Aston Villa 1982 Football Shirts

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...

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Create an 80s Aerobics Fashion Look

Let's Get Physical 80s Workout Costume During the early 1980s, it felt like the whole world had gone aerobics crazy. Females everywhere donned leotards, leggings, headbands and legwarmers, and some were even on rollerskates! Pop stars and actresses were responsible for starting the craze. Olivia Newton-John started a headband fad after the release of here raunchy Physical video in 1981, and the song quickly became an aerobics anthem. And just about every home had a Jane Fonda workout video in their collection - often proudly on display on a book shelf in the living room, or carefully placed on a coffee table for all to see. However, contrary to popular belief, not everyone was wearing neon. Take a look back at the old workout videos and you'll see a whole range of colours and styles being worn. Some leotards were shiny, some had stripes and others were pastel. Zebra stripes, leopard print, and splatter paint designs were also worn by some. There were often (but not always)

An 80s Tennis Player Costume? You Cannot Be Serious!

While most people opt for a pop star theme when dressing up for an 80s party or event, one option that is a little more original is to dress like an 80s tennis player. The costumes I'm about to show are obviously based on John McEnroe, and I'm dead serious! The short-tempered tennis star became infamous for his confrontational behaviour towards the umpire during the 1980s, screaming "Answer my question! The question, jerk!" (when he angrily threw his racket at the juice cart) and "You can't be serious man, you cannot be serious!" when he thought the umpire had made a bad call about the ball being out. He was often booed by the crowds for his rants, but it was hugely entertaining to watch! Embed from Getty Images The look above is the one you should aim for, and this is the most iconic. So let's take a look at the fancy dress costume options available...   The white T-shirt and shorts outfit with red and blue stripes is based on McEnroe&
