|Official Aston Villa 1982 Home Football Shirt|
Celebrate Aston Villa's European Cup win of 1982 with these official, replica football shirts.
If you're a Villa fan over a certain age, then you will certainly remember the golden years of the early 1980s, when the team won their first league title for 71 years on May 2nd 1981, leaving Ipswich Town unamused in second place!
The Villa then beat Bayern Munich 1-0 in the European Cup Final in Rotterdam on 26th May 1982, with Peter Withe (remember him?) scoring the winning goal in the 67th minute. Praise must also go to goalkeeper Nigel Spink, who pulled off some magnificent saves, and without him I think Villa would have certainly lost the game.
These were golden years, indeed, and it's sad to see the team currently struggling near the bottom of the Premier league, although the fans have grown used to the struggles over the years! But here's hoping they don't get relegated yet again.
I found these officially licensed home and away Villa shirts, and celebratory T-shirts for a very reasonable price on Aston Villa F.C.s page on Amazon. They really look authentic with the embroidered crest and original design as worn by the players back in the 1982 European Cup, and these are my favourite designs of all the shirts worn over the years.
It was, of course, the away shirt that was worn in the actual final, which you can view below...
