The headline is pretty self explanatory really. But here it is – and what a thing of beauty it is!

It’s quite an interesting idea, creating individualised  Subbuteo figures for specific players. Maybe we could have a punching Joey Barton figure, a sexually aroused John Terry, Andy Reid with a pie in his hand, Abou Diaby in a crumpled heap on the floor and Luis Suarez performing a Nazi salute?

    I was watching that kick the other day and it occurred to me that Higuita was coked out of his mind during that play. Wouldn’t really be that shocking considering it’s the Colombian team. Plus his reaction afterwards was a strange one, very ticky

    Cantona doing a flying kick and Vinnie Jones grabbing balls would be great additions.

    John Terry, a wrap of coke in one hand, someone else’s missis in the other, aiming a kick at a pregnant woman.

    MGJ is right. A Vinnie Jones/Gaza double would be the absolute best!
