Many Everton fans were baying for Luis Suarez to be sent-off during yesterday’s Merseyside debut. This enterprising young chap came equipped with his own red card. With referee Andre Marriner not bowing to pressure to dismiss the Uruguayan striker, the kid took matters into his own hands. Television cameras caught him showing the red card over Marriner’s shoulder. We’re not … Continue reading

Club Brugge coach George Leekens sports a cheeky paisley silk scarf against Newcastle

There was only one real contender for last night’s Dandiest Man At St James’ Park competition. Club Brugge coach George Leekens blew the competition out of the water by wearing a paisley scarf in the dugout during his side’s Europe League defeat to Newcastle. The only disappointment was that ESPN didn’t play a little snippet of Soul Bossa Nova every … Continue reading

It looks like Ed Balls needs a warmer Norwich scarf

Shunning the potential offered by his name to become the greatest targetman in footballing history, Ed Balls instead opted for a career in politics. The Shadow Chancellor maintains his football connections by being a regular at local club Norwich City. But judging by this image of him during Saturday’s victory over Arsenal, it looks like Balls might be struggling to … Continue reading

Ray Wilkins dons a Savile Rogue scarf

Ray Wilkins: Chelsea legend and QPR legend. Ultimately, his loyalties probably lie with boyhood club Chelsea, but he can now hedge his bets with a new Savile Rogue blue and white bar scarf. Butch was at a fundraising event for our friends at football charity Street League yesterday evening. In retrospect, perhaps we should have given him a pair of … Continue reading

Poland fans’ impressive scarf action ahead of England match

You could have forgiven Poland’s fans for waving umbrellas above their heads before yesterday’s rearranged World Cup qualifier against England. To their credit, they instead went down the more traditional route of scarves. And a very impressive display it was, too. Ahead of kick-off, the crowd welcomed the teams onto the pitch with a sea of red and white scarves … Continue reading

Drenched Roy Hodgson falls prey to the England manager’s accessories embargo

There was plenty of uncertainty in the air before last night’s postponed World Cup qualifier between Poland and England. The only thing you could guarantee was that Roy Hodgson would not be resorting to any rainwear or accessories to shelter from the downpour in Warsaw. That ship sailed when Steve McClaren became the ‘Wally With The Brolly’ after England’s home … Continue reading

The upside of not being allowed to enjoy a beer while watching your team

As a football fan, you’re deemed to be incapable of enjoying a beer while you watch the match (Mike Ashley excluded, of course). You’d probably start a brawl, throw your beverage at a small child or engage some similar sort of behaviour given half-a-chance, wouldn’t you? In the rough-and-tumble world of rugger, you’re free to get as intoxicated as you … Continue reading

Are you backing Non-League Day?

This Saturday is Non-League Day. If you’re not familiar with Non-League Day, it’s basically a celebration of the lower reaches of the British footballing pyramid. It’s deliberately timed to take place during an international break on a Saturday that doesn’t clash with an England match. Saturday, October 13, fits that bill and the plan is that you’ll take the opportunity … Continue reading

AC Milan fans’ tasteless Antonio Cassano banner

Football banners can bring out the best and the worst in terrace humour. This example from last weekend’s Milan derby falls into the latter category. Antonio Cassano underwent heart surgery last season after suffering stroke symptoms on the plane of his then club AC Milan. But in the summer he left the San Siro to complete a controversial move to … Continue reading
