Various football related odds and ends here. This stuff tends to be more topical so I’ve tried to add a caption to each picture to put them in some sort of historical context. If you don’t like football, look away now. If you do like football, pour yourself a Rubicon and click on the images to make them bumper size.
Here’s how I imagine Everton’s manager, fiery Scot David Moyes, unwinds after a gruelling 90 minutes on the sidelines.
I once saw former Forest centre half Des Walker in the Co-op on Ilkeston Road. Strange thing was, he wasn’t on a motorbike; he drove off in a car.
Rafa Benitez was getting an awful lot of stick from them Chelsea fans. Here he is enjoying happier times with the squirrels on Formby Beach.
I drew this after lowly Wigan knocked Everton out of the cup. I imagined Everton’s manager, fiery Scot David Moyes, to be FURIOUS. I think I’ve captured this well here. I feel the chest hair some how adds to his angry disposition.
Saint and Greavesie, Second Summer of Love. Saint and Greavesie were massive in 1989. Here I’ve combined their irreverent style of punditry with the symbolism of the popular musical movement of the day.
I drew this just before the draw for the FA Cup quarter finals. I was remembering more austere times when Graham Kelly and Bert Millichip acted as MC’s
I drew this after Rio Ferdinand announced that he would not be re-joining the England squad after all. Don’t blame him myself. Anyway, here I imagine Roy picking himself up and putting the whole saga behind him. Roy has a fantastic head of hair. So I imagined him nipping out to Boots to buy a new bottle of hairspray as a sort of ‘pick me up’ treat.
This was just after Michael Owen announced his retirement. Now he has plenty of time to complete jigsaws of horses.
A big Jurgen Klinsmann fan requested this one. Apparently, Jurgen has a chopper.
Here I depict what happened when I saw Roy Keane in the WH Smiths at Stockport train station. True story.
