After the usual Bank Holiday weekend spent keeping up to date with football scores while enjoying a 99 in the park I thought it was time to do a bit of a kit round up.
A great video over at Live for football shirts of a Flamengo shirt being tested to the limit which puts in perspective the worry over how much 'bobbling' a shirt might have when placing a bid on eBay. On a side note it is a bit sad to see Olympikus being replaced as shirt manufacturer though not really a surprise.
The Daily Mail did a pretty random article on famous shirt swaps over the years, though I didn't realise this tradition could be traced back so exactly to England France match in 1931.
Not football related but this article in the Belfast Telegraph brought to my attention the fact that Rory McIlroy will not endorse an alcoholic beverage. Though after seeing those Santander TV ads I am just hoping he gives the 'acting' a miss for a while.
And a great post over at the ever excellent Hull City Kits about the perils of changing team colours and the conclusion that "A football club is not just a business or one man’s toy, it is a beloved civic entity with an identity that matters to many" is hard to argue with.
