Helen Turner – the Manchester City bell ringer

Manchester City will be trying to win the League Cup for the first time since 1976 when they face Sunderland at Wembley on Sunday. When they last won the competition 38 years ago – against north-east opposition in the shape of Newcastle, if you’re a fan of omens – things were a bit different. For instance, as they completed a … Continue reading

Cigarette pack football kits by Leo Fitzmaurice

These very clever pieces are the work of British artist Leo Fitzmaurice. He wisely observed that beyond the cliches about writing your team on the back of a fag packet, you could also fashion some very nice kits for them, too. The kits are torn and folded to provide some very neat football-themed origami (and some genuinely interesting 1990s-esque kit … Continue reading

The Premier League has a new scarf fan… Felix Magath

New Fulham manager Felix Magath could be the man to take up Roberto Mancini’s title as the Premier League’s foremost scarf-wearer. Unlike Mancini, Magath tends not to opt for club colours (so we’ve still got some work to do to get him into a Fulham scarf), although he has done on occasion. But the incoming Cottagers boss does like fine, … Continue reading

Man City/Barcelona half-and-half scarf seller relocates to Old Trafford

There had been been a lot of ‘one team in Manchester’ talk before last night’s game between Manchester City and Barcelona. Manuel Pellegrini said City were the only team in Manchester this season, Dani Alves claimed that he only found out there was two teams in Manchester quite recently. This scarf salesman didn’t help City’s cause. He relocated from the … Continue reading

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew raids the club shop for a scarf

Alan Pardew has proven that Newcastle’s current lack of spending extends to his wardrobe. He raided the club shop for an £8.99 scarf to keep him warm during last night’s 0-4 home drubbing at the hands of Tottenham. The Magpies boss plumped for the NUFC Pegasus scarf – which you can see more clearly here -and it didn’t appear to … Continue reading

Ex-Ajax and Ipswich star Martijn Reuser in his Savile Rogue scarf

Remember Martijn Reuser? Having come through the ranks at Ajax in the late-1990s, a knee injury held him back from becoming the Dutch international star he was expected to become and he ended his career with just one Holland cap to his name. In 2000, he made the switch to Ipswich Town. Having helped the Tractor Boys to promotion, he … Continue reading
