The late 1990s were a strange time for Ian Wright. Though he cut an increasingly peripheral figure at his beloved Arsenal, and was eventually shipped out to West Ham in 1998 to join John Hartson at the Gunners' very own elephant's graveyard, he certainly was in demand within the media.

The League Cup has bounced from sponsor to sponsor over the years, with Littlewoods, Rumbelows, Worthington's, Carling, Capital One and even the national Milk Marketing Board all paying through the snout to ally their marque with English football's tertiary tournament since 1981.

And the next one off the production line sees Kammy getting his kit off. The Sky Sports presenter gives the best footballing shampoo advert since Jason McAteer was in his heyday before [.

Nunez Dive Against Fulham

Footy/Soccer Blog at related • 1 view

Really shocking dive from Argentine footballer Nunez in the Fulham vs Wisla Krakow match, Moussa Dembélé raised an arm and pushed Nunez on the shoulder only for the player to fall down and roll around on the floor. The referee obviously thought Moussa Dembélé had punched Nunez and so gave him a straight red card.

My my, adverts just keep coming back to bite Ryan Giggs in the ass at the moment don't they?

If you don't fully understand why this is 'unfortunate', I suggest you either hunt down a copy of yesterday's Daily Mail or try googling 'Ryan Giggs takes brotherly love far too literally'.

Advertising hoardings mock Manchester United star Wayne Rooney’s transfer request

A cheeky advert for Teletext Holidays poked fun at want-away Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney during last night's match between Brazil and England. The hoardings read: "Desperate to get away like Wayne?" Rooney himself would not have been offended by the advert. It did not appear in the stadium and was instead overlaid on top [.

Book Review: “32 Programmes” by Dave Roberts

Twohundredpercent at related • 0 views

It doesn't take much to bring out the obsessive in many men of any age, and this is something that advertisers and hawkers have been aware of for a long time and acting upon this sort of impulse with greater and greater sophistication in recent years. Football supporters, of course, can be amongst the worst for obsessive behaviour, and one of the more obvious manifestations of this comes in the form of football programmes.

Like this, only... better!

Stoke City have pioneered their way to a few footballing firsts of late; famously becoming the first side to openly field a gibbon in their first team a few years back and, in the process, also finding themselves ahead of the curve by providing said gibbon with a cutting-edge smock to wipe his balls off on.

In this country we're good at being cynical, but also at putting our principles aside in the name of 'not making a fuss or being negative'. So with the budget-busting, school/education/younameit-costing Olympic Games coming to London, we've all had to take off our thinking caps and Back the Bid. No, that was before.

You might remember Wieden + Kennedy from those Nike World Cup 2010 adverts, or, you know, television in general. They're back at it again for the Euros ahead of the Euros, but with a distinctly global flavor.

The only thing to say would be this: it's brilliant and it's best enjoyed in HD, full screen and before the final cut if you're a heterosexual gent, because no, not really hungry for more Cristiano in a belly shirt, thanks much.

The Championship is a few days away and is swiftly followed by the return of the Premiership season.

The former Sweden and Nigeria manager Lars Lagerbäck has revealed this week that he has held preliminary talks with the FAW regarding the vacant position of the national coach of Wales. He has in the past starred in a couple of adverts on Swedish TV, that I feel need to be documented here:

Ultimately I feel it's unlikely that Lagerbäck will take on the role of Wales manager.
