Arsenal FC announced that the FA Cup Final shirts from 1927, 1930 and 1932 are now on display in the Club museum, situated next to Emirates Stadium in the Northern Triangle Building.

The shirts have been donated by the relatives of Bob John, scorer in the 1932 showpiece, who played 467 times for the Gunners between 1922 and 1937.

This latest memorabilia joins a long list of famous exhibits including Michael Thomas’ boots from Anfield ’89, Charlie George’s FA Final Cup shirt from 1971 and Alan Smith’s shirt from the 1994 European Cup Winners’ Cup Final, as well as medals and caps belonging to David O’Leary, Lee Dixon, Brian Marwood and many others.

The museum, which had over 120,000 visitors last year, is open from Monday to Friday from 10am to 6pm, on Saturdays from 11am to 6pm and on Sundays from 10am to 5pm. Final admittance is 5pm on weekdays and 4pm at weekends.

Seems to me that those shirts doesn\'t have the white sleeves, and I\'ve seen a lot of people here complaining about the new shirt.

the white sleeves were introduced in 1933 by Chapman to make the players stand out more.<br /><br />The attempt in 1966 to revert to all red jerseys was frowned upon by supportersand the following year, the white sleeves returned.<br /><br />Personally, i do think the white sleeves make the Arsenal jersey.<br /><br />On a side point, i think the old badges are class. Alot nicer than the current badge!!

My nipples itch just looking at those shirts...

That is because Arsenal didn\'t adopt their familiar shirts until 1934, but the style is so synonymous with the club that any attempts to change the shirt style in recent history has been met with much derision.<br /><br />Aside from the 05/06 redcurrant kit to commemorate the final season at Highbury (based on the 1913 kit), Arsenal had worn a plain red shirt in 65/66 and 66/67 which wasn\'t popular, and Nike\'s first kit worn in 94/95 and 95/96 also divided the fans because the underarms of the sleeves were red. In modern history tinkering with a \"traditional\" kit to the point of it being unrecognisable does not go down well with fans... not just Arsenal but many other clubs as well.
