The Women’s 2015 World Cup poster is very nice

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has always been desperate to play up the aesthetics of the women’s game. If only he had meant through outstanding poster design rather than something altogether more sexist. Nonetheless, the official poster for Canada 2015 is absolutely superb. Psychedelic, mountain-haired, sun ball keepie-uppies seems to be the order of the day for next summer’s tournament. The … Continue reading

Bayern Munich celebrates its World Cup winning credentials

Germany has now won four World Cups. On two occasions Bayern Munich have provided the captain and a third, Lothar Matthaus, is a Bayern legend, even if he was at Inter Milan when he lifted the trophy at Italia 90.

Richard Swarbrick illustrates Mario Gotze’s World Cup-winning goal

Artist and film-maker Richard Swarbrick has been impressively prolific with his output during the World Cup, capturing all the major goals and talking points. There is no trademark animation yet of Mario Gotze’s excellent winning goal for Germany in last night’s World Cup final win over Argentina, but he was very quick off the mark with this excellent illustration in … Continue reading

Matthew Craven sums up Brazil 1-7 Germany

Illustrator Matthew Craven has rather nicely summed up Germany’s efforts in raining all over Brazil’s World Cup parade in this picture. If Luiz Felipe Scolari’s side thought they were destined to win a sixth World Cup on homesoil, it wasn’t long after kick-off yesterday evening that it became abundantly clear that wasn’t going to be the case. The hosts’ 1-7 … Continue reading


Anatomy of England’s World Cup Injuries by Studio Kurosiwo

You can say what you like about England’s 2014 World Cup campaign, but at least the usual injury crisis was avoided. It is common practice for at least one guaranteed starter to injury before the tournament. Theo Walcott was probably the biggest name absentee for Brazil and England fans had from January to get used to the idea that he … Continue reading

1000% Elephants

We completely missed this during the group stages, so sadly the Ivory Coast have now departed the World Cup (and presumably this gentleman and his scarf with them). But having since spotting this glorious image we still had to share it with you. As you know, we prefer to keep our Savile Rogue scarves slogan-free and logo-free (just like the … Continue reading

The Age of Innocence: Football in the 1970s, edited by Reuel Golden, is one of those Taschen coffee table books with which you will be familiar. But this particular one has distinct selling point that it is all about football … Continue reading
