A random football list: Top 40 magnificent moustaches
Where did all the moustaches go? These days it’s all bare upper lips and waxed chests. Shame. Get a load of this…
Hail Caesar. The rugged Welshman was one of the hardest defenders of his era -Â he played for Woolwich Arsenal from 1895-96, and became the Gooners’ first ‘international’ captain.
What’s an iremonger anyway? A tache salesman perhaps? Anyway, this is tremendous and not a little sinister.
Paynter was manager of West Ham from 1932-1950. This is a quite brilliantly groomed example of the tache genre.
He didn’t have a tache for long, but he wore it bloody well.
The first Liverpool player on this list.
… And another.
Ladies, fancy a ride in my Ford Capri?
Viv’s fuzz thickened with age. This is an early example.
One word: Begbie.
One word: Begbie.
Scary, very scary.
Leave it to the Dutch to master the ‘total moustache’.
First he makes the ponytail hall of fame. Now this.
Leicester’s No.1 gringo.
Lawro has since ditched his tache. We miss it.
Possibly the hardest, dirtiest defender in football history. Here he tries to wear Zico like a cheap suit, at the 1982 World Cup.
And the Liverpool players keep on comin’.
At last, an Everton player to break the Reds’ monopoly.
Lookin’ good, Sam.
The moustache is the least of his problems.
And we hit you up with another Des. Bam!
No, he hasn’t changed much since his playing days.
Wow. That is one unconvincing tache.
The whole look is amazing.
Not Ruud’s best look.
Never really favoured the tache as a player, but he’s been representing ever since.
Rudi Voller and Frank Rijkaard
A two-for-one deal. And I’ll take any excuse to post up this picture.
Put your hands up if you look like a dick.
Vicente del Bosque
None of your pencil tache flimsiness for Del Bosque. This is a man’s tache.
Big Phil Scolari
Grown for a Mercedes advert. He should have kept it.
