February Chill by Paul Thurlby

Over the weekend, The Guardian published an opinion piece by Barney Ronay entitled: “English football should snap out of its obsession with February chill.”

Essentially, it was all about how a bit of cold is good for society and good for football, including, as Ronay puts it, forging “a stadium culture of glorious outdoor collectivism”.

We’re in total agreement, as long as we can be excused a bit of cashmere neckwear to keep the terrace chill at bay. And it seems me are excused that, because that theme is picked up by artist Paul Thurlby in his accompanying illustration, which features three scarf-clad supporters gathered around a steaming hot pie.

See the original piece and the full illustration here.
