When Mascots Attack by Urban Gent

Urban Gent do a nice line in t-shirts and are offering some classy World Cup designs at the moment. This one, entitled When Mascots Attack, caught our eye. It’s the work of Greek illustrator Johnny Negri, who very cleverly took the iconic Zinedine Zidane vs Marco Materazzi headbutt from the 2006 World Cup final and applied it to a couple … Continue reading

Brazil Fourteen: the nicest World Cup wall chart you’re likely to see

Our memories of World Cup wall charts are of pretty garish, glossy monstrosities. Those are not accusations you level at Brazil Fourteen. Designed by London agency Karoshi, it’s nearly the anti-wall chart. Stylish, sophisticated, understated, well-designed. In short, excellent. It’s available in a screenprint version (which comes with a matching metallic pen to fill in the results) or a digital … Continue reading

Kampion Card Game

With a major international football tournament looming, it is not unusual for fans of all ages to regress to their childhood and get a sudden urge to start collecting stickers and cards.

World Cup 2014 print collection by Art of Sport

Art of Sport has commissioned a series of prints ahead of the World Cup. There’s one for every finalist and a couple for some lucky nations. The collection includes some wonderful designs, but it would be rude not to feature one of the Brazil prints here, what with them being hosts and all. This one is called Jesus Saves.

Arsenal fan reveals competition-winning original Gunnersaurus design

Gunnersaurus is perhaps one of the Premier League’s best known mascots, partly because he’s pretty hard to miss. It turns out the brains behind Gunnersaurus’ distinctive look was an 11-year-old lad called Peter Lovell. Some 20 years ago, he entered a competition to design the Gunners’ new mascot and he won. To celebrate Arsenal’s FA Cup victory, Peter – now … Continue reading

The assorted nasty shirts of Jimmy Bullard

We suppose dodgy gear is a bit of an FA Cup Final tradition in its own way. With the clubs now tied into exclusive deals with tailoring houses there are fewer opportunities for the players to get it wrong, so it is down to the pundits to play their part. BT Sport’s Jimmy Bullard did just that, managing to squeeze … Continue reading

Vincent Kompany celebrates in his Man City scarf

There has been an absence of scarves at Manchester City since Roberto Mancini’s departure last summer. But that all changed after Manuel Pellegrini’s side wrapped up the Premier League title last weekend. City skipper Vincent Kompany was among the members of the squad who donned a scarf during the celebrations. The Belgium international was photographed posing in his scarf on … Continue reading

Arsene Wenger’s matchday towel

Who said Arsene Wenger is no longer an innovator? The Arsenal boss dispelled those suggestions by sitting with a towel on his lap during yesterday’s win at Norwich. Perhaps spurred on by the news that Roy Hodgson was wearing a puffa jacket at Southampton, Wenger changed things up. He ditched his famous caterpillar coat in favour of sitting with an … Continue reading

Roy Hodgson’s first selection mistake: a wet look puffa jacket

England manager Roy Hodgson has demonstrated worryingly poor judgement the day before announcing his World Cup squad. He has obviously decided that the best way to get the better of Italy at the World Cup is by channeling his inner Cesare Prandelli. Hodgson opted for a Prandelli-style puffa jacket as he watched Southampton’s game at home to Manchester United yesterday. … Continue reading
