Here we have a vintage Chelsea football shirt from Seasons 1990-1992. This was the away shirt and as you can see was predominately red and white, with a diamond like pattern. The shirt was produced by Umbro. I wonder how popular this shirt was among the Chelsea fans. Continue reading
The English Premier League (EPL) is back. Are you ready for another nine months packed with controversy, the up and downs, the drama and the excitement that the Premier League often delivers, making it the most popular domestic football league on the planet.
Season 2012-13 certainly has a lot to live up to, following on the extraordinary last minute conclusion to last season with Manchester City winning the Title on goal difference from their city neighbours, United. Plus, the success of Team GB at the Olympics has lead to many focusing on some of the more unsavoury parts of our game and football and footballers and come in for a lot of criticism.

Nike has released the new Arsenal home shirt for the 2012-13 season and it’s available to buy here.
Nike wanted to reflect Arsenal’s great heritage and the new home shirt for the 2012-13 season pays tribute to the North London club’s visionary past and bright future, inspired by 126 years of innovation and style.
Nike recognised that Arsenal Football Club has a proud tradition of innovation and change. One of Arsenal’s most respected managers, Herbert Chapman, who managed the club from the mid 1920’s to the mid 1930’s, is a perfect example. He championed the use of floodlights, numbered shirts and white footballs that helped to shape the modern game.

Team GB’s men’s and women’s football team have reached the quarter finals at the Olympics, but do you really care? Personally, I’ve watched all of Team GB’s games, both the men’s and women’s. But that was just because I love football. I’d watch almost any game to be honest. I must admit though, I wasn’t emotionally involved to any great degree. Of course, I wanted Team GB to win but with nowhere near the intensity or desire when supporting my club team or England.
Out of the men’s team and women’s team, I actually want the women to win more. It’s got to mean more to them, surely? They don’t have anywhere near the exposure or publicity that the men do in their normal club or country situations. The World Cup is the pinnacle of the English men’s game, followed by the Euro’s. I think winning the Champion’s League or Premiership would mean more to most of the men, than winning an Olympic Gold Medal. I’m not saying it wouldn’t mean anything, but it wouldn’t be their main ambition. Continue reading
