England Under-17s won a World Cup recently by coming from two goals down to whup Spain 5-2 in the final, but you might've known that good old Danny Murphy would still be able to sap all the joy and ebullience out of everything.

An ex-England international himself, Murphy was thoroughly disheartened to see the Under-17 squad decide to reverse their shirts while collecting their winners' medals, thus obscuring the Three Lions crest.

Hard to believe we know, but it was five years ago to the very day that Olivier Giroud and Francis Coquelin entertained the nation by getting all confuzzled at the business end of Arsenal's chaotic 7-5 victory over Reading in the fourth round of the League Cup.

After somehow conspiring to go 4-0 down within the 37 minutes, Arsenal pulled a heroic comeback out of their collective derriere thanks to late goals from Laurent Koscielny and Theo Walcott in the 89th and 96th minute respectively before the final whistle thweeped at the Madejski Stadium.

Due to a rather unfortunate production error, Montpellier HSC recently found themselves with a large surplus of misspelled jerseys they were unable to shift.

A glitch in the manufacturing process meant that every Montpellier shirt produced for the 2017/18 both player issue and the replicas being sold in the club shop ended up with an 'L' being accidentally dropped from the club crest.

There's a reason for everyone to look good at the World Cup. After all, if you can't look good while winning, what's the point?

Japan's reason is damn good: they represent one of the world's biggest fashion hubs, perhaps the single biggest fashion hub, in Tokyo. Therefore they must put on a show and do honor to the living spirit of Hidetoshi Nakata, who's surely critiquing their every fashion move.

Premier League Shirts, now only 20 Million Pounds

The Offside at related • 0 views

The numbers are in on Premier League shirt sponsorships for this coming season, and, as expected, they are mind-numbingly ridiculous. The 20 clubs in the English top flight brought in a total of £99.75 million for putting names on shirts this season, up from a paltry £72 million last season. That's an impressive average of just under 5 million quid per team.

While we're on the subject of obsessing about shirts...

Sounders HQ should be taking notes from this guy (or gal).

Hell, after looking at the rest of the gallery, the league as a whole should pony up for a consulting fee right now (with the understanding that goddamn adidas™ still sucks in fantasyland—witness the New England kits—though the Packers ones aren't bad).

Color Blind (More Shirt Talk? Really?)

The DC United third shirt announcement got me thinking about the distribution of shirt colors in MLS, notably the common complaint amongst league fans that "everything is red and blue" with navy blue often singled out as a particularly egregious offender.

Another day, another brilliant Puma kit for the African nations.

Ghana's nickname doesn't have quiet the ferocity of an indomitable lion, the mystical grandeur of an elephant of the precociousness of a fennec in short, they ain't an animal but Puma has still done more with a simple black star than most kits at the World Cup have done with twice as much.

When playing with such flair, such panache, not to mention toting a European trophy in behind, rolling in style is mandatory. And style often means fresh, new, crisp.

Looks like the individualistic style will have to come from the football, then. Adidas has run out nearly identical kits for Spain the home red and the black away which mirror their "generic" line for the 2010 World Cup.
