  • Buy a signed Zidane shirt for just £140! July 19th, 2006 Kits & fashion

    Is it the heat sending me crazy, or is £140 for a French team shirt signed by Zinedine Zidane (pictured) an absolute bargain? When you’re paying £40 for a new unsigned replica kit, why not throw in an extra £100 and own a piece of history? After all, ZZ is now one of the most […]

  • Man Utd’s new Busby kit July 18th, 2006 Kits & fashion

    Manchester United’s new kit has been designed by Nike to echo the strip worn by the Busby Babes, who won their first league title 50 years ago. I like its simple, retro look (complete with long, baggy shorts), although the AIG logo is a bit crap. The verdict on fans’ forums seems to be overwhelmingly […]

  • Cristiano Ronaldo Popular in Scotland t-shirt July 14th, 2006 Kits & fashion

    Gawd, if it wasn’t for young Cristiano, what would I have to write about in mid-July? Anyway, if you like irony and you like t-shirts, then you might want to check out this little number, courtesy of Tshirts365, the wags. They also do Popular in Wales and Popular in Ireland versions (all priced around £15, […]

  • Puma V1 06 Soft Ground football boot. Wilkommen zum fussball indeed July 13th, 2006 Kits & fashion

    During the World Cup, you may have seen those mysterious Puma ads starring a bunch of footballers (Pires, Ljungberg etc.) and some old dude named Pele, who pops up at the end to say, ‘Wilkommen zum fussball’ in a voice that makes him sound like your confused grandfather. Well, here’s what the fuss was about […]

  • Review: Sensible Soccer 2006 (PS2, Xbox, PC) July 13th, 2006 Kits & fashion

    When readers of a certain age (30+) remember the original Sensible Soccer, they’ll probably let out a nostalgic sigh. Sensi, as it’s affectionately known, was first released in 1992 (for PC and Amiga) and there were new versions of the game released almost every year up until 1999. For those of you who never played […]

  • Bolton’s new away kit uses Play Dry technology. Whatever the f**k that is July 10th, 2006 Bolton Wanderers

    Another example of a team changing its away colours on a seasonal basis. Bolton played in dark blue away from home last season, so why change to maroon? Anyway, Reebok’s new away shirt for the Wanderers features its trademarked Play Dry technology, which apparently possesses ‘moisture management properties’. In other words, it dries fast cause […]

  • Newcastle’s new away kit. What gives with the red and blue? July 6th, 2006 Kits & fashion

    I wish clubs would make up their mind when it comes to away kits – some change their away colours every year. If memory serves, the Magpies last had a red-and-blue away kit in the 1995/96 season – Adidas’s Newcastle away kit for the 2006/07 season resurrects that colour scheme and looks a bit of […]

  • Fulham’s new kit has thumb holes July 4th, 2006 Fulham

    This season I will mostly not be wearing a football shirt with thumb holes. I repeat, thumb holes. What the hell were the designers at French sports company Airness thinking when they put frickin’ thumb holes in the new Fulham kit? What possible purpose does a thumb hole serve, apart from making a laughing stock […]
