Get Adel Taarabt’s AC Milan look

It doesn’t really matter what happens on transfer deadline day – the most surreal move of the January transfer window is already out in the open. QPR’s Adel Taarabt making a move to Italian giants AC Milan is definitely one from the leftfield. Shades of Julien Faubert from West Ham to Real Madrid. Perhaps Taarabt will follow the path of … Continue reading

Liverpool’s excellent ‘Luis Suarez could nutmeg a mermaid’ banner

You don’t get enough high quality banners at games these days. And we don’t know that there’s ever been a great deal of mermaid-themed banners taken to matches at any stage of football’s development. But this effort by Liverpool fans at last night’s Merseyside derby ticks both boxes. “Luis Suarez could nutmeg a mermaid,” was the message proudly display. The … Continue reading

Fútbol: The Beautiful Game exhibition

This exhibition will be of particular interest to Savile Rogue fans Stateside, but we can all appreciate the artwork from afar. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is hosting Fútbol: The Beautiful Game, an exhibition of more than 50 piece of football-related artwork by around 30 different artists.

Roma’s Michel Bastos parades ‘Lazio Merda’ scarf

The scarf presentation is a grand transfer tradition. You snap-up your team’s new signing, make him hold a scarf above his head and snap a few photos. Everyone’s happy. The taste of the scarf being used is often questionable, but rarely quite so questionable as when Italian side Roma unveiled Michel Bastos this week. The Al Ain player, brought in … Continue reading

State of the Zine: From the Stands

State of the Zine: From the Stands is a fanzine about fanzines. The fan-produced fanzine has always given a healthy alternative view from the official party line as told by our clubs’ hierarchies. Although the fanzine heyday of the 1970s and 1980s is behind us, unofficial matchday publications are still going strong at many clubs. That’s the point of this … Continue reading

Visual representations of football clubs by Art of Sport

These great posters from Art of Sport – a collaboration between John Paul Stallard and Rob Duncan – give visual representations of football teams in poster form. There is nothing as obvious as the name of your club emblazoned across the poster. Instead, there are subtle references to names, nicknames and chants, delivered in a simple but effective style and … Continue reading

Away Days t-shirt from COPA x Stuart Roy Clarke

We’ve featured Dutch football fashion brand COPA a few times in the past, so we were bound to write about them again when they launched a collaboration with the excellent football photographer Stuart Roy Clarke as part of their Spring Summer 2014 collection. One such example of that collaboration is this Away Days t-shirt, which incorporates a few of Stuart’s … Continue reading

Lionel Messi channels Ron Burgundy at the Ballon D’Or ceremony

Lionel Messi’s dodgy suit has become a Ballon D’Or tradition over the last few years. After last year’s special polka dot effort, the Barcelona star arguably toned it down slightly this year. But he still veered away from what would ordinarily be deemed classic formalwear. Whether the recent release of Anchorman 2 played a role in Messi’s wardrobe choice we … Continue reading

Should have gone for cashmere, Jermain

Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe has landed in Canada as part of his protracted move to the MLS. The England international posed with a ‘Toronto Football Club’-emblazoned scarf upon his arrival at the airport. Loud lettering aside, Defoe’s scarf of choice isn’t dissimilar in design to our own Toronto Hattrick scarf. And we can’t help but feel that a cashmere scarf … Continue reading

Minimalist Crests by Daniel Nyari

We’ve featured Danuel Nyari before, but this time it is his Minimalist Crests project that has caught our eye. As far as we can tell, it’s just something he is doing on Twitter on an ad hoc basis at the moment. The premise is that he points the current graphic design trend for minimalism in the direction of football club … Continue reading
