Sticker Sunday

RecyclingTime for the latest installment of Sticker Sunday. Remember: all Pies‘ sticker backs and empty packets are recycled and very few stickers are tested on animals before going in the album.

Alan Smith (Manchester United)
Physio fodder with slightly dog-eared corner. Bad start!
Louis Saha (Manchester United) Looks like he borrowed Ji-Sung Park’s shirt for the photoshoot.
Teemu Tainio (Tottenham Hotspur) Cheerful Finn.
Hayden Mullins (West Ham) Ouster of Argentinian World Cup stars.
Chris Kirkland (Wigan) Unlucky England keeper.
Kalmah the Squid (Barraki Creeps From The Deep) Huh? There’s a weird sea creature in my football stickers! Apparently there are six of these to collect too. A timely reminder that I’m too old to be collecting stickers!
MOST WANTED: Yossi Benayoun (West Ham) My first swap! Any takers?

Hossam Ghaly (Tottenham Hotspur)
Featuring skater boy goatee and a full set of teeth at this point.
Paul Dickov (Manchester City) Thierry Henry’s hero.
Johan Djourou (Arsenal) These swaps are like buses; you wait ages for one and two come along at once.
Chris Armstrong (Sheffield United) Hamster-esque Blades defender.
Ben Thatcher (Manchester City) Charlton defender masquerading as a Manchester City player.
West Ham team photo A first team photo. Alan Pardew’s showing a bit of thigh.

Ian Walker (Bolton) Veteran keeper maintains his luscious locks.
Andy O’Brien (Portsmouth) Pompey benchwarmer.
Lucas Neill (Blackburn) Another player snapped with his ex having since moved on to pastures new.
Zat Knight (Fulham) Zat 6 according to the 2 metre tall defender’s autograph.
Francis Jeffers (Blackburn Rovers) D’oh! My sticking in was nearly as asymmetrical as his ears!
MOST WANTED: Tim Cahill (Everton) Double sized stickeroo.

That concludes today’s draw. The next round of Sticker Sunday will be played over the weekend of 16 and 17 February. If anyone needs Johan Djourou or the Benayoun Most Wanted, feel free to leave a comment.

    Congratulations on this week’s haul. Shame you actually had to pay for Franny ‘Wingnut’ Jeffers when Blackburn got him in real life for free. I think they’re charging too much for these stickers.

    Far too expensive, Dom! Are you collecting them? Can I interest you in Johan Djourou?!!

    As much as I would like hail back to my childhood hobbies such as football stickers and pogs, I really can’t afford to after shelling out for a Wii recently. Only one childhood obsession allowed at a time now that I have car payments and phone bills to see to. For the foreseeable future it’s my love for Nintendo.
    Maybe next season though…

    Everytime i enter a sports shop i have bought some stickers in hope of finding Rover’s players. And then you got two in one pack! I got one in about 6 packs so far :-(

    Tugay came free in the Mirror the other week, I tried to nick it from work but the boss snaffled them all for her son.
