Interesting fact: About Emlyn
Hughes FA Cup Final, shirt which written Michael Yip (www.liverpoolkits.com).
Emlyn Hughes' match worn Liverpool F.A. Cup Final 1971 shirt.
The shirt was originated from legend Ian Ross. Basically, Ian Ross had played in most of
the games during the 1970-1971 F.A. Cup run in as Emlyn Hughes was injured. However,
Shankly choose Emyln Hughes for the F.A. Cup Final 1971 and dropped Ian Ross. After the
game Emlyn Hughes gave Ian Ross his shirt. This came straight from Ian's mouth.

Liverpool v Arsenal 1971 FA Cup Kits
Ever wondered why in years gone by you often found two clubs battling it out in an
FA Cup semi final or final both in their away kits? (e.g. QPR v Spurs in 1982) Well, maybe
its only me then, but it did happen quite frequently in the 60s, 70s and 80s.
I found this snippet in a 1971 Birmingham City programme that casts some light on
the subject. It refers to the 1971 FA Cup final between Arsenal and Liverpool (the match
in which Charlie George helped the Gunners to a memorable double):
“Liverpool will play in their normal all-red strip at Wembley. That was the
surprise decision of the FA after a turnabout on their own rules. FA secretary Denis
Follows held a private toss of a coin with one of his assistants after deciding to waive
the rule which states:
- Where the colours of the two competing clubs are similar, both clubs must change
unless alternative arrangements are mutually agreed by the competing clubs. -
Liverpool were tails and won the toss. As a result they will play in their normal
red colours and Arsenal must change to their reserve strip of yellow and blue.”
So there you have it – the rule in those days was that if their was a clash both
clubs must change strips!

Rule where the colours of the two competing clubs are
similar, both clubs must change unless alternative arrangements are mutually agreed by the
competing clubs. For Liverpool and other team was used in matches:
Liverpool-Arsenal, FA Cup Final, 29.04.1950.
Liverpool-Manchester United FA Cup Semi-Final, 31.03.1979.
Liverpool-Manchester United FA Cup Semi-Final Replay, 04.04.1979.
Only in season 1979-80, Liverpool played three FA Cup Semi-Final matches versus
Arsenal, teams by turns used the home and away kits.
This rule in other matches FA Cup Final or Semi-Final, work,
as and not work, how in match FA Cup Final Liverpool-Arsenal, 08.05.1971.
