This photograph just appeared online, of several Spurs stars modelling next year’s kit, and from the blurry camera phone image it looks like is IS the abomination we saw early leaks of months ago.

With the World Cup just over 40 days to go, Kitbag.com have helped Mud.Sweat.Badges take a look back at World Cup footballs from the past 40 years. From the first adidas Tango to this year’s Jabulani, they are all in this top drawer gallery below. The balls themselves will be on display soon at the brand’s pop-up store in Market Street, Manchester, very soon.

These little fellas have appeared on eBay. Can we get excited about 1970s Leeds stocking garters? Yes, we can.
The chap who owns this Frank Gray stocking tab is a big Leeds collector, whose website claims he’s on a mission to own every Leeds shirt, match worn, ever used. But for the time being, let’s pore over these little momentos of a time when socks wouldn’t stay up on their own.
Our second guest blog, is written by Kitbag.com’s James Honess. The PR dynamo takes a lingering walk through a multicoloured memory lane of the world’s naughtiest goalkeeper jerseys.
“Recent research by sports psychologists has revealed that players miss almost twice as many spot kicks when the goalkeeper wears a red shirt, compared with blue, green or yellow. Whether this bodes well for England’s ‘keepers in South Africa remains to be seen with David James and the other likely lads due to wear blue or yellow. Predictably, Germany’s number 1 will be wearing red.

Sometimes an item of sportswear comes along that transcends ‘design,’ and becomes ‘art’. Enough bollocks- here at Mud.Sweat.Badges, we’ve created these limited edition canvases using wanky photographs of a top-line football boot.
I got these the other day, which I presume are the gloves David James will be wearing in the World Cup. I’m just scouting through justkeepers and prodirectsoccer to find out if these are commercially available with the three lions on…either way, these were worn by David. I saw it with my own peepers. I got these signed for a very special person.

Check these beauties out on eBay. I’m not sure who George and Summer are, but their names are embroidered onto John Terry’s tongues. Perhaps they’re two tarts he’s knocking off (wow, I can’t write that on my Umbro blog!)
Check the photos of Terry handing the boots over to some kids… Read the rest of this entry »
Nike have commissioned various crayons, (or ‘illustrators’ as non-magazine people call them), to create alternative emblems for various national teams’ shirts. Most crayons I know don’t ‘get’ football at all, which in my eyes gives them a fresh viewpoint on what a football crest should look like. Anyway, here they are…enjoy.

I was fortunate to train at the Portsmouth training camp, and got to see what goes on behind the scenes at a Premiership club’s facilities. I obviously enjoyed seeing all the boots stacked up as far as the eye could see, but what was really interesting were the notices on the wall, which detailed all the fines players will recieve should they swear or even be late for training! Enjoy…
