium, marked the end of an Era at Highbury.
Having recognised that the team of 2003/2004 containing on form players such as Thierry Henry, Robert Pires to Dennis Bergkamp would be hard to match, football at The Emirates changed, and Arsenal started to slip down the Premier League table. However, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez brought some sublime talent to the football club, and also wore some modern but now almost retro, puma football shirts.
Major Trophies Won
Arsenal Football Club have won two European honours, although not the UEFA Champions League. They were finalists in 2006, where Barcelona managed to scrape the win. Their Henry wore the retro arsenal shirt that is so memorable: Yellow sponsored by O2 Phones. It was an iconic kit which marked another excellent season for Arsenal, under Arsene Wenger.
